Should I buy an expensive bean to cup coffee machine?

If a quality cup coffee is a priority for you first thing in the morning, then you may have considered buying a bean to cup coffee machine. Unfortunately, these coffee machines, which some would consider a kitchen gadget, are normally quite expensive unless you can find one on special offer but are they worth the cost?

Instant coffee has come a long way in terms of quality, but many serious coffee drinkers think that ground coffee is far superior. The variety and strength of ground coffees that are available to buy are plentiful and vary greatly in price. High quality ground coffee can be bought from independent retailers some even offering a taste test before purchase. Most major supermarkets and coffee houses sell coffee beans, but a bean grinder will be needed in order to use the ground coffee in a cafetiere.

The advantage of a bean to cup coffee machine is its convenience. Coffee beans of your choice are put into the receptacle at the top of the machine and the water container is filled with cold water. The strength of the coffee can be selected as can the size of the cup being used. At the touch of a button a perfectly brewed cup of coffee is ready. So, if you are a coffee connoisseur then yes, this particular kitchen gadget is worth every penny.
