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.
A wonderful traditional Italian concentrated coffee beverage is espresso. This is brewed by forcing hot water (195 degree Fahrenheit) at high pressure (90 bars) through special coffee ground to a consistency between extremely fine and powder. The appliances that are used to prepare the beverages are the espresso machines. The knowledge and efficiency in making the finest espressos is considered as a craft and the baristas who are adept in using the espresso machines professionally are regarded as skilled craftsmen in this light.
There are several different kinds of single serve coffee machines on the market but I have a Keurig coffee machine. For the Keurigs coffee machines there are over 250 different kinds of coffee to choose from. They call their pod a K-cup. K-cups come in the caffeinated and non-caffeinated versions as well. So you are essentially able to brew a gourmet-style cup of coffee in the comfort of your own home at any time of the day.
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.
