Coffee—for most it’s a necessity, for many it’s a full-on obsession.
With so many great machines available at Target, how do you know which is best for you? That’s where we come in. Consider us your barista bestie; your caffeine confidant; your mocha match-maker. You get it.
Need a caffeine fix multiple times a day? Check. Only make coffee when you have guests? We’ve got you covered. How did we decide? First, we imagined how a variety of guests might answer a single question: “How do you like your coffee?” Then we set out to serve up some stellar suggestions.
"I can’t get enough."
If your mantra is, "if I'm home, there’s a pot going" your ideal coffee maker would brew the maximum number of cups, and deliver fresh-tasting java for prolonged periods of time without burning. For these two reasons and more (e.g, you can customize the brew strength and temperature), the KitchenAid® 14-Cup Glass Carafe Coffee Maker- KCM1402 does not disappoint.
“I’m always in a hurry."
You love the speed and convenience of the Keurig system — if only it could make more than one cup at a time! Luckily, the Keurig 2.0 K400 Coffee Maker with Carafe brews four delicious cups with just a press of a button.
"Only the best will do."
Morning espresso is a critical part of your gourmet lifestyle—why not upgrade your current equipment? The space-saving, Euro-chic Nespresso Citiz & Milk Espresso Machine is tailor-made for those with discerning tastes. It comes with a milk frother (winning!) and a 16-pod variety pack.
"No one in my house cares about coffee—except for me."
Don’t judge the non-coffee drinkers—go with a machine that brews one mug at a time. The Black & Decker Single Serve Programmable Coffee Maker, designed for use with regular grounds or pre-packaged pods, can accommodate a variety of single serve cup sizes.
"If it’s hip, I sip."
Inspired by the cool-kid coffee-shop method of choice, the BODUM Pour Over Coffee Maker is a manual, no-plug way to try the pour-over technique at home. This one is a sure-to-impress for any houseguests.
“I prefer the drive-thru."
Who doesn’t? But you’ll save time and money if you grab-and-go from the comfort of your kitchen. The Hamilton Beach FlexBrew® 2-Way Coffee Maker comes with its own 14 oz. travel mug (you can brew your coffee to drip right into it) as well as a 12-cup carafe for weekend mornings when you’re not rushed.
“I don’t drink coffee.”
Right—however, your overnight guests probably do! The answer: Mr. Coffee 4 Cup Coffeemaker, a petite model that’s less than a foot high and stores well so you can hide it away until you have company.
"I’m a minimalist."
Clearly, a French Press is in order—no bells, no whistles, just rich, full-bodied coffee in its purest form. Not gonna lie, we like the Bonjour Monet 8-Cup French Press Coffee Maker because it’s easy on the eyes and easy to clean (dishwasher safe? Don’t mind if we do!).
