For coffee drinkers, there's always a new trend in the brewing world that promises to deliver your sweet, sweet caffeine fix in a better or tastier way. And sure, nitro cold-brew and pour-over coffee are delightful if you can afford a $5-per-day habit (or wait for 10 minutes until your barista finishes preciously pouring yours), but for most of us, the old standby -- a countertop automatic drip coffee maker -- gets the job done just fine.
That's not to suggest selecting the right automatic drip coffee machine for you is simple. Quite the opposite, in fact. Walk through any big box store's kitchen section and you're bombarded with a dizzying number of bells and whistles (and wildly different price points) packed into what should be a fairly simple countertop appliance. So, whether your decade-old Mr. Coffee is ready to croak or you're just looking to upgrade to something a bit snazzier, here are the best coffee makers on the market right now to match every sort of need.
