Not only was this coffee maker a top performer with its brew time and temperature, but it’s also one of the cheapest coffee makers on this list. It’s programmable, brews up to 12 cups of hot coffee, and in our tests kept it warm for a full two hours. It is quite simple compared to other coffee machines, but it is one of the most user-friendly. It also has a small footprint at just over 8 inches wide and 12 inches long. It has a digital display and a 24-hour automatic brewing function, so you wake up with steaming hot coffee. You can also grab the first cup quickly its sneak-a-cup feature that temporarily stops the flow of brewed coffee so you can pour some from the pot without making a mess.
