Italian coffee maker :
Using an Italian coffee maker properly allows you to obtain quality coffee. Its use is very simple. Separated into two distinct parts, the Italian coffee maker consists of a filter in which we place the ground coffee, and a lower part where we add water. When the lower part heats up, the water with the pressure and the heat will rise, mixing with the ground coffee. Once this procedure is complete, your coffee is ready to be served.
You will find two types of Italian coffee makers, aluminum and stainless steel. Those in stainless steel can be used on induction hobs, unlike those in aluminum. They are available in all sizes : for one to ten cups.
Pod machines :
Capsule machines are the most common on the market. They are easy to use and make great coffee.
Some of these machines offer the possibility of making other hot drinks such as tea or even milk chocolate.

This type of machine cannot make coffee in large quantities. Pod machines are ideal for espresso consumers who want a small cup of coffee in the morning or after a meal. The pods remain in terms of price, more expensive than ground or bean coffee.
Espresso machines combined coffee maker :
A combined coffee maker espresso machine is a machine that combines classic espresso machine and filter coffee maker. This machine is therefore suitable for people who want to brew a large amount of coffee in the morning for the whole family and enjoy an espresso later in the day.
