Staying warm and caffeinated on a cold winter morning can be tougher than it sounds. Sure, a basic drip coffee pot can do the trick, but there are so many better options. Imagine a smart coffee maker that can brew your perfect cup on its own and offers complete control. That’s what you’re getting with this list, the very best smart coffee makers you can buy.
Best smart coffee makers:
- Nespresso Vertuo Espresso Machine
- Atomi Smart 12 Cup Coffee Maker
- Cuisinart SS-10P1 Single-Serve Coffee Maker
- Hamilton Beach Two-Way Brewer
- Ninja Hot and Cold Brew System
Editor’s note: We’ll be updating this list of the best smart coffee makers regularly as new products launch.
1. Nespresso Vertuo by De’Longhi
The Nespresso Vertuo is a versatile coffee maker with a large 54-ounce tank capacity. It can handle five different single-serve coffee or espresso cup sizes and three temperature settings (medium, hot, and extra hot). The Vertuo heats in just 15 seconds for a fast cup any time and it shuts down after nine minutes of inactivity to save energy.
The device features Bluetooth connectivity, which you’ll need for all smart features. There is a Nespresso mobile app, but it’s used for the basics like ordering capsules and scheduling machine maintenance. Of course, this is just one of many Nespresso options, so don’t be afraid to try your latte a few different ways.
2. Atomi Smart Wi-Fi 12 Cup Coffee Maker
One of the best features of a smart coffee maker is the ability to start a pot from just about anywhere. Atomi’s large, 12 cup coffee maker offers both Google Assistant and Alexa integrations that are easy as can be. If you wake up in bed and you’re out of range of the microphone, you can start brewing right from the Atomi app on your phone.

You can also schedule a pot to brew at the same time each day, but that’s become more of a standard than a smart feature. Atomi’s Smart Coffee Maker includes a reusable filter so you can cut down on your waste while you caffeinate.
3. Cuisinart SS-10P1
The Cuisinart SS-10P1 aims to be an even smarter coffee maker than the king of single-serve, Keurig. For starters, it includes a reusable HomeBarista cup that you can easily fill with your own ground coffee. It’s a perfect blend of the convenience of single-serve with the delicious taste of freshly ground beans. You can even use the built-in LCD screen to choose your brew temperature, size, and set yourself a timer.
If you prefer tea to coffee, you can dispense water at the perfect temperature just as easily. You can even use the rinse feature to clean out your coffee maker after sweet treats like hot chocolate. It truly does cover just about any hot drink you could ask for, or pour your drink over ice on hot summer days.
4. Hamilton Beach Two-Way Brewer
The Two-Way Brewer from Hamilton Beach doesn’t offer app integration or Alexa commands, but it’s a powerful option that lets you choose your brew. It’s equipped with two separate filters to make carafes and single-serve travel mugs simultaneously at regular or bold strengths. One of the most convenient features Hamilton Beach has added is the ability to pause brewing so you can pour a cup halfway through.
The Hamilton Beach Two-Way Brewer is another option that helps to eliminate waste because the filter basket doubles as a measuring scoop.
5. Ninja Hot and Cold Brewed System
If your coffee taste changes by the hour, a coffee maker that does both hot and iced might be the right choice for you. Luckily, the Ninja Hot and Cold Brewed System offers the flexibility of five brew styles and six different sizes. You can make anything from a single cup all the way up to a carafe.
The Ninja Hot and Cold Brewed System isn’t limited to just coffee either. You can make tea with the loose-leaf basket, a carafe of cold brew, or use the milk frother for a latte. It’s easily the most flexible option on the list and now you can keep your coffee or tea hot for longer with the included thermal carafe.
We think professional baristas might even like some of these features, while coffee lovers should enjoy them immensely. We hope these best smart coffee makers rock your world, and keep getting better through the years to come. In the meantime, another cup…
