Finding a coffee machine you really love can often be a difficult and tiring process. There are a lot of machines out there that look good on the surface, but when you actually try them, they end up making terrible coffee that makes you wish you never had tastebuds.
I know this all too well, and that’s why I’ve been on the hunt for my next coffee machine, which leads me to my Vimukun coffee maker review.
Read on as I tell you all the benefits and drawbacks of this machine and if I recommend it.
Let’s get started.
The biggest advantage that this particular coffee maker offers is its 3-in-1 capability. I could use K-cups, coffee pods, or coffee grounds to make my coffee with this machine.
This is one thing that I quite enjoyed, and it’s something that you don’t see with the majority of coffee machines.
When I was in a rush to make my coffee, I could just use the K-cup or coffee pod feature, and when I had time to make it and savor the taste, I could use coffee grounds, so I loved the flexibility this machine offers.
I enjoyed the taste of the coffee this machine created, and the main reason for this is to do with the 19-bar pressure pump.
Because of this, it made almost professional-grade espresso, and I ended up enjoying the coffee made from this machine better than some dedicated espresso machines I’ve tried.
There were also three modes for Nespresso pods to choose from (Ristretto, Espresso, and Lungo), so I could choose depending on which coffee I was making, which added to the great taste.
One of the more unique things it offers is that it can produce great fresh coffee in just one minute.
It has an incredibly fast brewing time, all while being at the optimal brewing temperature of 185°F, so no matter how quickly it took, it would still produce similar tasting, delicious espresso without fail.
Design of the Machine
The design of this machine is not going to set the world on fire, but it’s not bad looking at all. The material is plastic; however, it doesn’t look or feel flimsy or cheap at all.
Another benefit is that it is very easy to use thanks to the buttons listed at the top of the machine.
With three different coffee strength options, depending on whether you use K-Cups/Nespresso or coffee grounds, I was able to customize each drink to my choosing.
There’s also a boost option, where I was able to mix K-cups with Nespresso capsules for a more enhanced flavor, which I enjoyed and hadn’t seen anywhere else apart from this machine.
It also told me whenever there was a water shortage, which was another great design choice.
The water tank is also 57oz, which means that I didn’t need to refill as much as I do with other machines.
This also meant that the pod coffee maker for K-Cups was able to brew over five cups of coffee at once, making it ideal for when my friends came over for a coffee.
Easy to Clean and Maintain
This coffee maker has a removable drip tray and water tank which makes cleaning and maintaining these parts extremely easy.
On top of this, the cleaning function ensured that my machine continued to stay clean, leaving no leftover coffee residue, all with very little effort from me.

Wrapping Up My Vimukun Coffee Maker Review
I thought that this machine was quite good, all things considered, especially when it comes to value for money.
From the 3-in-1 capabilities to the easy cleaning, this is one I really recommend if you are in a rush often and don’t have time to spend ages cleaning and making a coffee as you do with regular espresso machines.
There are small disadvantages, such as the design and the fact that there is no milk frother, but overall, I would recommend this one due to the advantages far outweighing the negatives.
All in all, I hope you got everything you needed from my Vimukun coffee maker review. If you’re looking for a more standard espresso machine, feel free to check out the Amzchef.
