In this fast paced world, having the fastest coffee maker available can only enhance your daily caffeination routine. We live in a world where everything and everyone demands speed. Our whole lives revolve around doing things as fast as we can. Completing the assignment fast, reaching our workplace fast, doing the presentation fast, preparing food fast, and for that, we need various machines to help us make our work easier and faster. That’s why many traditional espressso machine manufacturing companies focus on making a single serve fast brew coffee maker with enhanced speed, that still serve a great cup of coffee.
Similarly, we want our coffee to be ready in a minute. Drinking coffee is the first thing many of us do right when we wake up, and for that reason, coffee machines have been manufactured to brew coffee in less than a minute. There are even some machines that can brew in even less than a minute.
Here is a list of the fastest coffee makers available on the market today.
1. Our Favorite Fastest Nespresso – Nespresso Inissia Review
Why we love the Nespresso Inissia espresso machine
No matter where you are – in London or Texas, all coffee addicts have heard of the Nespresso Inissia espresso maker. This beloved model from Nespresso has been bought and reviewed by thousands of coffee lovers worldwide.
This fast coffee maker makes one cup at a time, under a minute, including the 25 seconds it takes to pre-heat the water. Once the machine is heated, start brewing your coffee by pressing either the espresso button (for 1.35 oz. of coffee) or the Lungo button (for 5oz. of coffee), as desired.
You can also have as much water in the tank for 8 cups of coffee without refilling the water reservoir. The Nespresso Inissia automatically turns off the machine after 9 minutes of idle time. It also comes with a foldable drip tray to accommodate larger brew sizes.
If you love milky, frothy coffee, opt for the variant with the Aeroccino Milk Frother. The Aeroccino Plus Milk Frother creates excellent and finely-textured frothy coffees, which is a luxury at home. Overall, with just 30 seconds of brewing time, the Nespresso Inissia espresso maker is our pick for one of the best fastest coffee makers available on today’s market.
- Light in weight just 5.3 lbs / 2.7 kg.
- Compact measuring only 4.7 x 9 x 12.6 in / 12 x 23 x 32.1 cm.
- Brews coffee in just 30 seconds.
- Water tank (20.3 oz / 700 ml) has a lid and is removable for easy filling.
- Comes in a wide range of colors including red, black, blue, orange.
- 1260 W of power and 19 bars of pressure.
- Machine automatically turns off after 9 minutes.
- Programmable with just two buttons.
- The drip tray can be folded.
- It holds 10 used capsules.
- Can be used with all Nespresso compatible pods (unlike the Nespresso Vertuo which scans the barcode of the capsule / pod).
- Limited hot water capacity.
- Makes basic, automated drinks only.
- Made from plastic which can mark, but which does make it lightweight.
- Some “experts” suggest the coffee quality isn’t great however we prefer the views of the thousands of people who’ve bought it and who consistently report it making a great espresso.
- No warning when there’s an empty water tank as with the Nespresso Pixie.
2. Fastest coffee maker for a crowd ? BUNN GRB Velocity Home Coffee Brewer / Russell Hobbs Buckingham
The BUNN GRB Velocity Brew (available in the US, Canada, Australia and other countries) and Russell Hobbs Buckingham (available in the United Kingdom) can both make a delicious pot of coffee containing 4 to 10 cups within 3 – 5 minutes. It comes with a stainless steel internal water tank, so you have hot water ready to brew your coffee at any time. The BUNN coffee machine also comes with a spout design that makes it easier to pour your coffee without messiness.
However, it’s a bit bulky and might feel flimsy at first sight, although it does the job well. With the BUNN GRB Velocity, you can look forward to smooth, rich, and pleasant coffee without any unpleasant bitter or burnt flavors. It is one of the fastest coffee machines, particularly for a filter coffee maker. But if you consider having 9 extra cups of coffee on the go, you’ve got a great bargain. The superior brewing process and great tasting result is one reason Bunn remains one of the best-selling coffee makers globally.
The Russell Hobbs coffee maker allows you to brew 1, 2 or 4 cups of coffee whereas the BUNN coffee maker allows only 2 choices – 4 cup or 10 cup. For our money, if you’ve chosen or want a filter coffee machine having a 1 or 2 cup option doesn’t really make sense – for such small quantities we’d go with a french press.
