10 Best Automatic Drip Coffee Makers| Best Coffee Makers of 2021

 there's nothing like waking up on the aroma of freshly-brewed cup of java before doing anything else.

Today’s coffee makers do far more than brew a pot of joe. Some grind beans, others froth milk for specialty drinks such as lattes and macchiatos, and a few even brew iced coffee. 

When shopping for a  coffee maker,  Each come with a set of unique pros and cons to consider before buying

Below are reviews of 10 of the best coffee makers we've evaluated that are currently on the market




DGB-800 Burr Grind & Brew Automatic Coffee Maker

For the freshest tasting cup of coffee, the Cuisinart Grind and Brew grinds your beans immediately before brewing, or use pre-ground coffee if that’s what you have on hand. It features a burr grinder, which is designed to grind coffee very evenly  — the more even the grind, the more flavor extracted. The coffee beans pass between two augers to be ground, rather than chopped by a blade.

Coffee Quality: EXCELLENT

We tend to drink our coffee in the morning with before during and just after breakfast  , we love our coffee strong and natural. We exclusively use the Grind & Brew each morning -- when we bother to program the Grind & Brew to go off automatically -- it acts as a great alarm system heard up in our 2 floor bedroom......the aroma of our dark roast beans being fresh ground fills the kitchen, followed by the smell and sound of fresh coffee dripping into the stainless steel carafe . The taste is cleaner, and smooth even brewed on the strongest brew settings.

Cleaning out Grinder

I clean out the grinder shute every 3rd day -- the nice thing is you remove your old grinds -- clean out your filter basket and put back in place with filter basket lid off......remove the coffee bean hopper on top.......open the hatch which reveals the "grinder shute" -- I use a sem-stiff brush used for Tempera Paints......and a sharp pic like a bamboo skewer.......the ground coffee gets dropped into the clean filter basket to be brewed in your next coffee pot.

Coffee Carafe and Hot Plate

The carafe is stainless steel, which helps keep the coffee warm for abt 30 minutes. There is a “Hot plate” that stays on for abt 5-10 minutes. By the time we get to a 3rd refill the coffee is warm but not hot and gets a quick 30 second reheat in the microwave……….What is great is any leftover coffee tastes as good after reheating as fresh brewed.

Pros:

Burr Grinder

Stores ½ lb whole beans

Just add water and press ON

Custom brew strength

Programmable Timer

Cons:

Coffee Carafe a little difficult to pour from

Hot Plate -- would prefer option to set warmer times


Capacity: 12-cup

Auto shut-off: Yes, adjustable

Programmable: Yes


BEST OVERALL DRIP COFFEE MAKER

BrewSense Drip Coffee Maker

The well-designed Braun BrewSense came closer to the gold standard for water brewing temperature than almost any other drip coffee maker in our testing, and delivered a rich, bold, hot cup of coffee. It has settings to program the coffee to brew ahead of time and you can adjust the brew strength and the temperature of the warming plate. It's also available in black. 

Great coffee maker that takes up little space. However, we have found that we have to use more coffee than before. On this particular model, there is no brew strength adjustment. We have actually doubled the amount of fresh coffee beans used. But it does look great on the counter hehe. 

Capacity: 12-cup

Auto shut-off: 2 hours

Programmable: Yes


Coffee Maker BLACK + DECKER

This Black & Decker coffee maker proves you don't need to spend a fortune to make an excellent cup of coffee at home. It was one of the few in our test that brewed coffee hot and kept it that way for a full two hours. It was also was one of the most user-friendly models we tested. 

The best part is I can smell the coffee brewing every morning all the way upstairs which is the best alarm clock ever. Great value!

It's easy to operate, simple to learn without instructions.

Capacity: 12-cup

Auto shut-off: 2 hours

Programmable: Yes


Cuisinart SS-20 Coffee Center -Serve Brewer Coffeemaker, Silver

Up to 10 cups capacity

Easy to use and fully programmable

Budget-friendly

Keep the coffee hot for hours

I have to say that after reading and following the instructions and trying every option for brewing it offers, this is the best and most versatile coffeemaker I have ever owned in my life... it does it all,... does it perfectly,... and makes great coffee and works perfectly... definitively worth the price.


Bonavita Connoisseur BV1901TS

Better-tasting coffee, bare-bones design

This dead-simple machine brewed the best coffee in our tests, but it lacks the convenience of a programmable start time, and the carafe is clunky, easy to use.


BREW Coffee Maker OXO

For a cup of coffee certified by the Specialty Coffee Association, try the OXO Brew Coffee Maker. This special stamp of approval guarantees that the coffee is made with the perfect amount and temperature of water based on the cups of coffee you select. It also adjusts the brew time accordingly. 

The coffee maker is very easy to use and is powered by a single button for a seamless user experience. We also found the control panel very easy to read. The coffee comes out rich and full of flavor, and stays warm for hours in the thermal carafe.

Capacity: 9-cup
Auto shut-off: 60 minutes
Programmable: Yes

Brew Express BEC-110BS

Auto-filling of water
Includes 10-Cup Thermal carafe
Fully functional
Makes the best coffee of any coffee maker ,  reason it simply brews smoother, less bitter coffee than any of my other 
Build quality is excellent. Really feels



Hamilton Beach 2-Way Brewer Coffee Maker 

Budget-friendly
Allows K-Cups as well
Programmable
Multiple strength settings (regular to bold)


Ninja Hot and Cold Brewed System

Incredible for an array of hot/cold drinks
6 brew sizes (single cup, travel, and family)
User-friendly interface
5 strength settings (classic, rich, over ice, cold brew or specialty)
Includes thermal carafe (10 cups) to keep your coffee hot for hours

The only thing worth pointing out is the height. If you want a machine that fits under the shelves, you should check your height before buying because this machine is high.

Anyway, since the stream is coming on top of the machine, you might not want to keep it under your shelves when used



One-Touch Coffee Maker

If you gravitate toward appliances with a bare-bones, fuss-free design, you'll appreciate the single switch of the Bonavita One-Touch. It'll make up to eight cups of deliciously balanced java fast.

Capacity: 8-cup
Auto shut-off: Yes
Programmable: No
