What are the best coffee machines to make iced latte at home?
You have seen the pods or capsules on supermarket shelves. They are never discounted but promoted by the handsome George Clooney. As well as offering a consistent taste, they also come in lots of different flavours and if you have a machine that can also froth the milk, then a range of gourmet coffee drinks can be made easily at the touch of a button: latte, macchiato, americano, cappuccino, mocha, decaf and much more.
The airtight containers needed for the Pod or capsule machines, preserve the coffee for longer.

These machines usually have a built-in grinder, which fills the kitchen with the aroma when used. These machines usually come with a variety of settings so you can decide just how fine you want your beans ground.
Most bean-to-cup machines include a steam arm so you can froth milk when needed, as well.

Filter/Drip coffee machines
For people who aren’t too fussed about coffee and prefer a caffeine buzz for all those long working hours, a filter coffee machine is a fantastic option.
Filter coffee machines work by dripping water through ground beans into a warm jug. Some of these machines filter coffee automatically on a timer so everything is fixed to a schedule.
Coffee beans can be passionately ground using a separate grinding machine. When buying these pieces separately, it’s more feasible to replace them.
This programmable Mr Coffee machine lets you set a timer, meaning you can prepare your grounds the night before and wake up to freshly-brewed coffee, meaning more time in bed!
You don’t need to buy an expensive electric grinder to achieve a consistent coffee grind. Hand coffee grinders are more feasible and practical. Their mobility lets you take your coffee everywhere you go, and they don’t wake up the entire house when you’re home. Walking around the house while grinding your coffee is satisfying and multitasking at its best, well, that’s what I like to do anyway!
