When you just can’t be asked to use a Barista Coffee Machine as it comes with a bit of cleaning and grinding, consider Bean-to-Cup Coffee Machines instead. They make great coffee because they grind the beans as you use them – no time, in other words, for all those flavoursome oils to evaporate, which so often happens with ground coffee. They are very easy to use and produce rich, smooth, tasty coffee.A bit of advice, if you’re using a bean-to-cup machine, consider buying the freshest beans, rather than picking up the first ones you see in the supermarket. I really like Pact, a service that sends top-quality beans roasted last week through the post.Sleek and intuitive, most machines have an inbuilt water filter, outstanding grinder and you can personalise your settings once you find your perfect preferences. This boasts a consistent grind and never overheats the beans. Look fro one that heats water quickly, self-cleans and enables you to personalise your brew’s strength and length. Some also have a manual milk frother for you cappuccino lovers out there.
