If there’s one appliance every kitchen should have, it’s a solid coffee maker. According to the National Coffee Association, 7 in 10 Americans sip coffee every week — so even if you’re not into coffee, chances are someone in your family (or a guest) will appreciate having a way to get reliably delicious coffee at home. Enter our journey to find the best coffee makers and machines on the market.

Investing in a solid automatic coffee maker will give you the perfect cup of java every morning right in your own home — eliminating the need to fuss with a tea kettle, endure long drive-thru lines, or spend big on costly drinks at the cafe just for a caffeine fix. Plus, many of the best coffee makers come with a timer, so you can wake up to the energizing aroma of a fresh brew while you’re still under the covers. It’s like having a barista at your disposal, no tipping required.

These appliances can also make a great gift for a coffee lover if you happen to know of one... They come in a variety of sizes and colors to match any budget or kitchen style. Pair it with a new coffee grinder to upgrade a loved one’s (or your own!) entire morning routine. For an added bonus, you could also give them a milk frother so they can make lattes, cappuccinos, and other foamy drinks by hand.

Here are the 16 best coffee makers for a smooth, well-balanced cup of java on any budget.

The Best Coffee Makers

What to Consider


The best coffee machines can range from $20 well into four figures. While you don’t need to spend thousands of dollars to get the best coffee maker, having a decent budget can get you a much higher-quality cup, says Maciej Kasperowicz, director of coffee at Trade Coffee and one of just 400 Certified Q Graders (professionals skilled in sensory evaluation of green coffee) in the U.S.

“It’s worth spending into the triple digits to get a really high-quality drip coffee maker,” he says, adding that $150 to $250 is an ideal budget for most people. “Getting into that triple-digit range tends to get you coffee makers that have better results, like consistent brew temperature and solidity of build.”

With that being said, the most important factor in great coffee isn’t the machine you use to brew it—it’s the quality of the beans themselves, according to Kasperowicz.

“Starting with really good coffee beans is the most important thing. They should be high-quality, but also the kind of coffee you personally like,” he explains. “I enjoy super fruity and complex coffees, but plenty of people don’t like that, and that’s totally fine.”

Not sure where to start? We’ve got you covered with our recommendations for the best coffee brands.

Temperature Control

To brew excellent coffee, a coffee maker needs to provide “consistent temperature control,” advises Kasperowicz.

“It doesn’t mean that you can set the temperature, but that the machine will consistently deliver water that’s hot enough,” he explains.

While this is an important factor in choosing a coffee maker, it’s not usually easy to tell which ones provide a steady brewing temperature. Kasperowicz recommends looking for those who have received the “Certified Home Brewer” seal from the Specialty Coffee Association.

“They test certain things — brew temperature being key among them—to give a coffee maker the seal of approval,” he says.

Machine Capacity

The best coffee maker should brew enough in one pot to satisfy all the coffee drinkers in a household. While it doesn't hurt to get a machine with a large 12-cup capacity (as you can typically brew smaller amounts with them), you can scale down to a smaller 5-cup model if you don't think you'll ever have a reason to make a lot of coffee at once. If your family’s coffee habits are inconsistent from day to day, you might be better off with a pod-style coffee maker so you can brew one cup at a time as needed.

Some coffee makers also have the ability to brew a single cup from a pod, as well as a pot of drip coffee — so you’ve got options when it comes to finding a machine with a capacity that fits your needs.


Don’t want to deal with the trouble of making coffee when you’re still groggy in the morning? Get a programmable coffee maker with an automated timer. These are fairly simple to set up. You just have to add water and grounds to the machine the night before, set the timer for your desired brew time, and you can have fresh coffee waiting for you when you get up.

On-Demand Functionality

If you're familiar with Keurig or Nespresso machines, you probably know that they differ from normal coffee makers in the sense that they use pods that are pre-measured and pre-loaded with the appropriate amount of grounds. Pop one in, press a button, and these coffee machines deliver a single cup on demand.

