There’s just something about waking up to the smell of hot coffee and maybe even some homemade bread. If you are single, it’s a pretty simple task to make yourself some hot coffee. You might have your basic drip coffee maker that you turn on first thing in the morning. But if you have a busy family of four, then you may need something that can make different kinds of coffees depending on who wants some. Also, if you are a coffee connoisseur, then you may want a coffee maker that brings out the best flavors of your ground coffee beans.
To help fit each of these needs, we’ve rounded up our top 5 favorite and bestselling coffee makers for the home.

All we have to do is to pop in a K-cup for coffee and then pop in another K-cup for tea and everybody is happy.
