Are you living solo? Do you and your spouse live together, or is it just you and a roommate? Whatever your living conditions are, if you don’t have a lot of people who drink coffee in your house, or you just aren’t a huge coffee drinker yourself, you might want to downgrade the size of your current full-sized coffee maker for a 5-cup machine.

A 5 cup coffee maker will make just the perfect amount of coffee if you don’t use a lot of it, which means that you won’t have to worry about burning a pot of coffee that is just too big, and you won’t have to worry about wasting a full 10 or 12 cup pot because all of it wasn’t consumed.

If you are about to go out shopping for a 5 cup coffee maker, be prepared because there are a lot of them on the market. However, with the following list, you’ll be able to find a 5 cup coffee maker that will meet your needs and that will give you a great tasting cup of coffee.

Here’s a look at the 5 cup coffee makers that we really thought were top notch.


The Mr. Coffee TF6 5 Cup Switch Coffee Maker

The Best 5-Cup Coffee Makers

Price: $22.79

Simple and straightforward, the Mr. Coffee TF6 6 Cup Switch Coffee Maker doesn’t have any bells and whistles, but it sure makes a great tasting cup of coffee. Though it’s not programmable and there isn’t an automatic shut off, this coffee maker does have a pause and serve feature, so you can sneak a cup of Joe before the entire pot is done brewing. This is a very basic coffee maker, and that’s exactly what it’s intended to be. Just pour in your water, pour in your coffee grounds, turn it on, let the coffee brew and enjoy. That’s it. Easy-peasy.


The Mr. Coffee JWX3 Programmable Coffee Maker

The Best 5-Cup Coffee Makers

Price: $25.00 

This is another 5 cup coffee maker from Mr. Coffee that earns a spot on our list because it has a few basic features and because it is inexpensive. The Mr Coffee JWX3 Programmable Coffee Maker boasts some features like an on/off indicator light, a removable filter basket for easy cleaning, a dual water window so that you can see exactly how much water is being added into the machine, a brew and pause function and it can also be programmed to brew a pot of coffee up to 24 hours ahead of time. This machine is a little more high-fangled than the previous model, however, it’s simple to use and makes a very good cup of coffee.


The Zojirushi Zutto 5 Cup Drip Coffee Maker

The Best 5-Cup Coffee Makers

Price: $59.29

The Zojirushi Zutto 5 Cup Drip Coffee Maker has a sleek, modern design that we think looks awesome. We also really like that it has a charcoal filter that removes all of the impurities out of the water so that you can enjoy a totally pure tasting cup of coffee. The water tank is also removable, which means that filling up with water is totally easy and not messy. Another thing to note is that this 5 cup coffee maker is very easy to clean; a totally awesome feature for all types of coffee drinkers.


The Capresso Black 42605 5 Cup Mini Drip Coffee Maker

The Best 5-Cup Coffee Makers

Price: $39.95

What’s not to like about the Capresso Black 42605 5 Cup Mini Drip Coffee Maker? It has a black and stainless steel design, which gives it a nice and modern look. There’s a very easy to read LCD display, which lets you know what time it is and what function is being performed. The permanent filter makes is easy to remove for emptying and cleaning, plus, it means that you don’t have to worry about buying coffee filters anymore. There’s a non-stick warming plate that will keep your pot of coffee nice and warm for up to two hours. The automatic shut-off gives you peace of mind should you forget to turn the machine off before you leave the house or take a shower.


The Kenmore 5 Cup Digital Coffee Maker

The Best 5-Cup Coffee Makers

Price: $31.99

We really like the Kenmore 5 Cup Digital Coffee Maker because it’s simple, straightforward and it has some pretty nice and handy features, too. It has a metal filter, which means that you don’t have to fumble with those paper filters anymore (or spend money on them); plus, it means that you get the real flavor from the coffee grounds because those paper filters tend to interfere with the oils from the beans. The pause and serve function lets you grab a cup of coffee even before the machine is done brewing, which is perfect for the impatient person who doesn’t want to wait for the entire pot to finish brewing before grabbing a cup of Joe.

Another great feature of this 5 cup coffee maker is the 24-hour programmable function, so you can set up your coffee to brew for the morning before you go to bed and you can wake up to a freshly brewed pot of coffee. There’s a two-hour auto shut-off feature, so you don’t have to worry if you shut the machines off when you leave the house. It’s nice and small, too, which means that it will fit perfectly on the countertop of even the tiniest kitchen.


DeLonghi KMix 5 Cup Coffee Maker

The Best 5-Cup Coffee Makers

Price: $138.00

Talk about a stylish 5 cup coffee maker! The DeLonghi KMix 5 Cup Coffee Maker has a totally modern design that comes in an array of colors, including red, orange, yellow, blue and black. The warming plate and the front panel is stainless steel, which creates a nice juxtaposition against the colorful sides. There’s a permanent nylon filter that is super easy to use and easy to clean. Thanks to the anti-drip feature, you don’t have to worry about spilling any coffee when you’re pouring. And, there Sure-Grip carafe makes it possible to pour the coffee without worrying about dropping the pot.
