Is Buying A Small Coffee Maker A Good Idea?

There is nothing like a cup of coffee to kick start every morning. It’s hot, it’s rejuvenating and it gets you to start your day with a bang. It will not come as a surprise to you that a little over 150 million Americans who are above the age of eighteen drink coffee every single day!

It is only fair to say that coffee is one of the most consumed beverages in the entire United States. However, looking at the busy lifestyles people have here, manually making a cup every morning seems quite time consuming. This is why coffee makers have become one of the most commonly found appliances in the homes of most Americans.

There is a variety of different shapes and sizes of coffee makers that are available in the market right now, but it is usually best to go for a small coffee maker because of the following reasons. 

Larger Machine Means Lesser Space

The biggest problem of having a large coffee machine is that is takes up a larger place at your kitchen counter. This can be a not-so-good thing in a number of different ways. To start off, you have lesser space to put other useful items. Secondly, there is absolutely no point of having a large coffee machine that would more or less do the same job that a smaller one would.

Makes More Cups Than You Want

More than often, we see people buying a larger coffee machine only to be able to prepare several cups of coffee at once. Fortunately, there are several coffee makers that are available in a smaller size in the market and offer the option to make several cups of coffee. This gives you more of a reason to get your hands on a small coffee maker.

Cleaning is a Nightmare

Although there are auto cleaning systems present in some of the more contemporary coffee making machines, most are found without this feature. Cleaning a coffee maker is a complex task, and if it is large in size, it only makes the job harder. There are relatively lesser amount of curves and cornered areas on a small coffee machine.  Furthermore, cleaning the inner side of a smaller machine also requires fairly lesser efforts.


Easy To Move Around

Whether you are shifting, or just rearranging your counter, moving a smaller sized coffee maker is quite easy. It’s light weight and compact appearance helps quite a lot while moving things around and you know that it will easily fit into the corner you have emptied out for it.


Coffee makers are present in all shapes, types, and sizes in the market. Although smaller coffee makers perform well in some areas, a large one might do better in others. The size of the coffee maker is a matter of preference, but not having a coffee making machine altogether is something that might cost you on time and ease.
