Coffee is one of the most traded commodity in the world second only to oil. And like oil, as the well-trodden metaphor goes, the world runs on it. From the first espresso before work till that final decaf before bed, it’s quite often the (coffee) grounds which make the grind possible.
Last year we spent about £730 million on coffee in the UK alone. We don’t know about you, but a decent coffee maker seems like a good investment to us… here are our favourite home coffee makers.
What to See
The Nespresso Maestria takes Nespresso ready made capsules, for perfectly blended and brewed coffee every time.

Great tasting coffee with minimum effort required, takes both ground coffee and E.S.E. pods in a jiffy. What more could you want?

The Kenwood KMix comes in loads of cool colours, doesn’t take up much space and would make a great addition to any kitchen.
The Dualit Coffee System has a fool-proof milk frother, extra large water tank for fewer refillings and a non-slip cup warmer just what you need for a fuss-free cup of joe to get you going in the morning.
£159.95 John Lewis
Russell Hobbs’ stylish and elegant pump espresso machine allows you to make authentic, aromatic Milanese cafe at home. It also has a milk frother so that you can opt for a cappuccino should the mood take you.

This rather shapely espresso maker from Divertimenti is not only cool and stylish, but it makes an amazingly rich espresso.
