Best Thermal Travel Mug For Tea & Coffee 2019 – UK Reviews

If you wake up late and find yourself in a rush, you likely won’t be able to sit around, wait for your coffee to cool down, and drink it in a single gulp. For those looking to indulge in a cup of coffee every morning, a travel coffee mug may end up being a worthwhile investment.

Today, I’ll be presenting a buying guide for the best travel coffee mug so that everyone can find the right one for their needs. I’ve gone over three different options, all of which excel in different areas; this will help ensure that every reader will find at least one mug that’s to their liking.

Best Burr Coffee Bean Grinder 2019 – UK Reviews

Even with a great coffee maker and premium coffee beans, without the right grinder, you’re missing a lot of opportunities to experience the best flavour with each sip.  Surprisingly, getting the right coffee grinder can be just as difficult as finding the right coffee beans or maker.

It takes research to find what type of coffee grinder works best. And while there are a growing popularity and praise for blade grinders, I’m going to suggest that burr grinders are the only option if you want to have a more “high-end” (finer) result after grinding, which leads to better-tasting coffee.

When it comes to brewing coffee at home, you want to have the best grinder that’s available for your price range. You could opt to choose from any number of cheap modern electric coffee grinders, but you won’t have as much control as you would with a burr coffee grinder.

best nespresso coffee machine

Best Nespresso Coffee Machine 2019 – UK Reviews

Nespresso machines are pod-type espresso makers which use single-use pods containing coffee grounds, meaning that you won’t need a grinder and beans. Pod-type machines save a lot of effort because you can simply slide a pod into your coffee maker and it will make a coffee for you, provided it has water.

In today’s article, I’m going to cover three of the best Nespresso machines on the market in this comprehensive review guide. I’ll give you the specifications of these coffee machines, and then I’ll provide you with a general overview of what to expect from them so that you can find the ideal model for your needs.

Best Bean To Cup Coffee Makers – Reviews Of The Top UK Machines

Caffeine and drinks that contain it are beloved for various reasons, depending on who you ask. The college student frantically studying at the last moment will tell you that they love coffee for its stimulant effects. On the other hand, the afternoon just wouldn’t be the same without a piping hot cup of tea.

However, I’m going to be focusing on coffee today, which is admittedly not as popular in the UK as it is in the US and Canada. However, people do tend to grow curious, and that very curiosity is seen as the driving force behind the rising number of coffee drinkers in Britain.

DeLonghi Caffe Corso ESAM2800 Coffee Machine – UK Review

If you’re anything like me, the first thing on your mind when you roll out of bed in the morning is something like, “It’s way too early for this, I need a very strong cup of coffee.” While I spent the better part of my younger years using a standard drip coffee maker and drinking the occasional cup of tea, I eventually developed a taste for espresso.

Maybe I liked the fact that espresso was strong enough to satisfy my considerable caffeine tolerance or perhaps I just liked the taste. Needless to say, though, I was hooked. It was only a matter of time before I became a bit of a connoisseur in the realm of coffee beans and espresso makers.

Call me a nerd, but hey we’ve all got to have a hobby right?

Making the one-time purchase and investing into your own espresso maker can save you a lot of money over time, and if you purchase a high-quality unit it can easily last you for years at a time.
