Breville Barista Express is one of our top picks for high-end espresso machines that includes a built-in grinder. It’s expensive, but it does everything. It includes a burr grinder for the fine consistent paint you need for great espresso, and pairs it with the famous Breville build quality. This machine is built like a tank. The outside is made of stainless steel, the buttons and buttons all feel solid and durable. It’s like the Cuisinart Stand Mixer of espresso machines: expensive but built to last.
Sometimes you just need a regular old automatic coffee machine and one of our favorites is Hamilton Beach 2-Way. It is a standard coffee machine with drip, but also includes a secondary spout for brewing a single cup of coffee (and it even fits most travel mugs so you can put your mug there the night before work). It is well made for its price, and brews good coffee. No bells or whistles here.
Cuisinart’s programmable coffee machine is another great option if you’re looking for a solid everyday driver to brew a standard cup of coffee. The automatic functions work excellently, making it super easy to get set up the night before. One of my favorite things about drip coffee machines like this is the way it fills your house with the scent of freshly brewed coffee. The automatic timer means you can wake up to that smell every morning.
Although technically not an espresso machine, as it does not produce up to 15 bars of pressure during brewing, Bialetti’s Moka pots brew a potent cup of coffee comparable to espresso. As it is a hob, it does not need power to operate, making it a great choice for camping.
You’ve probably seen these kettles sitting on the tabletop at your favorite cafe. Fellow’s Stagg ECG kettle has a long narrow gooseneck for precise control when brewing pour-over coffee, but it’s also a great everyday kettle and looks great on just about any tabletop.
It’s easy to think you’ll never need a handheld milk frother, but let me tell you, it’s a great kitchen utensil to have on hand. Not only can it quickly whip everyday milk into a creamy foam, it is also great for whipping cream, mixing cocktails and more.
Following in the footsteps of its namesake, the Instant Pot Milk Frother is actually a multifunction device that can heat, steam, skim or whip your milk to just about any consistency you can imagine. It is also a cute little tabletop and fits nicely next to any coffee machine.
To Cold Brew
This is one of our favorite cold brewers. It can make up to 32 ounces of coffee at a time: All you have to do is pour coarse soil into the small basket, pour some cold water over it and put it all in the fridge for about 24 hours. Cold brewers are lifeguards during heat waves, especially since you can fill up before the heat actually hits.
Some good prayers
Atlas Coffee Club is on our list of best coffee subscriptions, and for good reason. Not only does the subscription make it easy to keep your home well stocked with freshly roasted coffee beans, but depending on what options you choose under the checkout, you can have all sorts of different coffees shipped straight to your door. In our opinion, the best way to find the best coffee for you is to just try a lot of different coffees. Atlas makes it super easy and accessible.
