Brewing excellent coffee isn’t easy. Coffee grounds need to hit hot water for an optimal length of time. That water must be within a precise temperature range, too. Only a handful of drip coffee makers can pull off this sort of alchemy. And the ones that don’t (which is the vast majority) serve pots that taste truly awful.
Today’s coffee makers do far more than brew a pot of joe. Some grind beans, others froth milk for lattes and macchiatos, and a few even brew iced coffee. Consumer Reports’ extensive lab tests—and our reviews of top models here—can help you zero in on the appliance that’s right for your kitchen.
