Oceanrich Drip Coffee Maker (P6,805) from Lavida Coffee
We recently listed some stylish white home finds with wooden accents perfect for your minimalist or Scandinavian-style space and this battery-powered coffee machine from online store Lavida Coffee would fit right in with that interior style. It combines the ease of a drip coffee maker with the more precise method of a pour-over brew by swirling hot water over your coffee grounds the way you would normally do manually when employing the latter method. The white-and-wood device would look right at home on your curated coffee nook.
Bear Coffee Machine KFJ-A05F1 (P7,899) from Lahome Outlet
This Bear coffee machine from Lahome Outlet is probably one of the most unique brewing devices we’ve ever seen. The vintage-meets-minimalist design features a water dispenser on one side and a stainless steel funnel on the other. The heating tube in the middle connects the two and transports hot water one from one side to the other, resulting in freshly brewed drip coffee.

Coffee capsule machines have become increasingly popular as it allows you to make coffee with ease. It also lets you try out a variety of brands, flavors, and coffee-based drinks. If you’ve been meaning to get your own, we found one that won’t break your budget: B. Coffee Co’s Freshman Capsule Coffee Machine is only P2,999! They have different coffee capsules (P259/pack of 10 capsules) that you can try out, but don’t worry about your options being limited because the machine is Nespresso capsule-compatible, too.
Petrus PE3320 Italian Espresso Machine (P7,999) from Cozy Room
While drip coffee machines are a reliable option for home brewing, espresso machines are the way to go if you really want to recreate the café experience under your roof. This Petrus espresso maker, which you can get from online shop Cozy Room, is at the top of our wish list thanks to its gorgeous teal exterior, bronze-gold details, and overall retro design. It’ll extract strong, concentrated coffee from your choice of grounds—perfect for true-blue caffeine addicts. It even has a milk frother attached so you can create lattes, macchiatos, and other coffee-based drinks.
Lattissima Touch Coffee Maker (P27,000) from Nespresso
When it comes to #aesthetic coffee machines, Nespresso is probably one of the first brands that comes to mind for most. They’ve got several devices in their lineup, but we’re currently eyeing the Lattissima, which sports a sleek, futuristic design in a clean neutral shade that would work for most interior styles. The all-in-one capsule device lets you create espressos, lattes, cappuccinos, macchiatos, and more with the easy-to-use one-touch operation and milk frother on the side.

It allows you to adjust the concentration of the coffee and the temperature of the water right from your phone so you get your perfect brew every time with no fuss.

The device supports several brands of capsules and pods available on the market, so you can choose from a variety of flavors and blends that would best suit your preferences and fit your budget.
Clio Coffee Machine (P9,990) from Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf
Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf’s Clio coffee maker keeps it simple with a slim, black-and-white design and user-friendly features.

Planit Home Espresso Maker (P20,710) from La Table de Zorba
The Planit Home Espresso Maker, which we first spotted on a Facebook post from local blogger Lois Cozy Life, comes straight from South Korea and fittingly, it sports the kind of soft, minimalist design commonly associated with Korean-style interior design. The IG-worthy device features a pristine white exterior with light wooden accents. It’s perfect for kitchen counters or coffee nooks filled with sleek appliances and decked out in delicate, neutral tones. Plus, it’s a huge step up from the usual drip coffee makers most people have at home and naturally, the espresso it makes is closer to the strong, aromatic brews you can get at your go-to café.

We love the old-school design of this Donlim coffee machine, which is perfect for any household that appreciates a strong, freshly brewed espresso. It even has a milk-frothing attachment, so you can whip up espresso-based lattes, macchiatos, flat whites, and more. The teal exterior and shiny gold details would look so pretty on your kitchen counter.
