Buyer's Guide, Comparison and Advices

How we tested the coffee makers

Evaluating the performance of a coffee maker is trickier than it might sound. The first step is to know what good drip coffee actually is. According to the Specialty Coffee Association, there are criteria critical to brewing quality java. Mainly these are brewing time and water temperature. Hot water should come into contact with grounds for no fewer than 4 minutes and no more than eight. The ideal water temperature range is between 197 degrees Fahrenheit (92C) and 205 F (96C).

To see how well each coffee maker meets that challenge, we log the length of their brew cycles. We also employ thermocouple heat sensors connected to industrial-grade data loggers. That enables us to record the temperature within the coffee grounds while brewing is underway.

After brewing coffee, we take sample readings of the produced coffee liquid with an optical refractometer. Given that we factor in the amount of water and freshly ground coffee used, that data lets us calculate the Total Dissolved Solids percentage of each brew. From there we arrive at the extraction percentage. The ideal range is commonly thought to be between 18% and 20%.

We also back up measured data with a good old-fashioned taste test. If the taste of a cup of coffee is bitter, there’s a good chance it was overextracted during the drip. On the opposite end, an underextracted cup of coffee will typically taste weak — it can taste sour or have the flavor of soggy peanuts. And to be certain, we brew identical test runs a minimum of three times to get a sense of the average results.

Best Coffee Makers of 2022

A coffeemaker, coffee maker or coffee machine is a cooking appliance used to brew coffee. While there are many different types of coffeemakers using several different brewing principles, in the most common devices, coffee grounds are placed into a paper or metal filter inside a funnel, which is set over a glass or ceramic coffee pot, a cooking pot in the kettle family. Cold water is poured into a separate chamber, which is then boiled and directed into the funnel. This is also called automatic drip-brew.

What to look for when buying coffee makers

Coffee type: It’s becoming increasingly popular for coffee makers to offer multiple ways to enjoy your coffee such as iced, cold brew, single-serve and more, so if you like to change up the way you drink your coffee, opt for a machine that can make multiple types.

Strength preference: If you prefer your coffee mild or strong, look for a coffee maker that has adjustable strengths. Many of the models we tested have two to three strength options available. Espresso in general also has a stronger flavor as do stovetop coffee makers.

Number of servings: Most drip coffee makers will make 10 to 14 cups of coffee, but if you don’t consume that much coffee look to smaller coffee makers that make 4 to 5 cups or single-serve options that can brew one or a few cups. Manual coffee makers are also great for making small amounts of coffee because you can more easily control the brew times.

Convenience: If you’re pressed for time or don’t want to prep your coffee, a single-serve machine may be a benefit as there’s little to no prep and cleaning up. A drip machine takes longer to brew coffee since it’s making a larger quantity, however, this also allows you to choose your own coffee where you may be more limited if you’re using pre-packaged pods. If you have plenty of time on your hands, pour-overs and French presses take longer to brew and require a more hands-on approach, but the flavor is typically richer, smoother and worth the fuss.
