How to choose a coffee maker

Whether you’re a coffee connoisseur or just someone who loves a good cup of java to start the day, the right coffee maker will be an invaluable asset to your kitchen. Let us show you the different types of coffee makers so you can find the one that’s right for you.

Types

Traditional Coffee Makers

A traditional coffee maker brews a classic cup of Joe. They come in a variety of sizes, making up to 12 cups at a time, and some of them are programmable, so you can prep your pot the night before and wake up to the aroma of freshly brewed coffee.

Single Serving Brewing System

Single-serve machines work with a variety of pods, widening your options and allowing you to customize each cup of coffee. Try a flavoured brew, a latte, cappuccino or espresso, all with one convenient click of a button. This is a time-efficient, grab-and-go option.

Specialty Brewers

If you enjoy the ritual of making craft coffee in your own home, a specialty brewer that allows you to make old-school espresso is probably what you’re looking for. Some of these machines also include a milk frother, for lattes and cappuccinos.
