There are many types of coffee machine on the market and depending on how often you intend to use it and how many cups you want it to make, you could spend under £100 on a basic one or up to £500 or more for a top model. Whatever your requirements, choosing coffee machines at Argos can help to save on costs.
The most expensive coffee machines on the market are bean to cup coffee machines, which are so called because they allow you to add your own coffee beans, which are ground for you to make the coffee. Hot water is added to the ground coffee, which goes straight into your cup. Milk frothers are also included with some models, allowing you to make lattes and cappuccinos. This machine is the equivalent of having a coffee shop in your own home.
For those who prefer to grind their own beans, a pump espresso machine would be the best choice. Not only do they allow you to use your own ground beans, but you are able to make more than one cup at a time. The water is heated in a separate tank to the perfect coffee making temperature and milk frothers can also be added if you wish.
If you do not want the fuss of dealing with coffee beans, a Pod coffee machine may be the product for you. With these machines, the coffee has already been ground, roasted and blended for you and placed in a sealed pod. When the pod is placed in the machine, the heated water is forced through it and the coffee goes straight into your cup. This is definitely the easiest and cleanest way to enjoy fresh coffee.
The cheapest and easiest to use devices are filter coffee machines. This type of machine boils the water, which flows through the ground coffee that has been placed in a paper or reusable filter. The coffee then flows into the jug that is provided underneath. The jug is on a hotplate, meaning fresh coffee stays hot for some time after being made. The size and variety of jugs available mean that this is ideal for making larger quantities.
Whether you are a coffee connoisseur or a budding amateur, the variety of machines on the market means that whatever your budget, or whatever type of coffee you prefer, there is bound to be something to suit your requirements.
