coffee machineHow was that last cup of coffee you drank? Did it taste watered down? Did it give a nice aroma after you brewed it? Throughout the pages of this site, I will be talking about different ways to brew coffee at home. How much does equipment factor into the brewing process?

From filters to bean grinders to coffee makers – all of these play an important role in brewing a great cup of coffee.

Over the years, I’ve tried different coffee machines and I’ve noticed how the quality of coffee varies depending on the kind of machine you use … which leads me to another important question:

Is it really necessary to buy an expensive coffee machine?

Coffee machines can range anywhere from $20 to well over $500. Have you wondered if it is really necessary to spend a tonne of money on a coffee machine? I will do a comparison of different coffee making products and see if it makes a difference in terms of the coffee produced.

Do you have any stories related to coffee equipment? I would love to hear your comments about any equipment used to make a great cup of coffee.
