The best coffee makers are a kitchen staple. They're what makes the difference between a basic routine and a sacred ritual. Some people like to mindfully grind their beans and others need a quick fix. Thankfully, for every kind of caffeine consumer, there's a  good coffee maker.

Whether you're deep in the cold brew and coffee concentrate trend or seeking to settle the Breville vs De'Longhi debate, our experts have the answers. Our team of coffee connoisseurs and baristas have tested a range of machines which can make delicious, consistent, speciality coffee.

As a former barista, I've looked at all the household names - Breville, Nespresso, Gaggia, Bialetti, and De'Longhi -  as well as modern, up-and-coming companies trending on TikTok. For every caffeinator there's a coffee maker, and I'm here to help you find yours.

If you're still not sure whether you want a filter coffee maker, bean-to-cup machine, or something in-between, our baristas have written a guide to the different types of coffee makers. If you don't have time to waste, here's everything you need to know.