This is useful if you like to drink a cup on your own schedule throughout the day. Regular, large-capacity coffee makers can be used this way too, but they're less convenient for spur-of-the-moment brewing. Pod-style machines can also be a little less messy since you don’t need to scoop coffee grounds and deal with filters, but they also produce a lot of waste from disposable plastic pods.

As convenient as coffee pod brewers are, they don’t usually brew quite as great coffee as an auto-drip machine, says Kasperowicz. “They often produce coffee that’s a little weak for my taste,” he notes. “The technology that makes pod brewers possible is super interesting to me, but I haven’t found any commercially available ones that I love. I’m open to the idea that someone can figure out a good way to do it, though!”

Insulated Pot Vs. Hot Plate

Many coffee makers are designed to keep your java warm for several hours, so you can go back for refills over the course of the morning. But how the machine keeps the coffee hot can make a big difference in the flavor.

“If you’re going to brew coffee you’re not going to drink right away, I generally prefer those with a thermal insulated carafe as opposed to ones with hot plates,” says Kasperowicz. “The hot plate runs the risk of burning the coffee that’s sitting on the bottom of the pot. And if some coffee gets on that hot plate, it gets really hard to clean.”

Still, some of our favorite coffee makers do rely on the hot plate to keep the java warm, so we recommend being mindful of just how long the pot stays on the burner.

Special Features

Some of the best coffee makers can brew certain styles of coffee like espresso, dispense hot water for tea, or allow you to choose the exact size of the brew with the push of a button. Some also have built-in grinders to give you freshly ground beans every day. Consider how important special features are for your needs as you shop around for a coffee maker.

Note: In this guide, we're primarily focusing on automatic coffee makers that use either ground coffee or pods to make each batch (although we also cover a semi-automatic pour-over machine, too!). While some of these feature-packed devices can also make espresso, we have an entirely separate guide for the best espresso makers, if that's your java of choice.

Choosing the best coffee machine ultimately comes down to your budget and personal preferences for putting your coffee-brewing on autopilot. If you want to be (mostly) hands-off until it's time to pour yourself that first cup of the day, these are the best coffee makers you can buy.

How We Selected

To find the best coffee makers for different needs and preferences, we conducted in-depth hands-on testing. We set the machines up ourselves, brewed coffee, and taste-tested samples from each pot (or pod). We also looked at whether the coffee makers had any notable features (like a built-in grinder or thermal insulated pot), or major drawbacks.

To round out our review, we evaluated more than 35 coffee makers that are popular with customers at major online stores, including Amazon, Wayfair, Walmart, and Home Depot. Our goal was to find the best coffee makers for a variety of households.

On this list, you’ll find 14-cup coffee makers that can automatically brew enough java for the whole family before anyone even gets out of bed. You can also shop for easy single-cup brewers that use pods for added convenience — perfect for a dorm, small apartment, or a household with just one coffee drinker. We strived to include great coffee makers at a variety of price points, so no matter what your budget is, you can find an option you can trust on this list.

And with that, here are the best coffee makers for 2024.

Enfinigy Glass Drip Coffee Maker

After testing many different coffee makers, I found that this Zwilling model stood out from the competition in several key ways, ultimately becoming my favorite of the bunch.

For one, it looked sharp on my countertop and didn’t take up a ton of space. The smooth black machine features a transparent water tank and control knob on the left side, and a brew basket, pot, and hot plate on the right. It’s delightfully unfussy, too.

The control knob allows you to toggle through its settings as easily as it is to scroll through apps on your phone. It has charming icons that indicate what you’re looking at and a pleasant glowing display.

But most importantly, this coffee maker is built to make a remarkable cup of Joe. It has a powerful shower head to completely saturate the ground beans, a corrosion-resistant stainless-steel boiler to keep brew water tasting crisp and fresh, and a blooming function that lets carbon dioxide escape from the coffee. The result? Smoother, richer coffee without a hint of sourness. No wonder this coffee maker has earned the top award from the Specialty Coffee Association.

