I’ve never been happier that I have a coffee machine I love ever since I started working from home. While I used to get the occasional cup at the office or on the way, I’ve now become entirely reliant on my at-home maker. Working from home means that this machine is my only access to my daily subsistence. Because there are plenty of styles to choose from, and plenty of great options out there too, we’ve rounded up the best-selling, and top-rated ways for you to make coffee at home.
Cuisinart Programmable Coffee Maker
This modern and stylish maker allows you to control how hot the carafe gets, so your coffee is always the right temperature. And if you’re feeling bold, hit that bold button to give your coffee an extra kick.
Keurig K-Duo Coffee Maker
Not only is this coffee maker programmable so you can have it start brewing so you can literally wake up to the smell of coffee, it’s also helpful in coffee management. With other drip machines, it can feel like this decision of whether or not to make another pot. Thanks to this dual purpose machine, you can make whatever you’re in the mood for—whether it’s just a cup, or a whole freakin’ pot.

No bells. Few whistles. Get a machine that will make it easy to brew coffee and do so for less than $20. Its warming plate is easy to clean and the machine lets you grab a cup while it’s brewing with a special auto-pause capability because mornings sometimes demand that type of urgency.

Nespresso Inissia by De'Longhi Original Espresso Machine
Espresso, black (or silver, if you prefer) and simple. From programmable espresso to single-serve coffee, the machine’s designed to get brewing in less than 30 seconds. The reservoir holds enough water to cycle through nine single serves before requiring a refill, which should carry you through the week.
Toddy Cold Brew System
Yes, you can cold brew at home (in many ways) and this highly-rated option allows for hot drip coffee, cold brew, and even tea. The brewing container sits atop an included glass decanter and filters beans into coffee concentrate that’s substantially less acidic than its hot brew cousins. And Toddy promises that it “stays fresh for up to 2 weeks with no change to the flavor.”
