Having taken a 3 year break from coffee I’m well and truly addicted again, and I’m ok with that. I really like my coffee. It started with coffee at work but it wasn’t long before I needed a coffee machine at home. Naturally I went looking for an eco version. The old bench top machines I grew up and had in the office always seemed to have very short lives with pumps or electronics failing.
These manual machines are high touch, making your coffee becomes as much of the experience as drinking it. All those that I could find are listed, they each have different types of interactions so hopefully you’ll find one that works for you. If you don’t and something more automated remains more realistic make sure you review the sustainable capsule coffee alternatives.
