Lockdown sees coffee machine sales soar as Scots become a ‘nation of home baristas’


As cafes in Scotland’s level four regions face a three-week shutdown from this Friday, Scots are turning to sophisticated coffee machines for the taste of a latte at home.

In an effort to recreate coffeehouse favorites at home, Scots are buying coffee makers at an astonishing rate – and with Black Friday deals approaching, the numbers are only increasing.

AO.com reported sales of coffee machines increased by 412% after the announcement of the second confinement in England on November 5.

As large parts of Scotland now head for similar lockdown conditions, many people are expected to take advantage of Black Friday sales invest in a coffee machine.

The machines – including pod, bean, and espresso machines – allow latte lovers to create the coffee experience at home and add that extra touch to a standard morning coffee.

The three best-selling coffee machines of 2020 include the DeLonghi Bean to Cup coffee machine, The Barista Express by Sage and Jura E8 coffee bean machine.

Amanda Smart, coffee machine expert at AO.com, said: ‘Having a hot drink on the way to work or during a lunch break was a key part of the culture in Britain. The surge in coffee machine sales shows how much the pandemic has changed the way we consume coffee, as people find they can still get their favorite barista-style drinks at the push of a button in their own homes. ”
