Tea, coffee & espresso makers

A great mug of coffee or tea can feel revitalising and comforting, the perfect remedy for a tiring day. But to make a brew that is as delicious as possible, you need the right equipment. Whether you’re a one-and-done Nespresso machine and coffee pods person; or you’re all about the process from bean roasting to brewing, eBay has everything you need.

The easiest route to a great cup of coffee
There are so many quick and easy ways to make a cafe-quality coffee in your own kitchen. With the right coffee machine, espresso machine or French press, yours can be done in minutes. For the smoothest experience, opt for a coffee pod machine like a Nespresso Vertuo or De'Longhi Essenza. When using coffee pods, finding your favourite flavour is effortless. Pods are marked by their intensity so it’s easy to find details about the roast level and flavour notes. Best of all, you leave all the technical processes like roasting and grinding to the experts — all you have to do is drink up!

The expert way to make coffee
Brands like De'Longhi and innovations like Nespresso pods make brewing and drinking coffee easy. But true coffee aficionados want greater control than what many of these machines can offer. The quality of the coffee beans, coffee grinder, sieve and filters used in the coffee-making process can transform a cup of coffee from good to great.

  • Coffee beans: Brewing with whole coffee beans that you’ve ground yourself rather than pre-packaged coffee grounds creates a fresher flavour.
  • Coffee grinder: Grinding your own beans with a coffee grinder allows you greater control over the size of the grounds. This has a big impact on the flavour and aroma of your coffee.
  • Coffee sieve: Coffee sieves allow greater control over your ground size. They sift out grounds that are too large and too small.
  • Coffee filters: Coffee filters separate the grounds from your brew for a smoother drink.

The best coffee machine for you
There are so many different types of coffee machines on the market. It can be overwhelming to find one that offers you everything you need. If you’re new to the world of at-home coffee machines, it’s best to stick with the classic household names.

  • Nespresso machines: Nespresso is well known for the quality of its coffee pod machines. If you want a machine that’s easy to use and instantly yields amazing results, try the Nespresso Vertuo.
  • De'Longhi coffee machines: De'Longhi creates great entry-level coffee machines that are high quality and fairly priced. For an easy-to-use espresso machine, the De’Longhi Dinamica is a fantastic choice with all-in-one functionality.
  • Sage machines: Sage offers control and flexibility throughout the brewing process. For a high-quality, beginner-friendly machine, the Duo-Temp Pro is an outstanding choice.

Time for tea
Making tea can be just as simple or complex as brewing coffee. For a quick cup of tea, it’s hard to beat an electric kettle and a tea bag. For a cup that honours the rich flavour notes and history of tea, loose leaf tea and a teapot is the superior option. To fully appreciate the flavour and aroma, make sure you serve it in a bone china teacup rather than a mug. To complete this luscious tea-making experience, clean up any spills with your fluffiest tea towels.
