2 Black+Decker Brew 'n Go Personal Coffee Maker with Travel Mug
amazon.com $19.14

Best Budget Buy

Need a solid grab-and-go option? This coffee maker will get you out of the house in no time flat. Its compact build is great for tiny kitchens (and tiny wallets), taking up only a few inches more than a standard size travel mug — which comes with the machine itself.

3 Keurig K55 K-Classic Single Serve Coffee Maker
amazon.com $89.99

Best Pod Machine 

We love a k-cup machine. It's easy for the whole family and the classic version, in our opinion, does everything we need. It makes six cups before having to refill the reservoir, has a 48-oz carafe, and brews three different sizes.

4 Chemex Pour-Over Coffee Maker with Handle
amazon.com $41.13

Best for Pour-Overs

If you've seen the light through a stream of pour-over coffee and are feeling ready to switch to the Chemex, we highly suggest opting for the new version with a handle, which comes in a variety of sizes. You may notice the lack of bells and whistles, which is exactly what we like in a simple pour-over system.

5 Ninja Coffee Bar Programmable Coffee Maker
SharkNinja amazon.com $109.94

Best Specialty Machine

You can choose from pod-free single serve or carafe functions, and you can even customize your cup size. The Ninja system also allows you to select your brew style, with options ranging from classic to rich, or over ice.

6 Behmor Connected Customizable Temperature Control Coffee Maker
amazon.com $169.99

Best Alexa-Enabled

If you love controlling everything you own via an app (or even Amazon's Alexa), then you'll love Behmor's "connected" coffee maker. You can control everything from the water temperature to the start time, so you don't even have to get out of bed to make your coffee.

7 Cuisinart DCC-3650 Elite 12-Cup Coffee Maker
amazon.com $72.99

Best for Basic Temperature Control

This coffee maker is similar to our "best overall" pick, but with the added bonus of temperature control options. Select from regular, hot, or extra hot coffee, and choose between regular and bold brew strength.

8 Bonavita 8-Cup Carafe Coffee Brewer
amazon.com $97.99

A Good Housekeeping Institute Pick

There are two advantages to this machine worth noting. One is that the flat-bottomed filter basket helps to ensure a more even distribution of coffee grounds for optimal flavor, and the other is that it offers a "pre-infusion" mode that soaks the coffee grounds before they brew to bring out the nuanced notes of the beans.



9 Barista Warrior Cold-Brew Coffee Maker
Barista Warrior
amazon.com $14.95

Best for Cold Brew

Attention, cold brew lovers! There's no need to spend tons of money on your favorite cold brew at the coffee shop. You can easily (and inexpensively) make it at home with this pitcher, and save yourself the extra cash.

10 Hamilton Beach Single Serve Coffee Brewer and Full Pot Coffee Maker
Hamilton Beach
amazon.com $59.99

Best for Two-in-One

If you can't decide between a full pot or a single serving machine, and you aren't quite ready to invest in the Ninja Coffee System, this is a great two-in-one alternative at a much more affordable price point.

11 OXO On Barista Brain 9 Cup Coffee Maker (8710100)
OXO amazon.com $198.45

Best for Nearly-Pour-Over

This sleek machine mimics the pour-over coffee method — without having to spend $5 on a cup or change out of sweatpants. Using a fancy microprocessor, the flavor is seriously unparalleled.
