№2 – Cuisinart DCC-1200PRC 12-Cup Replacement Glass Carafe, Black

Ninja Coffee Bar Brewer
The Ninja Coffee Bar coffee maker gives you many opportunities to try new combinations, allowing you to remix your favorite coffee concoctions right at your countertop.
An auto-IQ, one-touch intelligence feature lets you pick the size, brew, as well as the right amount of water during the extraction process, regardless of how much water you poured into the reservoir. Its brewing process is designed to deliver richer tasting coffee, even giving you the choice of different richness levels to placate your palate.
The “Rich Brew” option imparts a deeper, more intense taste that mixes particularly well with milk or flavored cream. You can also recreate your favorite iced coffee with the machine increasing the concentration of the coffee to compensate for any melting ice.
Other coffee makers do not have this feature, creating a cup of iced coffee that may taste good for the first couple of minutes before the ice starts to melt and affect taste. It’s not a problem with the Ninja Coffee Bar Brewer Coffee maker.
Something akin to espresso, the specialty drink will give you coffee-house style and a layered beverage without all the expensive equipment.
The Cuisinart DCC-3200 is a programmable coffee maker with cutting edge technology that will produce 1cups of your favorite brew. You can use its regular or bold feature to customize the profile of your coffee, as well as the option to set the brew time up to 2hours ahead of time.
A backlit LCD screen is easy to read on the Cuisinart coffee maker, with indicator lights that will signal when a brew is done as well as inform you when it is time to decalcify the machine.
The Cuisinart DCC-3200 may be small, but it can reach the optimal temperatures of 20degrees Fahrenheit in under six minutes, which is the industry standard for the best extraction.
This coffee maker is one of those kitchen accessories that makes sense in any kitchen– it doesn’t have the advanced technologies that you may be looking for, but for those who only want to enjoy a delicious cup of coffee, Cuisinart DCC-3200 will that job very well.
This 12-cup coffee maker allows you to brew hot or iced coffee in a truly beautiful machine. Unique designs and features include a convenient ice basket and measure lines. The coffee maker can produce 1cups of traditional hot coffee or six cups of an iced beverage.
A warming plate keeps your coffee heated to your preferred temperature. Other coffee makers from a similar price point will keep your coffee warm, but at a temperature that you cannot customize. This home coffee maker recognizes that sometimes you want your coffee to stay warm or even cool, with a high, medium, low, and off option.
A 24-hour programmable timer also allows you to set the coffee to start brewing at a certain time. No worries as to when you need to clean or decalcify your coffee maker – indicators will alert you when it is time for you to clean the system.
It’s a vocal machine, with alert beeps informing you when the coffee is made and when it needs a cleaning. Thankfully, warning beeps can be muted. All surfaces of the Zojirushi EC-YGC120 is BPA-free.
Hot water interacts with the flavor of the coffee, even after it has processed through the ground coffee. The Zojirushi EC-YGC120 tempers this by flash chilling it to lock the flavor. This will allow the flavor of the coffee to stay true for longer within the carafe.
Hamilton Beach 49980A
Hamilton Beach 49980A is made for occasional drinkers and caffeine aficionados alike, with the system fixed with all of the latest programs while still being relatively affordable. This low maintenance coffee maker can brew a basic cup of coffee or a premium roast in minutes, with the stainless steel chassis providing a single serving or 1cups for a larger party.
Hamilton Beach 49980A is uniquely designed to have two separate departments, with one water tank designed for single-serve and an auxiliary tank for multiple cups.
A delayed option lets you have a cup of coffee at the ready in the morning. No worries if you’re in a rush in the morning – the machine will automatically shut itself off within two hours.
Chemex Glass Coffee Maker
The Chemex was invented by a chemist in the 1940s to create the best possible cup of coffee – it’s incredibly simple, with a classic hourglass design, no electricity needed, and only uses materials that impart no additional flavors. It takes a few minutes to brew, but it makes outstanding coffee with no fines, great taste, and no metallic flavors that you might get from a French press or other methods.
First things first, the Chemex looks great. It has an old-time look and feel with hourglass curves – the handblown range is really beautiful and will look great on your worktop or shelves. Of course, glass comes with some drawbacks, such as fragility. It’s likely you’ll be moving your Chemex around before and after use so you do need to be slightly more careful than with other items in this list. It’s not truly portable, in that you can’t throw it in a bag to take to work with you but it’s definitely not as cumbersome (or ridiculous) as taking your coffee machine from place to place on a regular basis.
You will need other coffee gadgets if you’re using a Chemex – namely, a good coffee grinder, a scale if you’d like to get the coffee:water ratios just right, and a good kettle with a gooseneck for better pouring. You’ll also need to replace the filters as you use them, and will need to buy Chemex bonded filters to make sure that they don’t fall apart.
It’s great for people who want a lo-tech solution to their coffee and don’t mind taking the time to figure out the best way to get their coffee maker to work. It does take more fine-tuning than some other methods, but many, many coffee lovers have chosen the Chemex and not turned back.
