Brew a pot of coffee with an automatic coffee maker while getting ready for the day. Today's models offer everything from simple single-serving pod brewing to programmable versions that are pre-set to brew every day and every week. Choose the amount of cups to brew, drip style, thermal, glass or ceramic carafe and many other features that save you time and money,. Many coffee makers come with an automatic shut off, which allows you to concentrate on other tasks. Some coffee makers make a single serving for those on the move.
Programmable coffee makers allow you to set up the brew before the guests arrive so that you are able to relax and enjoy the evening, knowing the café noir will be ready on time. Try being a barista using your espresso and cappuccino maker. Use a machine that has an instant option to maintain the same temperature for each espresso, avoiding making your guests wait for the reheat. Some appliances come with a foaming spigot that rotates 180 degrees, giving you plenty of room for your milk container. Impress your guests by having a cappuccino maker with a cup tray that keeps them warm, like the ones found in cafes. For big parties, consider a stainless steel 30 cup coffee urn with a tap.
Prepare your coffee fresh with an automatic coffee maker that comes with a grinder and enjoy the freshest possible cup of joe in the morning. Combined with other small kitchen appliances, like a mini electric milk frother for foamed milk, you can make coffee shop-quality beverages at home. Consider espresso and cappuccino makers with dual pumps and heating systems that can produce frothed milk, as well as the coffee, for barista-level beverages you can make with the touch of a button. Choose a programmable model that grinds the beans and brews a pot of coffee from them each day, based on how you set the schedule. Other makers have the capability to produce iced coffee. Many models come with replaceable water filters to maintain the clear taste of your brew. There are any number of coffee filters available to match a specific coffee maker model.
Choose automatic coffee makers that offer hot water as part of their brewing process or as a stand-alone tap. Along with coffee, many single serve machines accept tea and cocoa pods. Use the hot water and a French press and allow the coffee to steep for more flavor. The press also eliminates the paper filter, leaving the taste and oils intact. Some coffee makers with mugs are diverse enough to let you heat up water for a separate tea or a cup of hot chocolate along with coffee. Like many home appliances, coffee makers deliver a wide variety of options that will keep everyone comfortable and happy.
