If you caught our post discussing different types of coffee makers, you might have noticed that we didn’t include drip coffee makers.

That’s because drip coffee makers aren’t exactly the superstars of the coffee-brewing world. Most drip machines just aren’t designed to make great coffee—but we’ve found the exceptions to that rule!

Here are 5 of the best drip coffee makers money can buy—including a new favorite of ours!

1. Bonavita BV1900TS Coffee Brewer ($92- $133)

For the busy coffee snob
Aside from the convenience features (one-touch brewing, dishwasher-safe components, an optional thermal carafe to keep coffee hot), Bonavita’s 8-cup drip coffee maker is a marvel of coffee connoisseur-ship.

It offers a “powerful and precise” water heater to maintain an optimal brewing temperature of 195°-205°F, and includes a “pre-infusion” button that blooms the coffee for you. The flat-bottomed filter basket allows for even saturation and uniform extraction of the grounds, meaning your coffee will be consistently easy and delicious every morning.

2. Cuisinart DCC-3200AMZ PerfecTemp ($61)

For the anti-DIY type
Love waking up to the smell of freshly brewed coffee? Hate cleaning? Have a hard time remembering to turn things off?

Have we got a coffee maker for you. This little treasure from Cuisinart offers 24-hour programmability, a self-cleaning feature that tells you when it’s time to run it, and a programmable auto-shutoff option.

As if this budget-friendly brewer didn’t have enough going for it already, it also has the ability to make a 14-cup pot or just 1-4 cups at a time.

And don’t forget the most important part: the coffee itself will be nice and hot thanks to PerfecTemp technology, and it can be as bold as you like, courtesy of a button that literally says “Bold”—brew strength control has never been simpler.

3. Hamilton Beach 49980A Coffee Brewer ($54)

For the coffee-lover who can’t make up their mind
You can have the best of both worlds with brand giant Hamilton Beach’s 49980A- it is equipped to brew either a single-serving or a full pot! The glass carafe has a total capacity of 12 cups. The single-serve option has a multi-level cup measurement system in order to fit many different sized travel mugs (for that necessary commute coffee), offering unbeatable convenience. This maker uses either ground coffee or soft pods for either the single-serving or the full pot options; it is equipped with an auto shut-off that keeps a burner going for 2 hours after it turns off! So even when you’re done using it- not to mention when it’s turned off!- the maker is keeping your coffee hot.

4. Bunn GRB Velocity Brew ($93-106)

For the most impatient coffee-lovers
This drip maker from Bunn is one of the fastest coffee brewing machines on the market-  it reportedly brews a full pot of coffee in as little as 3 minutes! This speed is made possible because the water in the tank is always kept hot, so it is always ready to go on demand; further, the state-of-the-art water funneling system allows for an even saturation of the coffee grounds. The flat bottom filter works in tangent with the funnel system to employ a wider and “greater interaction” with the hot water and the grounds, ensuring maximum efficiency when extracting flavor. The maker comes in either black or white, making it a stylish addition to any kitchen.

5. Technivorm Moccamaster 79212 KBTS ($300)

For the caffeinated environmentalist
And last but not least, our new favorite from Technivorm! This polished silver 8-cup drip coffee maker comes with a glass carafe and is “individually tested” to ensure that the best quality maker goes out to the consumer. It utilizes a proprietary “copper boiling element” that keeps water a perfect brewing temperature that is essential for the best flavor extraction possible; a full carafe brews in 6 minutes! This maker is wholly unique due to the fact that everything “from the packaging material to the brewer itself” is 100% recyclable. We love green ways to make our coffee and this is currently the best one money can buy!