However, if you want a fairly hands-off method or you want an all-in-one where you don’t need additional bits and pieces to get your morning cup of coffee, this is not the solution for you. ✓ Offers several coffee types ✓ Beautiful ✓ Good filtration ✓ Simple ✗ Takes some time to learn to use
Nespresso VertuoLine Coffee and Espresso Maker
If you want simplicity in input rather than design, Nespresso is a great choice. You use coffee capsules rather than having to grind coffee yourself or even pour in beans. It offers one-touch brewing so you get your coffee or expresso with the minimum of fuss and the capsules even come in single-cup sizes so it truly is a single serve coffee maker.
Capsule coffee makers have received criticism from people who see it as wasteful or uneco-friendly. Nespresso do offer a recycling service for the capsules so you can reduce your environmental impact. That said, it depends on your own personal views and attitudes – for some, there is still too much packaging used, while others might like to use their coffee grounds for composting or in the garden.
Eco-credentials aside, this machine makes excellent coffee. If you want to adjust each aspect of your drink or buy coffee from various sources, this coffee maker may not be for you. But if you just want a fuss-free coffee with minimal input and excellent taste, the Nespresso should definitely be a contender. ✓ Easy to use ✓ Very portable ✓ Affordable ✓ Completely manual ✗ Need to buy additional items ✗ May take some physical effort to use
Aerobie AeroPress Coffee Maker
Given how little the Aerobie Aeropress costs and the fact that it’s made entirely from plastics, you may be surprised just how many coffee lovers have embraced it as their default way of making coffee. That’s because the coffee quality is genuinely excellent and you have the added bonus of being able to throw it in a bag to take to work, your boyfriend’s/girlfriend’s house (without looking too weird), or even camping or on holiday.
This is probably the most utilitarian coffee maker on this list – it doesn’t look pretty and the form is entirely about function and nothing else. But if you’re a coffee lover, at least try it once. Given the price, there really aren’t many reasons not to.
Like with some other coffee makers on this list, you will need to buy a grinder and use a kettle. This, however, is one of the few true single serve coffee makers in that it really does just make one cup at a time.
It’s essentially a giant coffee syringe that you can use to make espresso-type coffee (not necessarily true espresso which needs closer to bars than the 2-you get from the AeroPress) or drip-brewed coffee. It’s easy to clean but whether or not it’s easy to use does depend a little on your upper body strength. You do need to press the plunger down, and if you don’t have a good grip or you’ve skipped the gym, it may take a bit more effort than you want first thing in the morning.
Now onto the plastic – it is made from different plastic types and is BPA-free. It’s not a very attractive material, and to be honest it’s not a very attractive coffee maker, but glass would not be anywhere near as portable and metal has it’s own taste issues for some people. Plastic is easy to make, easy to travel with, and easy to clean. The resulting coffee is as good as what you get out of a most coffee machines – you can control the strength, and it’s definitely flavorsome.
If you love coffee, give the Aeropress a chance. It’s not a big investment but it can improve the quality of your coffee at home, in the office, and on the road. Very free coffee makers can offer so much and require so little. ✓ Portable ✓ Completely manual ✓ Streamlined design ✓ All in one package ✓ No need to clean before packing ✓ Real espresso ✗ Need to buy additional items
MiniPresso GR Espresso Maker
If you’re looking for a good shot of espresso while you’re on the go, the MiniPresso is an excellent choice. It is specifically made to offer espresso and produces around bar pressure so definitely has the potential to make a true espresso – even at the top of a mountain. It has a mini coffee scoop, water chamber, and coffee basket, and lets you apply pressure manually.
The design looks like a small thermos and generally looks like something you could comfortably toss into a bag. It closes up well even after use so you don’t need to worry about dripping coffee or getting grounds on your things, which is one of the major benefits of this design when it comes to coffee on the go – you don’t need to clean it before you move on.
The flavor isn’t quite what you’d get from a quality, standard espresso machine, but considering the price and size of this machine, it’s very close. It’s a great choice for anybody who wants good espresso while travelling or even has a small kitchen without enough room for a full espresso machine. The design is intended for travel, and the all in one package means you won’t need to bring anything else with you if you just want a shot of espresso wherever you are.
It’s great for tiny kitchens or people on the move, but if you have the room for a larger coffee maker or you specifically want fantastic espresso without as many worries about price or size, there are other options for you. ✓ Portable ✓ Attractive design ✓ Solid build quality ✓ Easy to clean ✓ Real espresso ✓ Simple to use ✗ Pumping requires strength ✗ Need to buy additional items ✗ More expensive than other handheld options
Handpresso Wild Hybrid
When it comes to portability, the main contender for the MiniPresso is the Handpresso Wild Hybrid – it isn’t quite as streamlined, but does have slightly better build quality and only has parts so there’s less to keep track of. It is slightly larger, so many not be suitable for trips where you have very restricted space, but it does offer higher pressure and slightly better coffee. The pumping mechanism means that it can produce up to 1bar pressure, more than enough to make a true espresso wherever you are.
The build quality comes at a higher price, but you can see how much pressure you’ve built and the consensus here is that the Handpresso offers better tasting coffee than the MiniPresso. The choice between the two largely comes down to size, budget, and of course personal preference. While the materials on the Handpresso are thicker, the design isn’t quite as streamlined or convenient as other handheld coffee makers in this list.
