The Best Rated Coffee Machines in 2021

Adding a reliable coffee machine to your home or office is generally always a good idea, but doing so during the cold winter months in South Africa might seem like an absolute necessity. The trouble is, that there are so many different coffee machines to choose from on the market. It can be overwhelming to know where to start. For this reason, the Aquaspresso team has been hard at work to uncover the best rated coffee machines in 2021. These all have great reviews online, and have been tried and tested to ensure that you’ll get a great coffee drinking experience with every cup. 

De’Longhi’s Dinamica Coffee Machine

This bean-to-cup coffee machine from De’Longhi ticks all the boxes and more when it comes to providing quick and delicious hot drinks at the touch of a button. The Dinamica comes in a very convenient size, and proudly boasts a fresh cup of espresso in under 60 seconds. If you’re looking to test different brews and are after a range of different features, this coffee machine might not be for you. It is, however, perfect for anybody that enjoys a consistent cup of coffee in the morning, without having to worry too much about putting in too much effort to get there. For this reason, some coffee aficionado’s and reviewers refer to it as a “hands off” machine. 

The Smeg Drip Filter Coffee Machine

Smeg is renowned for providing some of the best quality home appliances to the world. Their coffee machine range has expanded quite a bit in recent years, including the recent addition of a very popular drip filter coffee machine that is making its way into homes across the world. This machine makes multiple cups worth of coffee in one go and is renowned for keeping them warm for three quarters of an hour. We love the timer that can be set to start brewing a few minutes before your morning alarm. The machine is quiet, it looks modern and polished (albeit being slightly on the bulky side), and will be a great addition to any home or office space.

NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto Piccolo XS Coffee Maker

Nescafé is no stranger to “best of” lists when it comes to great coffee machines, and the Dolce Gusto Piccolo XS has made this one because it is one of the easiest models to operate on the market today. Because it doesn’t come with too many bells and whistles, it is also relatively inexpensive in comparison to other models in the same range. Although it doesn’t give you too much variety to choose from, if you’re looking for something streamlined that can be used for hot and iced coffee, this is a great option to keep in mind.

The Jura WE8 Automatic Coffee Machine

The Jura WE8 has “been around the block” so to speak, having found its way into homes and offices across the country for some time now. We love this automatic coffee machine because of the fact that it can cater to small and larger groups of coffee drinkers at the same time. The WE8 has a very large water tank and grounds container, meaning you won’t have to maintain it as often as some of the others on the list. It’s worth mentioning its exquisite design as well, which compliments the fact that it can make two hot drinks at the same time.
