Whats the first in the morning that you do? Wait for your wife to stir a cup of coffee and wake you up with a kissing whisper. But have you ever thought even she is in a hurry to get ready for her office, prepare the breakfast, pack up your lunch and all other daily chores to be completed within that stipulated time. So why dont you assist her or be a more compatible partner? Its not that you will have to make your coffee at the break of the day. Instead you can be a more caring husband by adding a coffee maker to your wifes kitchen. Her birthday is scheduled next week. So this can be a surprise gift for her and believe that will put you on a higher position in your wifes eyes and she will stop panging on your irresponsibility. 

Coffee makers are there in abundant in the market and when you really decide to buy one, the problem arises which one to go for? And if you are a coffee aficionado, you will automatically get tempted whatever comes your way. Again after a lost of scrutiny, you land up in a hell lot of confusion. It may happen that finally you make a wrong choice in buying a coffee maker.

A very common but truly popular choice is a coffee percolator. Even your mamma might have used this because this is the traditional device of making coffee. The coffee percolator can be placed anywhere in the kitchen due to its optimum size and can be easily carried. Moreover coffee purists frequently come up with the notion that coffee made from a percolator tastes the best. Rich in aroma and flavor, this coffee maker can serve coffee for many at the same time. Not just the quality, but the quantity of a device is also your concern when you really intend to spend on it.

But your wife is quite ultra modern and loves more gizmos of latest technology. Then a high tech coffee maker will add a flavor of love when you gift it to her. This device is best for filter coffees. Once you pour in the ingredients of making coffee, the high tech coffee maker brews it and with the help of a filtering device placed inside it, strains the coffee and the final product can be poured down in a jug for serving. You can call up friends and serve them with instant coffee with your high tech coffee maker.

Its not that plain taste of coffee you are fond of. Looking for that frothy caffeinated drink? Then dont buy a percolator or a high tech coffee maker. What would be best for you is an Espresso coffee maker. This coffee maker is a bit expensive but you know it is the matter of taste, flavor and love. Why then compromise and get into an Espresso coffee shop only in the weekends and spend exaggeratedly to quench your thirst? Have it in your kitchen and enjoy daily. That costs you low. Even entertaining your friends wont be burdensome.

Is it only you and your wife who want to enjoy this coffee session? Then dont go for the above cumbersome coffee makers. They are actually made to serve many at a time. Enjoy your privacy and make coffee on a stove top coffee maker, which can be brewed on the stove itself. Also no extra electric charges will add up in the bill at the end of the month. To make instant coffee for 2-4 people this coffee maker is superb. So what have you decided to buy to perfectly match with your wifes choice and your taste?
