Having a coffee machine in your kitchen will always be beneficial. Why is that you may ask? There are many reasons why it a good idea to have a coffee machine in your kitchen, one of the principal reasons is that you will always have a variety of different coffees available for your brew. Whether you prefer a cappuccino or latte – you’ll be sure to find the drink you want regardless of the coffee machine you have at home.

Let’s face it, it’s only your coffee machine that can produce the perfect brew, one cup at a time every single time, and can repeatedly make a brew exactly how you want it over and over again. You can test this out to easily by comparing a cup of coffee freshly brewed from the kettle to one that has been brewed from a machine. Each time you do this test, the coffee brewed by the machine will be better both aromatically and by taste that that from a kettle.

We all live busy lives from one degree to another and having a coffee machine on hand will mean it being one of the best friends you’ll ever have. To be able to just wander across to your kitchen, press a single button and have the best coffee you’ve ever tasted delivered to you in seconds can be, for many people, a lifeline.

I personally enjoy the coffee that’s delivered by Bosch Tassimo machines. There’s just something about what the Tassimo pods deliver that just hit the spot every single time for me. And with the easy to use Tassimo machines that are available on the market – not to mention the wide choice and variety of Tassimo discs that are available, I get the coffee I want, when I want it. I once got given a Tassimo as a gift and I haven’t looked back since.

In fairness, there are a number of good solid coffee machines on the market and I don’t want to just focus on the one – whether it’s what comes from Gaggia, DeLonghi or Krups – you’ll be sure to be installing something akin to your best buddy in the kitchen no matter the model you make.

You do need to be mindful of the coffee you get for your machine, which might determine what model you go for. I mentioned early about the Bosch Tassimo and the Tassimo pods. Tassimo refers to the make of the coffee and they do a line of Costa coffees that replicate what you get from the coffee shop on the high street. However, other make of coffee machine might not work with the Tassimo pods that are available – for instance, the Gaggia Classic use Easy Serve Espresso (ESE) pods which are a general, all purpose line of coffee that many other makes use – while the Krups Melody coffee machine uses a line of coffee from Dolce Gusto.

It might not be that important to you, but if there is a brand of coffee you absolutely love, then you need to be sure you get a coffee machine that will give you that coffee. But hey! Coffee is coffee isn’t it?

As mentioned earlier – coffee for some people can be something of a lifeline to the real world, or something that wakes you up first thing in the morning and so having a coffee machine at hand that will give you your caffeine hit when you need it can be a real God send.

And they are so easy to use, also. Once you have it switched on and full of water – you simply insert a coffee pod into the machine (some let you load multiple discs), press one button and let the coffee machine go to work. In my experience, with my Bosch Tassimo – I get my coffee in 20 seconds, fresh, delicious and exactly how I want it to be, time after time. My best friend? You bet!
