Are you a coffee enthusiast but struggling to see the benefits of having your own espresso machine at home? There aren’t many better things to have in the morning than a fresh espresso coffee to wake yourself up before a busy day at work. It’s natural to weigh up the pros and cons, however, most machines will last many years and you will most definitely use it a lot over the years! In this article we will discuss the pro and cons of buying a domestic coffee machine.
We all hate waking up in the morning for a long day at work and want to minimise the tasks that need to be completed before we step foot out of the door. Add in the extra task of making yourself a cup of coffee and it could be a bad start to the day! Coffee Machines do all of the work for you, the coffee will brew itself while you’re doing other jobs around the house. There is also the option for putting your espresso, latte or cappuccino into a travel mug, so you can drink on the go. Your own espresso machine in your house will make mornings a little bit more bearable.
Reduce Spending in Coffee Shops
Many people that commute into work often stop off at the coffee shop on their way to work. Although we should be supporting our local independent coffee shops through this pandemic, we need to think about our own pockets too. Coffee is an expensive item to buy and isn’t cheap in any coffee shop you go to. Therefore, in the long run a home coffee machine would save you money as it will only be a onetime expense (unless your machine breaks). One serving from a machine will also aid in saving waste as it is better than making a pot, which may go to waste.
Ability to Experiment with Coffee
Producing coffee in your home allows you to play around with alternative blends without being confined to the brand of your favourite coffee shop. You can also reduce the feeling when your favourite barista isn’t working and their replacement doesn’t make it the way you like.
Matching the Machine to your Skill
Before looking to buy a home coffee machine you need to take into consideration a few things. How often you’re going to use the machine. Whatever machine you purchase, it’s worth spending some time leaning how it works to use it to its full potential. From buying a suitable coffee for the machine to tamping the coffee right. Some coffee shops charge up to £4.00 for an espresso and there is a reason why… they’re highly trained and use the best coffee beans. If you can’t reproduce this at home, then you may be returning to the coffee shops to get your coffee fix.
