Cappuccino, Espresso Macchiato, Latte Macchiato….which one is your favourite? We take a look at three popular coffee machines, that all have the either the ‘home-connect’ or ‘amazon ‘Alexa’ functions to help you decide which one is right for you.

Who Makes The Best Home Coffee Machine?

In the not so distant past, we used to be able to grab a hot cup of coffee at our favourite local café on the way to the office. Our favourite barista would greet us and already have our morning brew started before we even place our order. They knew how we liked our coffee, and they knew how much cream, how many pumps of flavouring, and just how hot we liked it. After all, this was our morning routine 5 days a week for many years.

Today, however, things have changed. The pandemic has many of us working from home and that means we have to make our own coffee every morning. With the coffee maker we bought on sale when we first moved in. Chances are, it does one thing, brews regular coffee, and not very well. But our taste in coffee has matured since then and with us being home more, it’s time to upgrade our coffee maker. But which one do we buy?

When it comes to modern coffee machines, there is a wide range of choices available to us. From pod machines such as the Nespresso and Keurig, and drip coffee machines, to semi-automatic espresso machines which produce hot, delicious barista style coffee drinks in just a couple of minutes. No waiting in a queue and no risk of contracting the virus. If you are looking for that stylish, simple, uncluttered look for your kitchen and don’t want to lose your valuable worktop space but you want to still have a great cup of coffee then how about an integrated coffee machine…..

With that in mind, we are going to take a look at three popular coffee machines, that all have the either the ‘home-connect’ or ‘amazon ‘alexa’ functions to help you decide which one is right for you.
