It must be a hard time right now with all the restrictions on movement. You will have all the time in the world to work on yourself, be a better person than yesterday. Things can be even better if you have a good cup of coffee to help you on your way and for that, we are here for you. We did a thorough search of some of the best coffee makers of 2020 and came up with this comprehensive list. You will never have the same cup of coffee once you get one of these bad boys.
1. Bodum 11571-01 Pour Over Coffee Maker with Permanent Filter
First up, we have a coffee maker from Bodum. This one has a stainless steel filter that rid yourself from getting paper filters often. They say that paper filters take in some of the flavors and aroma of the coffee, but this one gives you all of it. The glass uses a borosilicate material that doesn’t introduce any foreign taste. It has a capacity of 1L and the cuff is removable. The glass is not shatterproof, but that is not expected from an entry-level coffee maker such as this one.
2. AmazonBasics 5-Cup Coffeemaker with Glass Carafe
AmazonBasics have some pretty decent products in almost all categories. We personally use their charging cables, camera case, and also some other random stuff. What we like is, almost all of them have stood the test of time. This coffeemaker is also a decent product that performs really well and is also very affordable. The filter is removable and reusable, so you don’t need to get paper filters. It is compact and will sit well in your kitchen or office pantry area. The coffee brews into the carafe and if you take it out, it stops brewing and once you put it back it continues. This is a pretty nifty feature.
3. Mr. Coffee Simple Brew Coffee Maker
The Mr.Coffee Simple Brew Coffee Maker is very similar to the coffeemaker from AmazonBasics in terms of looks and functionality. There is an auto-pause function that stops brewing if you take off the carafe and continues once you put it back. This one also has a removable filter basket which makes it super easy to clean and maintain. One the side you get a transparent window for when you fill water to get a clear idea of how much you are filling. This coffeemaker makes a maximum of 4 cups, so it is ideal for a modern family.
4. Mueller Ultra Coffee Maker
As we move up the ladder of the best coffee makers of 2020, the competition is going to get fierce. The Mueller Ultra Coffee Maker is a great option for an office pantry area and also for a joint family. It makes 12 cups at once and has features like keep warm to keep your coffee at an ideal temperature throughout. There is also a programmable timer to keep your coffee brewed when you want it. The cord is pretty long and will reach the power outlet in most cases. And lastly, the strong brew that this coffeemaker produces is a must-try.
5. Cuisinart DCC-3200P1 Perfectemp
We’re halfway down our list and this one makes 14 glasses in its carafe. Cuisinart is no stranger to kitchen products and their coffee makers are some of the best in the mid-range segment. There’s a reusable gold-tone filter that you can wash and use. Also, we really like how compact this coffee maker is. It will fit in well in a modern minimalistic kitchen with its combination of black and silver colors. The control panel houses all the necessary controls like the 24-hour timer, self-cleaning function, and different cup settings.
6. Ninja Specialty Coffee Maker
This reminds me of a 3D printer, to be honest. But it is one of the few coffee makers in our list to be certified by the Specialty Coffee Association (SCA). The built-in frother converts hot or cold milk into froth within seconds and we liked the texture and consistency of it. The control panel is feature-rich and lets you brew in six different sizes. Since this is not a pod coffee maker, there is the added advantage of lesser cost per cup and no additional plastic wastage. This coffee maker is also really compact and sleek. Most of them use the same color profile of black and silver, and this one uses the same too.
7. Keurig K-Duo Coffee Maker
This is slightly larger than the previous coffee makers on our list. It can serve up to 12oz of coffee in a single serving. The carafe holds 12 cups worth of coffee. There is a heating plate to give you the perfect coffee each time. Just like a lot of the other coffee makers, there’s a pause and pour functionality to switch the brew midway for your impatient friend, who needs their coffee. It doesn’t support grounding beans, but you can use coffee powder as well as K-Cup pods. There is a permanent filter and an option to strengthen your brew with the press of a button.
8. Nespresso CitiZ Original Espresso Machine with Aeroccino Milk Frother Bundle by De’Longhi
We are almost at the end of our list of the best coffee makers of 2020. Nespresso is extremely popular for its coffee makers. If you don’t want to spend more on the Creatista, then you can go for the CitiZ. It won a Red Dot Design Award owing to its compact design and functionality. Since it is a smaller sibling of the bigger Nespresso coffee makers, it supports only coffee capsules. Due to this, the cost per cup would be slightly higher, but you get amazing coffee every time. Like most Nespresso machines, you get a complimentary set of 14 capsules when you buy it.
9. Breville-Nespresso USA Nespresso Creatista Coffee Espresso Machine
Lastly, we have the Breville Nespresso Creatista coffee maker. This is one of the most premium offerings that you can get yourself in the market right now and one of the best coffee makers for 2020. The stainless steel body and the yellow ochre color is just gorgeous. With its price comes additional functionality. We’ll list out a few of them, but you’ll have to go check out the rest. There are a total of 8 different beverages that you can choose from. On top of that, you can adjust the milk temperature and milk froth quality. Another cool little thing that we really liked is the coffee capsules with different aromatic profiles that you get as a complimentary gift with each purchase.
