While selecting the best machine adequate importance must be given to the durability and life time of the machine. The lifetime of any coffee brewing machine depends upon the life of the heating filament that forms an integral part of any coffee machine. The heating filament is prone to wear and tear manufacturing defects and other malfunctions that may at times result in grave problems like shocks and short circuits causing destruction of the apparatus. Thus it is very essential to undergo a prior check up and detailed analysis of the heating filament and proper examination of its warranty before zeroing in on the product.
One of the popular coffee machines used today is a pod machine or pod brewer. These machines use pods or K-Cups which already have the grounds in a container. The machine creates very hot water or steam. When the pod or K-Cup is inserted into the machine it creates a hole for the pressurized water or steam to go through. Some espresso machines which were just mentioned above also have the ability to use pods or K-Cups.
In 1938 Milan coffee bartender Achille Gaggia filed a Patent for a steam-free coffee machine. Unlike its predecessors Gaggias design used a revolutionary piston mechanism which forced water through the coffee grounds at high pressure. It was his quest for the perfect espresso in 1930s Milan that gave birth to one of Italys most iconic brands and heralded the production of the Espresso as we know it. Traditional Espresso Coffee Machines are the type you see in Café Nero Costa Coffee etc.
Premium brands like Lavazza and Dualit are also available for your indulgence. Brands such as Bosch Gaggia De Longhi Siemens and Kitchenaid carry coffee makers that are budget friendly. Some of these brands are really well regarded in producing the best coffee machines and you are guaranteed that they will last.
