Consumer Reports is the only place to find unbiased, independent coffeemaker reviews. Need a jolt in the morning? Most homes have a coffeemaker for easy access to that morning cup of Joe. But should you get a drip coffeemaker or a pod coffeemaker? What about an espresso maker or an electric French-press coffeemaker?
Our reviews talk about the factors to consider when selecting the right coffeemaker for your needs. For example, you will need to consider how many cups a day you will be making in your coffeemaker and how long between cups. Our experts at the Consumer Reports National Testing and Research Center have evaluated more than 100 current coffeemaker models at our on-site coffeemaker testing labs. Our reviews of coffeemakers will provide you with coffeemaker Ratings, where you will find the exact numerical score our experts have assigned to each of the three review criteria that make up our coffeemaker reviews: brew performance, convenience, and carafe handling.
We have tested such major coffeemaker brands as KitchenAid, Mr. Coffee, Kalorik, Cuisinart, Krups, Bella, DeLonghi, Black & Decker, and many others. Our coffeemaker review pages also include a coffeemaker selector, where you can input brand, category, and price to narrow down the right coffeemaker model for your needs.
After reading the reviews, you can compare coffeemaker models, review our list of the features and specifications, read user reviews, and submit your own review. If you prefer visual information, you can watch our coffeemaker video buying guide.
