What are the most popular drip coffee makers out there?
In order to answer this question, Buzzrake collected and analyzed thousands of user opinions on hundreds of coffee makers available for sale online. We considered the frequency and manner in which users describe their overall satisfaction (or in many cases, dissatisfaction) with each model.
The most popular models are a mix of small and large machines, with different carafe capacities. Opinions show that factors like programmable settings and the carafe’s material don't affect the models' customer satisfaction scores. The MSRPs for the leading models are also varied, with some costing below $50 and others well above $250, which is considered quite pricey for a household coffee maker.
Still, the top rated models have several factors in common:
- They all receive excellent cumulative scores, based on what users have to say about different aspects of the coffee maker, such as value, quality, reliability, brewing speed, etc. Many of them even appear on the list of Best Coffee Makers on the Market.
- Opinions show that most of the top rated models are extremely user-friendly and intuitive to use.
- Users strongly favor certain brands, including Technivorm, Breville and Melitta. Other manufacturers, like Black & Decker and GE, fall short in this category.
