The best coffee machines for the perfect at home cup of coffee


Coffee machines have come on leaps and bounds in recent years and for maximum flexibility in a kitchen design, choosing a freestanding coffee machine that will fit into a countertop breakfast cupboard is a great idea.

It’s always important to allow for the coffee machine in a design to ensure that access is easy and the depth of the cupboard can be adjusted for extra large machines. We often get asked in design meetings which are the most popular, so we thought we would share some of the favourites with HM clients right now.