While I wish this coffee maker had a built-in water filter and an insulated carafe, it ultimately beat out the competition for its consistently great-tasting coffee, high-quality build, and excellent aesthetics.

Anybody can wake up on the right side of the bed when they have this coffee maker to look forward to in the morning.

Programmable Coffee Maker

Between its attractive design, large 12-cup capacity, and convenient features, the Black + Decker 12-Cup Programmable Coffee Maker offers great value for its price. It has a large digital display and rubberized buttons that make it easy to check the time, set a timer, and toggle through programming options. It also comes in three neutral colors (black, gray, and white), so you can find a version that complements the design of your kitchen.

You’ll never have to guess how much water is in the reservoir — the coffee maker features a front-facing window with scale marks that lets you see how full it is. Senior Editor Summer Cartwright says that it "takes a minute to figure out how, exactly to use this machine," noting that the area in which you fill the water reservoir in the corner isn't abundantly clear. "But it's especially great for families to use when each member wakes up at different times, since it keeps the huge pot warm." She says it keeps coffee hot all day long and crafts up an especially strong cup compared to other models.

There’s also a “sneak-a-cup” feature that temporarily pauses the flow of coffee so you can grab a cup mid-brew without splashing coffee on the burner. And don’t worry about forgetting to shut it off. The coffee maker turns off automatically after 2 hours for added peace of mind.

While this coffee maker can be a little noisy while it’s brewing, its robust array of features and affordability still make it a great option if you’re looking for a daily java on a budget. You’ll also appreciate that its removable brew basket is safe to toss right in the dishwasher, making cleaning easy.

The Bruvi Brewer

If you’re as skeptical of pod brewers as I am, but would love the convenience of single-serve coffee on demand, you’ve got to check out the Bruvi Brewer. This next-level pod brewer makes a whopping seven different beverages, including hot coffee, espresso, americano, iced coffee, and cold brew.

Unlike other pod brewers I’ve tried, the Bruvi delivers coffee that actually tastes bold and fresh. Hot coffees are brewed before your eyes in seconds, while cold brew (a beverage that typically requires a long steeping time) is ready in 8 minutes — less time than you’ll spend waiting for your icy coffee in the drive-thru on a busy summer day. You can also adjust the settings to brew stronger or less acidic coffee.

While the coffee is delicious, the machine isn’t perfect. I found it tricky to set up — the machine wouldn’t register that I had filled the water tank, so it couldn’t run the initial cycle, and I wasted a couple of pods trying to get it going. It tends to splash a little coffee on the countertop as it’s brewing. And it only uses one type of pod (Bruvi’s proprietary B-Pods), which means you’ll be locked into that ecosystem if you invest in the coffee machine.

But its pros outweigh its cons by a long shot. The machine itself looks sophisticated with its touchscreen menu, cream colorway, wooden accents, and visible water tank. It has a built-in container for used B-Pods, which are designed to decompose in just a few years without leaving microplastics behind. And the versatility of the coffee options gives you lots of ways to get caffeinated, as both your tastes and the seasons change. This coffee machine is a winner in the pod space.

Some of our editors thought this machine didn't produce as bold of a cup as the Nespresso, so it's good to keep that in mind.

CoffeeTeam TS Digital Coffeemaker

This Capresso coffeemaker packs a lot of features into a relatively compact machine. I was surprised to see that this high-quality brewer (complete with a built-in grinder!) could squeeze inside the tight countertop space I typically use for my blender. It also looked sharp in my kitchen, thanks to its black and stainless steel design.

Setting it up was a breeze — all I needed to do was clip in the water filter (included with the machine) and run a brew cycle without beans to get it clean. I was then able to pour beans into the grinder (which holds enough beans for up to two pots of coffee), add my desired amount of water to the tank, and set it to grind and brew automatically the following morning.

