For many people, drinking coffee is one of the most enjoyable moments of the day. But how do you choose a coffee machine to make the best coffee possible? Here are the features that a good coffee maker should have.

Some people think that good coffee can only be had in a café. This is a misconception, as there are many good coffee makers available on the market today. Each of us can make our favorite beverages, and manufacturers are constantly offering more and more interesting solutions.

Functions of coffee machines

Choosing the best coffee machine depends mainly on individual preferences. Before buying it is worth to read the description, pros and cons and reviews of the model. Ask yourself what you want from the machine.

Ease of use

Intuitive interface and ease of use allow you to save time and quickly prepare a drink without problems. A coffee maker that takes too long to brew coffee will not work especially for people who live on the run.


A good coffee machine should be able to brew different types of coffee. If, in addition, you can make the drink with just a click or touch, the coffee maker will suit many people. Good multifunctional coffee makers are available at

Easy to clean

Before choosing a coffee maker, it is worth looking at whether it has removable parts. This will help to speed up its cleaning. Keep in mind that a clean machine is a guarantee of top quality coffee. Some models have a reminder feature and ask for general cleaning. You can find them here:

A feature that will make cleaning the coffee maker easier is the vacuum technology. It relies on the fact that the layer of water remaining in the brewing block after the coffee is brewed is sucked up and the coffee maker is dry inside.

Programming the coffee maker

Some espresso machine models have a customization and programming feature. This allows you to adjust the amount of coffee and water to suit your personal preferences and the utensils you use. You can highlight a certain type of beverage and lock out others. You can also use different modes that allow you to change the settings.

Espresso vs. filter coffee maker

Some of the most popular espresso machines are pour-over machines. In these models, coffee is brewed by pouring hot water through a filter filled with ground coffee. Depending on the model, up to 12 cups of coffee can be brewed in one go. In the case of filter coffee makers, it is worth noting whether the pot in which the coffee is placed holds the heat. It is also important that the water container has a scale so that you know how many cups of coffee you are preparing.

Espresso machines work on a slightly different principle. The boiling water and steam are forced through the finely ground coffee. When choosing an espresso machine, it is important to take into account the pressure of the water that is forced through the coffee. You can choose between capsule or ground coffee machines. They often have a built-in grinder or milk frothing device.

Coffee drinkers are also increasingly concerned about the noise level of their machines. However, it should be noted that models equipped with the function of grinding coffee beans, work louder.
