DeLonghi Magnifica Super-Automatic Espresso & Coffee Machine
Coffee connoisseurs around the globe swear by bean-to-cup coffee makers. These coffee makers actually freshly grind the coffee beans on the spot before each brew for a more intense, richer tasting coffee.

The DeLonghi Magnifica super-automatic espresso and coffee machine allows you to tinker and adjust everything in the brewing process from the strength of the coffee to the actual temperature and it also lets you use ready ground coffee which is ideal for those caffeine emergencies when you don’t have time to grind your own.
Tassimo by Bosch Single Serve Best Coffee Maker
If a single cup coffee maker is more your style when it comes to choosing the best coffee maker, then look no further than the Bosch Tassimo. This modern, sleek looking machine can make over 35 varieties of coffee and drinks, everything from simple black coffee to macchiatos, lattes, and even hot chocolates and tea.
Apart from the varied drinks the Bosch Tassimo can make the real stand-out feature is that this coffee maker is extremely low-maintenance thanks to its automatic self-cleaning and descaling feature. The only downside with this coffee machine is that you are limited to only use the coffee pods (or T-discs as Bosch prefers to call them) for this machine, but that being said there is a huge range of drinks available.
AeroPress Coffee and Espresso Maker
For those of you are a tight budget but don’t want to scrimp on flavor and strength then this cheap-and-cheerful coffee maker might be just what you are looking for. Believe it or not, but this gadget actually has a cult following among those in the know and it brews a strong cup of coffee (though admittedly without that coffee-shop style crema) in a matter of seconds.
Simply place a spoon of your favorite ground coffee inside of the tube, ad hot water, then slowly press down with the plunger. Wait for around 30 seconds (depending on how strong you like your coffee you can leave it for a longer period) and you’ll have a fresh cup of joe. Cleaning up is also super easy, and this AeroPress also comes with 350 micro-filters.
DeLonghi NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto by Krups
Small and easy to clean, this quirky coffee maker effortlessly brews a variety of hot and cold drinks such as lattes, gourmet coffees, cappuccinos, iced drinks and more. The built-in pressure pump also allows to you achieve that coffee shop crema on your espresso!
The DeLonghi NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto operates by utilizing coffee pods/capsules for each drink but unfortunately there isn’t a built-in steamer so if you enjoy a milky coffee you will have to use both a milk capsule and a coffee capsule which can bump up the cost of operating this coffee maker.
Capresso Thermal Coffee Maker
If the idea of messing around with coffee beans or capsules or is too much to cope with in the morning, you can’t go wrong with a filter drip coffee machine by Capresso.
The Capresso Thermal Coffee Maker is super easy to operate and use and can brew up to 10 cups of coffee in under 9 minutes. The Capresso also features a built-in timer function so that you can set it to greet you with a hot cup of coffee the instant you step out of bed.
Francis Francis X7.1 Iperespresso Machine
You probably won’t find another coffee maker in 2018 with such vintage looks as the Francis Francis X7.1. Don’t let those vintage looks fool you as this coffee maker is another “capsule chomper” that uses coffee pods/capsules for each brew. However, what makes this coffee maker stand out from the others is that it has a built-in steam wand so you can actually froth your own milk for cappuccinos and lattes.
Even with its vintage looks the Francis Francis X7.1 packs a lot of technology under its hood such as a one-touch brewing cycle, auto-stop feature for programmable volume, to name just a few. Designed by well-known and respected Italian architect Luca Trazzi, this funky, modern coffee machine adds a strong visual statement to any home kitchen, a must have for any coffee lover!