If you’re a stickler for true espresso and want something that you can put in a drawer or take with you on a camping trip, this is an excellent choice. If you have extremely little space and need to pack more efficiencly, the MiniPresso is probably the better bet when it comes to handheld espresso makers.
If you do have kitchen space for a machine or less portable maker, it’s typically best to buy one since there are more options available and the design has been based more around producing the best coffee in the most convenient way, rather than having to consider packing and durability. ✓ Easy to use ✓ Easy to clean ✓ Can use ground coffee as well as K-cups ✓ Automated ✗ No descaling feature ✗ Difficult to recycle K-cups
Keurigs are the most popular type of pod coffee maker – they’re convenient, easy to use, and generally offer good coffee the minimal fuss. If you’d like a simple, single serve coffee machine the Keurig has got it down to a fine science and does not require you to know your grinds, understand the physics of espresso, or generally spend time fine-tuning your requirements.
Previously, Keurigs did get some criticism from coffee lovers for only being able to use the K-cups – now you can use ground coffee as thanks to the My K-Cup Reusable Coffee Filter. This opens up your options if you’d like to buy coffee from your local roaster or via a subscription, rather than having to buy specific K-Cups.
However, K-cups are quite difficult to recycle. While there are options available, like Recycle a Cup, you’ll need to cut and separate the cups into plastic, aluminum, and coffee grounds. You can use the coffee grounds if you separate the cup into its constituent parts, and then recycle each part separately, but it’s definitely not as easy as recycling Nespresso pods or simply putting your coffee grounds in the compost.
This is an excellent machine if you want ease of use and good coffee without the effort or in-depth knowledge. There’s a good reason why Keurigs and pod coffee makers are some of the most popular coffee machines in the US. ✓ Designed for travel cups ✓ Affordable ✓ Easy to use ✓ Easy to clean ✓ Compact ✗ Variable coffee quality ✗ Limited options
Hamilton Beach Single Scoop Coffee Maker
If you tend to drink your coffee on the go, it can be difficult finding a coffee maker that will work with a tall travel mug. That’s precisely what the Hamilton Beach Coffee Maker has been designed for. It’s a simple, compact machine that doesn’t necessarily have the bells and whistles other machines do, but it will produce decent coffee if you make a few tweaks to your process. One of the main complaints about the Hamilton Beach is that it makes weak coffee, but you can easily improve the flavor you get out of it by tamping your grounds properly. You can also improve the coffee your machine makes by soaking your grounds briefly before you brew to get the most taste out of them.
Once you have found work-arounds to the main flaws, this is actually a very useful and intelligently-designed machine. You can easily take it apart, clean it, and it will last a while. It’s also considerably cheaper per cup than Keurig or Nespresso, so you will be saving money both when you buy the machine and while using it.
It has an attractive design but it still has a small footprint in your kitchen. The biggest issue with is the risk of brewing weak coffee or having a plasticy flavor, but you can overcome this by running the machine a few times and making sure that you follow some basic processes to get the most out of your grounds. It’s not as easy to use as Keurig when it comes to consistency, but you can still use it to make a good cup of coffee.
It’s probably not a machine for purists or very serious coffee lovers, since the actual results may not live up to high standards, but if you just like a decent cup of coffee in the morning and want to cut down on how much you spend at the local coffee shop, this is definitely a reasonable solution. ✓ Easy to use ✓ Easy to clean ✓ Compact ✓ Affordable ✓ Works quickly ✗ Only uses Nespresso capsules ✗ Small water reservoir ✗ Limited options for a ‘proper’ coffee machine
Nespresso Inissia Espresso Maker
If you’re looking for a pod coffee machine, the Inissia is an excellent choice. Nespresso have improved on previous designs and ensured that each generation is a little better than the last – if you have heard that Nespresso machines need time to warm up before you choose your coffee (for example), it’s no longer true of the Inissia.
The machine is tied to Nespresso pods, so you do not have the option of grinding your own coffee or buying from your local coffee maker. However, it does what it says on the tin – it produces espresso quickly, simply, and reliably.
If you want to learn about the ins-and-outs of making espresso or you’re already a seasoned barista, there are certainly other espresso machines that are more suitable. However, if you’re an espresso lover who does not want to dedicate time and energy to ‘the craft’, not to mention sourcing the perfect beans or getting to know your grinder, the Inissia is an excellent choice. It’s a compact, economical machine that delivers the basics but does it well. ✓ Super-automatic ✓ Makes excellent coffee ✓ Variety of coffee options ✓ All in one – no need to buy additional items ✗ Expensive
Jura Impressa FAutomatic Coffee Maker
If you don’t want to make any compromises when it comes to your coffee, the quality of your machine, or its longevity, the Jura Impressa is the answer. Granted, quality, consistency, and ease of use all comes with a price tag, but if you’re a serious coffee lover it’s definitely worth it.
Firstly, it has an excellent cleaning system and you can just use a cleaning tablet when the machine prompts you to – no need to learn complicated cleaning procedures or take the machine apart. General operation is just as simple – there plenty of coffee options to find your favorite, including ristretto, espresso, and cappuccino (to name a few). The milk spout is adjustable so you can use a variety of different coffee cups, and it’s even energy efficient.
