In this ever-changing world where we can hardly keep pace with technology, it’s no wonder that many of us take the strides made in simple home appliances for granted. Those things we use every day – our stove, refrigerator, toaster, not to mention the existence of our dishwater and microwave – are rarely given a second thought. And for those coffee addicts among us who trudge into the kitchen every morning and hit the switch to start the brew (if it hasn’t already done it for us) hardly think about the advancement of the coffee making machine over the years.
It is said that the very first coffee making machine originated in Paris, France in the early 1800s. This particular model was the first in a long line of percolators – and replaced the method of boiling water separately. In the 1960s the coffee maker industry began marketing their new automatic drip model similar to what we use today.
Today’s coffee making machine comes in varieties that its predecessors would never have believed. Our preference for a particular coffee making machine is as unique as our preference for a particular coffee. As with anything else, we stick with what we like and we’ll often go to great lengths to find it.
Luckily we don’t have far to go. Between the large retail chains that make their homes in our neighborhoods, and the small home specialty stores, we’re likely to find our favorite coffee making machine around every turn. For those wanting to experiment or explore the newest models with all the bells and whistles, the Internet can be a great place to start the search.
Online resources give us access to comprehensive consumer reports that rate all manner of home appliances, the coffee making machine among them. You will find detailed reports on most all brands – from their popularity and price to their performance. This can be a tester ground of sorts when you’re looking to try out a new model.
When seeking the perfect coffee making machine for you, keep size considerations in mind. There are some models that – while including all the extras – come in a size not made for every kitchen counter. Take the time to examine each model before settling on just one.
The true coffee lover can not go a day without coffee. The home coffee making machine is as important to us as anything else in our homes. Explore all that’s out there in the world of coffee making and you’re sure to find just the coffee making machine to fit your needs.
