While having breakfast at Alpha Donuts in Sunnyside, a retro greasy spoon restaurant about a 20 minute train ride away from midtown Manhattan, the phrase “retro coffee maker” stuck in our heads. Alpha Donuts still maintained the 50s look with authentic and retro furniture and equipment.
Retro seemed cool, and we went ahead to find a retro coffee maker for our home office. Here are seven retro coffee makers in assorted colors that will definitely bring the WOW factor to your morning coffee as well.
No more boring black and white coffee makers. You may be tempted to get one for yourself if you’re looking to put some colors and excitement to your morning wake-up coffee ritual.
Espressione Cafe Retro Espresso Machines
We found this in Target and Amazon.com. The Espressione Café Retro Espresso Machine in red is pretty but gets only 3-star reviews on Amazon.com and Target website. It sure will be a conversation piece in your kitchen if you have friends over for dinner. It’s an espresso machine with an 18-bar pump and quick recovery 24-ounce boiler. Most importantly it is simple to use and it holds water for up to 24 shots.
DeLonghi Kmix Drip Coffee Maker
The words ‘gorgeous’ and ‘coffee maker’ don’t always go together, but in the case of the DeLonghi Kmix Drip Coffee Maker, they go together perfectly. This retro coffee maker comes in eight colors including red, green, magenta and the yellow depicted above. The DeLonghi maker has primarily positive reviews and can be found on Amazon.com. It has a 10-cup capacity and is made of a die-cast aluminum exterior.
Whitbread Wilkinson PA271 Pantone Coffee Maker
This coffee maker from Whitbread Wilkinson has a “classic Italian design” and is meant to look stylish while making refreshing Espresso. Made from cast aluminum, it gets primarily good reviews for its classic look and quality, although beware as many reviewers claimed that the color of the “vintage blue” coffee maker in the photo is a bit off. Get this coffee maker here on Amazon.com. This may be used on electric or gas stovetops and makes your espresso in less than five minutes.
MaxiMatic 3-in-1 Deluxe Toaster Oven/Griddle/Coffee Maker
This jack-of-all-trades 3-in-1 combines a toaster oven, griddle and coffee maker into one compact and stylish package. Another plus of this all in one appliance is that it only costs around $44. It has an easy to clean swing-out filter compartment. We find it most suitable for a person who has a small kitchen or people on RV road trips. It has 4-cup capacity, more than enough for a typical to-go coffee mug. Get it here on Amazon.com.

This 12-cup coffee maker is suitable for entertaining friends and family. You can prepare your coffee in advance due to its ability to keep your coffee warm for two hours.

Icona Vintage Eco V310.AZ
If you are looking for a great looking coffee maker that makes authentic Italian espresso, your search has just ended. This is it! Get it here on the DeLonghi website and on Amazon.com. DeLonghi uses the most advanced technology that guarantees a perfect cup of espresso in every cup. It comes with a 2-in-1 cream disk filter suitable for ground coffee, a “cappuccino system”, cup warmer and a removable water reservoir.
Cuisinart 12-Cup Pink Programmable Coffee Maker
The Cuisinart coffee maker comes with a 3 year warranty and is made to last. This pink programmable coffee maker comes with a 12-cup carafe with a dripless spout. To us, that is an important feature because we hate the pains of cleaning spilled coffee and having a messy countertop. It has a 24-hour programmable, and adjustable auto shut off from 0 to 4 hours and allows you to program the coffee maker so you can wake up to a freshly brewed cup of coffee every morning.
