Ah coffee, where would the world be without you? A lot less would get done that’s for sure! Coffee culture is a rich and fascinating avenue to explore, from the cultivation of raw beans, to international coffee trade, coffee has captivated the human race for hundreds of years. Whilst you won’t have a hard time finding someone to prepare you a cup of this miraculous substance, more and more people are discovering the joy of preparing coffee at home. Taking a look at the Best Coffee Machines from Domayne, it’s easy to see why people are welcoming a coffee machine into their lives. Convenient and powerful, units like this Sunbeam Coffee Machine can give you café quality coffee at the touch of a button. Coffee machines allow you to experiment and find the perfect setting to suite your tastes, but they can do so much more!
Units like the Sunbeam feature a bur grinder with many grind settings, enabling you to really customise the way your blend is prepared. Other smart features like a shot temperature monitor assist you in creating the perfect cup of coffee every time. By experimenting with grind level and temperature you can unlock the potential of your beans and extract the subtleties in flavour and aroma. Certain blends are very temperamental and require very specific temperatures ranges and will not release flavours and smells correctly unless these specific needs are met.
Coffee machines are marvels of technology, with a tiny footprint most machines will fit on your kitchen bench and produce coffee that would make a barista nod in approval. Despite all this genius, coffee machines will have a hard time making a cup of tea. This is because near boiling water is passed over tightly compacted ground coffee, producing that perfect oily shot. Tea needs to sit in boiling water to infuse, such a quick flow of water from a coffee machine is not adequate. A coffee pot however is cheap and perfect for preparing tea. If you are feeling brave a coffee pot can double as a multi-purpose food cooker. Hot dogs, steamed vegetables and ramen noodles are in all within the humble coffee makers abilities.

Bring me a drink
So, your coffee machine is amazing, but it does have some limitations. Making a nice cup of tea being one of them. But it’s not a big deal, after all, this is a coffee machine not a tea machine. There are a huge variety of other drinks your machine can make, as long as they start with a base of espresso! Café favourites are as easy as finding the additional ingredients. A mocha can be achieved with some chocolate powder and the right beans, an affogato is as simple as adding a fresh shot to your favourite ice-cream. Many machines feature intelligent frothing wands, making frothing milk to a required consistency easy as pie. Check out your local café for inspiration as the variety of coffee-based drinks is growing by the day. A crushed ice can take your home beverage menu to the next level, with frappes and other sugary goodies offering a tasty alternative to regular old cup of joe.
