Making The Best Coffee At Home

We have all been locked down for circa &^&(%$£ days now and it seems to be the small things that we are really starting to miss. One of those is being able to grab a coffee on the go. (Not so much the ‘go’ part, more so the coffee!)

With lockdown looking like it will be sticking around for a bit longer, it is time we started to consider other options/substitutes. If, like us, you need a good coffee to kickstart your day, it is probably about time you think about investing in a good coffee machine, one where you can bring Costa/Pret/Starbucks to the comfort of your home, without moving a muscle. Oh, and saving you money in the long run.

There are many coffee machines out there, so often it is tricky finding the right one for you. We have done the hard work for you, and tried and tested the Melitta AromaFresh Grind & Brew Therm Filter Coffee Machine.  This machine allows you to prepare a delicious filter coffee from freshly ground coffee beans. The integrated adjustable grinder guarantees the optimum grinding level which will leave you with an outstanding cup of coffee every time. Yay!

Best bits:

  • Like your coffee strong? There is an adjustable strength option, so you can flit from mild to strong depending on your mood.
  • The detachable bean container is easy to remove and clean, and it also comes with a cleaning brush; phew!
  • Not feeling coffee beans? The grinder can be switched off, and pre-ground coffee used instead!
  • The timer feature. Programme the time for your coffee machine to start brewing to be woken up in the morning by the smell of fresh coffee for example. The appliance switches on automatically at the time you set!

Coffee recipes to try at home from BBC Good Food:

Flat White

  1. Make around 35ml espresso using your coffee machine and pour into the base of your cup.
  2. Steam 100ml milk in a pan (How To here). Hold the jug so that the spout is about 3-4cm above the cup and pour the milk in steadily. As the volume within the cup increases, bring the jug as close to the surface of the drink as possible whilst aiming to pour into the centre. Once the milk jug is almost touching the surface of the coffee, tilt the jug to speed up the rate of pour. As you accelerate, the milk will hit the back of the cup and start naturally folding in on itself to create a pattern on the top.
