What are the top ten best coffee makers of 2020?

Updated: Oct 3, 2020

A simple top 10 list would not do justice to such a super broad question. There are so many different types of coffee makers. However, there are two universal facts about coffee makers:

  1. Coffee makers don’t change much from year to year. e.g., the only real & widely popular innovation in home coffee makers in last two decades has been the Aeropress.

  2. India, although a top 10 producer of great tasting coffee beans, is sadly not a good place for coffee making innovation. None of the products made by Indian manufacturers would even rank in the top 20 or top 30. If you need a good quality coffee maker, you have no option but to look for foreign makes.

So, without further adieu, the top coffee makers of 2020 are:

  1. French Press: Bodum Chambord (6306 ratings on Amazon at the time of writing this)

  2. Moka Pot: Bialetti (5310 ratings on Amazon at the time of writing this)

  3. Pour Over: Hario V60 (1210 ratings on Amazon at the time of writing this)

(Pretty much the same as 20 years ago!)

There have been some meaningful innovations in electric drip coffee makers though, which genuinely make a difference in reducing human effort to make tasty filter coffee at home, in last two decades, and are only a handful of the few certified by the SCA (Speciality Coffee Association) :

  1. Breville Precision Brewer

  2. Behmor Brazen Plus

The best option for home espresso machine is still the Rancilio Sylvia. (Also, not changed much in last 20 years).

Do check out our coffee hardware vendor directory to find out where to buy such machines in India.
