Top small coffee makers
The tough part however is deciding how small is small for a coffee machine. There are countless home appliance brands that sell small coffee brewers, so which are the best ones?
Black & Decker Brew N’ Go Personal Coffee Maker with Travel Mug definitely makes the list of small coffee makers. It measures approximately 9.5 x 7 x 6 inches and weighs less than 3 pounds.
Not only is it small enough to fit any kitchen corner or office desk, it’s also compact and easy to take with you on short trips out of town. This coffee maker pours 15 ounces of coffee directly into your coffee mug.
Another great small coffee maker is the Zojirushi Zutto. Zojirushi is a Japanese brand that is considered the best coffee maker for keeping your coffee hot. Zutto means “always” in Japanese.
The Zojirushi Zutto Coffee Maker measures 10.6 inches tall, 8.9 inches long, and 6 inches deep and weighs approximately 3.5 pounds. In order to maintain its compact built, the Zojiroshi was designed with simplicity in mind and very basic coffee making features.
It is slightly bigger than the Black & Decker Brew N’ Go because it can brew up to 5 cups of coffee, unlike the Brew N’ Go which has a brewing capacity of only 15 ounces.
The Senseo coffee maker also makes it in this list of small coffee machines. Senseo coffee makers are very popular, especially in Europe, because it brews crema coffee, which is similar to espresso since there is foam on the top of the coffee.
