There are few appliances that guests gather around in conversation. Coffee machines and espresso makers are those appliances. Since you are taking your purchase seriously (why else would you be reading this?) you will find our buying guide quite helpful.
If you are in the market for a new coffee or espresso machine, get ready for a few options. Before you go to the store, try to think of the reasons you are getting this new machine and whether you want a coffee maker, espresso maker, or a combination of the two. Coffee is the general term, a drink made from combining hot water and coffee beans.
Espresso is a type of coffee, made by forcing steam or boiling water under pressure through coffee beans. Other popular types of coffee include lattes — which are made with hot espresso and milk — and cappuccinos — a mixture of espresso and steamed milk, usually with whipped cream on top. So decide if you are a plain old coffee drinker or someone who wants to add a little more variety to the daily routine or entertainment of guests. Good luck, there are a lot of choices out there!
