What are the differences between coffee machines?

To make your purchase decision easier, we would first like to briefly introduce you to the most important machine types. This will help you make the right decision for you:

  • The filter coffee machine is the classic office machine in which a disposable filter and coffee powder are inserted at the top and black coffee usually runs into a pot at the bottom.

  • With the espresso machine or portafilter machine, the coffee powder is screwed onto the machine with a sieve. Hot water is then pressed through the sieve and the coffee powder

  • With capsule machines, plastic capsules with different flavours are inserted into the machine. They usually work automatically. The best-known brand here is Nespresso. For all those for whom sustainability is important: there are also reusable capsules that can be used several times.
