For some of us, coffee is the magic potion that helps us get from grumpy monsters to functioning human beings. As much as we love coffee, sometimes it gets challenging to manage the monthly budget as the coffee takes up a significant portion of our pockets. But thanks to the affordable price range of coffee makers available in the market, you can still enjoy a good cup of coffee at home. Coffee comes in many forms: espresso, cold brew, pour-over, just to name a few, and depending on your preferences, you can get a great coffee maker for as little as $10. To truly find the best cheap coffee maker, you should start by considering the kind of coffee you like to drink. There are many features in modern coffee makers, and even the cheap ones can offer some excellent options.
The Stovetop espresso maker
The Stovetop espresso maker just costs $10; it is known as the Italian way to make coffee. The best thing about it is that you can easily pack it in your stuff while going for a vacation. It makes four to six espresso shots or one cup of coffee in about five minutes, best for a speedy morning routine, and a solo coffee drinker or for a quick espresso jolt with a pleasant company. This coffee maker works on both gas and electric stoves but isn’t guaranteed on induction stoves.
It is best suited for small kitchens because the sleek design of a stovetop espresso maker looks great as a permanent fixture on your stove. These coffee makers are small enough to fit easily, even in the tightest of cabinet situations. The only drawback it has it is not dishwasher safe.
The stainless-steel French press coffee maker
A coffee on our favorite custom metal art coffee table is our partner during rainy days and cold seasons. The stainless steel French press coffee maker will make a cozy fit and will cost you a mere $20. As the name suggests, it is made from stainless steel, it is nearly unbreakable, and you certainly won’t break it in normal kitchen use. It comes with an extra stainless steel screen, so you can stack them for finer filtering, or tuck one away as a spare, in case the first filter gets lost. The large handle and lid knob are designed to stay cool, even when the coffee is piping hot, so you can pour safely without burning your hand. The best part is its big size that holds 34 ounces so you can easily make coffee. You can even make tea in it, just for a try. Plus, it is dishwasher safe, so the cleaning is easy and fast.
The budget hero cold brew
Our next cheapest pick is a shatterproof cold brew coffee maker, which costs $17, yup you read it right, just $17. This budget coffee maker can make up to 4 cups of coffee, which is enough for a serious coffee drinker or when you have friends over. This cold brew is different than many cold brew coffee carafes in a sense that it’s plastic with a non-slip grip, which makes it more durable for potential kitchen accidents, as the ones made with glass are very always at a risk of getting broken. The best feature of this pick is that it is eco-friendly, it requires no electricity or heat source, just time to brew a smooth, less acidic cup of coffee. You can carry it wherever you go and have a cup of coffee whenever you crave for it. You can even store it in the fridge for later use.
The amazing pour over
This pour-over apparatus is just for $20 and is convenient to use. It includes stainless steel, reusable mesh filter, which is dishwasher-safe but makes this pick a slightly better option than the previous pick since you don’t have to dispose of filters with each. Another amazing feature it has is that it helps you extract the coffee’s flavor and aromatic oils. It is made from heat resistant glass, and heat-insulated silicone band makes it easier to hold and pour coffee in a cup. It can make four cups of coffee at once in just three to four minutes, so it is also time friendly. Its stylish design makes it the best for your kitchen shelf.
We hope that this list will help you find the coffee maker best suited to your budget, while you are shopping for it you can also explore other options as well that comes under your budget. With these budget-friendly coffee makers, you can satisfy your coffee addiction without crushing your wallet. Make the smart choice and have your favorite cup of coffee at home.
