Well, let's just say that this article is written for the group of folks that asked me about the best coffee machine in Sengkang, Singapore.
Anyone would want to have a coffeemaker that brews coffee that suits their lifestyle. Note that the word I used is lifestyle and not taste profile. You might like to drink espresso, but whether an espresso machine can fits into your lifestyle, that is another matter altogether.
Before moving on to the 4 simple rules on choosing the right coffee machines, please ignore the terms used in the coffee industry. Coffeemaker used to meant only drip coffee makers.

But now, it is becoming a generic terms, you have espresso coffee maker, single serve coffee maker, then even vending machine are known as commercial coffee maker, I think you get the point.
If you want to find and buy a coffeemaker within minutes, then following these 4 rules which I am highlighting would greatly assist you in this area. While some ladies might beg to differ, I gues most of us would want to find and buy that coffee machines as fast as we can.
1. Knowing your life
As mentioned earlier, buying a coffee maker, must be one that can fit into your life. Sure, if you love the usual long black or a white coffee, then buying a drip filter coffee machine is easy.
But, if you are someone that loves to drink espresso, but are a very busy man that would not have the time to brew the espresso, then an automatic espresso machine might not be the solution for you.
So, evaluate you lifestyle and shortlist a few that can fit into your it.
2. Knowing your taste
If you breakdown lifestyle into its simplest form, you can 2 category, the busy and the easy folks. The busy folks would need quick solutions while the easy folks have time to spare and can afford to maybe even take up a new skill as they learn to brew coffee.
But, regardless which group you fall under, taste remains an important consideration. Take the busy folks for example, they might be too busy to make espresso using automatic espresso machine, but they can still get gourmet espresso from one of the single serve coffee makers.
3. Knowing your budget
Although, this is 3rd place in my 4 rules, to many of us, it might be the number 1 rule. But, don't always think that the lowest initial retailing price the might be the cheapest.
Imagine getting a S$50 drip coffeemaker but having it breakdown after few months and then over a span of 1 year, having to change a few coffee machines. While, what I am citing might be on the extreme end, frequent breakdown is a very real situation of the less costly machine.
Get feedback and listen to other folks' experience and get a coffee machine that can last you at least two years. Then, depreciate it over 24 months (a good brand coffee machine should be brewing coffee for at least 2 years).
Use this method and evaluate which machines can fit into your budget.
4. The coffee experience
This last rule has nothing to do with coffeemaker but the experience of drinking coffee. While, experts and coffee lovers might not agreed with the statement that I would be making, they cannot deny it validity:
Go for the experience rather than the "best taste", for good coffee taste comes from a beautiful coffee moment and that can only happens when the experience is positive. And experience has to come from a good time with your love ones.
So, what I am saying is, regardless what coffee making device you have decided on, enjoy it with your love ones and that would be your best choice of coffee maker...