As you can imagine, the coffee bean grinder is noisy, so you’ll want to set it to run at a time when everyone in your house is already awake. But the racket was worth it for the fresh, aromatic coffee that was ready to drink in about 10 minutes. The grinder holds enough beans for up to two full pots of coffee, so you’ll need to refill it about every other day. It also has five different coarseness levels, which you can adjust by twisting the outside of the grinder.

As someone who’s used to crafting really bold brews from my French press, I wished this coffee maker produced a stronger drink. Even at the boldest “aroma” setting, it still felt a little weak for my tastes, although it was definitely stronger than what you’d get at a run-of-the-mill diner. I was disappointed to see that the coffee maker failed to fully saturate my ground beans — there was always about a tablespoon still dry in the basket filter after the pot was full — so that might be why the coffee wasn’t as bold as I’d like. This felt wasteful to me.

With that being said, I still believe this is one of the best coffee makers out there because of its robust grinder, small footprint, and ability to keep coffee hot for hours. Its thermal pot is so well insulated, that you won’t even notice the fact that the coffee maker doesn’t have a hot plate.

FlexBrew Trio 2-Way Coffee Maker

You don’t have to choose between brewing a pot or making a single cup of Joe with the Hamilton Beach FlexBrew. This wonderful coffee machine does both. It’s a game-changer for couples who prefer different brands of coffee or want the option to have both regular and decaf coffee on demand.

You can program this model to brew a cup for you first thing in the morning, but keep in mind that this function can only be used with the carafe side. When we tested it, we were pleasantly surprised at how quickly it brewed a full pot of coffee — it went from start to finish in about 10 minutes. The full-pot side of the machine also comes with a warming plate that keeps fresh-brewed coffee steamy for up to 2 hours. We were impressed that the coffee still tasted fresh, hot, and (most importantly) not burned even after being on the burner for 90 minutes.

The single-serve side is compatible with pods like K-Cups, as well as a removable grounds basket that can brew up to 14 ounces of coffee from pre-ground beans. That’s just the right amount to fill up a travel mug for your commute. We loved that the coffee machine came with its own single-serve brewing basket and a reusable pod, both of which tucked neatly into the machine.

While this coffee maker is on the bulkier side, we think it’s worth it for the functionality and various brewing options. It’d be a great gift for a couple with different tastes in java, a big family, or even an Airbnb host who wants to give their guest a variety of ways to get their caffeine fix in the morning.

Automatic Pour Over Coffee Machine

Pour-over has been one of the trendiest coffee brewing methods at high-end cafes in recent years. But now, you can get the same robust, balanced pour-over coffee at home with the Tribest Shine Kitchen Co. Autopour. This clever machine eliminates the two biggest headaches of making pour-over coffee: the guesswork of figuring out the right ratio of coffee to water, as well as the manual labor of slowly pouring water over the grounds and waiting for it to filter before adding another splash.

I found this coffee maker to be among the easiest to use. Simply pop in 3 AA batteries, put a filter in the carafe basket, use the included scoop to measure the perfect amount of ground coffee (one scoop per cup), and nestle everything into place. Then, heat water in a tea kettle and pour it into the water reservoir.

Hit the “on” button and watch as the machine slowly spins the water reservoir around to let the water gently shower over the coffee grounds through three strategically placed drainage holes. The entire process took less than 5 minutes and the double-walled insulated carafe ensured the coffee was steamy when it was time to pour it into a mug.

The main downside with this coffee machine is that it only makes two small cups of coffee at a time, so while it would be a great gift for a young professional who’s on their own, it probably wouldn’t cut it for a large family. Regardless, you can expect consistently delicious pour-over coffee from this surprisingly simple machine.

Programmable Coffee Maker System

If you want a professional-quality coffee maker for your kitchen—and money is no object — you’d be hard-pressed to find an option better than this one from Wolf Gourmet. Yes, it’s expensive, but the appliance delivers tons of functionality, precision, and stylish aesthetics that could be worth it for a high-end kitchen, or if you’re looking for a gift that’s sure to impress.

Perhaps its most compelling feature is its Accu-Brew technology. It tells you exactly how much ground coffee you need for the amount and strength of coffee you want to brew.

