A small coffee machine for the home

A small coffee machine for the home

When choosing a coffee machine one of the important criteria is the size of the device. Often it is this condition that becomes the main one. Especially when it comes to installation in an apartment or a small office, where available space is severely limited. In that case, a small coffee machine for home will be the ideal solution. Many manufacturers produce a whole line of compact devices that are in no way inferior to large-sized models.

Features of compact devices

The stereotype that a small coffee machine will be inherently inferior to a large-sized version is wrong in most cases. The size of the body has no direct correlation with functionality. The only exception is the “superautomatic” professional type. Given their capabilities, it is technically impossible to fit such machines into a small case.

The size of a coffee machine for the home usually varies in the range:

  • width – 23 to 25 cm;
  • height – 32 to 40 cm;
  • depth – at least 40 cm.

The narrowest models have a width of 19 to 21 cm, but manufacturers often compensate for this with greater depth, which can be considered a disadvantage. Moreover, even small coffee machines for home use will require space at the top or side (only when the container with used brews or other compartments open to the side).

The only significant disadvantage you’ll have to “pay” for the reduced size of the device is the small capacity. Compact home cereal coffee machines often have smaller tanks for coffee beans, water or milk, although this depends on the manufacturer.

The most popular models

The small coffee machine category doesn’t include many devices, although almost every brand has a compact series. Some of them, despite their small size, are in the “premium” category, with a price tag of more than $1,000 to $1,500.
