“It is inhumane, in my opinion, to force people who have a genuine medical need for coffee to wait in line behind people who… view it as some kind of recreational activity.” – Dave Barry

Are you a handyman or someone who enjoys renovating your house without hiring professional contractors? Secondly, do you enjoy quality coffee first thing in the morning? And, thirdly, are you perhaps wondering what DIY tips and the espresso maker have to do with each other? Essentially, the ability to drink a fresh cup of coffee first thing in the morning has become a requirement for most citizens of the world.  And, as the quotation by Dave Barry mentioned above notes, it is no fun standing in long queues at your favorite coffee shop on your way to work each morning.

Tips on adding a new espresso machine to your revamped kitchen

Therefore, it is reasonable to conclude that purchasing your coffee machine and installing it in your kitchen is a good idea. It will solve the challenge of having to wait in long queues, desperate for your morning elixir.

Tips on how to re-arrange your kitchen to fit an espresso machine into your kitchen

Thus, the question that should be asked and answered is how to install a coffee machine in your kitchen. By way of answering this question, here are several tips to help you:

Plan, plan, plan

One of the best times to install an espresso maker in your kitchen is when you are revamping the kitchen. Therefore, it is vital to add the machine to the plans before you start the work. This will ensure that the coffee maker’s location will be aesthetically pleasing with optimal functioning.  The consequence of neglecting to draw up plans for your new kitchen before you start the remodeling work can lead to disastrous consequences and a waste of money.

Purchase a quality product

While it is understandable that budgetary constraints need to be considered, it is equally important to purchase the best quality espresso machine that fits into your budget.


The general rule is that cost equates to quality which in turn equals longevity with the reduced risk of malfunctions or breakages.  It must be stated at this juncture that this rule is only applicable up to a certain point. After this point, the cost of the espresso machine’s brand adds to the cost. Therefore, as mentioned above, it’s vital to balance the cost, machine-type, and budget.

Consider hiring an installation expert

While the point and goal of this article are to discuss how to install an espresso maker yourself during a kitchen revamp, it’s a good idea to consider contracting an expert to install your new coffee machine. This point is especially valid for machines that need water pipes and electric cabling installed from their point of source to where your machine will be situated. On the other hand, if it’s a simple espresso maker without the need for piped water and there is a plug point close by, it is a good idea to situate it in your new kitchen yourself.

Final thoughts

The first cup of coffee in the morning has become an institution and part of the postmodern lifestyle. And, for many, the quality of the beverage sets the tone of the day. Therefore, in conclusion, it makes sense to ensure that you wake up to a great coffee every day of the week.
