large coffee maker

Do you need coffee? We mean, alot of coffee?

If you do, then you’ve come to the right place. We’ve written about the best compact coffee makers before, but we know that some people need more than just 8-10 cups. Sometimes, you need dozens.

Coffee is a popular drink. There’s no denying that. Whether people have theirs brewed in the morning at their home or whether they grab it from a coffee shop on the way to work, coffee is essential. To be truthful, many people drink coffee all day, morning or not.

So, for those of you with bigger coffee needs, we’ve created a list of the best large coffee makers. This is a diverse list, starting with large urns then moving to traditional drip makers. We’ll cover the French press and percolators, as well as a cold brew option. If you go camping, we have you covered as well. Take your time and figure out what your needs are. We have you covered for personal and commercial use.

Party and Commercial Coffee Makers

Sometimes a regular coffee maker just won’t cut it. What happens when you have to serve dozens of people? If you cater or have an office that indulges in a bunch of caffeine, you may want to consider getting some larger coffee makers or urns.

1. 40-Cup Hamilton Beach Brew Station

This is a great looking coffee station. We love it when coffee and good looks area combined. This has a professional look that will work well in an office environment. It has grip handles on the sides so it can be carried easily. This Hamilton Beach is easy to clean, despite its size.

When you want to fill up a cup (or 40 of them), you just press your mug up to the dispense button and fill it up. There is an indicator light on the side so you know when the coffee is ready to serve.

The only downside we found with this machine is the need to use solid cups. We know many office spaces use paper cups for coffee, but they tend to collapse on themselves when pressed against the dispense button.

This urn has some plastic parts as opposed to the all metal urns you usually see for coffee machines. Overall, this is a good product that will give you what you are looking for.

2. Hamilton Beach Commercial 60-Cup Stainless-Steel Urn

Hamilton Beach is back again, this time with their stainless-steel coffee urn. If you need some serious coffee carrying capability, this 60-cup urn will give it to you. The handles make this urn easy to carry and easy to clean. We love that there is a water window on the front so we know exactly how much coffee is still inside. There are lights to tell you when it is on and when it is ready. The cup dispense button presses easily against all kinds of cups, but you should be a little careful when using paper cups.

This urn looks amazing and will be a great fit for your kitchen or office.

3. West Bend 100-Cup Commercial Coffee Urn

Okay, so you need some serious coffee power. Maybe you host really large events. If that is the case, this 100-cup commercial coffee urn by West Bend will work well for you. Not only does it look great, it functions as it should.

We love the level gauge on the front, letting you know when it is about time for a fill up. All of the components of this urn are removable and dish washer safe.

For your really large gatherings, the West Bend urn is the way to go.
