Nespresso Inissia XN 1005 by KRUPS
Described as an ‘entry-level’ Nespresso machine, there’s much to like about the Inissia.
The Inissia is a small and compact machine that delivers a top quality cup of coffee that’s superior compared to a lot of larger and more expensive coffee makers.
Andrew James Premium Chrome Filter Coffee Maker
If, like us, you enjoy your coffee freshly ground and brewed, the Andrew James Premium Filter Coffee Maker is an excellent machine.
The grinder is integrated. All you have to do is add fresh coffee beans, water then sit back and let the machine do all the work. In a matter o minutes, you’ll have a beautiful, aromatic cup of coffee.
There’s also a 1.5 litre glass carafe which the coffee drips into. A hot plate keeps it warm for up to 30 minutes after brewing to ensure leftover coffee is not wasted, and you can go back for as many refills as you may need.
The ‘grind off’ function means you can use the percolator with ready ground or filter coffee rather than beans.
All in all this is a top quality coffee machine. The Andrew James Premium Filter Coffee Maker comes in a Chrome finish that’ll look great in your kitchen or workplace.
Bosch Tassimo Joy TAS4504GB
The Tassimo Joy from Bosch is an incredibly versatile coffee machine that not only makes a regular cup of black coffee but fancier coffees like macchiatos, cappuccinos and also teas and hot chocolates.
You can choose drinks from a wide range of brands including Costa, Kenco, Carte Noir, Cadbury, Oreo and a variety of Twinings teas.
A nifty feature of the Tassimo Joy is its use of ‘Smart Barcode Technology’. What this means is that every time you insert a capsule, the barcode on it is scanned to determine brewing time, temperature and e amount of water needed for each drink.
Enjoy an excellent cuppa at the touch of a button.
NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto Oblo Manual by KRUPS
While it may not operate automatically (you have to manually stop the water once your cup has filled) this is a minor annoyance.
Making a great cup of coffee couldn’t be easier: press the on-switch, wait for green light, move the lever for either cold or hot water.
Simple, easy to operate and most importantly, delivers a great cup of coffee. All for a very reasonable price tag.
Russell Hobbs 20680 Buckingham Coffee Maker
The Russell Hobbs 20680 Buckingham Coffee Maker produces great coffee in no time at all.
It has a permanent filter so no need to spend extra on filter papers. It’s easily cleaned by running it under the cold tap after emptying out the used contents in the bin.
The Buckingham Coffee Maker uses ‘showerhead’ technology during the filtering process. This showers all of the coffee grains in the permanent filter, making sure that all of the coffee is used and results in a richer coffee flavour.

With a maximum volume of 450ml, the machine can produce a generous sized single cup of coffee. Further features of the machine include a removable, adjustable height drip tray allowing for different sizes of mugs to be placed on the tray whilst keeping the work top free from splashes and drips.