The machine isn’t very compact but it’s not huge either. The system is very intuitive and you can prepare more than one cup at once if you’d like. It’s a full size and almost one-touch coffee machine, and while it’s the most expensive on this list it’s certainly cheaper than many others that offer the same quality and functionality. It comes with a burr grinder and you can program different drink options based on your tastes – perfect if you don’t want to buy multiple gadgets or spend time inputting your preferences every single day.
As far as single serve machines go, this one is practically perfect if you don’t want a portable machine. The customization options do only remember one preference per drink, but for single serve coffee makers that’s generally more than enough. It delivers excellent coffee day after day, without needing you to commit to single coffee type or learn the ins and outs of coffee making. If you’re willing to spend the money on a quality machine, this is an excellent choice.
Coffee makers have one basic function — making coffee — but some devices do much more. If you’re looking for a hands-off experience, you might want to pick a more advanced machine. Added features you may want to consider include: an auto-off function, digital display, clock, flavor-strength settings, programmability and temperature control. But the more features a model has, the more it’s likely to cost. » MORE: The best cheap coffee makers
Not all machines brew at the same pace. Most single-serve coffee makers can prepare your coffee in an instant, while others, like drip coffee makers, may take several minutes. If time is of the essence — or if you’d like to wake up to the smell of coffee — look into a device with a programmable option. You’ll be able to schedule a specific time to make your beverage. Check the product information for an estimated brew time.
Certain coffee makers are sold with accessories or bonus items like mugs, pods or carousels that store capsules. And some retailers may host limited-time sales that offer a gift with purchase. When you compare different models at different retailers, take note of what’s included in the price.
Pour-Over Coffee Makers
Pour-over coffee makers are similar to how they sound: You typically drizzle hot water slowly over fresh coffee grounds (and a filter), allowing it to steep before enjoying a single cup. It requires the most patience when brewing traditional pour-over coffee, and you used to have to manually brew coffee cup-by-cup. They are similar to drip coffee makers but are more of a manual pour-over brew.
This type of brewing is generally reserved for the true coffee lovers who enjoy being part of the brewing process. Many also believe the coffee tastes better through this method since it takes longer and the user has complete control over the brewing process.
However, one of the most impressive technological advancements in the coffee industry is the automatic pour over coffee maker, which takes the mess and patience out of brewing pour over coffee. Just press a button for the coffee maker to start heating, steeping and brewing process. Don’t sit and steep your coffee cup by cup; automatic pour over coffee makers make several cups of coffee for you at once while you do other things around your kitchen. The biggest difference between this and drip coffee makers is that it takes longer since the coffee steeps in the water for longer time.
If you’re a fan of pour over coffee but don’t have time to go through the heating and steeping process every morning, then an automatic pour-over coffee maker may be the most logical option for you.
French Press Coffee Makers
Most of our coffee makers are simple to use, but you can’t just press a button with French press coffee makers. There’s a lot more that goes into creating a good coffee, including finding the perfect water temperature and focusing on the French press at all times. Lastly, sediment can end up becoming an issue at the bottom of your cup due to the plunging action.
Convenience is at the heart of making coffee everyday. There’s nothing better than a convenient, quick cup of coffee to get your day started on a busy workday or lazy weekend. K-cup and single-cup coffee makers are typically the quickest way to get a cup of coffee in the morning. A pre-bought, tightly-sealed cup of coffee you’ve picked can easily be added to your coffee maker and then you can select the cup size you want that day.
On the other hand, you can’t program K-cup coffee makers like you can traditional drip coffee makers that create multiple cup of coffee. If you want to wake up with fresh coffee brewed, look for a multi-pot coffee maker that you can program in advance.
Other types of coffee makers, like pour over, siphon and french press, are less convenient than single- or multi-cup models. These specialty brew types are ideal for the true coffee lover who wants full, robust flavor and isn’t worried about losing some convenience to get it.
The best thing about coffee makers in 201is you can find a coffee maker that makes the best coffee for you, since everyone’s idea of the best flavor is different. Do you like your coffee strong or extremely hot? Look for models that allow you to adjust your temperature settings or allow for programming more or less water to adjust the richness of your brew.
There are a few freshness considerations to look at regardless of what type of coffee maker you use:
Finding the Perfect Coffee Maker
However, to have a cup of coffee just the way you like it, you also need a good coffee maker, which unfortunately due to the full gamut of options available in the market, is something that is nothing less than a process that is daunting and can consume a lot of time. Moreover, a small mistake in the buying process and you can end up with a coffee maker which is not exactly what you were looking for. So, how can you ever find what is the best coffee maker for you? Continue reading and you will surely find the answer.
While you can always spend hundreds of dollars on a high-end coffee maker which comes with programmable features, attractive looks and has many best coffee maker reviews, it is an option but not a compulsion to spend such a huge amount on a coffee maker. There are a number of reasonably priced models that can provide you with delicious coffee every single day for years to come. No, we are not talking about the coffee makers that only come with an on/off switch, we are talking about the models that come with features, like auto-shutoff, thermal carafe, selection of brew strengths, etc.
