We love our coffee. And today, Good Housekeeping just announced their picks for the best coffee machines according to their experts. Looking for a new machine to make your morning java read on…
These top drip coffee makers will fuel your day:
Top Lab Pick: Braun BrewSense Drip Coffee Maker
Best Value: Black + Decker Coffee Maker
Best Taste: Cuisinart Pour Over Coffee Brewer
GH Seal Star: Krups Savoy Coffee Maker
Fastest: Technivorm Moccamaster Coffee Brewer
Easiest: Bonavita One-Touch Coffee Maker
Customized: Breville Precision Brewer
Versatile: Ninja Hot and Cold Brewed System
The well-designed Braun BrewSense came closer to the gold standard for water brewing temperature than almost any other drip coffee maker in our testing, and delivered a rich, bold, hot cup of coffee. It has settings to program the coffee to brew ahead of time and you can adjust the brew strength and the temperature of the warming plate. It’s also available in black.
This Black & Decker 12-cup coffee maker proves you don’t need to spend a fortune to make an excellent cup of coffee at home. It was one of the few in our test that brewed coffee hot and kept it that way for a full two hours. It was also was one of the most user-friendly models we tested.
If you’re particular about how your coffee tastes, you’ll want the Cuisinart Pour Over brewer. This eight-cup model lets you adjust the temperature and strength of your coffee — and thanks to the stainless exterior, glass carafe, and digital touchpad controls, it’ll add a sleek, modern touch to your kitchen counter.
This Good Housekeeping Seal-holder features an all-black body, a 12-cup glass carafe, a reusable filter and a backlit LCD screen with digital touchpad controls. You can program the clock to automatically brew coffee in the morning. It’ll make a hot pot very quickly, but drink up — the keep warm feature didn’t keep the coffee as warm as other models in our tests.
The high-end Technivorm MoccaMaster got top scores for making coffee super fast in our tests. It has a tank that’s very easy to fill with clearly defined measurement markings, plus it’s a breeze to clean and operate the controls and comes in 17 (!) fun colors.
If you gravitate toward appliances with a bare-bones, fuss-free design, you’ll appreciate the single switch of the Bonavita One-Touch. It’ll make up to eight cups of deliciously balanced java fast. Just note that the brew basket rests awkwardly on top of the carafe, so you’ll have to remember to remove it before you start sipping.
Breville’s 12-cup Precision Brewer is stacked with features that allow you to fully customize your coffee, like adjustable brew temperature, bloom time, strength and more. It also has settings for making cold brew, iced coffee, or the Specialty Coffee Association’s standard Golden Cup. It’s beautifully designed thanks to its sleek brushed stainless steel exterior and LED-lit digital display.
If you love a cup of cold brew coffee just as much as you love a mug of hot java or tea, Ninja’s new system is for you. It makes a seemingly endless array of beverages: In addition to brewing coffee, tea, iced coffee, andcold brew, you can select from six sizes (from single-serve to a full carafe) and control the strength of your drink. Our favorite part of this machine is the connected milk frother that lets you make creamy cappuccinos, flat whites, and more without having to add any extra gadgets to your counter top.
