What type of coffee machine is right for you?
If you’re after convenience, coffee pod machines use capsules and save on time and effort. A drawback lies in the limited recycling opportunities for caps, although brands like Nespresso do have programs in place. If environmentally friendly packaging options are a priority, look for recyclable and compostable pods.
For those looking to build their barista skills or simply enjoy the bean-to-brew process, an espresso machine will offer the opportunity to personalise your coffee and produce the perfect crema.
Coffee pod and espresso machines vary dramatically in price, so it’s best to weigh up which functions you may want in advance. Some, such as the Lavazza A Modo Mio Deséa coffee machine allow you to simply select your favourites, while models like the more sophisticated Sage by Heston The Barista Express offer a whole array of features.
To give you a head start, our full guide to the best coffee machines (including a review of the stylish KitchenAid Artisan Nespresso coffee maker) tells you everything you need to know. And once you’ve decided on the coffee machine for you, check back here.

Best coffee pod machine for busy households
For filter coffee without the faff, the Russell Hobbs Brew and Go produces a full mug at the touch of a button and was rated best coffee pod machine for busy households when tested by reviews expert Pete Wise. It uses ESE coffee pods and coffee bags that can be composted at home but there’s also the opportunity to brew using tea bags and ground coffee. Plus a sturdy take away cup is provided for hot drinks on-the-go. With an RRP of £32.99, you were only really saving £3 with this deal by Very but it’s a saving nonetheless.

Krups Citiz Red and Milk, Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals
- Save 10% at Debenhams, was £210 now £189 (Save £21 on the silver model – search debenhams.com for ‘Krups Citiz’, currently out of stock)
Best budget coffee pod machine
We were really impressed by this unassuming model. It’s easy to set up, slim (even with the milk jug attachment) and intuitive. It’s compatible with Nespresso pods (as are many pod machines on the market), and the coffee has an excellent crema. We were most impressed with the milk attachment – it works silently to heat milk to the perfect consistency for making cappuccinos, lattes or flat whites. RRP £210.
