This is how coffee machines with grinders are tested
When evaluating coffee machines with grinders, testers and specialist magazines attach importance to a number of factors. These can include coffee quality, ease of use, grinder volume, size of the machine and its ability to produce different grinds.
First, the coffee is checked for taste, aroma and temperature. A good coffee should be rich, full-bodied and at the right temperature.
Ease of use is another important aspect. The machine should be easy to use and clean. Also, the controls should be intuitive and easy to understand.
In addition, the testers test the volume of the grinder. A loud grinder can be annoying, especially early in the morning.
The testers also take into account the size of the machine and how easy it is to integrate into a kitchen.
Finally, the machine's ability to produce different degrees of grinding is tested. A good grinder should be able to grind from very fine to very coarse.
