We have something to confess: we're kinda addicted to coffee. While we love this romantic courtship, our wallets, on the other hand, are furious.
The bottom line is - buying coffee every day can get really expensive.
So for those of us that can’t afford the price tag of buying 2 - 3 coffees a day (let’s face it, sometimes more), brewing your own coffee can be a great way to save money.
To make your hunt for the ideal coffee machine easier, we’ve compiled a comprehensive list of some of the finest and most affordable coffee makers in the world in 2018.
BEST POD/CAPSULE COFFEE MACHINES
The most efficient and convenient of coffee machines and priced at roughly USD $80, this pod coffee maker is a breeze to use and makes your beverage experience ultra-quick and hassle free.
With a smart startup button and ability to also create tea and hot chocolate beverages, this affordable coffee machine makes for the perfect multi-functional household product.
With a slightly pricer price tag than our previous contestant, this automatic & ultra compact pod coffee machine houses a 15 bar pressure system for professional quality espressos, black coffee and specialty drinks.
This machine automatically switches off after 5 minutes of inactivity, giving it an A grade energy consumption rating. Go green.
BEST ESPRESSO MACHINE
Bialetti Moka Express- 3 Cup Maker - $29.99
With an affordable price tag of around $30, you really can’t go wrong with this coffee machine. This manual, stove top moka pot gives you a cool Italian style cup of espresso without the gigantic cost.
This machine doesn’t require too much maintenance or cleaning and is the perfect option for anyone looking for a fuss free coffee brewing experience.
Two thumbs up from us.
BEST FILTER COFFEE MACHINE
Bonavit 1900TS - $159.99
This nifty little piece of machinery is infamous for providing barista quality, perfectly brewed coffee in under 6 minutes.
Unlike many other coffee machines, this one won’t leave a plastic smell or taste in your cup (always a winner), and it also has a safe automatic shut off feature. Safety wins.
BEST BEAN-TO-CUP MACHINE
Now here we have some coffee innovation. Priced at about $85, Cafflano is truly one of the rare portable coffee makers in the market.
This little piece of equipment allows you to grind whole coffee beans (we recommend BIOHAZARD COFFEE Whole Beans) to the coarseness of your preference and then brews you a good cup of coffee using the drip method.
The entire thing is also insulated to keep your coffee hot, because lukewarm coffee just doesn’t fly with us.
Behmor 5393 Brazen Plus Coffee Maker - $145.06
You know a coffee machine is good when it’s certified by the Specialty Coffee Association of America.
This awesome machine met standards based on water brewing temperature, brew time, and coffee extraction percentage.
With customizable settings, such as temperature control (190°-210° F with accurate brewing within 1 degree of set temperature), pre-soak time and altitude, this high quality thermal carafe will keep your coffee hot for hours.
