A small appliance like a coffee maker can be a fun way to add a pop of color to your kitchen. We’ve rounded up the best blue coffee makers across brewing styles. Whether you want a travel-friendly French press or an auto-drip machine for your kitchen, you’ll love the color and design of these blue brewers.
The CHULUX Coffee Maker is perfect for dorm rooms, hotel rooms, office desks, and anywhere else space is at a premium. It brews a hot 12-ounce cup in about 3 minutes and has a simple design that anyone can use, with instructions conveniently printed on the side.
Cleaning the CHULUX Coffee Maker is just as easy as using it. The drip tray comes out for mess-free disposal of any drips or spills, and you can activate the full cleaning function by pressing a single button.
The advanced brewing technology of the Technivorm Moccamaster includes a 9-hole outlet arm with a pulsed flow and a powerful, precise heating element. This lets it unlock better flavor from the beans than other automatic drip machines.
The Moccamaster brews a full 10-cup carafe in 4-6 minutes and will keep it hot up to 100 minutes after brewing on the built-in warming plate. Two temperature options for the warmer maintain the coffee’s flavor better and keep it from getting burnt or bitter.
The Keurig K250 can brew 4-10 ounce single cups with standard K-Cup pods or 22-30 ounce carafes from K-Carafe pods.
We love the convenience of the Keurig K250. The water reservoir is removable for easier filling and holds enough for 4-10 single brews. It has built-in water filtration, too, removing scale before it can build up in the lines so you don’t have to clean it as often.
A stainless steel French press like this Secura model provides better heat retention when you’re steeping and serving the coffee. It keeps coffee hot for longer and ensures an even full flavor extraction by maintaining the optimal water temperature for the entire brew.
The plunger on the Secura French Press uses triple filtration, effectively preventing coffee grounds from ending up in your mug. All components are made of stainless steel so it’s also a great option for traveling or camping.
The pale blue color and classic design of the Zulay Classic Stovetop Espresso Maker make it a great fit for retro kitchen décor. While it looks great on a counter, it’s also compact and easy to stash in a cabinet when you’re not using it.
The coffee you’ll get from the Zulay Classic has the flavor intensity of espresso, perfect for those who like a bold brew or want to make their own lattes. It’s also easier to clean than automatic brewers and made of durable cast aluminum that won’t break if it’s dropped or tipped over.
The Nostalgia Retro Electric Breakfast Station is a drip coffee maker, an electric griddle, and a toaster oven all in one. It’s not the smallest coffee maker but it can still be a space-saver by taking the place of multiple appliances.
The coffee maker part of the Nostalgia Breakfast Station is a solid automatic drip brewer. Its 20-ounce capacity is perfect for 1-2 people and you can use all 3 appliances simultaneously so you can brew up a quick pot while you’re cooking.
The VIMUKUN Single Serve Coffee Maker is a streamlined brewer that’s simple to operate and doesn’t take up much counter space.
You’ll get more versatility than you’d expect looking at the size of this VIMUKUN brewer. It can be used with ground coffee or K-Cups and has customizable brew strength and batch size, letting you brew coffee exactly the way you like it.
The SunVivi Single Serve Coffee Maker is another compact dual-brewer. It includes a permanent filter for ground coffee and works just as well with K-Cups. The tall brewing area fits most travel mugs so it’s a convenient choice for commuters.
Speaking of convenience, the SunVivi Single Serve Coffee Maker brews a 14-ounce cup in about 90 seconds. When it’s done brewing it shuts off automatically, so you’ll never have to wonder if you turned off the coffee maker.
The eye-catching design of the Brentwood 4-Cup Coffee Maker will look equally at home in retro or modern kitchens. It’s easy to use, with an on/off switch operation and multiple reservoir viewing windows on the reservoir.
You can brew 1-4 cup batches with this Brentwood coffee maker. If you don’t drink it right away, the built-in warming plate will keep it hot until you’re ready.
This illy Espresso and Coffee Machine has two brewing options: a condensed espresso shot or a full cup of drip coffee. To brew, just insert a capsule and select your brewing mode.
Another perk of the illy Y3 is it’s a mess-free coffee maker. Spent pods are ejected automatically into the drawer and the reservoir removes for easier filling.
Bialetti made the original Moka pots and this Rainbow Espresso Maker is built to those same standards. It’s easy to fill and seals fully, with an aluminum construction that’s as durable as it is portable.
This stovetop espresso maker can be used on electric burners, gas ranges, or even over an open fire. It brews the perfect amount of espresso for a single serving and it’s adorably compact, great for both small kitchens and taking with you on the road.
If you’re looking for a high-tech single-serve brewer, the Cuisinart SS-10 Single-Serve Coffeemaker is a great choice. Its backlit display is easy to read when you’re adjusting the brew settings and you can program it to start brewing or turn off automatically.
The large reservoir on the Cuisinart SS-10 can make 6-18 cups between fillings, adding to its convenience. It also comes with a reusable filter for ground coffee and works with any style of K-Cup or similar coffee pod.
The first question you need to answer is whether you want an automatic or a manual brewer. An automatic coffee maker heats the water and dispenses it over the grounds. That’s more convenient but also means you have less control over the process.
With a manual brewer, you’ll need to heat and pour the water by hand, along with timing the length of the brew to prevent over-extraction. This takes a bit more effort but often means a better-tasting cup. Manual brewers are also more portable since they don’t need electricity to function.
Once you’ve decided which brewing method fits your lifestyle, the quality of the build is the most important consideration. Machines made of stainless steel are the most durable and the easiest to clean, though they’re also often a bit pricier than aluminum or plastic brewers.
For automatic brewers, the quality of the heating element is key. You want a coffee maker that will heat water to at least 195°F for full flavor extraction. More advanced automatic drip machines have features like variable temperature control that can help enhance the brew quality.
Consider how much coffee you drink in a typical day, too. An automatic drip machine is a convenient way to make larger batches for entertaining but may be more coffee maker than you need if you usually just brew one cup at a time.
It depends on the machine. Automatic brewers with electronic parts typically last 5-10 years and may last longer with proper maintenance.
The fewer moving parts on the coffee maker, the longer it will likely last. A well-made French press or Moka pot can last a lifetime, especially if it’s made of a durable material like stainless steel.
Grind and brew coffee makers are a convenient way to make sure you’re always brewing from fresh-ground coffee beans. They can also save counter space since you’ll replace two appliances with one machine.
Like any appliance, the quality of grind and brew coffee makers varies from one model to the next. The best models use a burr grinder with adjustable size settings. This will give you the best grind consistency and coffee flavor.
Yes and no. You’ll get better-tasting coffee from a machine that has good temperature control and water distribution, so in that sense, the coffee maker you use does make a difference.
When it comes to choosing a brewing method, though, that’s more a matter of your personal preference. High-quality beans will taste great no matter how they’re brewed. It really comes down to finding a brewer that brings out the flavors you want in your cup.
