What to think about before buying coffee equipment

- Do you care about what it looks like? Color?
- Are you the type of person who loves the latest technology and gadgets?
- Do you prefer simplicity?
- How fast should your coffee be ready?
But how do you find the absolute best coffee machine for you? I go into that in-depth here on the site, where we take a closer look at some of the things worth considering. Choose from one of the categories above to narrow down the options. Or: You can find a complete list of all our reviews here.
What kind of coffee do you want?
What’s your favorite way to drink coffee? Is there anyone else you want to be able to make coffee for? What do they like?
When choosing coffee equipment, this is an excellent place to start. Once you have selected a type of coffee, the options are narrowed down, and then you are one step closer to finding the best option for you.
The coffee machines that we have tested are ordinary coffee machines that brew ordinary coffee in various shapes and forms. (We do not test and review professional barista equipment but are strictly focused on the “normal” consumer).
How much coffee should you brew?
There is a big difference in how much coffee one machine can brew at a time. In our article section, there are examples of machines that can brew anything from a single cup and up to three liters on a single brew. Machines that can brew up to about ten cups of coffee are the standard.
If you need coffee equipment for an office you’ll want something that can do larger quantities.
It can be challenging to brew tasty coffee in smaller quantities if you have a machine that is made to brew ten or fifteen cups. It is therefore not an advantage to choose such a machine just to be on the safe side. We suggest you only get the really big one if you need it.
How much do you want to spend?
There are coffee machines in all price ranges, so if you are looking for a cheap coffee machine, you can easily find it, but you can also choose a more luxurious version.
As with most other things, coffee machines usually have a relationship between price and quality. You’ll generally get what you pay for. However, if you don’t need all the fancy features then you could save money by choosing an option without them.
You pay for features like a built-in timer, automatic water supply, built-in Wi-Fi, and other smart things that can make your life a little easier.

Style and design
After you’ve considered the features and capabilities, it also makes good sense to consider what design you want. There are also machines in many different styles, so you can find a model that fits your particular kitchen and your style.
Of course, although the most important thing is that your machine brews good coffee, of course, it does not matter if it also looks good and decorates your kitchen.
