Our Favorite At-Home Coffee Makers in 2022
Looking to purchase a new coffee maker but can’t decide on the model? We’re here to help.
Coffee makers come in many different shapes, sizes and prices. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of some of our favorites to ensure that you’re getting the most brew for your buck.
Automatic Drip Coffee Makers
Automatic Drip Coffee Makers are the most common types of brewers, and for good reason. These devices are typically cost-effective, easy to use and consistent. The standard automatic coffee maker heats water before draining it onto a bed of coffee grounds. The water then drips through a coffee filter and into a glass or stainless carafe. While this method may be less customizable than other brewing methods, it’s the most efficient option for a large household of coffee guzzlers. Some automatic drip coffee makers can brew up to 18 cups at a time!
One of our favorites? The Cuisinart brand brewer. This no-frills coffee maker is painstakingly consistent - sure to brew a solid cup of coffee every morning.

Manual Coffee Makers
For the over-particular connoisseurs, manual coffee makers provide a more controlled, custom brewing experience. With pour-over and French press devices, the brewer must customize the water-to-coffee ratio and physically steep their grounds according to their personal preferences.
As far as French presses go, the Bodum Chambord is affordable and fool-proof so that even the most inexperienced can brew a full-bodied, rich cup of coffee. On the otherhand, the Melitta Pour-Over Coffee Brewer is a classic device for the frugal brewer who wants to dip his/her toes in the world of pour-over…you won’t be disappointed!

Single-Cup Coffee Makers
Single-cup coffee makers brew one, single cup at a time and are ideal for smaller households that don’t necessarily need a full pot of coffee every morning. We love these kinds of brewers for multiple reasons: they’re fast, they’re efficient and they produce the perfect portions. There are even refillable cartridges for single-cup brewers so that you can brew your favorite How You Brewin coffee in seconds!
One of our favorite single-cup coffee makers is the Keurig. This sleek coffee maker blends a premium finish and boasts programmable features for optimum beverage customization.
