Nescafe Dolce Gusto 'Drop' Automatic Silver Coffee Machine

This sleek capsule machine was designed to resemble a coffee drop and can create up to 30 hot and cold drinks, including coffees, hot chocolate and iced fruit teas. It has a hidden water tank and works with the lightest touch of your finger. It's pretty powerful too, with a maximum 15 bar pump pressure. €210, debenhams.ie

DeLonghi Dedica Stainless Steel Coffee Maker

Thanks to its quick heating technology, this pump machine can brew a cup within 35 seconds. It has an easy-to-use display panel, with illuminated buttons to guide you through the coffee-making process. A handy alarm lets you know when it's time to descale. €249, harveynorman.ie

DeLonghi Eletta Caffe Corso Bean-To-Cup Coffee Machine

This bean-to-cup machine has a silent grinder for quieter coffee bean grinding as well as the option to use ground coffee. It can make two cups of coffee at once, while the handy cup warmer heats up to four cups at the same time. This machine also requires less cleaning thanks to its automatic rinse cycle. €369.99, currys.ie

Sage Barista Pro Coffee Machine

Designed by celebrity chef Heston Blumenthal, this machine comes with a high price tag, but it's a semi-professional appliance that produces coffee exactly how you want it. With 18 different grind settings, you can choose precisely how fine you like your fresh coffee beans ground and the titanium blades will ensure the beans don't burn in the heat. The built-in milk frother allows you to whip up a rich, creamy foam for a cappuccino or latte. €769.99, harveynorman.ie
