Coffee Makers: Put a Café In Your Kitchen
You don’t need to visit your favourite coffee shop to get that perfect cup ‘o joe every morning – just bring home a coffee maker and enjoy café-style coffee drinks in your own kitchen. Future Shop carries a wide selection of coffee makers from top brands like Keurig, TASSIMO (made by Bosch), Krups, Nespresso, Nescafé, Cuisinart, Breville, Hamilton Beach, KitchenAid, and MyFine. Here’s a brief overview of the different types of coffee makers available so you can choose the one that fits your taste buds the best.
Single-serve Coffee Makers
Whether you’re in the mood for fancy latte, or just want a steaming hot mug of your favourite dark roast blend, a single serve coffee maker is a simple and easy solution. These single serve systems work with pre-formulated cups that come in different flavours and blends of coffee, tea, hot chocolate, and more. The brewer does all the work – just insert the cup, press the button, and enjoy the delicious results, perfect every time.
Keurig K-cup System
The K-Cup system from Keurig has a wide variety of flavours and beverage types to choose from, including Green Mountain, Van Houtte, and Twinings. Their pressurized system delivers the precise amount of water at the right temperature with the right pressure to create the best flavour. Pick up the My K-Cup reusable filter and you can use the Keurig brewer with your own coffee grinds.
Nescafé Dolce Gusto System
The Dolce Gusto brewers can deliver 15 bars of pressure in order to maximize flavour and create coffee drinks in just a few seconds. Nescafé offers a wide variety of drinks including mochas, lattes, hot chocolates, macchiatos, and even iced tea!
TASSIMO T DISC System
These brewers from TASSIMO and Bosch use T DISCs: each T DISC cup is printed with a bar code, and the brewer reads the code, then adjusts the brew temperature, water volume, and brew time to make the drink exactly the way it should be made.
Drip Coffee Makers
You’re probably familiar with the standard drip type of coffee maker, but you might not be aware of some of the newer features that are now available. Some models come with their own built in bean grinder, while others have special settings like small-batch mode, which brews coffee for optimal flavour into included travel mugs. If you’re grinding your own beans remember to check your owner’s manual to select the proper grind coarseness to match your type of filter, which brings out the best flavour.
Channel your inner barista with an espresso machine on your kitchen counter. With a little bit of practice you’ll be making delicious lattes and cappuccinos for your dinner party guests, or for when you need a little treat after a long day at work. Select models come with their own grinder, to help ensure maximum freshness and flavour, and you can even get an espresso with its own milk frother, to create tasty milk-based coffee drinks at the touch of a button.
