After the initial purchase of a single serve coffee machine which ranges in price from $85 to $190 the cost per cup of coffee is much less than that of a cup of coffee from a gourmet coffeehouse. The average cost per cup of coffee is anywhere from $0.65 to $1.25 with a Keurig coffee machine. Compare this to upwards of $5.00 per cup at a coffeehouse. You will save a lot of money with the single serve coffee brewer.
The drip coffee machines are usually electric ones that heat the water and then pump it over the grounds. However a stove top type is still used. The water is boiled in a tea kettle and poured into a top reservoir with holes in it. A smaller container below holds the coffee grounds usually with a filter. When the water finishes dripping through to the bottom the coffee is ready to drink. Both the electric and stove top makers come in many brands and in a wide range of prices. The less expensive ones require a filter while others may come with a permanent gold-coated coffee filter or other permanent filter.
Thankfully all that has changed. With the evolution of the High Street big brands of Coffee Bars. The growth in Café Culture in the UK and the influence of the well known "American" food outlets. The publics perception of Coffee has changed and become more refined. In fact the UK is now officially a nation of coffee drinkers. To respond to this many independent businesses have moved towards more sophisticated methods of producing coffee to compete in the coffee market. From the traditional Italian style Espresso machine to the more complex Bean to Cup automatic coffee machines it is possible to produce a wide range of high quality espresso based coffees very simply.
A common coffee machine is the espresso machine. These machines make coffee by using steam that is pumped through tightly packed finely ground coffee beans. The result of this process varies according to how the operator chooses to make it which depends on the options available for their machine. These machines vary from one that simply pumps steam at Bar 15 pressure through a porta filter that holds ground coffee to programmable ones. Programmable machines will grind your coffee make your espresso your way and even dispose the spent grounds and then sends a clean rinse through the machine. Some machines may have other attachments to make cappuccinos and lattes. Some machines similar to espressos use a higher pressure of 19 bars.
