The popularity of coffee and coffee drinks has been growing for many decades. Of course, the huge demand is a great stimulus for the development and improvement. As a consequence, industry leaders regularly develop new series based on innovative technologies. But of course, the popularity of automatic espresso coffee machines and Nespresso single-serve coffee makers grows the fastest. For example, DeLonghi presented PrimaDonna, Dinamica, Magnifica and Autentica series, single-serve Nespresso CitiZ espresso coffee makers, and premium DeLonghi EPAM 960.75. GLM Maestos. Moreover, the DeLonghi Dinamica is today one of the most popular among mid-budget models.
Philips also does not lag behind its competitors. As known, in 2009 company bought the famous Italian Saeco. Today Philips offers very popular Philips 1200, 2200 and 3200 based on the new platform.
The famous Swiss Jura has also expanded its range with E8 and C8, which became a continuation of the popular Jura E6.
The legendary Italian Gaggia presented last year Gaggia Cadorna series, including Style, Plus, Milk and Prestige coffee machines.
But apart from expanding the range of traditional models, companies are actively looking for new ways of development. Portable espresso coffee machines perfectly illustrate this trend. These coffee makers have evolved from the relatively simple AeroPress, which was first proposed in 2005, to Wacaco Pipamoka 2019, which provides high quality espresso making.
New drip coffee makers
However, the traditional drip, carob, geyser coffee makers and Moka (Bialetti) pots also retain their positions on market. In particular, the relatively low price, high organoleptic properties of coffee, simplicity and reliability ensure the competitiveness of drip models. As a result, companies continue to expand their offerings in this segment. For example, the Norwegian Wilfa last year presented an excellent Svart Precision WSP-2A, which replaced the legendary WSP-1.
But, of course, this is not the only novelty among drip coffee makers and list of new models is wide enough. However, several models stand out from the crowd. Of course, Chefman Froth & Brew, De’Longhi 3-in-1 Specialty Coffee Brewer and Smeg DCF02 are on this list.
