Though they don't produce drinks that will make coffee purists wax poetic, capsule-type coffeemakers are handy to have around for that one quick cup. And you can't knock these machines for their simplicity and the variety of beverages they produce, from Colombian morning joe to chai and hot chocolate. The best of the lot is this touchscreen Keurig brewer, which uses an updated, more recycle-friendly version of the K-Cup. Just pop in a Vue pack, tap the screen a few times, and you're in business.
