Few things are as important in the morning as a good cup of coffee. And in the competitive world of Airbnb rentals, having complimentary coffee or tea on hand can set your listing ahead of the competition. 

But coffee makers are even more plentiful than Airbnb listings. So what is the best coffee maker for Airbnb properties and what accessories do you need with yours? We will help you with all these questions and point you to the right gear to make your Airbnb a smashing success worthy of Starbucks. 

What Are the Best Coffee Makers for Airbnb Properties?

Before purchasing a coffee maker, you should keep in mind the type of Airbnb host you are and the type of property you have listed. If you list a single room, you might want to look at a single-use product. When you have a full house on Airbnb, you may want a coffee maker that makes an entire coffee pot for every guest.

Once you know what you are looking for, you can check out our list to see some of the best coffee makers on the market. 

Keurig K-Classic

Sale
Keurig K-Classic Coffee Maker K-Cup Pod, Single Serve, Programmable, 6 to 10 oz. Brew Sizes, Black
  • Brews multiple k-cup pod sizes: (6, 8, 10 ounce) – the most popular k-cup pod brew sizes. Use the 6 ounce brew size to achieve the strongest brew.
  • Large 48 ounce water reservoir: Allows you to brew 6 plus cups before having to refill, saving you time and simplifying your morning routine. The water reservoir is removable, making it easy to refill whenever you need to.
  • Descaling: An important part of cleaning your keurig brewer. This process helps to remove calcium deposits, or scale, that can build up inside a coffee maker over time.
  • Auto-off: An auto-off feature is easily programmed to turn off your coffee maker after it has been idle for 2 hours, helping to save energy.
  • Simple button controls: Just insert a pod, select your desired cup brew size, and brew a great-tasting cup in under a minute.

Keurig has exploded on the market as a favorite single-serve coffee maker for both homes and offices. And as such, it is also a common fixture in vacation rentals. The Keurig K-Classic has that iconic design of Keurig’s coffee makers and comes with all the bells and whistles.

Though it is a single-serve device, it has a sizable 48-ounce water reservoir, meaning it is quite easy to brew a second or third cup of coffee in quick succession. The brewing time is quite quick, as it only takes a minute or two until you have fresh coffee in your cup.

Best of all, this coffee maker can also make tea or hot chocolate. This flexibility makes it a good one-stop-shop for a guest’s hot drink needs and will give your Airbnb’s amenities an extra dimension.

As one might expect, this product uses K-cups and will work with any pod that is officially designated as a K-cup by Keurig. You can leave out several varieties of K-cup pods for your guests to give your guests a variety of choice. We recommend laying out some decaf and tea varieties to satiate every palette.

The K-Classic is easy to use, with only five buttons, meaning you likely will not have to deal with too many questions about how to operate it. And the machine alerts you when it needs a deep cleaning, so you always know when maintenance needs to be done.

Overall, this is an excellent coffee machine for single rooms or entire houses. Its usage of K-cup pods means it is ideal for solo travelers, while its relatively fast brew time will get coffee to entire groups quickly.

If you rent out an entire house to a large group of people, it might be time to ditch the single-use disposable cups and purchase a drip coffee machine. This drip coffee maker from Cuisinart is the perfect way for your group of guests to get a hot pot of coffee in the morning. 

This machine is simple to use and comes with numerous useful features. It is entirely programmable, so guests can set it to have a hot carafe full of coffee ready when they wake up. And if they miss their alarm, it keeps coffee hot for up to four hours, ensuring your Airbnb guests will never be without a delicious pot of coffee even if they take a trip outdoors.

Unlike single-serve machines, this drip coffee machine from Cuisinart will serve a whole house full of people at once.

In place of K-cups, you will have to provide your guests with pre-ground coffee or whole beans they can grind themselves. You will also need to provide filters and regularly clean the carafe. But if your Airbnb is on the larger side or tends to attract groups, this is a great option that will save money in the long run.

Hamilton Beach Brewstation

Hamilton Beach Brewstation Dispensing Coffee Maker with 12 Cup Internal Brew Pot, Water Reservoir, Black with Chrome
  • FRESH FLAVOR LONGER — NO BURNT OR SCORCHED COFFEE: The coffee maker's internal warming heater keeps coffee warm and fresh for hours. It works without a carafe or heating plate so coffee won't burn or scorch. The result is fresh, tastier coffee for longer.
  • QUICK, EASY DISPENSING WITHOUT THE CARAFE: This dispensing coffee maker eliminates the carafe and replaces it with fast, easy dispensing. Without a carafe, there's no breaking, no spilling, no burnt coffee flavor, and no cleaning baked-on coffee stains
  • HOT COFFEE WHEN YOU'RE READY ONE FRESH CUP AT A TIME: The 12 cup coffee maker dispenses hot coffee directly into a cup or a travel mug whenever you're ready for a cup by simply pressing the dispensing bar
  • ULTIMATE BREWING CONTROL: The brew strength selector has 4 options: bold, regular, 1-4 cups for small batches, and iced coffee. The blue-backlit programmable clock is easy to see and can be set up to 24 hours in advance for wake-up ready coffee
  • AUTO SHUTOFF FOR PEACE OF MIND: The automatic shutoff time on this Hamilton Beach coffee maker can be programmed for up to 4 hours after brewing, so you don't have to worry about turning the machine off

The Brewstation from Hamilton Beach is a good compromise between a single-serve machine and drip machines that fill an entire carafe. This machine is well-suited for Airbnbs expecting solo travelers as it will give a cup of Joe without needing expensive pods that end up cluttering up the trash. And Hamilton Beach has built a reputation for delivering great-tasting, barista-quality brews straight from a coffee shop.

This machine works like a typical drip coffee maker but will only make a single cup of coffee. The device holds water internally, meaning it can be ready at a guest’s convenience. Unlike the model from Cuisinart, this does not come with a carafe. While that might sound like a disadvantage, it does ensure you won’t have to worry about a guest accidentally breaking it and shattering glass everywhere.

The coffee machine has four brew strength options, giving guests the chance to make bolder cups or prepare iced coffee. It is also simple to use with only four buttons, but it comes with all the programmability features guests will want from a coffee maker. 

As it can only serve a single guest at a time, this is a better option for those hosting a small number of people. It should also be noted that though the taste is impressive, it may not compare to other more expensive models on the market.

What Accessories Do You Need With Your Coffee Maker?

When putting out a coffee machine, you should prepare to include several accessories to satisfy your guests and the type of coffee they want in the morning. After all, having plenty of accessories laid out will help make guests feel at home.

If you purchase a Keurig or other device using single-serve cups, you need to keep the coffee area stocked with pods. We recommend having different types on hand, including non-coffee options like tea or hot chocolate. You also will not go wrong with supplying decaffeinated coffee for guests who may be averse to caffeine.

If you have a drip or pour-over machine, you must keep a supply of filters and coffee available. You can either set up pre-ground coffee or, for a fancier option, whole beans, and a coffee grinder. A grinder is more expensive up front, but it will give people staying at your Airbnb the flavor of freshly-ground coffee in the morning.

No matter the machine, there are other accessories to consider investing in. For instance, putting out a creamer like Mr. Coffee and sugar might be welcomed, and it won’t hurt to provide guests with an assortment of stirrers and disposable cups. 

Conclusion

No matter the type of vacation rental, your guests will want to feel at home. And what better way to feel at home than with good coffee in the morning. Choosing the best coffee maker for Airbnb properties is crucial, and it is an excellent way to increase word-of-mouth advertising and good reviews on your listing.

With one of these Airbnb coffee makers on hand, your place is sure to thrill guests who love a brew on their vacation.
