There are two types of people. Those who love coffee and those who detest it. If you fall into the first category, then you know how crucial it is to choose the right coffee maker for your taste and your routine. Read on for guidance on picking the right percolator to perk you up.
Is your favorite cup of joe simple and predictable? Does a rich-bodied brew make you instinctively inhale deeply and sigh? You understand the essence of the coffee bean and its powerful properties. You may want to drink more than one cup of coffee at a time. Or, you may have others in your household who share your affinity for the mug of hot stuff. If so, then a tried-and-true brewer like these Black + Decker or Ninja versions might be a good choice. They hold up to 12 cups so you can get share a cup or keep it all to yourself to drink throughout the day. Program it up to 24 hours in advance so it’s ready as soon as you wake up (great option if you need the caffeine to kickstart your day).
Adore the coffeehouse vibe and taste; just not the price and inconvenience of having to get there? Then, hone in on your barista skills and whip up creative concoctions in a specialty coffee maker like this one. Just state your order—mocha, latte, macchiato, cappuccino—and mix concentrated brew with frothy milk and flavorings. Turn the dial to the size you want—single serve, half carafe, travel—it can accommodate one to many. Or, if you like the convenience of K-Cups®, but still want that unique beverage, opt for the Keurig® K-Café Brewer to have the best of both worlds.
The Singular Sipper
Only one in your home who indulges in a cup of coffee? Just need one cup to satisfy your cravings? Love to try different flavors all the time rather than stick to the same grounds? If so, then it sound like you are the ideal candidate for a single brewer. Keurig® obviously has the power of solitary brewing down to a science. Pop in a K-Cup and in an instant, you’re sipping on a warm coffee, just right for you. The hardest part is choosing a color—basic to bold. If you want a little more flexibility, buy this Cuisinart® Coffee on Demand model. It dispenses just one cup at a time, but can hold up to 12 cups. Great for when you have guests over.

What it finally brews down to is this…whatever coffee maker fills the most priority points for you, whether that’s matching your decor or fitting into your budget, is the right one for you. Of course, there’s no rule that says you can’t have multiple coffee machines—keep one at home and take one to the office, perhaps?
