If you're after a lean, green coffee machine, you can't go far wrong with Sanremo's Verde. It's so dedicated to the idea of coffee waste that it even incorporates it into its design: the cover panels are made from recycled coffee grounds mixed with 100% natural resin, while the steam knobs and filter-holder handles are crafted from recycled wooden pallets.

Want more? Go on then: there's also an energy-saving system inside that allows for up to 40% energy reduction compared with other machines, and a control unit that ensures thermal stability, too. So you'll know your morning cup is setting a pretty good precedent for the future of home coffee making. Which is a pretty good thing, in our opinion.
