Melburnians and other people love their coffee and are very particular about it. If you were to buy your coffee each day it would be about $28 per week or $1456 per year. That’s a lot of money and paper cups used if it is a takeaway one.
So most people prefer to buy a coffee machine and their capsules which can save them a lot of money over time.
How much am I willing to spend? Am I willing to spend a lot or a little bit. Most Nespresso machines cost between $500-$1000. Where as a machine in Aldi costs about $90-$150. And don’t forget the capsules which cost extra
A coffee machine can last for years if you use it properly. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for cleaning. Do clean it after every use.
Most machines have a warranty period of one to three years. If there is a part that is not working properly and you did everything that you were supposed to, then you can take it to the manufacturer or retail store and get it fixed at no extra cost.
Try out the coffees before you buy.
This is a good idea to see how your prospective machine works and how to use it. Does it make good coffees or do they make crappy ones? A good cup of coffee is what matters to most people. Do you have to press many buttons to make the coffees. Does it make a lot of noise?
Most places will have test coffee machines and sales reps and you can see how they work. You can also ask them questions about their machines.
Do shop around for the best one. What works for one person might not work for others.
