From almond milk to oat milk (yes it’s real and we love it), there are so many ways to make your coffee go from blah to awesome. But that all starts with great coffee. And to make great coffee, you need a great coffee maker. Good thing for you there are a ton of versatile options out there to choose from from these days! The best part is, our friends at Zola have the A-Z of coffee makers available. 9-cup? Check. Cold brew? Check. Single serve? Check. All you’ve got to do is click ‘Add to registry.’ Now if everything could only be that simple…
From Bodum Copenhagen comes this classic pour over coffee maker that creates aromatic and rich tasting coffee with no extras required (well, except for the boiling water and coffee grinds!). All you do is pour hot water into the filter that’s filled with freshly ground coffee until soaked. Coffee then drips into the glass carafe and is ready in 3-4 minutes. The fun cork and leather accents are an added bonus!
Totally into the pour over coffee concept but don’t want to do the work? This automatic pour over option is the way to go. It’ll provide the same great taste with less hassle and you can program it to your needs. You just choose the number of cups you want and it’s off to the races.
The first time I tried using a French press, I was studying in Rome and that was the only source of caffeine in our furnished apartment. I failed at it, but that’s probably because I didn’t know how to use it. There were a ton of grinds in the coffee and it was not AT ALL concentrated. This version comes with an awesome filter lid so that doesn’t happen. It also has a patented shut off infuser that stops the coffee from continuing to brew so it creates the perfect flavor. Bonus? It’s a French press that is virtually indestructible and can be thrown into the dishwasher. Yes and yes!
We love Full Circle Home for its sustainable, functional and thoughtfully designed products, and this Pour Over Hot & Cold Brew Bottle is one of our favorites. It lets you create hot and cold brews in one bottle that you can take on-the-go. It’s kind of like the stainless-steel water bottle we all love, but it actually MAKES coffee instead of just carrying it. Seriously this is easily a 5-star coffee favorite.
If you’re trying to make the best cold brew in town, this simple and sleek option from Barista & Co. will do just the job. The fine laser cut stainless steel filter leads to delicate and sweet coffee that retains all of its original flavor. And the silicon seal means it’ll stay good for days. Yummmm.
This automatic coffee maker is an upgrade from the standard machine, and is the perfect option if you’re looking for simple yet stellar coffee. The 5-cup capacity is half the size of normal automatic coffee makers, so it doesn’t take up as much room but still provides all the caffeine you need. And it has a drip stop that stops coffee while your pouring, so you don’t have to wait for it to finish before starting your morning cup.
Looking for something you can use while entertaining? This 14-cup programmable coffee maker is not only great for two but also perfect for groups. From one of the best kitchen brands, Cuisinart, the machine is exclusive to Zola so grab it while it’s hot! Features we love? It’s fully automatic, so no one can complain about your bitter coffee, and you can choose the strength, which means your coffee will always be just right.
From the single-serve and easy-clean-up coffee maker we love most, Keurig’s K-Select K80 Coffee Brewing system is a best-in-class option for those who want something that’s really easy-to-use. You can use the Strong Brew button for stronger coffee, and the 52oz. water holder means it can make 5 cups without needing to be refilled for use.
This coffee brewer is on our list because, umm, it just looks so friggin’ cool. But looks aren’t everything, which is why this conversation starter is also known to brew a mean cup of coffee (8 cups, to be exact). How? It automates the manual vacuum brewer process for a complex and velvety cup of coffee. If this can’t create the best cup ever, we don’t know what can.
There was a Nespresso machine in our honeymoon suite and we’ve been fixated on having one ever since. The coffee is THAT good. And you guys, it really is all about the crema, that rich frothy taste on the top of your cup of coffee. It’s so delicious! This Vertuo Espresso & Coffee Machine can create both an 8-oz. coffee and 1.35-oz. espresso, it just needs the Nespresso Vertuo capsules instead of the other Nespresso ones that other machines use. Plus, it heats up in 15-20 seconds, which is faster than we can do just about anything in the morning.
