COFFEE MAKERS DON'T FORGET YOUR RESEARCH HAVING a coffee maker or ma- chine at home is all the rage. But if you're looking to buy, you're like- ly to be overwhelmed with vast choices available. So it pays to do the basics before shopping. Think how much coffee you make at home and how big the family is. For small families, a simple manual machine will do. Work out a budget. Coffee ma- chines can cost anywhere between a few hundred dollars to thou- sands. Features you need. Read through many product details be- fore you make this decision, be- cause there is so much available in market today. Check models. Look around and buy something that will give years of enjoyment. PRODUCTS DAILY GRIND A PLEASURE HOME COFFEE MACHINE ERA Janita Singh Coffee making machinery could be coming to a kitchen near you. Above: Smeg's Classic/Linear and right: DeLonghi's PrimaDonna BEANS COUNT To make specialities such as espresso, Breville's Phil McKnight advises using freshly roasted beans and grinding them just before brewing. I suggest buying the best conical burr grinder you can afford, preferably with dose control,'' he says. AUSTRALIANS have had a long love affair with coffee. And although our cafe culture is booming, experts say we still prefer a home brew (although many of us are a far cry from instant coffee). Having a coffee machine at home is becoming increasingly common --- and making a cup of coffee can be about making a stylish statement. Now, in the comfort of our kitchen, we can get latte, espresso, macchiato, piccolo or mocha. Italian domestic appliance manufacturer Smeg says people are serious about investing in a good quality coffee machine. Smeg says coffee machine sales are booming --- and that the choices are endless. Automatic and manual coffee machines plus pods and capsule technology are all the rage now. Smeg's Classic and Linear built- in coffee machines are hot sellers. Both are fully automatic so the strength, temperature and length of coffee can be easily regulated. The company says temperature is a vital factor in making the perfect cup of coffee, with a com- mon complaint of domestic coffee lovers being that the coffee is not hot enough or the cream is not rich enough. The new DeLonghi PrimaDonna S De Luxe automatic coffee ma- chine range is slimline and stylish. DeLonghi chief executive Paolo Albertoni says Australian coffee lovers want Italian machines. ''The ultimate Italian coffee ex- perience can be re-created with family,'' he says. ''Tall, short, mild, extra strong, one or two cups --- creating the exact blend is as simple as pressing a button.''
