There are four types of coffeemakers your can choose from, drip brewer, espresso machine, French press and percolator. If you prefer brewed coffee that is higher in caffeine, get a drip brewer and use it with lightly roasted coffee beans.
The lighter roasts contain more caffeine for that extra delightful buzz. If you really want better coffee flavor get an espresso machine and make your coffee with espresso beans. Espresso is a dark roast that holds so much flavor that it is a ingredient in lattes and desserts. For a richer and deeper coffee flavor, a French press is perfect and use it with French roast beans. French roast is the darkest roast, however it has lower caffeine content similar to espresso. Usually, the darker the roast, the higher caffeine content is traded in for the roasted coffee flavor. If you invest in a DeLonghi pump espresso machine you can take comfort in knowing that you own a machine that will not make your best beans taste like plastic.

When you own your own equipment, it decreases the cost of buying gourmet coffee. By owning a coffeemaker, you have the liberty to choose your organic ingredients and the quantity to use. Most importantly, you are able to save a lot of money by eliminating the need to purchase ready made coffee every day.
Owning your own equipment is a great excuse for you to experiment and try out different flavors to perk up your caffeine fix. No matter how often you drop by a coffee shop, it is unlikely for you to actually ask about the composition of your coffee drink. Some consumers feel uneasy asking about those kind of information and some simply do not care. By making your own drink, you are able to improve your kitchen skills and enhance your taste buds. When you are just starting out to learn the kitchen techniques, you work at your own pace. If you feel confident enough, you can entertain your guests to a cup of heart-warming coffee.
Joergen Bodum took over a small clarinet factory in Normandy in 1982, it was not because of the fine orchestra clarinets they were producing but because of a relatively unknown coffee maker called the Chambord which they produced as well. The reason the French press coffee maker has become one of the most popular coffeemakers in the world is pure and simple, taste. The materials (glass and stainless steel) are completely taste-free so nothing comes between your ground coffee beans. This is exactly the reason why coffee tasters use this method to determine the quality of coffee beans.
No paper filter means the coffee bean’s essential oils go directly to your cup, delivering the flavor that is-lost on paper filters. Simplicity works best and is the reason why the Chambord’s design has not changed a bit from its original drawing. Make taste, not waste.
In 2004 the Bodum Chambord coffee press received the American Culinary Institute’s award for best French press coffeemaker.
Another option to brew your coffee is a percolator.
Cuisinart PRC-12 Classic 12-Cup Stainless-Steel Percolator Cuisinart brings its coffee-making expertise to the 12-Cup model of their classic stainless steel percolator. Piping hot water percolates through the grounds, and pulses up into the glass knob on top to create the familiar “perk-perk” sound that coffee lovers wait to hear. A detachable cord and stay-cool bottom lets this percolator go anywhere to serve, and it only needs to be plugged in to keep it hot.
Percolators used to be a prevalent choice in the early years but it often results to a bitter and cloudy liquid with stray coffee grains. If you should buy a coffee making equipment, the top-three should be your priority to ensure a lovely cup of beverage every day.
Making your own cup of coffee that is better than the commercially sold latte that you paid too much for, will feel like a achievement. As you enjoy the best cup you ever had, figure out how much you are going to save over the next year. It will give you another reason to smile. Pay more than you think you should for a great coffee machine and imported coffees not for overpriced . Unless you just like the place and enjoy having a sit down and what’s a sit down if you don’t have coffee.
