4 Best Coffee Makers for Home


Oh Coffee, I can’t espresso how much you bean to me!

Before we begin, is this you every morning? Your day does not officially begin until you’re surrounded by the aroma of freshly brewed coffee beans. Whether you sleepwalk to your coffee machine and turn it on with your eyes closed, or you incoherently ramble your order at your go-to coffee shop, the feeling is the same. You are not yourself until you get that bitter-sweet taste in your mouth.

It might be a pot of steaming, sugar-free, black coffee that shakes you up or a grande macchiato to get you going, or even perhaps the latest trend of Nitrogen Cold Brew for that extra kick.

Whatever your preference, we can bet you have considered getting a coffee maker for your home, that’s if you don’t already have one. Unless, of course, you fancy a sugar-free, non-fat, soy vanilla latte with an extra shot of espresso and 2 pumps of caramel, then we suggest you keep supporting your barista!

Maybe your calculations for your morning take-out coffee are becoming too much on the budget and it’s time to make a change. Picking the best coffee maker for your favorite brew is not as simple as it sounds, and you do not want to get stuck with a machine you hate. There are certain things to consider before picking out your coffee maker and we’re here to outline that for you!

4 Best Coffee Makers for Home

What Makes a Great Coffee Maker?

Coffee Capacity

You might be the person who prefers one cup in the morning to jog your memory. A single- cup coffee maker would be the best option. On the other hand, if your family enjoys a coffee bonding session, then you might want to consider a drip coffee maker that produces 10 to 12 cups. Size matters on this one.

Capabilities for Different Types of Coffee

Are you picky about your coffee? Does a solid mug sort you out or do you revel in an espresso shot or cappuccino? These drinks involve two different coffee makers and depending on your budget, you might opt to get one or the other. There are hybrid machines available that have both options.

Fun Fact: Beethoven was such a devoted coffee lover that he’d count 60 beans per cup before making his brew. Talk about exact measurements!

Counter Space Usage

It would be such a waste to get a grande coffee maker, and then realize that you cannot refill your coffee beans because the lid doesn’t have enough clearance from the cupboards. Sometimes it might be too big to fit close to a power outlet. It is better to plan ahead and visualize your Kitchen counter space, because a coffee machine in the living room is just bad bragging.

Convenience Factor

Do you have the time to stand in front of the coffee maker and take in all the scents as your coffee brews, or do you want to wake up and find your coffee ready? A programmable, electric coffee maker would work best for the get-up-and-go coffee lover. On the other hand, if you love your coffee ritual, a French Press might work better for you. A Pod machine is ideal if the style of coffee you’re having depends on your mood.

Budget for Coffee Makers

Upfront and long term costs are important to consider before getting the best coffee maker for your home. Will the cost of buying pods, filters or exotic coffee beans affect your budget down the line? In the same way that you must be able to fuel a V8 guzzler, your coffee maker has to be affordable 6 months after you purchase it.

Now that you have an idea of what you are looking for, here are some of our top choices of coffee makers and their features for your home to help with your decision.
