Lifesaving Machines

A large number of people love to drink coffee. It not only provides that wake up boost but also warms up the body on a cold day. Before the advent of coffee machines, the process of making coffee was a chore.

Coffee has been a staple beverage of most people since the days of early Egyptians. It quickly spread to the neighbouring countries. The earliest known methods of coffee preparation were roasting the beans on open fire and then adding to boiling water for consumption.

The first coffee machine came into existence in 1818 and was invented by a gentleman named Mr. Laurens. It has been modified through the ages. It came to be known as the ‘cowboy pot' because of the number of cowboys who began using it.

In 1890, the Manning-Bowman Percolator was marketed in the United States. These percolators were made out of linen with a cloth that had to be cleaned after every use. In 1912 the cloth was replaced by a paper filter. The cleaning up process became easier and coffee machines became popular. In 1960 coffee pots with disposable filters began being used commercially.

But if you think, you have to spend a lot of money for your coffee machine to be any good, think again. They can be picked up for much less. Rather than spending precious money at cafes, it would be much more sensible to invest in a coffee machine. And if you are on a budget, then a coffee machine hire would be the best bet.

Kenco, a company based in the UK, has a variety of coffee machines to choose from. Whatever your need, they have just the right machine for you. You can choose from their Tabletop, Floor Standing and Kenco Singles machines. Their range of coffee machines offer drinks made from freshly ground coffee beans to coffee made out of soluble ingredients. Their floor standing machines offer coffee in the bean to cup variety.

Life is too short to drink bad coffee. Your day depends on how good your early morning coffee is. If buying that particular life saving coffee machine is too big for your pocket, go for a coffee machine hire and be done with it.
