Coffee Maker Buying Guide

Water Filtration

Good, clean water and how it tastes has a definite impact on your coffee. An extra water filter is a good choice for your coffee maker especially if you don’t have a water filter on your whole home or kitchen tap. If your water already tastes good, there’s less of a need for a water filter in your drip coffee maker.

Whole or Ground Beans

If you want to have the freshest coffee taste, most experts will argue that whole beans ground the same day will produce the best result for a cup of coffee. Several coffee makers do come with their own grinding machine for consumers wanting to have their beans ground on demand. Luckily for us today, there are also plenty of ground beans roasted to perfection and then ground and packaged that can be used in your drip coffee maker to produce nearly the same quality cup.

Thermal or Glass Coffee Carafe

One area that is under consideration for consumers who like to drink coffee most of the day, the coffee carafe will also be an important part of that consideration. Thermal coffee makers can be a bit more expensive and will keep coffee hot and ready-to-drink for many hours without any burnt coffee taste.

The Right Coffee Machine

Finding the right machine may seem overwhelming given the thousands of options. The ten drip coffee makers we rated and present here cut through the clutter.