Simply turn the distinctive red knobs to set your preferences and an integrated scale will weigh the grounds as you place them in the brew basket, letting you know when you’ve added the correct amount. It almost feels like doing a science experiment in your own kitchen. Whether you like mild coffee or something stronger, you can set your preferred brewing intensity using the five boldness settings on this machine.

The physical design of this coffee machine also offers a lot to love. It has a removable 50-ounce water reservoir you can take right to the sink to refill. It also has a front-load brew basket tucked within a smooth-glide drawer, which makes it easy to use even if the machine is tucked beneath a cabinet.

When it’s time to brew, the coffee maker will spray hot water evenly over the grounds to provide optimal flavor extraction, brewing up to 10 cups in under 7 minutes. The thermal stainless steel carafe keeps the coffee insulated and fresh-tasting long after it’s brewed. See for yourself by checking how long ago the coffee was made on the LCD display panel and pouring yourself a cup.

Brew Stainless Steel Coffee Maker

OXO's coffee machine has a slightly unique design: Its brew style mimics the pour-over coffee offered at fancy coffee shops, so the grounds are all thoroughly saturated from the rainmaker shower head, the water is heated to a precise temperature every time, and you can program it to start brewing at a specific time. Twist the dial to choose between brewing a single cup or an entire 9-cup carafe.

Speaking of the carafe, we love that this stainless steel vessel is double-walled to keep the coffee warm for several hours. Like most coffee makers with stainless steel carafes, there is no hot plate underneath the brewed coffee, but we think that’s a benefit for this machine — there’s no risk of burnt coffee whatsoever.

Cartwright adores this machine specifically for its thermal insulation, which keeps coffee tasting fresh all day long. "My mom wakes up a 5 a.m. and leaves the pot for when I get up, usually around 7 or 8. It's fresh every time, and stays that way for when I inevitably grab my second (or third) cup around 10 a.m.)" she says. "It's a fun machine to use, too. It feels like a science project — even though I assure you it's simple to get the hang of."

This is one of the best coffee machines to watch as well as pour from. You can watch the water reservoir drain in real time as the machine heats up and turns it into coffee. Between the coffee maker’s aesthetics and precision brewing, we’re not surprised that it’s one of the few that has earned the Certified Home Brewer seal of approval from the Specialty Coffee Association.

Brew Stainless Steel Coffee Maker


Programmable Coffee Maker

If you have low-hanging top cabinets, it can be tough to find a coffee maker that's convenient to use without pulling the whole thing out from underneath the cabinets.

Enter this front-filling coffee maker from Hamilton Beach. Its brew basket swings open for easy access to refill and clean the unit. Its internal water reservoir can also be filled just by flipping open a small flap on the front of the machine's top, and you can easily see how much water is in the machine through the window on the tank. It’s a smart design for anyone who’s tired of scooting their coffee maker out from under a cabinet every day.

Beyond that, this coffee maker offers the standard essential features like 1- to 4-cup brewing, two brewing strength choices, auto-pausing while mid-brew, a warming plate, and a 2-hour auto-shutoff. It also lets you know when it’s time to clean the machine on its digital display. As soon as you receive the reminder, simply run the self-cleaning cycle and you’re ready for your next pot of coffee.

Another thing we appreciate about this coffee maker is its built-in water filter. That all but guarantees you’ll get fresh-tasting coffee every time you run the machine. Just be sure to keep replacement filters on hand so you can change them regularly.

Nespresso Vertuo Evoluo Coffee Machine

If you're a Nespresso household, you'll naturally want the best model that’s compatible with these recyclable pods. This combination coffee/espresso machine from De'Longhi will keep your taste buds happy and your caffeine buzz strong each day.

This unit brews four different cups: two espresso (single or double) and two regular coffee sizes (5 or 8 ounces). It is only compatible with Nespresso's VertuoLine capsules, and the machine will scan each capsule to determine the optimal temperature, pressure, and brew time for that particular blend. It heats up in just 15 to 20 seconds.

