If you are the fan of macchiato, cappuccino, mocha, espresso, or filter coffee, you need to choose the right coffee machines that can make you the right amount of coffee you want to start your day. Thing is, selecting the right mocha coffee machine depends not just on the type of coffee you consume, but how much effort, money and time you wish to invest in its brewing process. There’re three different kinds of the espresso machines explained in this article and they are automatic machines, semi-automatic machines & pod-style machines.
Types of Coffee Machine to Choose
Automatic coffee machines can grind beans, tamp it and make espresso for you and just have to put these beans & water in the machine.
Semi-automatic machines may want you to grind these beans, tamp it and time the shot. It means you will have to do a bit of more work to make your espresso but can give you control on taste of mocha and espresso.
Pod-style coffee machines make use of pods you put in the machine that make the espresso. They’re easy and fast to use but will not taste as fresh like automatic or semi-automatic machines.
Suppose you want a bit of flexibility in making espresso, ristretto or cappuccino, the manual espresso machine that what you see in most of coffee shops will be the right selection for you. Downside is you will have to learn to grind & tamp them manually, steam your milk, clean this machine & repeat this process for each cup you make.
