Grabbing a good cup of coffee every morning from your local cafe can really add up.
Not to mention adding an extra fee to switch to milk alternatives or an additional shot of espresso to really get you through your day. Besides, since most of us are still working from home, it can be tedious to drag yourself out of the house for that one cup of coffee before heading home to work in your pyjamas again.
Rather than settling for 3-in-1 coffee sachets, maybe its time to opt for some coffee makers that brew fresh cups of joe right in the comforts of your own home. Here, we’ve curated some of the best ones to consider.

Espresso, Coffee, Cappuccino or Latte Macchiato? The Phillips EP5335 can do all that and more. This hefty machine allows users to create velvety smooth milk for lattes and cappuccinos thanks to its high-speed LatteGo System. Besides, the patented AquaClean water filter allows users to enjoy up to 5000 cups of joe before having to descale it. If you’re worried about cleaning, the LatteGo’s design comes with no additional tubes or hidden parts, and can be washed in as little as 15 seconds under the tap or in the dishwasher. The one here comes with a 24-month warranty as well.
If you’re one to go all out, then maybe you’d want to consider the De’Longhi Dedica: a powerful machine that’s built to help you recreate the entire cafe experience at home. From its sleek design (149 by 330 by 303 millimetres) to a smooth, rich espresso with every operation, it really doesn’t get any better than this. Besides coffee pods, users can also opt to use ground coffee if they want absolute control over their beans. Another plus point? The Dedica also comes with a steamer wand attached to the machine for a beautifully frothed latte.
If you’re one for a no-frills cup of coffee, consider the Braun KF712. This drip coffee maker serves about 12 cups, and is great when you have friends or family over. Compact and easy to use, the Braun KF712 is a great beginner coffee machine for those looking to get a reliable cuppa daily.
This modern-looking machine is an interesting piece on any sideboard. It resembles the classic espresso machine at the cafe, but rather than the whole fanfare of grinding your beans, you simply pop the Illy capsules in for a quick cup. Operating the Francis-Francis X7.1 is also pretty standard: simply fill it with water, turn it on and wait till the boiler hits the right temperature.
This sleek, 2.4-kilogram machine from Nespresso fits perfectly in just about any home’s interior design. It comes with a perforated removable drip tray and an internal bin for used pods, a handy design feature built for convenience. Apart from the full range of capsules from Nespresso at your disposal, enjoy a two-year machine warranty, as well as a welcome set of 14 capsules when you make your order here.
