The first thing to think about is what coffee drinks do you wish to create with your coffee machine. Do you want only an espresso machine or do you want your coffee machine to make everything from Americanos to Cappuccinos.

Cappuccino/Latte —- Capsule, Automatic Bean-2-Cup Automatic machines are best for the milk based speciality coffee drinks. You can\’t beat them for ease of use and simplicity. Having said that, capsule machines will still do the job just not as easily

Espresso —- Capsule Machine Capsule Machines are ideal for espressos. They produce a beautiful thick crema espresso with tons of flavour. The flavour extraction from a high quality capsule machine is over better than most automatic machines and the preservation method used ensures that the body and aroma are not lost even if you store your capsule for a long time.

Cappuccino/Latte —- Capsule, Automatic Bean-2-Cup If you love your cappuccinos and lattes and other fancy milk drinks than a bean-to-cup machine is probably your best choice as they provide the simplest means of obtaining a milk-coffee drink. Stay away from automatic machines with plastic milk containers built into them as these turn sour very quickly.

Where are you based? Where you are located has a lot to do with which coffee machine to choose. If you are in Gauteng then getting capsules is a breeze as they are delivered free of charge to your home or office but if you are in the Bundus it might be a little trickier. That\’s not to say you can\’t get your capsules if you live in Timbuktu but you will have to factor in extra courier costs.

Ahhh, as always unfortunately we don\’t all have bottomless pockets so you will have to factor in your limit. As a general rule, coffee machines fall into the following price brackets

The most expensive is not always necessarily the best. For example a R20,000 coffee machine does exactly the same as a R12000 coffee machine but it has a touch screen. If a touch screen is not something which is not important to you then go ahead and save yourself a lot of money. Choose something with features which are important to you.

Now it\’s not to say \’that the best is always the most expensive it just most likely has one or two extra features. For example a R22,000 coffee machine does exactly the same as a R12000 coffee machine but it has a touch screen. If touch screen technology is not something which is not important to you then go ahead and save yourself R10,000.00. Call us or email us to ask us about different models features and functions.

As with everything Quality and Brand is hugely important. Rather go for a coffee machine specialist brand as opposed to choosing a general appliance manufacturer who makes washing machines, toasters AND coffee machines.

Finally ask the company that you wish to buy the coffee machine from about their service guarantee and call out charge if any. This is always important when buying a coffee machine which you have paid a lot of money for.
