Coffee machines are an integral part of any household these days and are considered the best way of making the right cup of coffee. There are different types of these machines available based on the brewing principles.

Cafetières take the form of glass containers incorporating a wire filter attached to a plunger and you can make an exact amount of filter coffee. If you Compare Coffee made with a professional coffee machine vs a regular one, you will feel the difference. Its like comparing Starbucks to your regular Gas Station Coffee. Filter coffee machines come in different cup volumes and are very easy to use. Water simply drips slowly through a basket of ground coffee to infuse in a pot or carafe. The percolator variant needs the ground coffee to be put into a holder at the top, water in the bottom. Espresso and cappuccino coffee machines are steam-driven machines that produce very strong coffee.

The best way to save space and have a clutter free kitchen worktop is to have built in coffee machines. The built in coffee makers are plumbed directly into the electric and water supply and so manual re-filling is not necessary. Built in coffee machines which do not require plumbing are lighter on the pocket. Built in coffee makers with built in grinder brews coffee using fresh beans but would be an expensive buy.

Amongst the large number of coffee machine brands available, Gaggia S.p.A. is the best known Italian manufacturer of coffee machines for professional and household use and its name is synonymous with tradition and reliability the world over. Gaggia coffee machines have evolved over the decades going from the traditional lever controlling a pressure-generating piston to a fully automated mechanism which, at the touch of a button, activates the mechanism regulating the grinding, dosing and brewing of delicious espresso coffee.

Coffee machines bring about the ultimate convenience of just having to press a button to get a steaming cup of hot coffee in seconds.
