SHOP: 5 Compact Coffee Machines for Different Budgets

1. Didi ESE Pod Coffee Machine

Let's start this list with the ultimate fuss-free machine I've ever come across with. The Didi coffee machine is an absolute delight for hurried mornings or quick afternoon pick-me-ups. The machine uses ESE (a.k.a. Easy Serve Espresso) pods that are a great alternative if you haven't quite mastered grinding, measuring, and brewing your espresso the traditional way, but haven't quite bought into capsule coffee machine trend. These "pods" come in a similar packaging to teabags, only they contain pre-ground coffee. You just insert one and press the button to brew your cup. After that, you just take it out and throw it (or compost it!) without any mess.


The Didi ESE pod coffee machine is ideal for frequent coffee drinkers who don't want the hassle when preparing coffee and cleaning up afterwards. See how it works here.
