Top 10 of the Best Coffee Makers
Choosing the best coffee maker can be a fairly complicated process. There are an incredible range of different coffee makers on the market these days, so how do you choose the coffee maker that is right for you?
There are a few key factors that will influence your decision, including: Your budget; the style of coffee that you like to drink; and the volume of coffee that your coffee maker needs to produce.
In this article we share with you a few of our current favourites which help you choose which is the best coffee maker for you.
What are the best budget coffee makers?
We love the Mr Coffee 12-Cup Coffeemaker. Depending on where you purchase you can get your hands on this model for around $35. This style of coffee maker delivers you drip filter or brewed coffee. One of the great features is that even while the coffee maker is brewing, you can pause the machine so that you can pour a cup without getting coffee spilt everywhere. A great safety feature on this model is that it will shut off after two hours, so you never have to spend the day at work wondering whether you remembered to turn off the coffee maker.
Another option to consider is the Black & Decker Brew-n-Go. This is ideal if you are living by yourself as the coffeemaker brews directly into a stainless steel travel mug that you can then take with you as you head off to work.
What are the best coffee makers for the office?
When you are buying a coffee maker for the office you are going to need something that can produce a lot of coffee quickly and you will also need something that is fairly robust.
Our favourite coffee maker for the office is the Bonavita BV1800 Coffee Maker. One of the best features of this machine is that it comes equipped with a thermal carafe which is perfect for filling up and taking to meetings. It’s also got a really fast brew time (around five minutes) so you are not wasting time, standing around waiting for the coffee.
Another option to consider is the BUNN BXW Velocity - brews super-quick in just three minutes, the secret is its internal hot water tank.
What are the best high end coffee makers?
If you are serious about your coffee, and you have a reasonable budget to play with, then you should take a look at the Cuisinart Grind-and-Brew. As the name suggests, this coffee maker has an inbuilt coffee grinder so that you can ensure that your morning cup of coffee is made with the freshest coffee possible. There is nothing quite like waking up to the smell of freshly ground coffee, and this machine can be programmed up to twenty four hours in advance to make sure that there is a fresh pot of coffee waiting for you exactly when you need it.
Another option is the Keurig Platinum Brewing System - this uses single cup brewing sachets so you minimise waste while always ensuring you have the perfect cup of coffee.
For many of us coffee has become an intrinsic part of our daily routines. Having a coffee maker on hand may have the downside of increasing your intake of caffeine but if you choose the right coffee maker at least you’ll ensure that you are always drinking good coffee.
