Most people know about the history Italians have with coffee, and the De'Longhi brand is further proof of this. Their brand includes some budget home models of bean to cup coffee machines as well as more elite commercial models.

Some De’Longhi models include clever milk systems to allow you to put a supply of milk in the system, and this opens up a variety of different barista-style beverages that can be made at the press of a button.

Alternatively, you can go for simple espresso-based models in their range such as the Coffee machine De’Longhi “ECAM 250.23.SB”, which isn’t overly expensive compared to many competing options.

De’Longhi was originally a family business, founded in the early 1900s, and they were not focused on coffee machines. They have produced a variety of different appliances over the years, and you may already have some of their products in your kitchen.

This big company helps them to produce a lot of products for different price ranges.


This is a brand that has really grown a lot in recent years and it is no surprise when you sample their products. Melitta makes some really great bean to cup machines which provide incredible barista-style coffees.

The company is German, and they also sell a variety of other coffee products such as filters and coffee beans, this has been the basis of their business historically.

We love their Caffeo Barista range which is one of the best ways to create delicious coffee without any barista training.

The brand fuses a love and passion for coffee with an amazing level of German efficiency. There are some pretty affordable products in their range, too, so you don’t have to shell out a fortune just to get a decent cup of coffee. They also offer a two-year warranty with many of their machines to protect your purchase.

The Gaggia Brera Bean-to-Cup Coffee Machine is a classy machine that can be used either with or without milk, so you can make simple espresso and Americano drinks or more advanced, barista-style drinks using milk frothing and steaming.


The Siemens range of coffee machines includes only a couple of more affordable models for the home, such as the SIEMENS EQ.300 TI351209GB Bean to Cup Coffee Machine, but there are a variety of different products in the range that are designed to make huge tech advancements in the world of bean to cup coffee machines.

Many of the Siemens coffee machines are built with Smart technology meaning that you can control the bean to cup machine using an app. This is a fantastic way to check the levels of water and beans, and whether your system needs any maintenance, as well as being a convenient way to start the brewing process.

The SIEMENS EQ.700 TP705GB1 Smart Bean to Cup Coffee Machine is an example of a coffee machine that connects to your smarthome or to an app on your phone, so you can start the brewing process from the comfort of your bed in the morning.

Most Siemens bean to cup coffee machines also have a convenient touch display, so you don’t have to use it with the app.


These are some of the top brands that are making exceptional coffee machines. Buying from one of these brands will allow you to enjoy reliable coffee making with lots of different brewing options, ensuring there is always top-quality coffee available in your home or office.
