What Is The Best Coffee Maker To Buy For the Office?

Although we usually write about the best coffee gear for home use, we wouldn’t be way off writing about the best coffee machine for office use. After all, the office is pretty much your second home and where you spend the majority of your day, therefore, having the best coffee in the office is a must, too!

What Kind of Coffee Maker Should You Use at the Office?

There are a lot of coffee makers to choose from, so to pick the right one, you need to decide how you’ll be using your coffee maker:

  • Are you buying a coffee maker for personal use at the office? Or are you going to share it with a group of people?
  • Do you want it to make coffee only? Or are you more of a Cappuccino/Latte type of person?

In this post, we’re going to cover a number of coffee makers that are best suited for the office use, either for multiple people or a single user.

Best Coffee Makers For The Office for Personal Use

You’ll noticed that I picked two single-serve coffee makers for personal use. I prefer these type of brewers for a single user because they are mess-free, make a quick cup and give you just the right amount you want to drink, no coffee waste! They are also compact in comparison to a full size coffee maker, so you can easily fit them on a desk or any type of countertop.
