How to get that fresh coffee smell
Our Nespresso machine is pretty amazing, and you do get a gentle coffee aroma, but we don’t get that smack of a smell from grinding the coffee beans ourselves.
If you’re using a filter or a manual espresso machine you need to have freshly ground beans. You can get a similar ‘hit’ of coffee bean aroma when you open a vacuumed bag of coffee. ( The first opening is the best ! )
See which machine we couldn’t let go of, so had to leave behind in the UK… for now.
And, after many months of research see which other coffee machines we have had, loved and sold. You’ll find them among some of the best machines we recommend.
Our best buy recommendation
Our current favourite is the Sage ( Or Breville if you are in America ) Barista Touch
semi-automatic bean to cup espresso making machine. Perfect if you want to look like a Barista, but also can get your coffee quickly, and the most difficult parts are taken care of by this very clever coffee machine. It’s also very well priced.
