Enjoying a cup of coffee in the morning, noon, or night is a simple luxury that any adult can have, but this can get pretty expensive if you don’t have your own coffee maker. Your favorite drink doesn’t come cheap in most coffee shops, so it might be better to invest in your own machine so you can brew your very own coffee at home! We searched for high-quality but affordable coffee makers and found five products that made the cut.
If you want to wake up to a pot of freshly brewed coffee, a programmable machine like the Gevi Coffee Maker is the perfect pick for you. No more waiting for your coffee to brew, because this has an easy-to-use LED control panel that allows you to set the exact time when you want your coffee to be ready. If there are a lot of coffee drinkers at your home, the carafe can contain up to 12 cups worth of coffee and it can stay warm for 2 hours thanks to its warming plate. With all its features, it’s definitely too good of a deal to pass up on!
This list will not be complete without mentioning a product from Mr. Coffee. Throughout the years, the brand almost became synonymous to coffee makers, so it’s not surprising why people still turn to Mr. Coffee when looking for a brand new machine. Their 12-Cup Programmable Coffee Maker is the brand’s take on automatic drip coffee makers, and it’s one of the most sought-after items in this list. It has a 2-hour warming plate, a fully programmable timer, and a Pause n’ Serve option that lets you pour a cup of coffee while the machine is still brewing. It’s a nifty feature that can help you save time, especially in the morning!
If your countertop is a bit cramped, go for the Black+Decker 5-Cup Coffee Maker. It has a compact build that can fit even the most jam-packed kitchen counters. Its DuraLife glass carafe is built to last as well, so you can keep brewing your favorite cup of joe every morning for a long time without worrying about replacements! The markings on the carafe and water reservoir also makes it easier to measure how much you’ll need in every brew. If you’re not a fan of too many buttons and switches, you only have to press a single button to activate the machine. In a single coffee maker, you’re getting both durability and convenience. What more can you ask for?
The allure of single-serve coffee makers is that it brews just the right amount for one cup, but they require the use of plastic coffee pods. Just imagine the non-biodegradable waste you’ll produce in a year! If you want to switch to a more eco-friendly alternative, choose the Hamilton Beach Scoop Single Serve Coffee Maker. This way, you can enjoy a scoop of freshly ground coffee minus the plastic waste! This coffee maker can brew an 8 oz cup under 90 seconds, and a 14 oz travel mug in less than two minutes and a half. With this, you still get the convenience of single-serve coffee machines while lessening your impact on the environment!
Do you love both coffee and tea? If so, the Shanik Cold Brew Coffee Maker is the right one for you! This hassle-free manual coffee brewer allows you to steep both coffee grounds and tea leaves in its cone filter. Simply add about 20-25 grams of your favorite coffee or tea into the filter, pour 12 oz of hot water, let it brew for about 5 minutes, and serve. It’s a simple way to enjoy your favorite drink without consuming electricity. It also comes with its own cleaning brush that can reach the insides of the coffee maker with ease. Amazing, right?
