Coffee makers have certainly arrived at a long way. From cowboys brewing coffee kettles over the coals to today's sleek automatic brewers. But the question is how and where exactly do you find your ideal coffee maker? Here are my 3 tips for selecting your ideal espresso and non-espresso coffee makers.

Selecting An Espresso Or Non-Espresso Coffee Maker

Espresso coffee makers are much more sophisticated. Henceforth their prices are much higher than other coffee makers. They range from a few hundred to even thousands of dollars depending on their capabilities to produce quantities and types of coffee. The more they produce, the higher is their perceived value.

Die-hard coffee aficionados usually select espresso coffee maker. Especially super automated models that perform everything such as grinding the coffee to pouring it into the cup.

Most average coffee drinkers preferring to have a simple pot of normal coffee available at all times. They are not interested in cappucinos, mochas, lattes or other versions of coffee. They just want pure coffee.

For them, non-espresso coffee makers are better suited to their taste especially when they are busy, on the go and unable to afford time to make coffee by themselves.

The same go for large quantity coffee drinkers. Large percolator type coffee urns can be in preparing more than 100 cups of coffee at one time.

In terms of pricing, non-espresso coffee makers are cheaper and much more affordable.

Selecting A Non-Espresso Coffee Maker

These coffee makers are easily available via drip, French press and combination models. Drip coffee makers usually produce 6 to 10 cups of coffee at a time. For those who need lesser quantity, it is more advisable to get a model making up to 4 cups at a time. They are cheaper and easier to use.

There are pod coffee makers available using single serving pods to brew coffee. Though pod coffee makers are cheaper, the coffee itself costs more than 10 to 20 standard cans of pre-ground coffee.

French press coffee makers are great for multiple cups of coffee at a time. Combination coffee mix featuring both espresso and non-espresso coffee makers in one machine are also available. More often than not, those 2-in-1 machines give coffee drinkers the best of both worlds.

Selecting An Espresso Coffee Maker

There are 3 main types of espresso coffee makers.

As in semi-automatic, fully automatic and super automatic models. Each of those possesses the ability to produce make fewer cups at a time. Howeer they may require more time and attention than a standard drip coffee maker.

The more automated espresso coffee makers are, the more features it will offer. Some take care of everything from grinding the coffee beans, filling the cup with coffee to ejecting the used coffee grounds.

Also the more benefits espresso coffee makers have, the more costly they are. Remember when I mentioned earlier the more capabilities they have, the higher is their perceived value by stores? Well, these coffee makers cost anywhere from hundreds to even thousands of dollars.

Your first decision in selecting your ideal coffee maker be it espresso or non-espresso is whether they have and can deliver what you need consistently. Coffee preferences, budget and quantity of coffee to be made are also other factors that could affect your decision-making process.

Other than just coffee makers, you might want to consider automatic espresso machines.
