Bean-to-cup coffee devices

A bean-to-cup coffee device has an in-built grinder which grinds coffee beans on-demand. Grinding coffee beans on-demand produces the freshest coffee possible.  Furthermore, bean-to-cup coffee devices are simpler to use than other coffee device types, especially if you share something in common with a Luddite, bean-to-cup coffee devices are relatively easy to control in terms of technology. Some models also take ground coffee as well.  However, bean-to-cup coffee devices aren’t inexpensive despite their ease of use and tend to be more expensive than other coffee device types.

Price range is roughly £250 to well over £1000

Espresso coffee devices

Espresso coffee devices tend to be more affordable than bean-to-cup coffee devices and take a range of ground coffees. When compared to a pod and capsule coffee device, an espresso coffee device does not restrict usage to a particular coffee brand. Additionally, ground coffee is a less expensive than coffee pods and capsules. However, espresso coffee devices require a more hands-on approach and of course, there are more rigorous cleaning requirements than bean-to-coffee devices. Environmentalists can also sleep easy without knowing that they’ve contributed less waste than they would with a pod and capsule coffee device.

Price range is roughly between £100 to £200
