Once upon a time you wouldn’t have caught a Brit choosing anything other than a good cup of tea to brighten up the afternoon, but these days we aren’t so much a nation of tea drinkers as die hard coffee lovers. After all, theres nothing like a shot of espresso for that caffeine hit — what would we do without it? Whether you're a coffee or tea drinker (or both), you will need a great kettle for your cuppa and no luxury kitchen is complete without a top of the range coffee machine, or for traditionalists a cafetiere or percolator. For many of us our kettles or coffee machines are the first thing we turn to every morning so make your choice wisely. Even though brewing your beverage of choice might seem straightforward buying the right appliances can seem like a minefield; there are so many options and accessories to choose from!

Here are some tips to help you choose whether to just stick to a standard kettle or coffee machine or splash out on a top of the range model:

What kind of kettle should I buy?


For many, convenience is key. Most people opt for an electric kettle as it is fast and requires just a flip of a switch or the push of a button. There are so many styles and colours to choose from these days so you can really have fun with your kettle choice. From ultra sleek stainless steel to classic vintage styles in pastels to bold statement colours, there’s a kettle to suit every kitchen. If you prefer the traditional look, a whistling kettle can look great on your stove, but require a little more patience as they take more time to heat up. If you are a fussy tea drinker then there are some great digital kettles available now which allow you to select the exact water temperature for your drink. If you prefer your loose leaf tea (and have some money to spend!) then there are even kettles with inbuilt motorised baskets which automatically lowers tea leaves into and out of the water at precisely the right time.

What are my coffee machine options?


The first step is to think about size as coffee machines can take up quite a bit of kitchen worktop space. If you are a true coffee connoisseur there are many bean to cup coffee machines which may be worth investing in but if you are just after that much needed morning jolt then why not go for a quick and easy capsule based coffee machine. If you like your coffee frothy then opt for a machine with an inbuilt milk frother allowing you the option of a filter coffee, latte or cappuccino depending on your mood!

How much should I expect to spend on my coffee machines and kettle?


Prices vary quite substantially, depending on what you want to get out of them. A top of the range bean to cup coffee machine can cost upwards of £1,000, while a simple filter coffee machine can be as little as £30. Similarly a basic plastic kettle can be picked up for as little as £10 but if you want to invest in quality and style then they can be upwards of £100.
Before setting down a few grand for the most expensive model of coffee machine, think about your preferred beverage and whether or not your prospective machine makes it to the style and quality you desire.
