These days, time is more important than ever. Getting yourself a coffee machine that will save you time and effort in the morning is pretty vital. Making a coffee can be an art form, but you don’t want to be getting up an hour early to make yourself a cup, especially when technology is there to do it for you. The bean-to-cup coffee machines that have been developed in recent years are some of the finest pieces of kitchenware around and will do all the hard work of making your coffee so you don’t have to.

The bean to cup machine grinds the beans for you, meaning that you can have the freshest coffee without having to go through the messy process of preparing the beans. If you are going to choose one of these state of the art machines, there’s a few things you’ll want to consider.

What features does the machine offer

You’ll want to think about what features your machine has. Some coffee machines for instance, will allow you to use either ground coffee or coffee beans, which is ideal in case you can’t get your hands on the right coffee. One such machines is the De’Longhi Magnifica, which costs around £500 and is one of the best machines available unless you are going to pay thousands. The machine features all the barista’s dream features and will make wonderful espresso at the touch of a button and perfect frothy milk.

Another brand worth considering is Gaggia, who make the second most popular bean to cup coffee machine after De’Longhi. These machines largely offer much the same as the De’Longhi, but be sure to check the specification of each individual machine before you buy.

The difference in appearance from one coffee machine to another is huge and this is likely to be a major factor in your choice.
