Remodeling a kitchen not only adds value to your home but also allows you to enjoy a beautiful life style at home. Kitchen major appliances have played increasingly important roles in any of these renovation projects thanks to the features like energy saving, powerful functions, innovative technologies and integrated modern design. However, you may feel overwhelming to decide what and which appliance to purchase since there is just too much information out there. That is why we started to write about the kitchen major appliances not long ago and hope the information we present here can be of any help to your kitchen renovation or refresh project. In today’s blog, we are going to talk about built-in coffee system. So, if you always dream to wake up to a cup of gourmet coffee or plan to put up a chic coffee bar you’ve always wanted in time for the next party, read on to find if a built-in coffee system is for you.
Appliances are disappearing from countertops in today’s luxury homes. Built-in coffee makers offer a one-stop coffee shop in your kitchen. Such integrated brew systems are becoming both more common and increasingly automated—able to make a cup of coffee that fits individual tastes. Whether your regular order is a black coffee or something special, a quality built-in coffee machine makes it easy to be your own barista from the comfort of home. With a sleek and modern design and minimal fuss, this fully automated kitchen feature can have the perfect cuppa joe in your hands, ready to greet the day in no time. A built-in coffee system usually includes a bean grinder with a half-dozen settings, adjustable dispensers that accommodate a range of cup sizes and multiple spouts that allow more than one drink to be prepared at the same time. Here are the benefits of a built-in coffee system.
- Free up the countertop space. Built-in coffee machines save a lot of countertop space because there is nothing bulky on your countertop, no cords that you constantly mess around.
- Sleek and modern. A built-in coffee maker is a statement-making piece in a kitchen, offering you an integrated and stream-lined look.
- Fresh taste. Built-in coffee machines usually come with a grinder since they are bean-to-cup devices. Brewing coffee with freshly ground coffee gives you a fresh and rich-tasting cup of coffee.
- A reliable source of hot water. Since your built-in coffee machine is permanently connected to a water supply, it can constantly provide you with hot water to make a variety of hot drinks for yourself.
- Cost effectivity. If you are a regular at your nearest coffee shop, buying an appliance to make coffee at home might save you money instead of getting a take-out coffee for yourself.
Here are the must-have features when you are looking for one:
Built-in coffee machines can integrate into any kitchen design as it displays a modern look. It offers easy installation to the surrounding kitchen fixtures since most of these coffee machines are made of top quality materials that contribute positively to the overall kitchen design.
Likewise, these sophisticated built-in coffee machines create a streamlined look which captivates the minimalist concept that is clutter-free and countertop space-saving. Most importantly, you can find built-in coffee machines in different finish options, with stainless steel as the most popular finish for its simplicity.
What makes a coffee machine extra special is its ability to produce a rich, creamy froth. Any coffee machine can do it, but built-in coffee machines can prepare it consistently no matter how many times you use it. The secret? It’s in the boilers.
Integrated espresso machines use steel boilers because they can absorb and retain heat. It enables you to brew a large number of shots because the boiler will not cool quickly. At the same time, you can steam milk and produce froth simultaneously while maintaining the milk’s temperature at its best.
So when you use a UHT milk to create a creamy foam with a built-in coffee machine, expect its quality to liken the froth often prepared by professional baristas.
Adjustable Coffee Grinder
The most flavorful coffee has a preferred grind quality. There’s no one-grind-fits-all. So if you want to buy an espresso machine to use frequently and produce the same quality of coffee, the built-in coffee machine is your sure bet.
Removable Water Tank with In-line Water Supply
Recent models of built-in coffee machines come with a removable water tank with inline water supply. It is a must-have integrated coffee machine to include in your kitchen renovation if you can’t go a day without espresso.
A direct connection to a water supply in your espresso machine eliminates the need to frequently refill the water tank of your fully automatic coffee maker. It secures you from possible accidents from water spillage, especially on internal electrical components.
Also, it prevents water from sitting too long in the water tank because an inline water supply guarantees fresh water for a freshly brewed coffee. However, if you’ll be opting for an espresso machine with inline water supply, make sure that the water quality is “soft” or between 0 ppm and 50 ppm. That’s because hard water can damage an espresso machine.
Easy to Clean
Fully automatic and semi-automatic built-in coffee makers are high-end kitchen appliances, but it doesn’t mean that these are hard to maintain. They are easy to clean and maintain as each, and every automatic coffee maker has a descaling program and removable parts. Best of all, some of these parts are dishwasher-safe.
Descaling program in espresso machines is an essential feature because it removes mineral build up in the brew group of the device. Keep in mind that all water contains minerals that pass through the coffee machine. It can accumulate in the heating component of the coffee machine, which is called limescale. If not removed, it can affect the taste of your coffee.
A warranty is an essential feature to look at coffee machines because it shows how much manufacturers care about their customers’ experience and products. You can use the warranty for repairs or replacement if something goes wrong with the product you’ve purchased.

That being said, so, what will be a good choice for efficient cooking now? Induction cooking may be the answer.Continue reading
