We spent 26 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top choices for this wiki. Great for a workplace or the kitchen of a busy family, pod coffee machines have become popular because they brew quickly and allow each individual to choose his or her favorite drink and get it piping hot on the spot. Our list features choices for novices who desire an easy operation, as well as more complex options for those who require more hands-on customization of their beverages. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best coffee pod machine on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

February 07, 2019:

The type of pods being used is something that can't be ignored when ranking these items. Nespresso is simply the best when it comes to mass-produced cartridge coffee, and the machines that use their pods are likewise among the top picks. Keurig has the widest array of options because it's so widely-used, but it's important to get a machine that has a big reservoir and can accommodate a lot of drinks.
