Looking for a coffee machine with grinder? Finding a good coffee machine can be a real grind (ha!).
The market is more saturated than the coffee at the gas station down the street and with a bevy of features on newer machines, it can be VERY difficult to know which bitter brewer brews best.
I get it:
You’ve narrowed it down to wanting a coffee machine with a grinder INCLUDED – the convenience is too good to pass up – but beyond that the options are overwhelming.
Let’s start with the basics
When you are looking for the perfect machine to suit your needs and requirements, it is important to consider a number of factors.
First, consider the type of machine you would like. Are you a drip coffee fan or an espresso aficionado?
Both types of machines are available with grinders so there is something for everyone.
How much coffee do you usually drink in the morning?
One should also think about the capacity of the coffee machine regarding both fresh beans and water. Make sure that the carafe is also thermally heated (if applicable) so that your freshly brewed coffee stays freshly brewed!
Some options also come with a water filter to remove any impurities or even a brew-strength control option if you are worried about those aspects of your coffee
With all of that to consider, it can give you a withdrawal headache just thinking about it! To make things a little easier, we have done the heavy lifting and sorted through the slop to find some of the top-quality coffee machines on the market.
