White is one of the most popular kitchen colors for the walls, cabinets, and accents. Adding a white coffee maker to your kitchen enhances its stylish and fresh look. It also adds to the warmth and the welcoming feeling.
A white coffee maker will match your other white kitchen appliances such as the fridge, microwave, washer, and food processor. It will fit in both retro white and modern kitchens.
In this post, I review the six best white coffee makers that make great coffee and add to the timeless yet fresh look of your kitchen or office.
1. Keurig K-Select Matte White
This matte white Keurig K-Select has a classic and warm look. It is a compact brewer that does not take up a lot of space. It measures 11.6 x 9.2 x 12.5 inches.
Whether you want a homebrewer or a coffee maker for the office or a college dorm, the K-Select ticks all the boxes.

You can also brew your coffee straight into a travel mug by removing the drip tray to fit up to a 7.4-inch travel mug under the K-Select. The removable drip tray is big enough to hold up to one cup of coffee just in case you accidentally forget to replace your cup when brewing.
The Keurig K-Select is easy to set up and use. The control buttons are easy to understand. It features a brew control feature in case you want a strong brew or for over-ice coffee. See the other Keurigs that are great for iced coffee.
You can program the K-Select to automatically shut down to save on energy. You can also raise or lower the brewing temperature using the high-altitude setting.
The add water light alerts you when the water level is below the recommended level. It also has a descaling light that comes on when it’s time to decalcify the coffee maker.

This matte white Keurig coffee maker is easy to clean. The exterior is made of plastic that is easy to clean and does not stain easily.
Be sure to wipe the exterior of the coffee maker with a damp microfiber cloth after brewing. Also, flush and dry the drip tray after brewing to prevent staining.
If you notice coffee stains on the external plastic parts of your coffee maker, use baking soda or white vinegar to clean the stains.

The white Hamilton Beach Flexibrew is a dual coffee maker that makes carafe coffee and single cups. It has two independent water tanks for the two brewers.
The brew control feature and programmable auto-on work on both the single cups and the carafe brewers. This coffee maker comes with a 12-cup glass carafe and a warming plate.

The single-serve water tank’s maximum capacity is 14oz and the single-serve brewer brews all the water in the tank per brew cycle. So you only brew one cup at a time and refill the single-serve tank to brew a second cup.
However, it takes only 3 minutes to make a single cup so you don’t wait for long to make a second cup.
The carafe brewer uses flat bottom paper filters or a flat mesh filer basket. It has an auto-pause and pour capability so you can serve the coffee mid-cycle and continue brewing. The warming plate is preset to shut off two hours after brewing.

6. BUNN GRW Velocity Brew 10-Cup Home Coffee Brewer
Bunn velocity brew 10-cup coffee maker is a no-fuss easy-to-use coffee maker. Perhaps its biggest selling point which some people find odd is the absence of fancy features.
This coffee maker has only two buttons: one ON/OFF button for the heating plate and a second one for the internal heating tank which is located to the side of the brewer near the base.
Bunn velocity brew coffee maker uses a fast brew technology to make up to five cups of coffee in 4 minutes. It is a carafe brewer and comes with a glass carafe and a heating plate.
You can brew from four to 10 cups per brew cycle.
The carafe has an innovative spout that minimizes the chances of spilling coffee when pouring into your cup.
Although it does not have a brew control feature, it makes bold coffee and the coffee is usually hotter than what you get from the fancier homebrewers.
How to Use Bunn Coffee Maker
Bunn coffee makers are different from what you are probably used to and that’s where most people get it wrong because they expect them to work like the other coffee makers.
As I previously noted in this post, the Bunn velocity brew coffee maker has a separate ON/OFF button on the side for the internal heating tank. This button should always be ON unless you are not using the coffee maker for a few days.
This continuously keeps the internal water hot. When you want to brew coffee, you add fresh water to the water tank but the Bunn velocity brew coffee maker does not brew the coffee with this water.
Instead, this new water displaces the water in the internal tank which then flows to the filter basket, wets the grounds, and dissolves coffee solubles before dripping into the carafe.
So if the water in the internal tank is not hot, your coffee will be cold.
For clarity, unlike other homebrewers, the Bunn velocity brew coffee maker does not heat water when brewing as it uses the preheated water in the internal tank.
Another point to note is that this coffee maker starts brewing when you close the lid of the water tank. The water tank has a level that sticks out so the lid pushes this lever down which opens a valve at the bottom of the tank and releases the cold water which then flows to the heating tank.
So do not close the lid before replacing the carafe on the warming plate. Opening the water tank’s lid will stop the brewing process but coffee may continue dripping for a few seconds.
Common Problems with the Bunn Velocity Brew
Most people indicate that Bunn velocity brew spills coffee all over the heating plate. However, this is most likely caused by how they use the coffee maker as opposed to a design flaw. To prevent the brewer from spilling coffee:
- Do not open the water tank’s lid before placing the carafe on the warming plate
- Line the carafe properly with the dripper valve to avoid spills
- Use Bunn specific paper filters to avoid spills
- Place a mug under the dripper when pouring coffee from the carafe. The mug will collect the coffee that may continue dripping and prevent it from dropping on the warming plate
The warming plate is easy to clean so a few drops of coffee on it should not bother you too much.
Things to Remember When Using Bunn Velocity Brew
- Turn the heating plate off to save on energy if you are not using it to warm your coffee.
- Leave the heating tank on unless you are not likely to brew coffee for a couple of days. The reason you need to turn it off is that the water in the heating will continue heating and evaporate. Eventually, the heating element will overheat and get damaged
- Use Bunn paper filters
- First, add coffee to the brew basket and place a carafe under the brewer before closing the reservoir’s lid to avoid spills.
