We are fast becoming a nation of coffee lovers.  And nothing hits the spot like a freshly ground coffee, artistically presented by your local barista.  While a trip to your favourite coffee shop is a delightful way to spend an hour or two, or grabbing a large vanilla latte on the go is a welcome treat - most of us need a little kick start first thing in the morning.  According to an article, “a cup of coffee in the morning improves your alertness and helps you overcome fatigue and drowsiness, giving you an energetic start to your day”

A daily coffee habit can end up being an expensive game, so investing in a good coffee machine can save you a fortune.  Equipped with timers, grinders, milk frother, no matter how you like your caffeine fix there is a machine out there for you.  Find a good quality insulated coffee mug and you have got coffee on the go.  No modern kitchen is complete without a coffee maker. That said, you don’t want to spoil the aesthetic of your stunning kitchen with a machine that exudes anything but style.

There are many types of coffee machines available to complement your Bryan Turner Kitchen  Ranging from the simplest to use pod machines, right the way up to a full barista machine that could rival Starbucks.  When choosing the right coffee machine for your kitchen ask yourself what is it you want?  Do you want something quick and simple?  What type of coffee do you prefer?  Are you an americano fan or is a latte more to your taste? How many cups do you need to make at a time?

Let’s take a look at the different types of machines you can choose, all available in a range of colours, finishes and styles to suit your kitchen:


Pod Coffee Machines

For speed, efficiency and simplicity a pod coffee machine can’t be beaten.  Literally fill the tank with water, pop in your pod and go.  If you love to try new flavours there is a huge variety of pods available. Due to the basic nature of these machines they are ideal for those wishing to take up little space with their coffee machine.  They are also perfect if you are the only coffee drinker in the house.


  • Quick and easy
  • No mess
  • Easy to clean and maintain
  • No filters
  • Huge range of flavours and types of coffee
  • Affordable and compact


  • Can’t be tailored to your taste
  • Coffee isn’t freshly ground
  • Less efficient for numerous cups


Filter Coffee Machines

You can’t go far wrong with a good filter coffee.  Made with ground coffee, the flavour is fresh and can be adjusted to your taste.  A variety of coffee flavours are available to purchase and you are free to experiment with the quantity of coffee you use per filter.  Depending on the number of cups you wish to brew at a time there are different sized jugs on the market.

If you would love to wake up to the smell of freshly brewed coffee in the morning (who wouldn’t?) you should invest in a coffee machine equipped with a timer.  Simply set it up before you go to bed, set the timer and start your day with the tantalizing aroma and a hot cup of your favourite coffee.


  • Can be made to your taste
  • Larger jugs can make several cups per brew
  • Most machines come with a hot plate to keep coffee warm
  • Timer function on some models


  • More time consuming that pod machine


Bean To Cup Machines

For the more discerning coffee fanatic the only way to enjoy coffee is freshly ground from beans. You can purchase a separate coffee grinder, however a bean to cup machine does it all for you. Beans are available to purchase at supermarkets, but for the freshest roasted beans always buy from a specialist.  A bean to cup operates much the same as a filter coffee machine. The only difference is that you add your beans to a built-in grinder.  Adjusting to your preferred strength is simple, many machines have a number of options for grinding and strength per cup. Much like a filter machine these are available with timer functionality.


  • Fresher taste, straight from the bean
  • Available in a variety of sizes to suit your needs
  • Timer function on some models
  • Can also use ground coffee


  • More time consuming


Barista Coffee Machine

 These machines are for the most serious of coffee fans - perhaps those who regularly entertain. It is one thing for sure a barista coffee machine will be a fabulous addition to your bespoke kitchen.  The most expensive option for a coffee machine, these beautiful pieces do everything you could wish for.


  • Full functionality for all coffee varieties
  • As close to barista coffee that you will get at home


  • More time consuming
  • Regular maintenance required
  • High price tag
  • Large space required
