Coffee is a drink that is in big demand around the globe. A true coffee lover tries many coffees to find his or her favorite. He tries many methods of grinding the coffee, mixing the coffee, and even drinking the coffee. People take their coffee very personally. We each have our preferences. Whether we like our coffee dripped, pressed, or brewed makes a difference. Where our coffee comes from, makes a difference. What we add to our coffee and whether we drink our coffee hot or cold, strong, or mellow makes a difference.
You may live alone or with a partner and only need 1 or 2 cups of coffee at a time. You may have a busy family where many members drink coffee who are always on the go and you brew a large pot every morning. All of these things influence your preference for coffee makers. You may be someone who feels likes to indulge in his love for coffee and is seeking for the best machines to make coffee. But before you close your mind to challenge, please read on.
We are going to share our favorite of coffee makers. These are not in any particular order. We believe your choice of coffee and preparation is very personal. We just want you to be open to selections. Before you buy your coffee maker, visit the various coffee cafes and try the coffee they make in various ways.
But First, Coffee
To put it simply, there are two kinds of coffee. Coffee that is grown in high altitudes and coffee that is grown in low altitude. The best flavors come from beans harvest high in the mountains. Many people believe that Blue Mountain Coffee is the best. Of course, it is a matter of taste. The low-grown coffee bean is the type that is sold to instant coffee makers. They pre-grind their coffee and sell it in supermarkets. Once you have tasted a good cup of coffee, you will never drink instant coffee again!
The moment coffee is ground, the rich flavors are released. But, the longer the coffee sits, the more flavor escapes. Therefore, a true coffee lover will buy their coffee at a coffee shop and will only buy enough for 2-3 days.
The exception to this is to own your own coffee grinder. You can grind just what you need. Your coffee beans will last a lot longer.
We bought coffee beans of all flavors and tried many coffee makers. This is how we say with confidence, we will show you the best machine-made cup of coffee. Before we continue, it is only fair to warn you that we are of the opinion that a drip-style maker is the best for a single cup coffee and more.
