When making your own coffee at home you will need the perfect coffee machine. This machine not only needs to be able to brew a delicious cup of java but must also suit your preferences.
The number of options in the market, all with different features and advantages, make choosing one a headache. Today, we’ll help you with that by introducing the 8 best coffee machines in Singapore:
1. Breville Bambino Plus – Best Overall Coffee Machine
Out of all the coffee machines we researched, the Breville Bambino Plus takes the crown as the finest overall coffee machine. With its quick heat-up time you can quickly brew a customised, smooth cup of espresso.
A couple of downsides to this machine: you can only brew one cup at a time and you’ll need to carefully clean it after every use. It is also expensive, being sold at nearly $700.
2. Cuisinart Cold Brew Maker – Best For Cold Brewing
If you love cold brews like most of us, we highly recommend the Cuisinart Cold Brew Maker that’s priced at $220. The brewing time might be a bit slow, but you can brew up to 7 cups at a time and use the strength selector to choose how strong you want your cold brew to be. It also has a removable tank that makes cleaning so much easier.
3. Bodum Chambord French Press – Easiest To Use
Speaking of easy, we have one of the simplest and most convenient machines to use on this list: the Bodum Chambord French Press. Those who are fans of the French Press should definitely go for this $98 machine, as its aesthetic design and user-friendliness would present great value for your money.
4. Nespresso Vertuo Plus – Best For Brewing Large Quantities of Espresso
Looking to brew a cup of joe for the entire family? Then the Nespresso Vertuo Plus, with a market price of $220, is just for you! With its massive 1.8 litre tank and easy interface, you can swiftly brew a large batch of espresso-based coffee in no time. Unfortunately for milk lovers, this machine does not come with a milk frother.
5. KitchenAid Classic Drip Coffee Maker 5KCM1208 – Best Value
Coffee machines can get very pricey, and naturally you would want to get the best value for your money. The KitchenAid 5KCM1208 model perfectly suits this mould as it is a high-end machine with a middle-of-the-pack price tag (around $200).
Its retro design is a nice change from the futuristic look of most modern coffee makers, and its quietness when brewing is certainly delightful. However, its brewing process is really slow so only buy it if you have the time and patience to wait for your coffee.
6. Breville The Oracle Touch – Best for Customising Hot Drinks
Do you like to customise your coffee? Breville’s The Oracle Touch is perfect for the job! Coffee aficionados love this machine as it has a ton of settings and features not seen in most coffee machines. With the Oracle Touch, creating custom coffees is really easy to do.
The biggest drawback to this machine is its eye-watering price. You will need to fork up nearly $4800 plus shipping! The Oracle Touch will also take up a huge chunk of space in your kitchen as it’s fairly big and “clunky”.
7. Aeropress Go – Best Portable Coffee Machine
Those who are always on the go will love this next entry. Now, you can brew up a cup of velvety espresso, americano, or cold brew anytime and anywhere with this portable coffee machine. It even comes with a lid and mug, making it very amazing to take on trips.
The Aeropress Go is also very affordable at just $69.
8. Smeg Drip Filter Coffee Machine – Best Drip Coffee Machine
Perfect for fans of ground coffee, our last entry is the best drip coffee machine in the market. The Smeg Drip Filter Machine is sold at around $320 and comes with a convenient timer that allows you to brew coffee for the perfect amount of time.
