Criteria for choosing a coffee machine


Always start by assessing the number of coffees consumed by the family per day. This allows you to select a coffee maker that has the right amount of water to provide the right number of coffees.

Ease of use

How will you use your coffee machine? Do you want a built-in coffee grinder that allows you to grind every coffee? Do you prefer to use coffee powder? Another solution is to use capsules or pods which are recyclable and allow easy cleaning and use.


Because we all have a budget to respect (uh… right?), we need to know a little about the price range. The machines with pods or capsules go from 55 to 800-900 euros, the espresso machines can go up to a few thousand depending on their brand, quality and features. So don’t panic, there is something for everyone!
