Technivorm Moccamaster

$309 from Amazon

The trick to brewing exceptional coffee, experts say, is making sure the water stays a consistent 195 to 205 degrees Fahrenheit. And this Dutch coffee machine is one of the few that manages to do so consistently, according to tests. Two potential drawbacks say otherwise-satisfied owners: It's bigger than your average coffee maker and can be a little clunky to use.

Baratza Virtuoso+ Conical Burr Coffee Grinder

$249 from Amazon
Shop Now

Serious coffee making starts with the proper grind — from fine espresso to coarse cold brew — and only a burr coffee grinder will deliver that range. The Baratza Virtuoso Plus is definitely on the pricey side, but it's about as close to pro-grade as you can get without breaking the bank. A cheaper option, the Oxo Conical Burr Coffee Grinder ($100), is almost as good according to reviewers, but it's frequently sold out.
