If you’re anything like me, you’re addicted to two things. One’s a burger and the other is my morning coffee. You can probably tell by my website that I’m very into food and drinks and most specifically burgers, however, I really do enjoy my coffee as well, and making sure I can get the best coffee made for me in the morning is a key ritual in starting my day.
The Russell Hobbs retro style coffee maker is one that hasn’t garnered the most attention in recent years, with some companies such as Cuisinart, Breville and others taking over the coffee market, it’s been hard for the smaller brands such as RH to get a grip on this market. This shouldn’t discredit this excellent coffee maker though, it’s truly one of the best out there. I use it every day in the morning and I have tried the most expensive at home coffee makers, to only be disappointed afterward with the lackluster coffee I received. I’ve used my own knowledge to write about this coffee maker, however, I also referenced this great article by Delicious on some fantastic coffee makers!
The first amazing feature of this coffee machine is the advanced showerhead technology, that allows this machine to produce high-quality drip coffee with a balanced taste. Ever come across that harsh bitter taste when brewing your coffee at home? This is usually caused by some beans being roasted too much, and dripping through at an unbalanced rate.
A water level indicator on the inside cup allows you to measure the perfect amount of water for your brew. Want a more intense brew? Then use more coffee and less water, however, if you have a preference for a light coffee, then go for less coffee and more water. If you’re looking to make coffee for a large group, then I recommend using a lot of coffee and lots of water.
The pause and pour feature is the last amazing unique characteristic of this coffee machine, it allows the Russell Hobbs 8 cup to have a large capacity whilst also allowing you to stop the machine whenever and pour your one-two cups before brewing more, or completely stopping your brewing process.
