Things do not move until a cup of coffee is sipped in the morning. There is a saying, a lot happens over a cup which is correct in totality. A lot of friendships start with a cup, deals sealed, helps to bond with our friends, family and colleagues and even gives the company when we are reminiscing alone. The whiff of aroma coming from a freshly brewed coffee is like an oxygen for the coffee lover and a thing to die for.
This aroma to die for only comes when it’s made in the correct machine and the in the correct way. There are a number of coffee machines available in the market depending on our need but the best home coffee maker is something that we all are on the lookout. The kind of coffee we brew and the available space. Some of the different types of coffee machines best suited for our homes are the following:
Drip coffee makers: In these coffee makers the coffee ground is put in a filter and boiling water is poured over it. The coffee decoction then drips through the filter and gets collected in the jar underneath. The paper filter used also filters out the essential oils present in the coffee which contribute to the increase of the cholesterol levels in the body.
Coffee maker with the grinder: In this kind of machine, the whole coffee beans are put in the machine, which first grinds the coffee and then brews it. The brew of the freshly ground coffee beans is more fresh, and aromatic. The machines from big brands are very compact with simple clear command buttons and the whole coffee making process is fully automated, and the result is a flavorful cup of coffee. The coffee connoisseurs prefer this coffee machine as its much fresher than the coffee from drip machines.
French press: coffee brewed in this is very dense an heavy, but has its own taste. The coffee ground is steeped in hot water for 4 minutes. Then the plunger is used to press on the coffee. The coffee brew obtained, should be decanted immediately as it may over brew and turn bitter.
Under cabinet coffee maker: It is a popular choice as it takes very small space on the kitchen counter and is easy to use. It looks cool, as it does not add to the clutter of the kitchen.
There is no specific best home coffee maker but certainly, the preparations make it the best. There are a lot of choices to pick from, depending on one’s taste and easy to use features.
