Keurig Single-Serve Coffee Maker

Keurig has created some of the best single-serve coffee makers, but the K-Elite is one of our favorites because it can make hot and iced coffee all in one machine. You can use the timer to tell it when to start brewing so your cup is ready right away in the morning, and remove the drip tray to fit a travel mug for when you need to take your beverage on the go.

Manual Coffee Grinder

Take a page from a barista's book and use a burr grinder instead of one with blades. The reason: Blades will not evenly crush the beans, an essential step in the brewing process. The JavaPresse manual coffee grinder not only uses burrs, but it has more than 18 settings to give you precise control of your grounds. No wonder it has over 8,000 five-star reviews on Amazon!
