Some coffee machines look really stylish on your kitchen bench top but perhaps fail to deliver the quality brew you are after.
Other coffee machines churn out great coffee day after day after day but perhaps take up too much room on your counter top or are simply too hard to clean or perhaps take too long to heat to the required temperature.
BUT the BEST coffee machine ticks both boxes; it looks great in you kitchen AND it performs a treat, serving you top quality, barista-style coffee time and time again.
So, given that we want both style and performance, what do we have in the market that comes in under the $1,000 bracket.
You can see from the images below just why these machines tick both the stylish as well as the performance boxes.
