Black Friday Coffee Machine Deals Buying Guide
BLACK FRIDAY COFFEE MACHINE DEALS BUYING GUIDE 2018
The Black Friday coffee machine that suits you best depends on: how much coffee you brew, how fast you want it and whether you’d like to adjust the strength. You can spend more on a coffee machine with lots of special features, but some of the most basic machines still make a decent cup of coffee. You will see a variety of machines when you shop. Automatic filter systems grind and brew. Single serve pod machines and some specialty coffee machines filter. Coffee machines have been around for decades, they slowly release hot water over the ground beans making coffee that filters into a carafe.
BLACK FRIDAY FILTER COFFEE MACHINES
We looked at filter machines deals and found you can get a very good one for as little as £40. Upping your budget can get you a thermal carafe which keeps your coffee warm without scorching on a burner, programmable brew strength, or a self-clean feature. Some filter machines can serve up for a crowd making up to 14 cups. It is worth noting, in the real world a cup measures eight ounces, but for coffee machines a cup is typically five to six ounces. In fact, your favourite mug probably holds 10 to 12 ounces! You will want a machine that brings the water to the optimal temperature to make the best brew. In tests, temperature sensors are place into the ground coffee beans to see if the water reaches between 195 and 205 degrees and maintains it for five to six minutes. You do not want a machine that is hard to fill or use when you are desperate for that first cup in the morning! Make sure your machine has a pause and serve feature so that this doesn’t happen. Take into consideration whether the controls are confusing or if the carafe is hard to handle.
BLACK FRIDAY SELF SERVE MACHINES
Self-serve models store the coffee in a heated tank rather than a carafe. You dispense a cup at a time and keep the rest hot. They hold five to 12 cups of coffee and costs £60 to £100. Self-serve machines are convenient but we have found that like all coffee machines, some could not reach or hold the optimum brewing temperature. If you consider yourself a connoisseur and want the quickest time between real beans and hot coffee, get a grind and brew machine. Pour the beans on top, add water, grind and brew. Look at the components before you buy, some of these machines have many parts and can be time-consuming to clean.
BLACK FRIDAY SINGLE SERVE POD MACHINES
Single serve pod coffee machines are becoming more and more popular. You simply add water to the reservoir and pop in a pod. These machines are super convenient. You can even brew directly into your go cup. Single serve coffee machines can be as little as £50 going up to £450 for a model that looks great on your worktop. They offer dozens of flavour options, but many pods are neither recyclable nor biodegradable, so factor that in if you choose a pod system. We looked at how long the single serve machines take to brew. Some can take as long as four minutes to get a hot cup. Some models have a little basket allowing you to use your own coffee in a reusable pod, but as a rule you’ll have to buy the coffee pods that go with the machine. We find that pods usually don’t deliver on flavour as much as they do convenience. As for cleaning, just like filter coffee machines, you must clean the single-serve machines: some may require you to use their special solution. Some coffee machines fall outside the regular filter and single serve category because water doesn’t simply pass through the ground coffee. Instead, to extract more of the flavours from the ground beans, the water and ground beans are combined for a period of time before dispensing the coffee. like a jazzed-up French press! Some models suspend and stir the ground coffee: this allows you to control how long and how actively the coffee is stirred. You can spend over £500 for a specialty machine.
BLACK FRIDAY COMBINATION COFFEE MACHINES
There are combination machines serving up coffee and espresso or coffee and hot water for tea. These machines may serve up espresso, cappuccino or filter coffee, depending on the configuration.
The most basic coffee machines can make a decent cup of coffee, but there are many features to choose from depending on your needs.
- Like to wake up to the smell of fresh brewed coffee? Select one with a timer, add water and coffee, set it and go to bed.
- Whether you’re brewing a pot or a single cup, some machines come with an insulated carafe or cup to keep your coffee warm at home or on the go.
- A bulky carafe that does not easily pour out that last drop, can be a downer, so give it a lift before you buy.
- Height-adjustable filter trays can accommodate small cups or tall mugs and with a touch of a bold button you can pump up your cup from weak to strong!