Unfortunately, you can't use your own beans or any refillable pods with this machine, and the coffee capsules can get pricey if you’re using them every day, so keep that in mind as you budget for a coffee maker. On the upside, the machine comes with a starter kit of 12 Nespresso VertuoLine capsules. The bundle lets you make your first cup almost immediately after setting up the coffee maker.

Cartwright loves using her Nespresso machine during very early mornings. "It's great for a quick fix when your brain is still asleep and you can hardly move," she says. "It's fantastic at creating a solid cup of caffeine with minimal effort."

If convenience is your selling point, this machine is well worth the investment. It’s a high-end coffee maker that will look sharp on your counter — after all, it comes in five different colors, so you’re bound to find a version that matches your kitchen’s interior design. And since it holds up to 17 used capsules, you won’t need to empty it very often. It’s almost as hands-off as brewing coffee can get!

K-Classic Coffee Maker

If you need something with no frills and are OK with sacrificing a bit more counter space, this classic Keurig model is as straightforward as it gets. Just fill up the water reservoir, insert your K-Cup of choice, and select your mug size (6, 8, or 10 ounces). In just a minute, you'll have a hot cup of coffee.

Plus, this coffee maker can accommodate a variety of different-sized mugs, whether you’re using a standard coffee mug or a tall travel mug. Simply remove the drip tray when you need a little extra room for your vessel.

This unit is easy to use, easy to clean, and ideal for someone who isn’t too picky about their coffee. There's no brew strength or temperature adjustment, but its on-demand accessibility is perfect for those who need convenience above all else. To help conserve energy, this coffee maker turns off automatically after it’s been idle for 2 hours.

Another great feature is its large water reservoir. It can hold up to 48 ounces at one time, which is enough to brew up to 8 cups of coffee before you need to refill the machine.

There are hundreds of disposable K-Cups to choose from, so you should be able to find a pod you love. But if you’re dedicated to a particular type of bean (like locally roasted coffee), you can pop those grounds into the Keurig My K-Cup Reusable Filter. It’s compatible with this machine.

K-Classic Coffee Maker


Programmable Coffee Brewer

This is one of the best coffee makers in the mid-priced range that’s loaded with features. Using the control panel, you can set the Ninja brew timer, select a brewing style (classic or rich), set how long you want the hot plate to stay on, and choose how much coffee you want to brew — the full 12 cups, or a smaller batch of 1 to 4 cups.

It’s a great alternative to a pod brewer if you want a coffee maker that can make single servings of your favorite type of coffee or a full pot for your entire family to enjoy. It brews consistently hot coffee really fast. Expect a full 12-cup pot to be ready in about 6 minutes.

One added advantage of this coffee maker is its 60-ounce water reservoir. The tank can be removed, making it easy to take to the sink for a refill. Cleaning the coffee maker is fairly straightforward, too. You can place many of the removable parts right in the dishwasher. There’s also a “clean” button you can press to start the descaling process automatically. Don’t worry about the need to clean the hot plate very often. It doesn’t show drip marks, so it almost always looks clean.

Mini Brew Switch Coffee Maker

If your caffeine consumption is more on the minimal side, this small and affordable coffee maker from Mr. Coffee is one of the simplest to use.

It brews up to 5 cups of coffee exactly when you want it with just the flip of a switch. And after it's done brewing, its warming plate keeps the brew warm. We like that you can pause the brewing process to pour yourself a cup before the machine completes its cycle. We also appreciate the ergonomic carafe that makes it easy to pour coffee into a mug without dripping or splashing.

Unlike the other coffee makers that automatically shut off after a certain amount of time, this one does not, so you'll need to switch it off after you're done brewing. A kitchen timer could be a useful tool to avoid leaving the coffee maker on longer than necessary.

