Top 5 Coffee Makers of 2019 - According to Consumer Reports By Daniel Wroclawski
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. CR’s extensive lab tests—and our reviews of top models, here—can help you zero in on the machine that’s right for your kitchen.
And new features aren’t the only improvements we’ve seen lately. “Over the past few years, coffee makers have also gotten faster at brewing,” says Ginny Lui, the CR test engineer who oversees the coffee maker lab.

It performs well in most of our tests and earns an Excellent rating for convenience. It falls short a bit in our brewing range test, which gets at the ability to vary the strength of the coffee. Not a problem, though, if you like the cuppa joe you can make from the limited range the Bella offers. As for other features, this model comes with a removable reservoir, a height-adjustable drip tray, and auto-shutoff.

This model earns superb scores in our tests—and, as a group, Cuisinart grind-and-brew machines receive an Excellent rating for owner satisfaction in CR’s survey.
3. Cuisinart Coffee on Demand DCC-3000
The Cuisinart Coffee on Demand DCC-3000 is a self-serve coffee maker, meaning it forgoes a carafe and has you fill a mug straight from its heated reservoir.

This model receives an Excellent rating for brew performance and does well in our other tests, too. It’s a bit pricey, but for the investment you can count on an all-around great machine you can rely on for both dinner parties and chaotic mornings.
5. Hamilton Beach 12-cup Programmable 49465R
The unassuming, inexpensive Hamilton Beach 12-cup Programmable 49465R might be easy to miss, but it can brew a mean cup of joe at a fantastic price.
