One of the most amazing things the Internet has brought us (other than dancing cats on Youtube) is the vast wealth of information, in fact more than we could ever read, at our fingertips.
For us coffee geeks, that means that we can choose more wisely than ever when we’re looking for a home coffee maker that is going to be responsible for delivering our caffeine hit over the coming months and years.
For example, beantocupcoffeemachines.net recommend the Melitta Caffeo Bistro as their top machine of choice, which is available to buy at an incredible discount at Amazon. If it’s not immediately obvious, you may never have even considered a Melitta model without doing some research, as you often have a limited selection when you wander into Currys or Argos.
In fact, it’s quite depressing if you watch outside one of those high street stores at the weekend, as you’ll see a lot of budget machines being carried out. What makes that so bad is you get much better discounts if you know where to look on the web. In fact, just before Christmas, the Caffeo Bistro was discounted further by around £200, making it about 30% cheaper than it is at the time of writing. That means that you could have bought a top end machine on Amazon for the same price as the mid range model you’d have picked up on the high street. That’s the problem that the big name retailers have compared to the online only rivals, who don’t have extortionate rent bills for their prime spots in the town and city centres and out of town malls.
Hopefully that’s a compelling argument for investing a little time into research before you invest a little more cash into the new addition on the side in your kitchen.
Oh, and before we sign off; here’s those dancing cats from YouTube:
