Although the best espresso machines can cost over 500 dollars, there are many which are cheaper. What is the best Espresso Machine Under 100 you may therefore ask and the answer would be, there are several. Basically there are three types of espresso machine, the semi-automatic where you have to first rind the beans, the fully automatic which rind the beans for you and the so called super-automatic where you just touch a button and the machine does everything for you. It is of course the super-automatic espresso machines which cost the most and you may not even get a fully automatic espresso machine for less than 100 dollars but many people prefer the semi-automatic machines anyway because those are the ones which allow you to take in the aroma of the beans whilst you grind them. Regardless of which of these machines you choose and what price you pay, the coffee will only be as good as the type o beans that you use. At one time it was perhaps only Indonesia and South America that were known for their coffee beans but today things have changed and over 50 countries now grow coffee beans which are thought to be good. So called coffee experts have rated coffee beans from Hawaii, Costa Rica, Kenya, Jamaica and Ethiopia to be among the countries that grow the best beans in the world and so if you intend to do a tasting to find out which ones you like the best, those would be good ones to start with. Columbia is of course the most famous country for growing beans but the reason for that is that much of the instant coffee comes from there.
Although you can buy espresso in a growing number of places, often it is espresso made from whatever the beans the café decides to use and so all too often, you cannot get a cup of espresso made from your favourite coffee beans. This is perhaps the reason why it is becoming so popular or people to buy an espresso machine for use in their home. At least when you have your own espresso machine at home, you know you can enjoy your favourite cup of coffee at the start of the day and again in the evening, making do with whatever is available the rest of the time.
Many people today though, do still drink instant coffee and although it may be the easiest coffee to make as all you need is the instant coffee powder and a kettle to boil some water, those people are missing out on the real enjoyment of coffee. Each coffee bean from around the world has its own distinct flavor which is only really noticeable in coffees other than instant and so although instant coffee may give you the boost you need, it doesn’t always afford you the tasting sensation which espresso and other forms of coffee can offer you, which means you are missing out on what many think is one of the world’s great taste experiences.