Thus, to help you make a smarter buying decision, we’ve created this informative coffee maker buying guide with a number of factors that you should consider before buying a coffee maker. Go through this entire post and by the end you will clearly understand your requirements and what kind of coffee maker you should buy.
Match the Coffee Maker to Your Habits
In this part of this coffee maker guide, we will try to match the different types of coffee makers with your requirements to allow you to understand the type of coffee maker that you should choose. As mentioned above, there are many different types of coffee makers available in the market. Let us have a look at some of the most common types of top coffee makers.
Single Cup Coffee Makers
Brewing a full coffee pot when only a cup or two will be consumed seems too wasteful. This is where a single serve coffee maker can help you out. When you are out looking for a best budget coffee maker, a single cup coffee maker can be an excellent choice. Let us know more about them-
Drip Coffee Makers
This is the most common type of coffee machines for home and you will find them in many best coffee maker reviews. One of the best things about these types of coffee makers is their automatic timer feature which allows you to adjust the timer and you will have a hot cup of coffee waiting for you as soon as you wake up.
Cappuccino and Espresso Coffee Machine
For an improved coffee-brewing experience, you can get yourself a cappuccino or espresso coffee machine. There are many different types of cappuccino and espresso coffee makers available in the market and each has their own features to make the coffee making process simpler for you. You can always go through the best coffee maker reviews to know more about them by the people who are actually using them.
Let us have a look at different types of brewers in this category-
Pump Espresso Maker
This type of espresso maker makes use of a thermo block system of coils to make sure that the water reaches to the exact temperature that is required for brewing and steaming. If you like crema on your cappuccino and get a consistent stream of delicious brews, this machine can be a great option for you.
Semi-Automatic Espresso Maker
If you are looking for a consistent performer, a semi automatic espresso maker can be a great choice for you. These machines turn off the heat automatically whenever they detect a change in the temperature of the boiler. Moreover, they also feature automated pump to regulate and maintain pressure to provide you with a consistent blend.
Fully Automatic Espresso Maker
If you want to make perfect cappuccinos and lattes with minimum efforts, a fully automatic machine is for you. By simply pressing a button, these machines will do the job of grinding, dosing, tamping and dosing all by itself. Rather than adjusting multiple setting and pressing various buttons, a fully automatic espresso maker allows you to get your favourite cup of coffee in an instant.
If you like to carry your coffee maker while travelling, a French press coffee maker is the way to go. These old school coffee makers allow you to brew fresh coffee right in front of your eyes. However, these machines require you to have a bit of experience to get the perfect results. Simplicity is the main selling point of these machines and it is highly recommended for people who do not like a lot of bells and whistles in their coffee makers.
The last on our list of different types of top coffee makers is the percolators. These coffee makers make use of a constant boiling cycle which makes use of gravity to brew the coffee grounds until the time the required strength of the coffee is reached. The coffee pot of percolators features a small chamber which is located close to the bottom. You will see a vertical tube leading from that chamber which reaches the top of the percolator. Close to the upper part of the tube, you will also see a perforated chamber. Ground coffee is poured in the upper perforated chamber, whereas, water goes into water chamber.
This feature allows you to choose between a regular and a stronger brew. When you choose stronger brew, the water passes through the coffee at a slower rate to allow it to stay in contact with the coffee for a longer duration.
Pause and Serve
Many of the coffee maker brands manufacture machines that allow you to pause the brewing cycle in between to pour a cup or two and then they continue with brewing. However, if you pause the brewing when only one or two cups have been brewed, the coffee can be very strong.
These are the types of top rated coffee makers that hold the coffee within them rather than pouring it in a mug or carafe. When you need it, you can simply push the button after placing a cup or mug and you’ll get hot and delicious coffee.
A lot of coffee makers have water filters to eliminate foul odor and taste from the water. Some of them also come with a carbon filter. However, if you go with a machine that uses water filter, remember that you will be required to replace them at regular intervals.
Built-in Coffee Grinder
If you like to drink fresh coffee, but don’t have a lot of space on your kitchen counter to place a coffee grinder, there are coffee maker brands that manufacture machine with a built-in coffee grinder. However, many of these machines are difficult to clean and pretty noisy. If you want whole beans, get a separate grinder in the beginning.
This brings us to the end of this coffee maker buying guide. I guess now you have enough information about the different aspects of the coffee makers, how they work, how you can increase brewing longevity and the features that you should look in a coffee maker. So, use all the above mentioned information to understand what the best coffee maker is for you.
Mr. Coffee BVM-PSTX91
Packing in just about every modern bell and whistle, this Mr. Coffee can not only make you a delicious pot of coffee, it also exceeds at keeping it warm, filtering your water, and even provides a unique Freshness Timer which tells you exactly how long it has been since the pot has been brewed. The inclusion of a stainless steel carafe into the design makes sure that coffee brewed in the BVM-PSTX9is sure to stay hot and ready to drink long after it has been brewed, without the need to use more electricity to keep it hot with a warmer and risk burning your brew.
Integrated water filtration makes the Mr. Coffee BVM-PSTX9a winning choice for anyone whose home quality tap water leaves something to be desired. Stripping away contaminants and impurities before they ever reach your cup, this coffee machine excels at producing smooth, consistently delicious coffee. It can also be programmed to make cups on a schedule so you can always wake up to your favourite brew.
