It’s no secret that you don’t have to pay a small fortune to get a quality Coffee Machine but more often than not, you do get what you pay for. Though, there are numerous good Coffee Machines on the market for less than £100.00, however if you are looking to splash the cash, our experts delighted in testing some of the most expensive Coffee Machines on the market.
De’Longhi ECAM650.85.MS PrimaDonna Elite Experience Bean-to-Cup Coffee Machine
At £1,699.99, you’re certainly splashing the cash if you purchase this De’Longhi machine but it’s well worth the expense. The perfect blend of dynamic design, convenience and state-of-the-art technology helps to create the perfect brew every time. Whether its espresso or latte macchiato, each beverage can be personalised exactly to your liking by using the machine’s simple touch screen technology, or even the coffee app on your smartphone.
The machine’s unique LatteCrema System always ensures a dense and cream froth for cappuccino and a silky smooth texture for all of your favourite coffee-based milk drinks. And if you fancy a change from your usual brew, the PrimaDonna Elite Experience is the first Bean-to-Cup machine to create ice cold coffee. You can tailor your chilled beverage in terms of length, froth and strength.
It is also the first Coffee Machine from De’Longhi with online connectivity meaning you can select your favourite drink and create new recipes on your mobile. You are able to select up to six personal profiles meaning the machine is perfect for a small office environment or if you regularly have guests at your house. The machine can be used with either coffee beans or ground coffee and is able to prepare two cups with a single brewing cycle. Its cup warmer means that your brew will stay warm for up to thirty minutes, perfect if you happen to get distracted.
Jura J6 Bean to Cup Coffee Machine
The cutting edge innovations from Jura allow this machine to create both traditional and speciality brews at a professional quality via such a simple method. Its clear display and rotary dial ensure that the J6 is effortless for any user and you can even control the machine using your smartphone by downloading the Jura app.
And that’s not where the intelligence of the J6 ends. The water system detects the water filter automatically whilst a pre-installed maintenance programme makes for continued hygiene at the press of a button.
The machine is capable of making ristretto, espresso, espresso macchiato, latte macchiato, cappuccino and flat white. You may think that such a versatile machine would take up a boat load of room on your counter top but the machine’s hidden storage compartment allows you to stow away the milk spout and milk pipe whilst keeping them all in the same place. The J6 will set you back £1,695.00.
Krups EA9010 Espresseria Bean-to-Cup Coffee Machine
At £1,399.99, this Krups Coffee Machine is less pricey than the previous two machines but still rather expensive. However, for that price, you will have fully automated 17 one-touch hot drinks, convenience like never before!
The patented Thermoblock system makes for perfect temperature coffee with each and every use as well as individual settings for coffee strength, water quantity and temperature. Every brew produced from this machine will match your taste every time.
With a 1.7 litre removable water tank, plenty of brews are available at any one time so if you are hosting a dinner party or afternoon tea (or rather afternoon coffee), this machine can handle the job. And just when you think this machine couldn’t get any better, after making your perfect brew, the machine will then clean itself.
De’Longhi ECAM350.35.W Dinamica Bean-to-Cup Coffee Machine
De’Longhi makes our list yet again with another high-end Bean-to-Cup Coffee, however, at £494.99, it’s less than a third of the price of the other entry. Still, it offers an intuitive interface with a vast range of one touch beverages. There is also a My Menu feature which allows you to build a list of your favourite recipes.
Whether its an Italian Espresso or a tasty Latte Macchiato, the machine can serve up to six classic recipes. Enjoy your desired beverage with just the touch of button, or via the menu on that great LCD display. With 13 settings and an adjustable milk frother, you can manually prepare a creamy foam for your cappuccino or heat the milk for your white coffee.
In terms of cleaning, the brewing unit is completely removable and can be rinsed with water. The milk carafe is 100% dishwasher safe and also requires little maintenance.
Miele CM6310 Bean-to-Cup Coffee Machine
This is the first time a Miele machine has made our website and it’s more than deserving of its place here. The Bean-to-Cup Coffee Machine produces brilliant coffee at any one time for two different coffee specialities, this excellent for saving on time during that morning rush, or if you are using it as an office machine. What’s more, the taste is still second-to-none, all at the touch of a button.
Its Cappuccinatore function means you are able to prepare hot milk or milk froth easily in just seconds. And whilst that OneTouch for Two is perfect for when multiple brews for, the machine’s low noise levels also means it’s perfect for office use, causing as little distraction as possible.
For £1,249.00, this is certainly pricey but also very worth it. As well as the features mentioned, the model offers a heated cup surface, timer function, eco mode, child-safe lock and LED spotlight. Plus, a six-month free coffee subscription is included in the price.
