Single cup coffee makers are famous for their super-fast single-serve options that are always ready and hot on demand. In return, they take a little more maintenance and a quick check to make sure the water is fresh. Not a bad deal.

If you’re looking for a high-tech single-serve coffeemaker for your home or coffee-loving office, we’ve collected the best models for you to take a look at. There’s something here for every coffee fan, from basic Keurigs to more elaborate coffee stations.

Keurig K575 ($173)

Keurig K575

There are, of course, many different Keurig models of different sizes, suitable for all sorts of kitchens. But when it comes to the best high-tech, heavy-duty Keurig, the K575 reigns supreme. The touchscreen gives you more options than most Keurigs for setting your preferences, including brew sizes, strength control, five temperature settings, and automatic set times. Plus, the 80-ounce water reservoir is easily big enough to accommodate (although remember to clean it periodically). If you’re the only one using the coffee maker, a smaller model may be better, but for frequent use, you won’t find a better model. Just make sure you stay stocked up on coffee pods.

SharkNinja Cofffee Bar with Auto-iQ ($153)

SharkNinja Cofffee Bar

How can a “coffee bar” be single cup? By including a plethora of delicious coffee creation options that far exceeds a simple pod-and-pull model. This SharkNinja model gives you an incredible amount of choices. First, you choose your coffee cup size, followed by a brew type, which includes Classic, Rish, Over Oce, Specialty, and more. Then you can choose whether or not to use the milk frother. Automated technology will then choose a calibrated temperature based on your other choices. Pretty great, right? However, there are no pods that work with this model, which is designed for loose grounds—this could be a plus or minus, based on how you like your coffee.