One small drawback to the Mr. Coffee BVM-PSTX9is that it only brews up to cups at a time, which can be sort of a small pot for coffee drinkers accustomed to 12-1cup pots.
However, the Zojirushi includes some handy options which the Mr. Coffee does not, such as the inclusion of a removable water tank to make it easy to fill up the cup capacity reservoir for brewing. Scheduled brewing can be set up to make sure you have a cup ready in advance, and the vacuum insulated stainless steel carafe pot is capable of keeping coffee warm and fresh tasting for hours after brewing.
The carafe includes a thumb button which must be depressed before pouring, making it easier to serve from the carafe and also improving the insulating factor.
One neat thing about the Zojirushi EC-YSC100 is its incredible consistent high temperature brewing. Always brewing cups at 200 degrees F, the EC-YSC100 excels at producing consistently delicious, high quality cups of coffee.
Hamilton Beach Single Serve and Full Pot Coffee Brewer
In contrast to the two options above, this Hamilton Beach might seem like a relatively simple coffee maker. Yet it brings with it a remarkable versatility by incorporating the ability to make either just a single serving of coffee, or brew a whole pot. Depending on which side of the machine you are using, you can have just a 1ounce cup for yourself, or brew up a full 1cup pot to get everyone moving in the morning.
Mr. Coffee BVMC-SJX33GT
The 1cup glass carafe is probably the weakest part of the BVMC-SJX33GT, providing little to no insulation. Yet this seems to be the only place Mr. Coffee has skimped on with the BVMC-SJX33G, packing every other modern innovation and digital feature possible into this budget coffee maker.
How we picked and tested
Our contestants (left to right): Braun BrewSense Drip Coffee Maker (KF7150BK), Hamilton Beach 12-Cup Coffee Maker (46201), Mr. Coffee Advanced Brew 12-Cup Programmable Coffee Maker (BVMC-SJX33GT), Black + Decker 12-Cup Thermal Coffee Maker (CM2035B), Mr. Coffee Optimal Brew 10-Cup Thermal Coffee Maker (BVMC-PSTX95), Cuisinart 14-Cup Programmable Coffeemaker (DCC-3200).

The Hamilton Beach 12-Cup Coffee Maker (46205) made a good cup despite being the cheapest coffee maker we tested, although it bears mentioning that coffee from a budget coffee maker just won’t equal the taste of a cup from a higher-end machine or a single-cup brewing method. The Hamilton Beach also has a removable water reservoir for easy filling (and a rotating base to make it easy to access), a compact footprint, and a simple interface. Testers were initially torn between the Hamilton Beach and the Mr. Coffee Optimal Brew 10-Cup Thermal Coffee Maker (BVMC-PSTX95), but everyone said they’d buy the Hamilton Beach after we revealed that it costs about half as much as the Mr. Coffee.
When brewing the pre-ground Dunkin Donuts coffee, our tasters actually preferred the Hamilton Beach to the OXO.
When brewing the pre-ground Dunkin Donuts coffee, our tasters actually preferred the Hamilton Beach to the OXO because it made a very smooth and agreeable pot of coffee. The OXO brought out too much flavor: “rubbery aftertaste” isn’t an ideal start to any morning. Given the utilitarian uses of a budget coffee maker, this proves a strong argument in favor of the Hamilton Beach—especially if you pre-grind your coffee.
At minutes, 30 seconds, the Hamilton Beach also had one of the quicker brew times in the lineup, which is a boon for those who need their coffee quickly. For comparison, the Mr. Coffee 12-cup had a brew time of minutes, 4seconds, and the Black + Decker took a whopping minutes, 20 seconds to brew the same six-cup pot of coffee. If you like stronger coffee, there’s a bold-flavor mode that increases brew time so it steeps for longer (though instead we recommend just adding an extra scoop of coffee if that’s your goal). If you don’t need a full pot, you press the Brew Options button until the “1-cup” LED lights up. You can take the carafe out mid-brewing to pour an early cup if you want, but this will result in some coffee dribbling onto the hot plate below (this was true of all the models we tested, as well as the OXO).
The Hamilton Beach had a simple interface with only a few buttons, all of which served immediately obvious functions.
In terms of usability, our testers in the Wirecutter office ranked the Hamilton Beach the easiest to operate. Its simple button interface is easy to navigate and doesn’t have the more-complicated press-and-hold options of machines like the Cuisinart. And testers found the buttons were labeled more clearly than those in the complicated Mr. Coffee 12-cup’s layout.
In addition to producing the best-tasting coffee and being the most user-friendly of the machines we tested, the Hamilton Beach has a few great distinguishing features. Measuring at 1by 11.by inches, it had one of the smallest footprints of any of the coffee makers we tested. Wirecutter testers thought that its appearance was unobtrusive and downright attractive compared with the garish chrome paneling on the Mr. Coffee 12-cup.
Flaws but not dealbreakers
Although we found its coffee’s drinking temperature satisfactory, the Hamilton Beach didn’t produce the hottest coffee of the bunch. Its brewing temp was 19degrees when emerging from the waterspout, compared with 200 degrees from the OXO or 20degrees from the Mr. Coffee 10-cup.
