This model boasts lots of bells and whistles, but they really do work together to make the precision of coffee brewing both easy to understand and easy to perfect.

Smeg bean-to-cup coffee machine deals

Best designed bean-to-cup coffee machine

Rated 5/5 stars by BBC Good Food experts during testing, this compact bean-to-cup is considered one of our Star Buy coffee machines. The rounded lines and statement 1950s style is undeniably Smeg, but surprisingly for its category, it doesn't have a footprint that dominates the kitchen countertop. In fact, it's one of the smallest bean-to-cup coffee machines on the market, combined with contemporary style and offering eight coffee functions and an efficient milk frother.

The Artisan edition of KitchenAid's espresso machine is a stylish kitchen addition. It has a low, slimline footprint but a hefty metal body that gives it good stability on its grippy base.

How to calculate your kilowatt hour usage

Coffee machines can vary in their energy efficiency and usage. As a general rule of thumb, the more functions and settings a coffee machine has, e.g. milk frothing and in-built grinding, the more power it's likely to use. It's easy to work out a coffee machine's kilowatt hour usage by using this simple sum.

Take the coffee machine's wattage (we've listed the wattage above) multiply it by the coffee machine's usage per day in hours, then divide the total by 1000. The result is your coffee machine's daily kilowatt hour usage (kWh). Coffee machines only run for a short amount of time, so you'll need to work out the time in decimals, for example half an hour is 0.5.
