Choosing the best coffee maker is hard. There are a lot of coffee makers that make great coffee and if push comes to shove that is the only thing that matters. The other features are just icing on the cake.
So it ultimately depends on who you are right now and what you do. Since I am a mom who savors her "me" time during the day.
You barely get enough of that as it is. The best coffee maker for me is any Keurig single cup coffee makers.
It makes great coffee. It is a single cup coffee maker. It is easy to clean with its K-cups and it is easy to operate.
One hates complications and I do not need that when it comes to my coffee. So for me it is definitely a Keurig.
