A Word of Caution
It can be difficult to find American made coffee makers in today’s market. We have rounded up and reviewed 6 coffee makers made in the USA!
Note that searching “made in USA” on major retailer websites does NOT provide accurate results.
To be 100% sure that a product is made in the United States, you must visit the product website for the most accurate information or view the packaging.
If you click the “search example” above, it quickly becomes clear that the majority of the coffee machines listed were not made in the US.
What Qualifies a Product as “Made in USA” ?
The FTC states that, “For a product to be called Made in USA, or claimed to be of domestic origin without qualifications or limits on the claim, the product must be “all or virtually all” made in the U.S.
The term “United States,” as referred to in the Enforcement Policy Statement, includes the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and the U.S. territories and possessions.”
Review of Important Coffee Maker Features
1) BREWING CAPACITY
Do you want a single serving coffee maker or a coffee pot that can make up to 12 cups? Do you want a grind and brew machine or will you purchase pre-ground coffee beans?
Is the coffee maker constructed of plastic or metal? Metal coffee machines will be more durable and last much longer, but for gentle usage a plastic coffee maker will work out fine.
3) MANUFACTURING LOCATION
Purchasing a coffee maker made in the USA will support local businesses and can be purchased with the comfort of knowing that top-notch quality controls are enforced throughout the manufacturing process. Kudos for supporting American made goods!

- Where are Bunn Coffee Makers made?
Assembled in Creston, Iowa.
- Who owns Bunn-O-Mattic Corporation?
Bunn-O-Mattic was founded by George Bunn, the inventor of the fluted coffee filter, in the 1950s. Today it’s a fifth generation family business.
What is the difference between the Bunn GR Velocity vs the Bunn BX Velocity?
They both offer the same exact functionality and features, however the back of the BX is silver and rounded while the GR is more square-like and black.
The Bunn BT Coffee Maker is very similar to the BX and GR versions.
The main difference is that it has a stainless steel double-insulated coffee carafe that will keep coffee hot for up to two hours and it does not come with a warming plate.
The other 2 coffee makers come with a glass carafe and porcelain warming plate.
Otherwise, the features and the brewing methods are exactly the same.
Coffee Makers NOT Made in China
For those that would like buy a coffee maker made in the USA, but can’t seem find one that has all the features you’re looking for – there are many high quality coffee machines NOT made in China which can often have lax manufacturing standards. There are excellent coffee makers made in variety of countries including England, France, Italy, Germany, Japan and more.
Be very careful when conducting research as to where a product is made. For example, many of the coffee makers on Amazon claim to be “Made in Germany” because the glass they use is German glass, but the actual product is still manufactured in China.
Note: A product can be designed in country A, made up of materials from countries B, C, D – but ultimately still manufactured in China.
