How to choose Coffee Brewers?

Choosing the right coffee brewers can become a very daunting experience since there are so many coffee makers in the market that cater to different needs.

This article aims to help you make your choice not by recommending popular brands of brewers, but by listing down steps and guidelines that would help you narrow down your search and ultimately help you purchase the coffee brewer that will serve your needs the best.

First of all, what type of coffee do you like to drink? Do you like to drink brewed coffee, espresso, or both? Some coffee brewers can make both coffee and espresso.

In fact, some are even coffee, espresso, and tea brewers as well. Therefore, you don’t need to buy separate machines, unless you prefer and can afford to buy separate units.

Second, how many people in your house drink coffee? Do you drink large quantities of coffee in a day? If you only drink one or a couple of cups a day, then it would be wise to search for a single cup coffee machine.

However, if you want to use your coffee maker to brew coffee when you have guests in your home as well, then you should be looking at the different 10 cup coffee brewers that can also brew a few cups, which you can definitely benefit from when you’re only brewing for yourself.

In other words, determine the brew size that would fit your needs the best.

Third, what features are you looking for in your coffee machine? Do you want a non-automatic coffee maker or one of those fully automated coffee brewers?

If you want to wake up to a freshly brewed pot of coffee every morning, then a fully automated coffee maker is the right one for you.


Fully automated coffee makers are very convenient and brew coffee with just a touch of a button, thus those cater to people on the go.

Similarly, some coffee machines come with permanent coffee filters, which eliminate the need to stock up on disposable paper filters.

If you don’t want to be bothered with buying paper filters regularly, then it would be wise to buy a coffee machine that comes with its own permanent coffee filter.

Fourth, which of those coffee machines, which would best serve your needs, are going to fit your budget? Check local and online stores and you might be able to find great deals and save money.

Setting your budget will also help you avoid overspending.

Now that you know what type of coffee machine that you are looking for, you now have a short list of coffee machines that cater to your needs.

The last step is to read expert and customer reviews and compare the different brewers in your list. Expert and customer reviews are very helpful and will ultimately help you make you decide which machine you’re going to purchase.

Since those are written by people who have already used the particular coffee maker you’re planning to buy. These reviews will state if the coffee machine performs up to expectations or not or if it even exceeds expectations.

If you’re planning to buy a coffee maker, these five steps will help you narrow down your search. Hopefully, you’ll be able to find the right coffee brewer that will serve your particular needs.
