The Aerobee Aeropress is made out of high quality polypropylene plastic which makes it durable. Unlike most coffee makers, the Aeropress can take a beating so you can toss it in your bag and and bring it anywhere you need it. The Aeropress even has an included pouch where you can carry all the parts so you are ready to brew coffee anywhere you have hot water. See More
It requires the use of disposable filters to make a cup of coffee. It's quite affordable though, because 700 paper filters only cost around $10. As such, it will hardly drain your savings but if you want a reusable metal filter to reduce your waste and expenses, third party manufacturers can provide them at around $10 each. See More
The Aeropress makes use of manually applied pressure to force-filter coffee grounds. During the process, the Aeropress allows you to tweak the pressure, water temperature, ground size, pouring rate and timing which results in a very customized flavor. This feature inspired coffee-making competitions such as the Aeropress Cup to make the best cup of coffee using only the Aerobie Areopress. See More
The KONA French Press is designed to last for years, unlike lower quality alternatives that rarely last for several months. With proper care, the KONA French Press is good for everyday use due to its borosilicate glass construction that provides durability and prevents cracking. See More
The DeLonghi Magnifica has a hot plate at the top, which allows you to keep multiple cups at the same temperature. This helps when serving your guests, because the first cup won't cool down before the others, allowing everyone to enjoy the same great taste. See More
Not only is the DeLonghi Magnifica smaller than most espresso machines, but it also has a built in burr coffee grinder. This gives it the functionality of both a coffee grinder and a coffee maker, so you won’t need to get a separate coffee grinder. See More
The Mocaster operates at 196–205º F, allowing it to extract the best possible flavor from your ground coffee. The extraction is further improved by the per-immersion drip-style system, which helps the coffee bloom. This creates a drink that has a deep flavor and feels very smooth to drink, but isn't overpowering. See More
This coffee maker has a few plastic parts containing BPA, which can be a deal breaker for people who want their appliances to be completely free of harmful substances. Fortunately, these parts never touch the water or the coffee grounds, so you won't ever need to worry about any BPA ending up in your coffee. See More
This coffee maker uses a capsule system, which removes some of the required steps for making a delicious cup of coffee. You won't need to select beans or grind them, all you need to do is choose the capsule flavor, input one of the 6 preset settings on the touchscreen and pour a cup of coffee. See More
This coffeemaker comes with a stainless steel mesh filter that you can use more than once. Some people feel that it allows water to flow through the whole thing too quickly. Those people have found that you can just put a paper filter inside of the metal filter and be pretty happy. See More
The Bialetti Moka Pot gives you an easy way to make coffee on a camping trip. It's made using extremely durable aluminum, allowing it to take quite a beating. It can be heated using a portable gas stove, so you won't need a separate water heater, but you should avoid setting it on a campfire, since the coffee won't turn out so great due to the uneven heat distribution. See More
This coffee maker can produce coffee with an exceptionally strong taste, which surpasses coffee made by any drip coffee maker, but falls slightly short of a true espresso. This taste is achieved thanks to the pot's design and the way the coffee is brewed. See More
The Hario Technica is a very flashy, unique-looking coffee maker, making it a great conversation starter especially in social gatherings. The brewing process alone is its own spectacle: resembling a science experiment more than making coffee. This is because the Hario Technica uses an open flame to force water up through the filter and mix with the coffee. When the flame is put out, a vacuum is created that force filters the coffee by pulling it down into the container that originally contained water. See More
It produces a cleaner and more flavorful cup of coffee because of the cloth filter used, which is better than traditional paper filters. The method of making a cup of coffee using a siphon works on the principle of a vacuum. The process starts when the vacuum pressure caused by heating the water up and cooling it down pulls the water through the coffee grounds and through the cloth coffee filter. See More
Unlike other pressurized coffee makers which can only produce one cup at a time, the Hario Technica utilizes the concept of a vacuum to produce a similar flavorful coffee but in higher volumes. This means that you can spend less time making everyone a cup of coffee and more time enjoying it. See More
Although made from a relatively strong kind of glass, the Hario Technica will break if dropped. With this, you have to be careful where you put it down because its round shape makes it susceptible to roll away. Also, do not toss it in the dishwasher because it is not dishwasher-safe. See More
