What coffee makers are there, and how did we choose the best ones?

Drip coffee maker. A simple and inexpensive coffee maker with a flask. The principle of operation is that hot water flows drop by drop into the filter, passes through the ground grains, taking away their taste and aroma, and enters the flask.

Geyser coffee maker. The principle of operation of a geyser coffee maker is the opposite of a drip one: water rises from the bottom up in the form of a geyser, pouring coffee. Then it also gets into a special flask. As a rule, the volume of a geyser coffee maker is small, and the price is also high.

Carob coffee maker. In this coffee maker, coffee is compressed under pressure (usually 10-15 bar).

Coffee makers can be automatic or semi-automatic. Automatic ones will do everything from grinding grains to filling a cup with water for you, while semi-automatic ones require any additional actions on your part.

Our selection was based on customer reviews and characteristics of coffee makers. The rating includes both models for offices and for home use, including those for a small family.

Compact and fairly simple coffee maker, produces aromatic coffee every morning. When using grain coffee, the drink is less strong than when pouring ground coffee, because it fits more. The coffee pot is enough for 2 medium cups of 200 ml.

Espresso turns out cool, flavorful. Cappuccino or other milk-containing types of coffee are available if desired and with certain skills. I managed to get used to the cappuccino machine, though not immediately. The pan vibrates slightly during cooking – not critical.

Very good coffee maker. After a little “stuffed my hand” and figured out the dosage and proper tempering of ground coffee, the result exceeded all expectations. I like the taste of espresso more than from coffee machines in bars.
Garlyn L70
Another company decided to please the domestic consumer with a Chinese-made OEM coffee maker. Well, the Garlyn brand is quite young, so it seems that it is not yet easy to order something with questionable quality under its logo. Well, then time will tell.The design of the model is pleasant-a combination of plastic and metal. In terms of characteristics, everything looks quite good: power-1450 W, boiler heating system (hot coffee at the outlet), pump pressure-optimal 15 bar, autocapuchinator. The water tank is transparent removable 1.4 l.

liked it in my work. I love cappuccino for a long time and loyally, but I didn’t manage to make friends with panarello on an old coffee maker. She moved to her parents, and we have this model at home. Here’s the order now. From now on, my favorite drink is on the morning menu, and the latte has already been tasted.
