Coffee Lovers, Help & Advice, KitchenAid, Miele, New Products, Product Reviews, Smeg

Deciding to purchase a coffee every time you go out can be a pretty expensive habit. According to the British Coffee Association, in the UK, we drink around 98 million cups of coffee per day.

However, with the perfect at-home machine and sustainable travel mug, you can enjoy your favourite barista-style drinks straight from the comfort of your kitchen. Investing in your own coffee machine gives you the opportunity to practise your barista skills whilst making eco-conscious choices surrounding your coffee beans and energy usage.

Fortunately, there are lots of coffee machines on the market giving you a wide selection from a variety of top brands. Choosing the best coffee machine for you depends on what kind of coffee is your favourite and how much time and money you want to invest in the brewing process.

At Gerald Giles, we’re not a team of baristas, but we do understand how important it is to purchase the right appliance, especially if you’re passionate about coffee. From manual espresso to filter coffee, if you want it, we stock it.

Smeg Coffee Machines

One of our best-selling brands is the iconic Smeg. Year after year, Smeg manufactures the most aesthetically pleasing retro-inspired kitchen appliances that match and complement one another, keeping consistency and style in every product.

If you settle on purchasing a Smeg coffee machine you may be pleased to know we also stock matching kettles and toasters in the same shade and glossy finish!

On our website, we currently stock the Smeg Drip Filter Coffee Machine and two varieties of the Smeg Espresso Coffee Machine in 50’s Retro Style. All of these products come in a variety of charming colours and emulate the Americana diner style so popular in today’s modern kitchenware.

Smeg is an Italian homeware manufacturer that has been producing household appliances since 1948. Inspired by 50’s kitchens, Smeg produces timeless pieces suitable for a wide variety of homes and styles. Still based in Italy, Smeg prides itself on Italian excellence and quality manufacturing for all.

Smeg coffee machines are compact yet reliable, pleasing to the eye and are sure to garner lots of compliments from any guest in your home. Their most popular espresso machine, the Smeg ECF01CRUK comes complete with a stainless-steel filter, removable water tank, and milk steamer helping you to perfect the most difficult of latte art. With its Thermoblock heating system, the water tank boils super quickly ensuring you get your drink with little to no waiting time.

If you’re looking for a larger appliance, then the Smeg BCC02BLMUK will be perfect for you. Based on the original ECF01CRUK, this appliance still emulates the retro 50s style Smeg are known for but with a mid-century twist. It also contains a larger water tank, holding 1.4 litres in total – perfect for holding extra cups when hosting. With a 2-year warranty, customer satisfaction is at the heart of their brand. An eye-catching option, this bean-to-cup appliance is the perfect choice to satisfy any coffee fix.

If you’re a fan of the simpler things in life and would prefer a filter coffee machine, the Smeg DCF02WHUK Drip Filter Coffee Machine is sure to add a touch of charm to your kitchen. Small and stylish, this machine allows you to prepare up to 10 cups of richly flavoured coffee, perfect if your home is bustling with guests and family members. The DCF02 offers a choice of aroma intensities, from intense to delicate, so satisfying all palates.

KitchenAid has been operating and producing kitchen appliances for over 100 years! This brand prides itself on being Serious About Food and produces iconic products that combine professionalism, artistic quality, and iconic design.

At Gerald Giles, we stock two KitchenAid coffee appliances and additional kitchenware in matching colourways. Firstly, is the KitchenAid 5KCG8433BAC Burr Coffee Grinder. With its superior grinding precision and variety of grind sizes, this smart device can grind directly into your portafilter. It is the perfect accompaniment to any espresso machine, meaning you don’t have to travel far to enjoy the delicious taste of artisan coffee. The exceptional grinder also stores coffee beans in an airtight container helping them keep fresh for longer.

Through specialised German engineering, this machine brings the art of espresso to your kitchen counter.
