If Cuisinart is your go-to brand for any kitchen appliance, you should add their Programmable Coffeemaker to your collection! This automatic drip coffee maker can brew up to 14 cups, which is more than enough for all the coffee drinkers in the family. Its digital interface is very easy to use, and can be programmed to brew your coffee the exact moment you wake up. For a more personalized brew, the temperature and brew strength can be adjusted to your liking. If you’re a bit particular with aesthetics, there are 14 color options to choose from!
For faster brewing time, the BUNN GRB Velocity Brew can prepare your coffee in just under 3 minutes, which is 2 minutes faster than most machines in the market. If you feel overwhelmed with the different buttons and switches you need to press before getting your coffee, this coffee maker takes away all the unnecessary steps and brews your favorite warm drink in just a single press of a button. It also keeps an internal storage of hot water so you can immediately have your drink without needing to boil hot water first. It’s a pretty straightforward machine so if you don’t like the additional bells and whistles of other coffee makers, then this one’s for you!
To enjoy both single-serve and drip coffee, you might want to try the Hamilton Beach FlexBrew Coffee Maker. This 2-in-1 machine lets you enjoy a standard drip coffee that can brew up to 12 cups of coffee or an exact amount for a cup or a travel mug! The carafe side has a programmable timer that lets you set a brew time schedule and an automatic pause-and-serve feature to enjoy a cup of freshly brewed coffee while brewing. The single-serve side lets you enjoy compatible coffee pods and K-Cups as well as your favorite ground coffee with its reusable basket. All detachable parts are dishwasher-safe too. Definitely a great deal!
Most brands use warming plates to prevent your coffee from getting cold, but they have a tendency to overheat and damage the carafe in the process. BLACK+DECKER’s solution is to use a double-walled, thermal carafe that keeps your coffee warm for hours without the need of a warming plate. This coffee maker can brew up to 12 cups, or you can select the option for small batch brewing to prepare just the right amount of coffee. It’s fully programmable and has a brew strength selector so you adjust the flavor just the way you like it. What’s more, it’s our most affordable item on the list!
