How to recycle your coffee pods:
If you can’t get enough of your tasty coffee blends but also can’t stand that the little code pods aren’t recyclable, you’re not alone. Thankfully, there’s a handy little do-dad that can solve this annoyance. The Dualit EcoPress is an item that lets you crush the coffee out of a pod, allowing both the coffee and the plastic pod to be disposed of correctly. It’s super easy and quick to use, and it’s not expensive. We can’t recommend it enough.

What type of coffee machine should you buy?
There are several different types of coffee machine, so think about what your favourite drink is, and how much time you might have in the morning - plus, your budget, obviously - before deciding whether to buy a capsule coffee machine, one that uses ground coffee, or a bean-to-cup version.
Bean-to-cup coffee machines
Quite literally take the coffee beans, grind them, and make the espresso, all at the touch of a button - your coffee is made fresh every time.
Ground coffee machines
Choose your pack of ground coffee, pop it in, and off the machine goes. You can buy ready ground coffee, or, buy a separate coffee grinder and grind fresh beans yourself. This type of coffee machine is the most time-consuming as you're prepping a lot more, but it means the coffee can be more individual. They tend to be smaller than bean-to-cup machines.
Capsule coffee machines
These use little capsules, like a Nespresso machine. Pop the capsule in and off it goes. No messing around with beans or grinds, so these coffee machines are real time savers and need less tidying up after. One for you if time is precious.
However, you're often limited to one type of capsule, and then there's the matter of recyclability of single-use plastics, so they're not the most eco-friendly - and they can be pricey.
Other features & accessories
Many coffee machines feature a milk frother or steamer, but you can also buy these individually (milk frothers make great presents!). You'll need a frother or steamer if you want a latte or cappuccino.
Some new models of coffee machines are smart, meaning you can connect via an app to set it to make a coffee while you're still in bed or on the sofa.
