The 10 Best Coffee Makers on Amazon, According to Super Reviewers

We like to think of ourselves as crazy (in the good way) about the stuff we buy, but as much as we’d like to, we can’t try everything. Which is why we like occasionally spend time finding the best-reviewed (that’s four-to-five-star reviews and lots of ‘em) products and single out the most convincing. So, here are the best coffee makers on Amazon, according to the people (note that reviews have been edited for length and clarity). Also note that we’ve already talked to coffee snobs to find out their favorites, and picked out the best espresso makers, too.

Best Single-Serve/Full-Pot Coffee Maker

4.3 stars, 3,321 reviews

“Last night was a perfect test of the single-cup concept. I had already programmed and prepped my 3 a.m. standard coffee brew, however, I still wanted a cup of coffee. I switched over to the single cup and brewed my cup, then switched back and pressed the program button to ensure it would still brew the main pot at 3 a.m. Worked like a charm!! Before, I would have had to brew the entire eight cups that were ready, toss out most of it, and set up my morning brew all over again.”

Best Programmable Coffee Maker

4.3 stars, 2,952 reviews

“Self-identified coffee snob. Couldn’t be happier. Easy to operate, functions as advertised, instructions are clear. The metal filter included does what it needs to do. I recommend a relatively coarse grind (imagine the feel of cornmeal) with the metal filter to get the full flavor of the coffee. If you’re a bit of a coffee snowflake (no disrespect intended) and don’t like the ‘mud’ at the bottom of the cup, you should stick with the paper filter. Either way, the coffee maker itself does the job nicely.” 

Best K-Cup Coffee Maker

4.2 stars, 551 reviews

“Ordered the Aicok to take on vacation and used it for seven days, brewing four cups in the morning and usually one in the evening. It worked flawlessly with the K-cups, and is much easier than fooling around with hotel units. The little coffee maker is ideal for college students or singles living alone who don’t need a large, overpriced unit. It also makes coffee that is hotter than my top-of-the-line Keurig 2.0. For some reason, Keurig doesn’t let their machines brew at higher temperatures, which produces better coffee."

Best 5-Cup Coffee Maker

4.2 stars, 1,221 reviews

“Small things CAN bring you joy. My recent purchase of this Zojirushi coffee maker has made me very happy. Sounds like a commercial, but consider this … Last year, I bought a more expensive coffee maker that made terrible coffee! Instead of using the machine, I started making pour-overs. Something I hate to do … A year and a bunch of customer reviews later, I ordered this new baby, and I am so happy, I am writing about it here. I don’t know if it’s the water filter that water passes through or the fact that the water is introduced to the coffee a little bit differently, but the result is what I consider a perfect cup of coffee."

Best Adjustable-Heat Coffee Maker

4.3 stars, 4,806 reviews

“Strength, blend, decaf, cream, or sugar, there are many options when it comes to a cup of coffee. It seems every person has his or her own unique preferences to get them that perfect cup of joe. However, one factor that was often out of the home-coffee fan’s control was temperature. You either drank it at the temperature it came out of the coffee maker or you let it cool somewhat before sipping began. Cuisinart has aimed to turn that limitation on its head. This Cuisinart DCC-3650 adds a temperature control. It actually brews the coffee at one of three different user-defined temperatures. Impressive.”

Best on-the-Go Coffee Maker

4.1 stars, 6,006 reviews

“This is the same coffee maker that I bought years ago. And it’s even the same price. Yep — they do still make things like they used to. And they last forever. It’s super simple, super reliable, compact, and cheap. There are a lot of places where we can spend money, but a simple cup of coffee doesn’t have to be one of them. Once you get the amount of water and coffee figured out to your taste — simply do that. No K-cup, nothing to recycle, fits the car cup holder. And the coffee stays hot in the mug.”

Fastest Coffee Maker

4.3 stars, 2,448 reviews

“So simple and easy to use. I’ve had the older version for ten years, tested out and researched so many to try something different only to return to this one, and I have no regrets. I LOVE IT! Most coffee makers put out a lot of steam at the top, which is unfortunate when stored under a cabinet. This has zero steam on top of the coffee maker. Also, most water reservoirs have a lid that flips open, which is also inconvenient when stored under a cabinet. This lid slides side to side, and brews a whole pot of coffee in about three minutes. Very convenient for busy, on-the-go, impatient people like me.”

Best Coffee Maker With Built-in Frother

4.5 stars, 291 reviews

“Quite possibly the best investment I’ve made in an appliance to date. This powerful machine makes THE BEST COFFEE. I’m a coffee snob, so Keurig never impressed me, and I don’t have the space to purchase a full espresso machine. The Ninja system is compact, but offers a variety of brewing settings. Very easy to clean. Huge fan of this brand in general, and I’m so glad I made this purchase. Even comes with a travel mug.”

Best Coffee Maker With Hot-Water Dispenser

4 stars, 2,809 reviews

“My whole family loves this coffee maker. The controls are easy to read and use, operation is simple, the coffee is excellent and HOT, and the thermal carafe keeps it hot for hours. (Can’t imagine ever going back to a glass carafe! ) We also love the ability to quickly get hot water for tea or cocoa.”

Best Professional-Grade Coffee Maker

4.6 stars, 352 reviews

“I was thinking, It’s just hot water and coffee, how can it taste significantly different? I was wrong. It took my coffee and added more layers to the flavors, much like a good wine might have. On a practical side, it’s also ridiculously fast at brewing. Ideal in the morning when you want to crank it out and get on with the day.”
