For coffee lovers, a good cup of joe, some espresso, or a latte is more than just a delicious caffeinated drink to sip on—it’s a lifestyle. Whether you’re a proud coffee snob fully immersed in coffee culture or just simply rely on cold brew to get you started in the morning, there’s nothing like the feeling of snuggling up in bed with a good cuppa or taking a few sips of your own homemade brew before heading out for an a.m. workout. But to do that, it’s super important to get a quality coffee maker.
Sure, there’s something special about the experience of going to your local coffee shop, but I’m going to let you in on a little secret: having a coffee maker can not only save you a ton of money in the long run, it also means that you don’t even have to put on pants(!) to have a delicious cup of coffee. Plus, coffee makers make hosting super fun and easy. Just imagine being able to offer your guests some fresh drip coffee or a homemade pumpkin spice latte when they come over (not to mention the heavenly scent that’ll fill up your home).
Before you start the search for the best coffee maker or machine for your space, first think about your poison of choice. For some traditional Italian espresso (no passport required), get yourself a quality espresso machine. If you like cold coffee, there’s an iced coffee machine just for that. Those who prefer something quick will love a good pod-based Nespresso machine. And, if you’re a bit indecisive (*raises hand*), there’s a do-it-all machine that’s calling your name. There’s even a portable coffee machine you should absolutely think about gifting the college student in your life.
