Thanks for subscribing to the Coffee makers newsletter. The truth is, it is not easy to launch this ezine, what am I going to talk about? People just want to browse then buy their coffee machines, why would they want to subscribe to some newsletter?
Then, as I build my site, I discovered that folks that drink coffee would always drink it. which meant that these information might not be relevant for you today, but it might be few months or a year down the road when you want to upgrade to a new coffee maker.
Every issue, we would be discussing about one particular type of machines which would be the title of the newsletter (e.g. for this first issue, it would be the cofee grinders. Feel free to archive these newsletter, and at any one time you want to read the back issue: come back here!

Then, there is the nespresso, a very established brand that is only interested to bring you the best coffee. Their machines are stylish and their coffee is good. Their price is also on the higher side.
Up and coming brand keurig, with more than 100 plus beverages for consumers to choose from, many coffee drinkers switch to this brand for its convenience and affordability. Good value for money for the type of convenience that it offers.
Tassimo is very similar to keurig with its own unique variety of beverages, and it has this unique code on the back of all its t-disc that would enable the machine to brew according to the conditions of the beverage.
