First of all it’s important to realize that a coffee maker is different from an espresso machine. If you’re looking for an Italian style espresso then you need to look at our espresso machine best buys page.
Coffee makers are different in that they don’t use pressurized steam to force water through the ground coffee. Instead, they will use a filtering type system. This doesn’t necessarily mean you get a worse cup of coffee but rather a different type of coffee.
We’ve put together a list of what we think are the best coffee makers based on the following:
- We scoured the internet and read consumer and expert reviews of the top coffee makers
- We looked at online stores to see which products were selling best and which had the best reviews
- We looked at the longevity of the models and the reputation of the company
All of these machines are available for a great price at Amazon here.