The resting temp of the Hamilton Beach coffee, once brewed, was around 17degrees (less than 5-degrees difference from the 183-degree OXO coffee or the 180-degree coffee from the Mr. Coffee 10-cup). If you like your brew piping hot, this may be an issue for you.
Long-term test notes
Our runner-up, the Mr. Coffee Optimal Brew 10-Cup Thermal Coffee Maker (BVMC-PSTX95).
Mr. Coffee Optimal Brew 10-Cup Thermal Coffee Maker (BVMC-PSTX95)
For hotter coffee with a taste that came close to that of the Hamilton Beach’s coffee, we recommend the Mr. Coffee Optimal Brew 10-Cup Thermal Coffee Maker (BVMC-PSTX95). This model ranked second in our taste test; tester Tobin Polk detected a “subtle sweetness” and a more balanced cup of coffee than from other machines besides the Hamilton Beach. Best of all, it makes very hot coffee—a full degrees hotter than that of our top pick. We think its added features and user interface make it a solid alternate option. But considering how close the machines were, and the fact that the Hamilton Beach typically sells for half the price, this Mr. Coffee is only our runner-up pick.
At a brew time of minutes, 1seconds, the Mr. Coffee 10-cup is also the quickest of the bunch, making for a slightly stronger brew that keeps hot. Though its recorded TDS percentage was quite high at 1.4percent, our testers found the taste and balance of the coffee it made to be very agreeable.
Although the Mr. Coffee 10-cup’s panel is not the simplest to navigate, we preferred its user interface to those of similar machines like the Cuisinart. Besides having a more direct usability, this Mr. Coffee also has a sturdier—if larger—frame than the other machines we tested. Its sturdiness meant that we found it more satisfying to use; testers particularly appreciated the tight fit of the carafe under the waterspout. Its side-loading coffee filter was easy to remove and fully washable, unlike those of the other machines. Like the Hamilton Beach, the Mr. Coffee 10-cup has a removable water reservoir for easy filling.
Our runner-up, the Mr. Coffee 10-cup, has a less obvious interface than our top pick. What does “dim mode” mean for coffee?
The Mr. Coffee 10-cup has a thermal carafe, but it lost heat very quickly. The glass carafe of our pick, the Hamilton Beach, is pictured at right.
The Mr. Coffee 10-cup also comes equipped with a thermal carafe. Though it has definitely substandard thermal retention compared with other carafes we’ve tested (the coffee went from 180 degrees freshly brewed to 16in the span of half an hour and fell under the “drinkably hot” threshold of 150 by the time a full hour elapsed), it’s still a good option for users who like to brew a pot of coffee and bring it over to their desk. Uninsulated glass carafes like those on the other machines we tested would have fared far worse were it not for the hot plates beneath them.
What we didn’t like about the Mr. Coffee 10-cup boiled down to size and physical attributes. Managing editor and tester Cesar Torres raised the concern that fully removable pieces like the filter compartment and the flap on the water reservoir could easily go missing. Some might also find that this Mr. Coffee feels a bit bulkier than the other machines and looks a little unwieldy. It also has a seemingly useless water filter that’s literally paper thin. We couldn’t detect a difference with or without it.
How we tested
In 2008, we tested automatic drip coffee makers and got disappointing results. Only one gave us great coffee—rich and smooth. We discovered that it was the lone product to achieve research-based standards for brew cycle time and water temperature, two factors necessary for bringing out the fullest flavor in coffee without bitter notes. That machine, the Technivorm Moccamaster KBT 741, uses a powerful heating element of highly conductive copper that quickly brings water to the proper range of 19to 20degrees and sends it over the coffee grounds in no less than minutes and no more than 8—the point beyond which undesirable flavor compounds are extracted, according to coffee experts.
Time and Temperature
Following manufacturers’ instructions for how much coffee to use in each model, we brewed coffee in all of the machines using the same freshly roasted batch of high-quality light-medium-roast beans. (This style of roast would make it easier to detect flaws in coffee flavor.) The brews’ surprisingly broad range of flavors and body reminded us that the machine you use can bring out the best in beans—or totally ruin them. But compared with the last time we rated coffee makers, things were looking up: Three models produced great coffee (one of them was the Technivorm). The remaining four, however, still missed the mark.
We already knew that the amount of time the grounds are exposed to water (the brew cycle) influences the quality of the extraction and which of the more than 1,000 volatile flavor and aroma compounds identified in roasted coffee beans make it into your cup. For the most desirable flavor compounds to be drawn out, that exposure can be no more than minutes long, the SCAA says. If the water spends more time than that in contact with the grounds, it begins to extract undesirable compounds, leading to bitter-tasting coffee. No surprise, then, that “bitter” was exactly the word tasters used to describe the brews from the two machines that averaged more than minutes to run a cycle. It also wasn’t surprising that the coffee we liked best came from the machines that stayed within the optimal range. (How coarsely or finely the coffee is ground also affects the quality of the extraction, but since there’s no way to know what grinder and what setting consumers might use, we didn’t consider this.)
