For all the java lovers out there, Tuesday, September 29th is the best day of the year. A day filled with coffee and happiness. It’s National Coffee Day. And to celebrate this wonderful day, I decided to take a look at some of the coffee maker options, so I can be fully prepared to properly honor the day. From a single-serve to an espresso machine, there’s something for you no matter what kind of coffee drinker you are.
First up, starting at the basics, there’s the single-serve coffee maker. The perfect choice for an on-the-go lifestyle, these coffee makers can have a hot, fresh cup ready to drink in a minute. So if you’re someone who tends to sleep late or you just like the convenience of one-step brewing when you’re half asleep in the mornings, this is an incredible option.
For me personally, I don’t mind a few extra steps, and the classic drip coffee maker is my go-to. I have a tendency (more like a need) to drink more than one cup of coffee in the morning, so having it all made and ready to pour at once is nice. And the program option means that I get to wake up to the aroma of freshly brewed coffee filling the house.
If you’re thinking, “Well what if I want both.” Don’t worry. For those who like to go back and forth or if you have a household divided, Cuisinart makes a dual purposed machine just for you. With a 12-cup programmable carafe on one side and a single-serve on the other side, you get the best of both worlds.
Now, if you want to step it up and really get fancy, then an espresso machine might be the one for you. Bringing the coffee shop to your kitchen, espresso machines are now made with a slim, counter-friendly profile, and have easy-to-use buttons and options. Channel your inner barista and make yourself a latte or cappuccino right in your kitchen without ever leaving your jammies.
Speaking of espresso machines, our marketing team tested out the Capresso Ultima PRO to see just how easy it is to make a delicious cappuccino. Check out the results below:
Coffee makers have evolved over the years to meet our daily needs and make it easier than ever to get the coffee we want and need. So whether you need a quick of joe or you like to slow down and enjoy the brewing process, there’s something out there for you.
Enjoy your perfect cup on the best day of the year. Happy National Coffee Day!
