How to choose a coffee maker
Single-serving or carafe brews
When you just want one cup, single-serving coffee appliances are fast, easy, and economical. The most common single-serve coffee brewers use disposable pods from Keurig or Nespresso. The pods typically contain one serving of coffee grounds so you can’t use your own coffee grinder.
You’ll find Keurig brand coffee makers and Nespresso coffee and espresso machines from Breville or De’Longhi — the two companies licensed by Nespresso for the U.S. market — at most major storefront and online merchants. Both brands have coffees available in a wide variety of flavors and types. Single-serve machines are also a great choice if you like to try many different flavors, one cup at a time, or if coffee drinkers in your home or office have varied preferences.
If you drink a lot of coffee or if everyone in your family or office drinks the same type of coffee, single-serve machines still have advantages in the lack of wasted coffee and easy cleanup. If everyone drinks the same brew or you’re not that thrilled by the amount of plastic and paper waste, a carafe-style coffee maker is a better choice.
Using carafe brewers costs less per cup than single-serve coffee machines, but that only holds if you drink every pot to the bottom. Depending on the design of the carafe brewer coffee basket and filter, cleanup can also be a bigger and messier chore than with single-serve machines.
Coffee, espresso, or multifunction coffee drink machines
As you’ll see in the deals in this roundup, you can buy coffee appliances for prices that range from under $50 to more than $500. It’s easy to get carried away with all the available features in coffee machines, especially the multifunction designs with precise control settings. If you’re considering fancy coffee machines, you should know espresso machines with lots of features are often complicated to use correctly and a bear to keep clean.
Unless you are experienced in preparing barista-grade brews, we suggest starting with an 8-cup to 12-cup basket-brew carafe style coffee maker for everyday use. With a relatively inexpensive basket brewer on hand for crowds and your usual coffee consumption, then it can be fun to venture into the world of espresso drinks. We suggest you start with a less complicated device, perhaps one of the Nespresso combination espresso and coffee machines that don’t require a semester’s class to operate but give you the ability to serve single shots and, with an attached or stand-alone milk frother, your favorite latte and cappuccino drinks.
