We love coffee. From waking in the morning, to the last hot drink of the night, coffee is our first choice whenever the kettle boils. While some people refrain from stimulants too close to bed time, it’s not a problem we’ve ever noticed in getting off to sleep.
Many people, just like us, have also discovered that you can go far further that instant coffee at home, with everything from the 80s style hugely popular percolator to vending machines built for home use (although they’re admittedly more intended for novelty value than for coffee nerds like me).
We are particularly big fans of grinding our coffee beans at home, whether that’s in an all singing, all dancing bean to cup machine, or to put into a lesser coffee maker. It still gives a much fuller and fresher flavour than the shop bought variety that comes pre ground in foil, although that in turn wins hands down every time over the instant granules.
So, use and abuse our knowledge and information here at Heartless Adrenaline, and get a heart pumping hit of caffeine goodness to the brain, to help you pick your perfect percolator, greatest grinder or best brewer for your kitchen!
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:
