Best Coffee Machines 2023: All the Machines to Make Your Morning Brew!

Fancy yourself a coffee snob but tired of buying mediocre takeaway coffee? The easiest way to give up buying coffee at your local café is to have café quality coffee at home. That’s right, you can become an at-home barista when you have the tools to do so! From pod-filled to fully automatic, here are our best coffee machines for 2023.

Buying a coffee machine is an exciting time for any coffee lover – and quite often an investment. Before feasting your eyes on something sparkly and handing over your hard-earned cash, you must know exactly what kind of coffee machine you want. Because they’re not all quite as easy as just pressing a button…

Best coffee machines: which one is for you?

  • DRIP FILTER COFFEE MACHINE – a drip filter coffee machine brews already ground coffee, filtering it through to a glass jug and keeping it at a hot drinking temperature for a couple of hours.
  • POD COFFEE MACHINE – a small unit coffee machine which takes pre-measured coffee pods, typically making one cup of coffee at a time. A good option for taking on holidays with you.
  • MANUAL / SEMI-AUTO COFFEE MACHINE – a semi-automatic coffee machine means you have to measure, grind beans, tamp the puck and froth your own milk. It’s a very ‘active’ way to make coffee.
  • FULL AUTOMATIC COFFEE MACHINE – a fully automatic coffee machine is the dream machine that does all the work for you at the press of a button! Many will say these are the best coffee machines because they barely require any skills!

Your coffee is only as good as your beans

It needs to be said that having one of the best coffee machines around is only part of the coffee-making experience. Even the best coffee machines can make not-so-great coffee if you don’t have fresh coffee beans. And where can you find the best coffee beans? From a local roaster of course (or even your local café)!
