My Top 6 Coffee Machines for 2022- Richard Pearson Filthy House SOS

Updated: May 29

If you have seen me on Filthy House SOS or follow me on social media, you may have noticed my love of coffee. My coffee machine is my pride and joy and nothing beats a fresh cup in the morning!


My current machine has been fantastic and lasted brilliantly, but as you may imagine, it gets a lot of use! With Christmas coming up Rachel has decided it’s the perfect time to start looking for a newer model so I know what to ask Father Christmas for!


I am currently on the fence about whether to get a single serve capsule machine (these are so quick and easy to use for busy mornings or whenever you’re on the go!) or go all out on a espresso coffee maker… when you’ve got a long day ahead sometimes that extra effort is worth it for the perfect cup!


Rachel and I have picked out our Top 6 coffee machines from Amazon that look absolutely brilliant; if you have any of these please leave a comment and let us know your recommendations to help us decide!


Single Serve Capsule Machines

Best of Both Worlds: Breville One-Touch Coffee House Coffee Machine


My favourite thing about this machine is that I can choose to grab a quick coffee using a coffee pod or take my time and make a specialist coffee with the same machine, I also love that it comes with a milk frother!

MY STAR PICK (Worth the Price?!): NESPRESSO Professional Zenius Coffee Machine Starter Pack, Includes Aeroccino4 (Milk Frother)


We are all trying our best to do what we can to protect the environment, and sometimes the biggest impact can come from lots of small changes! Not only is this machine a fantastic option if you are not a barista, but want barista quality coffee, but it is the most sustainable option with lots of environementally-friendly features which to me make it worth the extra pennies if it is within your budget.

Best of Both Worlds: Swan Nordic One Touch Espresso Machine, Blue, 20 Bars of Pressure, Milk Frothing Steamer, 1.7L Tank, Scandi-style


This one would look right at home in my kitchen! I love the 'scandi-style' and the automatic frother and three coffee sizes keep it simple so making the perfect coffee every time is fool-proof!

Star Pick: Sage Barista Express Espresso Machine


This is the coffee machine that I personally own and love ! This machine definitely has it all and for a very reasonable mid-range price. Not only is the technology top-notch to ensure you extract the perfect flavour from your roast, but it gives you all the professional tools to make like a real life barista and create your favourite coffee form bean to cup. I would advise that whilst this machine is a little more complicated, with practise you will become a pro and the end result is worth it!

· Integrated precision conical burr grinder grinds on-demand to deliver the right amount of freshly ground coffee directly into the portafilter for your preferred taste with any roast of bean

· Digital temperature control (PID) delivers water at precisely the right temperature
