The Best Editor-Loved Tools for Making Coffee 

Bodum Chambord French Press Coffee Maker

Bodum 1928-16US4 Chambord French Press Coffee Maker


To buy: $30 (originally $55) at 

This Bodum French Press brews coffee in just four minutes. It’s our favorite French press overall thanks to its ability to consistently produce a smooth cup of coffee, without stray grounds floating around your cup. The mesh filter extracts the maximum amount of flavor from the coffee grounds. The shatterproof beaker has a 34-ounce capacity, so you can get about eight cups of coffee from it. 

Keurig K-Elite Coffee Maker

Keurig K-Elite Single Serve Coffee Maker


To buy: $152 (originally $190) at 

If you prefer to brew one cup of coffee at a time, we found that the Keurig K-Elite is one of the most versatile coffee makers. It can make coffee in five cup sizes, and holds up to 75-ounces of water at a time, so you can go back for that second or third cup without having to worry about refilling the water supply. There are settings for strong coffee if you prefer bold flavors, and it can even make iced-coffee. 

Sweese Double Wall Glass Coffee Mugs

Sweese Double Wall Glass Coffee Mugs


To buy: $25 (originally $37) at 

Our favorite feature on these Sweese glass coffee mugs is that the heavy base prevents it from tipping over. It’s even sturdy on uneven surfaces, so you can take it to the beach or the park without worrying about spills. The double-walled borosilicate glass maintains the temperature of your beverage, whether it's hot or cold, and it’s heat resistant, so if you’re drinking hot coffee you won’t burn yourself when you pick up the mug. 

Bodum Bistro Burr Coffee Grinder

Bodum Bistro Premium Burr Grinder


To buy: $90 (originally $143) at 

Not only do we think that the minimalist design of the Bodum Bistro Burr coffee grinder would look good in any kitchen, but it’s one of the most consistent machines you can get. It’s easy to clean and we found during testing that it works “almost flawlessly.” Both beginners and seasoned coffee-makers will be impressed. Plus, for under $100, it’s a great deal. 

Nespresso Pixie Espresso Machine

Nespresso Pixie Espresso Machine De'Longhi


To buy: $177 (originally $219) at

Perfect for espresso fans who have small counter tops, the Nespresso Pixie is still powerful. Despite its compact size, we found that it produces concentrated cups of espresso with a layer of crema on top. You’ll get an alert when the 24-ounce water tank is getting low, and it comes up to temperature in just 30 quick seconds, which means you can have your espresso in your hand at home faster than waiting in line at your local coffee shop. 

Coletti Bozeman Camping Coffee Pot

COLETTI Bozeman Camping Coffee Pot


To buy: $37 (originally $65) at

This coffee percolator is designed specifically for people who still want to enjoy a strong, smooth cup of coffee while camping or hiking. The stainless steel construction is seriously durable, and the measurements are marked on the outside for ease of use. It comes with filters, which the brand recommends using to achieve the tastiest brew. This percolator is manual, so there are no fancy settings, but we found during testing that it's one of the most practical percolators because it's portable and can be used both indoors and outdoors. 

Garmee Electric Coffee Warmer

Garmee Electric Coffee Warmer


To buy: $20 (originally $36) at

This versatile coffee warmer can accommodate many different materials, including glass, stainless steel, and ceramic mugs. The large base can even fit a small bowl. We especially appreciate that the dual temperature setting, which goes up to 140°F. 

Black + Decker 12-Cup Coffee Maker



To buy: $48 (originally $60) at

This Black + Decker coffee maker is our favorite budget-friendly thermal carafe coffee maker. The large capacity carafe can have 12 cups of coffee ready in the morning thanks to the “brew later” programmable option — plus the multi-layered, vacuum sealed stainless steel carafe keeps the coffee hot. We think it's great for big families or offices, but if you’re someone who drinks many cups of coffee throughout the day, you’ll find this coffee maker useful. 

PowerLix Milk Frother

PowerLix Milk Frother Handheld Battery Operated Electric Whisk


To buy: $12 (originally $30) at

The PowerLix handheld frothing wand has a soft, ergonomic grip. It’s our favorite set because it comes with latte art stencils, and a pitcher for mixing and pouring. Cleaning it is especially easy: Just power on the frother under water to rinse it off, then keep it spinning for a few more seconds to dry it.
