Every coffee lover in the world would not think twice about investing money in Home Coffee Machines. Today’s coffee world and the one that was in the 16th century have many differences. The technology has changed the world to what it is today, and thanks to it; now we have Home Coffee Machines even for $50. OK, let me ask you a question! Why do you drink coffee? Well, millions of people in the world drink coffee due to many reasons. Some people drink it for the taste (like me.) Some are addicted to the energizing effect of it. Some people do it for fashion. No matter what your reason is, doing it within the safe limits comes with many advantages.
Coffee came to this world in the 16th century. Anyway, we have information to prove that coffee was consumed by people even before the 16th century. What do you know about caffeine? People in the 16th century knew nothing about caffeine. Caffeine is the most discussed substance in coffee that is responsible for the energizing effect that coffee brings to us. This energizing effect is the one that is being misused today. I mean, some people exceed the daily recommended coffee intake to get more energized. Let’s talk about all the side effects it can cause later in this article. Well, even I have a coffee cup before I hit the gym for an extra punch. But I never exceed the recommended daily coffee intake (4-5 cups a day.)
How Home Coffee Machines have the changed the coffee world? OK, time was there when people had to visit coffee shops to have their favorite beverage. Coffee machines were restricted to coffee shops in those days. Well, coffee shops are there today as well. Can Home Coffee Machines replace coffee shops? It has already happened to some extent. Still, millions of people visit coffee shops to have shop-style coffee as we can’t get it right like the barista in coffee shops. I have had several Home Coffee Machines over the past decade, and I have an espresso maker now, but I go to the coffee shop every weekend for a perfect coffee cup. So, it is safe to say that coffee shops will exist for the next coming decades amid people buying machines for their homes.
What machine type should you buy for home use? Well, it depends on how many cups you drink per day and your preferred coffee style. For example, if you just crave for black coffee; buying a simple filter machine is enough. Home Coffee Machines are now available on the market that can produce various coffee styles automatically. Yes, automatic coffee machines are expensive than filter coffee machines. Anyway, an automatic coffee machine can add so much personality to your kitchen, which many coffee lovers take into consideration when shopping for a coffee machine.
If you are a person who gives priority to convenience; buying automatic Home Coffee Machines is highly advisable (it can be even a simple pod/capsule machines.) How much would you invest in a coffee machine? Don’t worry! You can buy a basic coffee machine for $50 today. Automatic coffee machines are available for under $1000. Did you know that some coffee lovers don’t hesitate to invest even $5000 for Home Coffee Machines? Expensive coffee machines are usually called espresso machines. Espresso machines can brew 100% super-fine espresso as they use pressure to brew espresso from coffee beans. Where in general home coffee makers, hot water is just passed through ground coffee (no pressure is involved.)
Do you really want to invest money in Home Coffee Machines?
Well, this is a thing to consider and discuss in detail here. Why not? If you are a regular coffee drinker who drinks 4-5 cups per day; buying a machine for home use would save you time and money in the long run. Also, the convenience — it is like having a washing machine in your home. Going to the laundry every day to washing clothes vs buying a washing machine for home use; which option is more convenient? Sachet coffee won’t give you that “fresh coffee” feeling. On the other hand, now we don’t have time to visit coffee shops daily. In my opinion, every coffee lover in the world should invest money in Home Coffee Machines, which will make it easy for him/her.
Daily cleaning and proper maintenance are important actions for the long life of the machine. If not, the money you spend on the machine will just be a waste. Can you afford it? I don’t think so. Well, cleaning the machine and maintenance is not rocket science these days. Modern Home Coffee Machines manufacturers clearly explain it in the catalog that they provide with their products. Most coffee machines just have two parts: the machine and the pot. So, cleaning such machines is a piece of cake. Anyway, if you plan to invest money in an expensive coffee maker or an espresso machine; know that its maintenance and cleaning is somewhat challenging and time-consuming. Also, manual espresso machines don’t directly produce coffee styles such as latte and mocha. Operating manual machines need some practice and knowledge of coffee styles. If not, the money you spent on the machine would just be a waste again. So, taking an online barista class is a thing to consider by every coffee lover in the world.
Home Coffee Machines buying guide
Filter, pod, bean-to-cup, espresso, manual, semi-automatic, and automatic are the machine types available in the market today. Filter, pod, and bean-to-cup machines are easy to operate and maintain. Espresso, manual, automatic, and semi-automatic machines are complicated designs that are more expensive and robust than other Home Coffee Machines. The use of super-automatic coffee machines has been on the rise in world-leading restaurant chains. These machines can produce the highest number of cups per hour, which is a must-have feature for commercial and bulk use.
Some final words
So, now you have understood the way how Home Coffee Machines have changed the coffee world. Buy a machine that suits your lifestyle. Well, some people buy coffee machines as for decorative pieces, and I can’t say anything about it. No matter what coffee machine type you buy for home use; don’t make it an excuse to exceed the daily recommended coffee intake. Too much of everything can cause side effects, including coffee. Pregnant women and patients who take regular medication should consult a doctor before consuming coffee. See you again soon with another article!
