Buying the Right Espresso Maker For Your Home

by admin on August 2, 2010

If getting to the corner coffee shop is getting too expensive or the counter worker is making you a triple size espresso when he sees your face coming true the door, you know you need to go shopping for your own espresso maker. It has become so popular the last 10 years we hardly make our own coffee any more, we buy and we buy and a whole industry is build around our coffee needs. In the mean time you do not need an financial adviser to tell you that you can save a huge amount of money when you instead of going out just make your own espresso at home or at your workplace. Every penny helps and with buying your own espresso maker you can save many penny’s
What kind of espresso maker do you need?
You need to do your research when you are looking to buy a espresso maker for your home because there are two different kinds of machines. There is the steam driven kind and the pump driven kind and many of the real coffee connoisseurs say that there is a big difference between the both. And if we want to belief them the pump driven espresso makers are giving, although more expensive, the best quality.
But in the end it is you who needs to decide how important espresso is in your life. How often are you going to use the machine, is it something you are going to use every day, multiple times a day or just occasionally? If you are just drinking espresso occasionally than it doesn’t make sense to buy such a expensive kind of espresso maker like the pump driven one. You even need to consider if you will be better of buying at the coffee corner shop. But the steam driven machine is also a good option you do need to know that the latter needs to cool down between brews
Decision points
When you have decided what type of espresso maker you want there are some more things you need to consider and make decisions about:
- size – do they fit in your kitchen?
- removable drip trays – are they easy to clean?
- warming trays
- programmable timers – do you want your coffee ready when opening your eyes in the morning?
- do they have a frothing cup and function for making cappuccinos.
- color and design
With size you probably think that it is obvious not to buy something to big, but many people are coming home with kitchen appliances that are way to big and end up on the floor or on the kitchen table where they do not belong. So before you decide what espresso maker you want to buy, look first if it will actually fit.
The Taste of your espresso is the most important thing you would like to select your new espresso maker on, and this is also the hardest to try out. Taste is personal and most stores do not let you make a cup of espresso to see if you like it. So if you have friends, family or even co workers who have their own espresso maker at home, invite your self to their homes and try them out. In the real world you should probably buy you new machine at a store where they have a good return policy.
