Coffee is the most popular hot beverage in the world, with approximately 55 million cups drank every day in the UK alone. 80% of UK households buy instant coffee, but there has been a striking rise in the number of coffee pod and ground coffee machines that are also being sold. As a nation, we have fully adopted the ground coffee phenomenon.
Choosing the right coffee machine, and coffee machine accessories, ensures that you can make a great tasting cup of coffee, an espresso that will wake you up first thing in the morning, or a cappuccino to savour. It is also possible to create other coffee drinks like Americanos and Lattes with the use of milk frothers and other additions. Accessories like tampers and blades make the process even easier, and help to further ensure that you get a great tasting cup of your favourite coffee drink every time.
Not all coffee machines are made equal, however, and there is a seemingly baffling array of options available. Sage coffee machines, which are manufactured by Sage in collaboration with celebrity chef Heston Blumenthal, are premium quality coffee machines, with many models enabling the making of superb tasting lattes and other drinks in a minute or less.
The Sage range also includes frothers and grinders, and you can make your whole kitchen match with the full range of Heston Blumenthal appliances and kitchenware items. At ECookShop we have a large selection of Sage coffee machines. Choose a coffee machine that automates the whole process for you, or one that requires your input so that you can customise your drinks and preferences with every cup.
Choosing Coffee Machines
There are different styles of coffee machine. Filter coffee machines make simple filter coffee. You will need an Espresso machine if you want to make cappuccinos, lattes, and other coffee based drinks. Most Espresso machines use ground coffee, but this only has a short shelf life; beans stay fresher for longer, and this means that you will get a better tasting coffee every time, although it does mean that you will also need to grind the beans to the right consistency.
If you drink coffee regularly enough, then you may not need a bean to coffee machine, but some people enjoy the process of grinding beans as part of the overall coffee making process. If you drink lattes and cappuccinos, that require frothed and warm milk, then a machine with a milk frother will save you having to buy a frother separately. Choose the features that match your preferred style of coffee and that have the additional features and settings that you require.
Celebrity chef Heston Blumenthal has collaborated with kitchenware manufacturer Sage to design and create a range of high quality Sage coffee machines. These machines can be used in cafes and restaurants, but there are also some models that are designed specifically for use in the home kitchen.
The coffee machines are just one line in the Heston Blumenthal Sage kitchen range, and the selection of different models ensures that you can choose a Sage Espresso machine according to all of your preferences and tastes.
The Temp Control
As well as Sage coffee makers, we at ECookShop also supply accessories and other items to further improve your coffee making experience. The Temp Control is a milk jug for those that are serious about their lattes and coffees. The internal thermometer allows you to accurately control the exact temperature of the milk, and you can use the jug for frothing your milk, with a separate frother, too.
Control the temperature of your coffee milk between 55c and 75c. It holds a maximum of 480ml of milk, which should be more than enough for the majority of uses.
The Knock Box
The Knock Box is a convenient addition to an espresso machine setup. Emptying the coffee ground puck into the bin means potentially knocking an expensive filter to extract the used contents. It also means possible contamination from the bin itself, and if you don't have a bin near your Espresso machine, then you need somewhere to safely and easily dispose of your used coffee grounds.
The Sage coffee machine knockbox includes a knock bar that makes it easier and cleaner to knock the grounds out of the filter. The stainless steel filter is easy to clean and hygienic, and is durable enough that it will last for years even with regular use.
Ground coffee has a short shelf life. Even once purchased, the grounds are already beginning to lose their original flavour, and once the packet seal is broken, you need to consume the coffee within a few days. The alternative is to buy coffee beans. Beans stay fresher for a lot longer, but you will need to have a viable means of grinding the beans into a usable consistency of coffee grind.
A coffee grinder is designed for this very purpose, and the Sage Dose Control is an automatic grinder that has a huge array of settings so that you can create the perfect grind for your tastes. Adjust grind time in increments of 1 second, choose from 60 grind settings ranging from Espresso to Plunger, and the design of the grinder means that this is the perfect coffee grinding machine for commercial use or for home use because it delivers a consistent grind every time.
