Pinpointing the best machines wasn’t easy.

Factors like design, make, brewing technology, coffee taste improvement features, and control functions are essential for the taste and overall quality of the beverages.

I was absolutely strict about them as I require nothing else but perfection. At the same time, the individual preferences of the buyer also come into play. That is why I have tried to make the range of my top choices as diverse as possible.

One area where everyone seems to have a different taste is capacity. You get to decide how many cups you want your machine to make at the same time.

I’d like to point out that the major coffee machine maker brands all offer a variety of options when it comes to this factor. The so-called extra features have always captured my attention and my advice is for all buyers to pay close attention to them too.

They are usually the ones which make a specific model stand out. Of course, they must have a practical purpose and serve it well. Always evaluate how a particular feature will improve the coffee and/or the overall experience which you have with the machine. Let’s move onto the devices available at present.
