Ah, coffee. Bringer of energy, enthusiasm, productivity… And, yes, a shaky, tear-filled meltdown mid-afternoon if you have too much. But that’s all the more reason to make your morning cup of caffeinated nectar one to savour. With all the coffee makers and machines on offer, there’s sure to be something that fits your taste and budget. Here are some of our new favourites to encourage you to take the plunge(r).
If there were an award for the most attractive coffee machine of all time… Well, that would be silly. But this would probably win. The first electromagnetic induction coffee machine, rather than measuring the temperature at the surface of the boiler, this measures the temperature of the water itself, making it 80% more energy efficient. You can make filter coffee or espresso from beans, or use it with Keurig K-Cup or Lavazza Espresso Point FAP capsules. And it looks like a beautiful steampunk angel, made from aluminium, glass and wood. It’s being produced thanks to a hugely successful Kickstarter campaign, so you’ll have to wait until later in the year to have one, but you can order now.
It's $330 for UK delivery.
