Best Coffee Machines

The quality of a morning coffee can make or break your day. So for coffee lovers, it's crucial that you find a coffee maker or espresso machine that makes coffee just the way you like it. A reliable model feels like an investment, a terrible one like daylight robbery. Here's a quick overview of the different types of coffee machines and makers on the market to help you:

Drip coffee machines are simple, easy coffee makers. Coffee is placed in a filter and water is run over it, with the extracted brew dripping into the container below. They come in both automatic and manual versions.

Manual or semi-automatic coffee machines are the type of coffee machine for you if you're a true coffee enthusiast and want barista-level coffee at home. You can adjust every aspect of your coffee, such as the fineness of your grind or amount of water used.

Capsule coffee machines or automatic coffee pod machines are very easy to use; place a capsule or pod of ground coffee in a machine and it produces a shot of coffee.

Fully automatic coffee machines do everything for you, from freshly grinding coffee beans and frothing your milk. Simply put your cup under the spout of the machine and press a button.

Moka pots and percolators are the classic stovetop coffee makers (available in electric versions as well now) that were common in households before automatic, drip and espresso coffee machines came along. Small, cheap and easy to use, the coffee percolator or moka pot is also great for camping trips or travelling.

Built-in coffee machines are for those who are serious about their coffee and are undergoing a kitchen renovation. They may be an expensive addition, but built-in coffee machines fit seamlessly into the design of your kitchen without taking up valuable counter space.

If you choose a coffee machine that doesn't come with a grinder or milk frothing ability, here are some coffee grinders and milk frothers to choose from. Also, when you take your coffee to go, help reduce waste and keep our environment clean by investing in a reusable coffee cup or travel mug.

Choosing the best coffee machine for you isn't always easy when there are plenty to choose from, but we have many reviews to help you. Once you've made your decision, come back and write a review - it'll help others too!

Spoil yourselfAfter 9 years, my Rancillio is still producing great coffee results, so much so I now don't order coffee at cafes because 9 times out of 10 it is not what you get at home with the Rancillio.
Great robust machine. Show details

Good coffee, but prone to break downI had similar experiences to others described here. I like the machine when it is working, but I have had two of them break down, the second one after about six months. (This was a replacement machine so apparently not under warranty!) I hope that sunbeam are working on correcting what is clearly a design flaw. Show details

Probably the nicest coffee I've drank!I've had my Lavazza coffee machine for over 4 years. Far better built than the competitors machines and better priced.
The coffee is delicious and there is a good variety to choose from.
The only negative to this machine is the pods are expensive. Show details

Great Coffee machine, Love it!I purchased this as my first "bean grinder" type of coffees machine about 4 months ago.
Needless to say I absolutely love it!
No issues and makes a Cafe type coffee easily! Easy to keep clean and very easy to use for the "beginner" Show details ·  1

Can’t live withoutI absolutely love my new coffee machine, so easy to use and super easy to clean, I love the red indicator that pops up when the drip tray needs emptying. Have saved a small fortune being able to make great tasting coffee at home. Kids and husband love frothy hot chocolates. Have recommend to family and some have already purchased after using mine. Show details ·  1

Fantastic machineFrothers the milk well & heats the milk well. Easy to use & makes a lovely Crema. Also you can literally buy 50 Nespresso pods from eBay for $7.90. Thats 15c a pod. It's also compact & the pods are available across many coffee brands. Stay away from the Espressotoria machine & the rubbish ALDI Expressi brands. The ALDI brand is not reliable. Show details
