There are many reasons you should pay close attention to what type of coffee machine you get for your kitchen.

The first is, of course, that you’re going to want to actually enjoy your morning cup of coffee so you’ll want to get a good quality machine.

But the second reason is that your coffee machine will likely live on your countertop and you’re going to be looking at it every single day, morning and night, every time you’re in your kitchen.

You’d take your time choosing a stylish coffee table so why not take your time about your coffee machine

So instead of getting a cheap plastic Mr.Coffee machine, why don’t you invest in beauty and get yourself an extraordinary coffee machine that will make you smile when you look at it.

A machine where some thought has gone into the aesthetics; because if the brand has put in the effort for aesthetics I think it’s safe to expect that they will have put in the same care and attention to the functionality, making sure that each cup of coffee served is as good as it possibly can be.

With that said, let’s take a look at the best 3 choices you have if you want a well-designed machine that’s pleasing to the eye.


If in doubt, keep it simple, sleek, and elegant.

The Chemex has been a staple in contemporary homes since the 60s when it was in fact introduced to New York’s Museum of Modern Art.

The hourglass shape, the wooden collar, and the loose leather strap come together to make this striking coffee maker that’s pleasing to the eye.

This coffee maker is of course manual, so you’ll need a kettle to heat up the water and a little bit of practice with the technique to give you a really great cup of coffee. Once you’ve managed it you’ll be laughing at how delicious the coffee is as it swirls around the bottom of the Chemex.

Plus, the thicker filter paper that goes in the top not only looks good but it’s thicker giving you a cleaner cup of coffee that goes down smooth.

Technivorm Moccamaster

For me personally, this is the creme de la creme of coffee machines, as it is for many coffee lovers out there. If you go into someone’s house and see one of these on the countertop then you know you’re in for a treat if they offer up a cup of coffee.

One of the things I love most about it is that it looks totally different from almost every other coffee maker out there. There is no mistaking that C-shaped design when you see it, not to mention the fact you can get it in a full range of colors instead of your standard black or silver.

This really opens up options for getting it to fit perfectly with the design and color scheme of your kitchen. Like I said this is a countertop staple so it’s important it goes with the feel of the room.

Plus these are actually handmade in the Netherlands so you’re getting a touch of European class into your home, and who doesn’t want that?

Breville Barista Express

Now that I’ve gone on about color, let’s bring it back to the classic brushed stainless steel machine. And what modern kitchen is complete without an espresso maker. And the easiest choice for delicious results is always going to be an automatic espresso machine like the Breville Barista Express.

This is the peak if you want a coffee machine as complicated as coffee beans in the top and delicious coffee out the bottom. Plus you have the option for much more control if you want it through the various settings that are available, but you can also set it and forget it, making fantastic coffee at the touch of a button.

What I really love is the design. Some espresso machines look very boxy but there’s something about the Barista express that’s very pleasing to the eye. The way the edges are softened, the layout of the buttons, it’s just a good-looking coffee machine.

One that also makes good coffee so it’s a win on every front.

Final Thoughts

I hope this has inspired you to give some thought to your coffee machine and the important role it plays as a centerpiece in your kitchen. If it’s going to live on display, why not have it looking good?