This is among the most compact drip coffee makers out there. Because of its petite size, it could slide right into a corner of a kitchenette in a studio apartment or make a great gift for a college student living in a dorm room. They’ll appreciate having access to ample caffeine to power them through late nights of studying. It makes enough coffee in a single pot for two roommates to share, too. And when it’s time for them to move to a new dorm or apartment, this small, lightweight machine is easy to take along to their new place.

Mini Brew Switch Coffee Maker


PerfecTemp Coffee Maker

Looking for the best coffee maker in terms of reliability? This Cuisinart model is a top choice for a lot of at-home coffee fanatics because of its simple, no-frills functionality. It comes with its own reusable gold-tone filter for easy brewing, eliminating the need to fumble around with disposable paper filters. If you want to switch from regular-strength coffee to a bold brew, simply tap the “bold” button on the control settings and let the magic happen. It couldn’t be easier.

That’s just one of several programmable functions included on this coffee maker, though. You can also customize brew-start and auto-off times, the number of cups (1 to 4 at a time, or the full 14-cup capacity), the temperature of the carafe, and whether you want a sound to play when your coffee is ready. You can even pause the machine while brewing to pour yourself a cup and avoid dripping coffee onto the warming plate. The unit includes its own reusable coffee filter and a charcoal water filter, which can help your coffee taste even fresher.

If you like your coffee the same way each and every day, this device will prove to be a reliable mainstay on your kitchen countertop. It would also make a great housewarming gift for new homeowners.

PerfecTemp Coffee Maker


Fully Automatic Coffee Machine

If some in your household prefer regular drip coffee while others prefer espresso, the Tchibo coffee maker provides common ground for everyone's caffeine preferences. The brand has been in the coffee business for 75 years, so you can trust it to create machines that have mastered the art of coffee brewing.

This premium machine only uses whole beans, and once loaded into the hopper, they are kept sealed for freshness until the second they're ground. This adds a whole other layer of aromatic richness to your standard cup. Just select the size and the strength of your coffee via the touch panel buttons, and in about 3 minutes, you’ll have a freshly brewed cup waiting for you.

Although it's pretty expensive and a little on the noisy side, we love the Tchibo Single Serve Coffee Maker for how easy it is for multiple drinkers to brew to their liking whenever they want a cup.

"Whether you're a brewing-impaired busy mom like me, or you're just looking for a yummy single-serve, waste-free coffee maker, the Tchibo won't disappoint," wrote Senior Editor Cat Bowen in her review.

We also think this is one of the easiest coffee makers to clean. It has an automatic descaling function and a magnetic drip tray you can swiftly remove and clean, ensuring that your coffee always tastes great. With a slim, compact design, it could easily slide into a nook on your kitchen countertop.

Another benefit: This coffee maker comes bundled with your choice of one, two, or even three bags of beans. The entire package makes a great gift for newlyweds that they can start using on day 1 as a married couple.

K-Mini Coffee Maker

People seem to either love or hate Keurig coffee makers, but if you happen to only drink one small cup of coffee per day (or just need a machine that won’t take up too much space on the countertop), this coffee maker could be your new best friend.

This machine takes up the smallest footprint of any of the devices in this guide and it’s less than 5 pounds. It even has dedicated cord storage to keep your countertop clutter free. It could be great for a dorm room, vacation rental, home office, or tiny kitchen. Plus, it comes in six fun colors.

This Keurig single-serve coffee maker runs strictly on K-Cups. While convenient, these pods can be pricey to use every day and add a lot of waste to the landfill. Fortunately, you can fill reusable ones with your own grounds if you want to go the eco-friendlier route and potentially reap some savings. These also give you the option to brew single-cup batches of really high-quality beans of your favorite coffee. You can brew between 6 and 12 ounces at a time.

Regardless of whether you go with disposable or reusable K-Cups, you’ll find this coffee maker easy to operate. The machine has just one button on the top that you can use to power the device once your K-Cup is loaded (or not, if you prefer to use it to make hot water for tea).

One caveat: This small unit holds only 12 ounces of water, and it will brew using only the amount of water that's in the tank. This means that you'll be refilling it just about every time you brew another mug.
