There’s nothing quite like a fresh, hot cup of coffee–and even better when you can make it right at home in your own kitchen. The latest coffee machines on the market allow you to brew coffee that tastes just like it came from your favorite coffee shop (some would argue even better). Additionally, today’s smart coffee machines have been meticulously engineered and designed; they bring beauty and innovative design into your home.
Another consideration of a coffee machine is how “eco friendly” it is; some of the best coffee machines on the market do minimize energy output as well as help eliminate unnecessary waste.
French Press: An Updated Classic, and Eco-Friendly
The French Press is one of the oldest coffee machines but remains one of the preferred coffee making methods by many coffee aficionados. One of the newest models we found, the Bodum COLUMBIA Coffee maker, is a French Press-style maker in a modern design. Made of stainless steel in a sculptural pitcher-like container, the Bodum COLUMBIA can produce 12 full cups in just one hit, and its double wall design acts as a thermos to keep your coffee hot. Using no filter or electricity, it’s also an eco-friendly choice that keeps waste to a bare minimum.
Coffee and Espresso Machines: Stunning Design and Multi-Functional Ability
This Gaggia RI9833/70 Brera coffee machine boasts stylish design that you’ll love to look at every day. It comes in a brushed stainless steel and can be displayed right on your kitchen counter. The Gaggia allows you to make two cups of espresso simultaneously (perfect for coffee with friends). It also features a milk frother, allowing you to make perfect cappucinos and lattes at home.
A step up in size and design from the Gaggia, The Caple CM460 Coffee Machine can be built in to your kitchen cabinetry and offers the best in sleek, understated design. Made of stainless steel, the CM460 features black glass accents and modern LED lighting. Any guest who visits your home will notice this gorgeous appliance! Its automatic controls make it simple to make a variety of coffee beverages…espresso, lattes, regular coffee, and of course, cappucino. Because it uses no paper filters in its brewing process–and because of its smart design–the Caple CM460 may be considered one of the more eco-friendly coffee machines on the market.
Similar to the Caple, the Miele Built in Coffee Maker offers the same stunning design and even more features. Like the Caple, there’s no need to fill a reservoir with water and clean a pot daily. The Miele also offers a storage drawer to hold all of your coffee accessories (grounds, beans, mugs, etc) so you can keep everything together in one place–a highly unique and practical feature.
The DeLonghi Icona Pump Espresso Blue Coffee Maker is one of the most whimsical designs available. Its sleek blue finish is exceptionally modern and adds a unique, stylish accent to any kitchen. It also has high-performance features to make a variety of espresso and frothy beverages, and for added flexibility, this machine has 2 in 1 filter holders, which enables the user to use ground coffee and Easy Serving Espresso pods.
