So, without wasting any more time, let’s begin!
Decide WHAT you want to make:
Many espresso machines make all types of coffees, while others only specialize on a single type. Due to that, the earlier are more expensive than the latter. So, deciding beforehand about what type of coffee you will make is the best way to avoid long thinking times in front of the seller. Below are some types of coffees for people who are new. You can decide which one you will drink after reading about them:
Espresso: It is the most common type of coffee and is described as pure natural coffee straight out of the machine. No froth and no steam.
Macchiato: Just a normal espresso shot, but with a little bit of steam and some foam to increase the flavor.
Cappuccino: The same as a macchiato, but with extra milk. It is the second most common type of coffee after espressos.
Latte: Similar to cappuccino, but with more milk and a little bit of foam.
Mocha: Like a cappuccino, but with chocolate. ( This one is my favorite~! )
Decide HOW you want to make it:
This is the second most important factor after deciding the primary type of coffee. Different coffee machines and espresso makers differ from each other because of their style of brewing, frothing and blah blah. Below are the types of machines you will find in the market and how they are different from each other:
Manual: They require you to perform everything by yourself, including the grinding, the brewing etc. But it allows you to control every aspect of your coffee.
Semi Automatic: Semi automatic machines have a pump, which helps you in grinding and other stuff, but you still have to work on it while the machine provides you ease in the work.
Fully Automatic: They do all the work, but you have to add water and beans in their tanks and don’t complain about the quality since you aren’t doing anything.
Super Automatic: This is a fully advanced version of the above machine, and controls every aspect, from water amount to bean size, amongst many other things.
Decide how much you WANT TO SPEND:
The last thing is the budget, as a higher budget means a higher quality machine for your coffee needs. An average budget for getting a coffee machine is near $500 to $600, though you can increase or decrease it according to your limit and monthly pay. Just remember, the types of machine listed above are in order of the budget, so you can guess yourself which one will fit yours.
