Who doesn't like to have options? Choices make life interesting. Cars come with standard, automatic, even tiptronic transmissions. You can sign up for countless social networking sites, starting with Facebook and Twitter, with more alternatives being developed on a daily basis. In the same spirit, we're expanding your java options with some great machines, thanks to three of the biggest names in coffee: Delonghi, Bosch, and Jura-Capresso.

DeLonghi Gran Dama 6700DeLonghi Gran Dama 6700
Italian maker Delonghi, unveiled their latest addition to its wildly popular Gran Dama series. The Delonghi Gran Dama 6700 is everything a super-automatic fan could wish for. The integrated milk container is a dream come true, connecting to a steam tube to make frothed milk; it can also be removed and stored in the fridge. My favorite thing about the Gran Dama 6700 its long/drip coffee function, which will grind beans, extract half a cup of coffee, discard the grinds and start the process again with a second set of beans to achieve a full cup of tasty java. The fully equipped DeLonghi 6700 comes with four different drink options, five brew strength settings, three brew temp settings, seven language options, and more—making it one of the most exciting machines in its price range.

Bosch Tassimo Suprema
Another new face, the Bosch Tassimo Suprema has become a favorite with the Whole Latte Love team. Unlike the Bosch Tassimo, the Suprema comes equipped with the Mavea water filtration system to deliver great tasting beverages without requiring users to use pre-filtered water. For the many Tassimo fanatics out there, the single-serve T-Discs—consisting of 13 different brands, capable of making more than 40 unique brews—are the best part of owning a Tassimo. The Suprema is one of the most convenient machines on the market, letting users make single-serve beverages on demand. Best of all, the Suprema is a cinch to clean; it comes with a re-useable cleaning disc, two Mavea water filters, and dishwasher safe parts to help you keep the machine running in tip-top shape.

Jura-Capresso CafeJura-Capresso Café Pump Espresso & Cappuccino Machine
Rounding out the new releases is the Jura-Capresso Café Pump Espresso & Cappuccino Machine—a curiously long name for such a compact, space saving design. One of the most affordable home brewing options around, this Jura-Capresso model comes equipped with Thermoblock technology, providing 16 bars of pressure for optimal extractions. With its two portafilter spouts, you have the option of making one or two shots of espresso for that morning cup of Joe. The Café's integrated metal cup warmer, storage compartment, and swivel frother make this a well-equipped option for the home barista on a budget.

Whether you're looking for an economic, convenient, and/or fully-loaded machine, our new line-up has something for everyone. So, go ahead, take a sneak peak and bring home your perfect brew!
