At Oldrids & Downtown we appreciate that choosing the right coffee machine can be a daunting task, that is why we have answered a few frequently asked questions below to help you with your decision.

Which is the best coffee machine- Everyone has a different taste in coffee, so this is all down to preference. Bean to cup coffee machines are popular because they are versatile and able to whip up a cappuccino, latte or espresso; they are easy to use and most importantly can make great tasting coffee. You will be able to alter the taste of the coffee based on the coffee beans you use with your coffee machine. Another popular option is the Nespresso Machine, famous for its use of coffee capsules that are easy to use and provide great tasting coffee at the touch of a button. Filter coffee machines are another great option, allowing you to blend up to 12 cups of black coffee at once in a carafe that can be kept warm for your guests. 

How much is a coffee machine? - Coffee machines vary greatly in price depending on the features you are looking for. If you want to be able to grind your own coffee beans or create a multitude of coffees like a barista, then expect to pay more for your machine. Grinders and milk frothers are expensive accessories, and you will pay more to be able to use the full suite of coffees on the market. Filter machines are cheaper as they will only produce filtered black coffee, however cost more if they can use both coffee beans and ground coffee. If you are looking for top end technology, there are now 'Smart' coffee machines, which can be programmed to make coffee at certain times of day, or even some with their own accompanying app!
