Which are the best coffee machines?
There really is nothing better than waking up to a barista-quality cup of coffee just the way you like it – perfect flavour, right temperature, and in your kitchen. JB has a range of big brand coffee machines that can make that happen every morning, and they’re all great value. There are three main kinds of coffee machines online and instore:
- Automatic coffee machines. Automatic coffee machines do it all for you at the push of a button. They will preset your favourite blend and froth your milk, and some even come with coffee grinders.
- Manual coffee machines. Manual coffee machines are like the pro coffee machines in cafes, but smaller. Pack the coffee just the way you like it.
- Capsule coffee machines. Capsule coffee machines are also called pod coffee machines. Pick your perfect capsule blend, pop it in, and press go. As simple as that.
How do coffee machines work?
Like pretty much all the small appliances at JB, coffee machines use the latest technology to make something easier, and better. Any coffee lover will tell you how much better coffee from espresso machines is. Coffee machines work a few different ways, depending on which type you buy, but the best coffee machines for home all work the same way:
- Add water. Fill the convenient water tank from your regular or filtered tap.
- Add coffee. Pod for capsule coffee machines, coffee for manual coffee machines. For fully automatic coffee machines you can just press the button for your favourite blend.
- Add milk. Some coffee machines come with internal milk frothers, some with external, and some without. Either way, it’s usually just a single button. You can grab a frother from our range of coffee accessories.

What is a descaler for coffee machines?
All coffee machines need descaling from time to time. Water contains minerals, and over time those minerals can build up on important parts of coffee machines. Descaling is the act of getting rid of that build-up. It’s a simple process that usually just involves buying some descaler and following the instructions that come with your coffee machine.
What coffee machine should I buy?
