The beans you add to your coffee machine are not just seeds. They’re full of flavor. Bean-to cup machines let you control the flavor of your coffee with just the touch of a button.

Many of these machines are also offer perfectly texturized, barista style drinks.


Most coffee machines use the water reservoir which stores the hot water used in brewing. The reservoir is housed within the machine and is typically constructed from plastic or glass. Some models include a water filtering system that ensures that the coffee is free of impurities.

When you switch on the machine, the machine’s pump will pump water from the dispenser into the grinder and into the filter basket. When the coffee grounds are ground, a spray head pulls them through the filter before dumping them into the cup below. As the hot water drips into the carafe, it flows through the filter leaving an unintense layer (ground coffee with velvety sheen).

Certain bean-to-cup coffee makers also make milky drinks like lattes or cappuccinos. If you like these drinks, try a model with a built-in steam wand. This allows you to make drinks like this by pressing a button!

The top bean to cup coffee makers allow you to alter the grind settings so you can get a perfect black coffee every time. This feature is offered in all models of coffee machines that we offer at Coffee Friends. It’s great when you want to get the best flavor from each batch of beans. Some of our premium models can even save your preferences.

Hot-Water Tube

The machine might appear to be performing an easy job however, it’s actually working extremely difficult. It takes the water you pour into the machine and then passes it through the tube attached to the hole in the bottom of reservoir on one side and the aluminum heating element on the other.

When you turn on the machine the resistive heating element begins to heat up and that causes the water sitting in the aluminum tube to boil. The bubbles formed by the boiling water rise up through the opening in the reservoir’s bottom, and then onto the exit hose. The bubbles carry hot water up the tube to the coffee maker.

If you’re noticing that your coffee maker is making strange sounds, it could indicate that something is not right with the one-way valve. It is either located at the bottom of the reservoir or inside the aluminum heating tube. This valve prevents the boiling water from returning into the reservoir and instead rising through the tube.

As the hot water drips down the sides, it releases the flavor of ground coffee beans. The coffee beans that are ground absorb the water and release the oils that contribute to the flavor of a delicious cup of joe.


A coffee machine’s grinder grinds beans before making coffee to ensure freshest taste. This is because coffee that has been ground quickly goes through a process of losing its aroma and flavor. The majority of fully automatic models have adjustable settings that allow customers to customize the strength and flavor of their coffee. Some machines also have built-in milk frothing to make latte and cappuccino, thereby increasing their ability to be versatile.

The final product is the most important element to think about when selecting a filter coffee maker. Manufacturers try to turn your head by promoting numerous extra features, but if you’re not sure that you’ll use these features, it’s better to stick with a less complicated model – one that will likely cost less.

A programmeable timer – set the machine to start and brew at a set time, perfect for machine those who like to wake up to the scent of freshly brewed coffee.

Manual milk texturing – If you like a cappuccino, latte or macchiato then you should look for a device that has the manual steam wand, which will warm and froth your preferred milk to the right consistency.

Bean hopper capacity – The larger the bean hopper is, the less you need to fill it up.

Free-standing or integrated If you’re thinking about a fully automatic bean-to-cup coffee maker, you should choose an integrated model to ensure that it is a good fit in the kitchen’s design and doesn’t take up valuable space on your worktop. On the other the other hand, if your preference is to have a more flexible appliance which can be moved between different rooms, or used on the go, then consider a freestanding model. Some models can be used with a kettle that allows you to make coffee while on the move. This is a wonderful feature to have if you’re a commuter and often find yourself running out the door without a chance to make a cup of coffee.
