Do you love coffee but struggle to get the taste right at home? Do you want a simple, fuss-free way to brew your favourite beans? Look no further than a filter coffee maker. These machines are easy to use and a breeze to clean, brewing great tasting coffee again and again.
- Timer: One of the best things about filter coffee machines is you can set them to brew coffee ready for when you wake up. When browsing for a device, check to make sure it has this feature. You can get a good idea of how easy the machine will be to programme from the pictures.
- Capacity: Think about how many cups of coffee you’ll want to make at one time. If you drink a lot of the stuff, like to make batches to put in the fridge, or have lots of coffee-loving friends and family, look for a machine with a large jug so you can make multiple cups at once. If you will just want a drink or two, choose a maker with a smaller pot—or even a single cup maker—to minimise waste. Most machines will keep your brew warm for around 40 minutes, so consider how many cups you’re likely to drink in that amount of time.
- Filters: Some filter machines come with permanent filters built into them. For others, you’ll need to use filter papers. Permanent filters take a little longer to clean, or you’ll need to keep a supply of papers handy. Check the specs to see whether the makers have built-in filters and choose a machine that will suit your cleaning needs.