Once again, we also discovered that brew temperature—that is, the temperature of the water when it’s in contact with the coffee grounds—factors into the quality of the extraction. According to the SCAA, optimal extraction happens when the water temperature spends most (ideally, about 90 percent) of the brew cycle between 19and 20degrees, and manufacturers are anxious to market their commitment to this standard. One even broadcast “Optimal Brew” on its label—but in that case, and a few others, the reality didn’t live up to the claims. When we ran two rounds of temperature checks on all of the machines by taping thermocouple probe wires to the center of each brew basket atop the coffee grounds (where the heated water would drip directly on them) and averaged the amount of time the water spent in the optimal zone, the so-called Optimal Brew machine barely broke 60 percent. Two others spent roughly 3percent of the cycle in the zone; one strayed above the 205-degree ceiling for most of the cycle and made “scorched” coffee. The worst averaged a feeble 1percent. Meanwhile, two of the three SCAA-certified models, the Technivorm and the Bunn, clocked in at 8percent, while the third SCAA-certified model, the Bonavita, trailed slightly. The numbers lined up with our tasting results: Those that hovered in the zone the longest brewed “complex,” “velvety-smooth” coffee, while more erratic models produced “weak” coffee that “lacked depth.”
Time and temperature numbers didn’t tell the whole story, though. Our least favorite model, as well as others, brewed coffee within the ideal time range and spent more of the brew cycle in the optimal temperature zone than many machines, yet most tasters agreed that its coffee tasted weak—or, as one taster put it, like “dishwater.”
The problem came down to the simplest consideration of all: the ratio of coffee to water. “The Gold Cup ratio is to 1grams of freshly ground coffee per ounces of water,” said Emma Bladyka, the SCAA’s coffee science manager and head of its certification program. (The definition of a “cup” is not standardized throughout the coffee industry; depending on the manufacturer, it can equal anywhere from to ounces.) That formula breaks down to between 1.and 1.8grams of coffee per ounce of water. Some models suggested less and their brews tasted predictably weak, but the biggest offender was that lowest-ranked model, which recommended using just 0.7grams per ounce—hence the “dishwater”
Sometimes we forget to turn off the machine, especially if we are busy. To save energy, look for an auto-off feature.
If you like to wake up in the mornings with a cup of coffee ready for you to consume, look for a machine that can program the brewing time 2hours earlier.
Brew Strength Selector
If you want to brew different strengths of coffee, then look for a brew strength selector. This feature enables you to customize the intensity of your coffee by generating a bolder or weaker brew.
The brew strength selector saves you the cost of buying new grinds or beans. While a bolder strength decelerates the water flow, a weaker brew diverts water from the coffee grounds.

You might like to watch out for one that lets you set your own time for the java to be ground and brewed. Using the timer set, you will only have to place within the coffee beans around the night before as well as the device will automatically do the remaining work for you. Why take the trouble to wake-up several minutes before only whenever you can get your freshly-brewed coffee to brew and grind to be prepared by the following morning whenever you walk into your kitchen.
Auto-shut Off Function
Leaving the switch on not just waste electricity but can certainly be dangerous sometimes.
Coffee beans must be freshly ground and freshly brewed to produce a great cup of coffee. Drinking coffee could be amazing but grinding and brewing individually could become a hassle particularly if youre hurrying for time. Consequently, grind and brew coffee makers will make drinking coffee more gratifying.

Espresso or Not
When selecting the best home coffee maker, the first question you need to ask yourself is whether you want a non-espresso machine, or one of the many espresso machines on the market. If you make coffee for a large group of people, or like to do other things while your coffee is brewing, an espresso machine is not what you are looking for. On the other hand if you enjoy many different styles of coffee, and can afford to spend a bit of time on the coffee making process an espresso machine will do the trick. There are many different types of espresso machines available to you. Depending on the skill level of the user, you can get anywhere from a manual, to a fully automatic espresso machine.
The Standard Coffee Makers
Machines designed to make regular coffee come in all different styles, shapes and sizes. Some are designed for single cup coffee use, and others are designed to serve a full house. The type you select has more to do with how many people you will be serving. Have a look at the various styles below so that you can make the decision on which is the best coffee maker for you.
The Pot Itself
While the machine that makes the coffee is behind only the coffee grounds when it comes to the importance of your coffee machine, the pot, or carafe, is essential as well. Not only does your carafe hold your coffee, it also plays a vital role in keeping your coffee warm.
Nowadays, thermal carafes come with many of the best coffee makers. Thermal carafes are one of the best ways to ensure that you coffee stays hot until you pour your next cup. Non-thermal carafes are still available and are still a popular choice. If you prefer a non-thermal carafe you should make sure that the coffee maker you select has a warming plate that stays at a reasonable temperature. If the warming plate gets too hot it will burn your coffee and turn it bitter.

Normally the outer body is made of plastic and the inner part is made of stainless steel. It so has different containers that can maintain the temperature for a long time by keeping the coffee hot. The others machines must be of good quality as well.

Though you’ll find at least one coffee percolator in every camping aisle, they aren’t the most user-friendly tool. You have to adjust the camp stove’s heat, make sure the percolator doesn’t boil over, and eyeball the coffee to see when it’s done. But if you’re inclined to do it, you’ll get great-tasting coffee at less than half the price of our top pick.
