Top 5 Best Drip Coffee Makers Coffee Resource If you caught our post discussing different types of coffee makers, you might have noticed that we didn’t include drip coffee makers. That’s because drip coffee makers aren’t exactly the superstars of the coffee-brewing world. Most drip machines just aren’t designed to make great coffee—but we’ve found the exceptions to that rule! Here are 5 of the best drip coffee makers money can buy—including a new favorite of ours! 1. Bonavita BV1900TS Coffee Brewer ($92- $133) For the busy coffee snob Aside from the convenience features (one-touch brewing, dishwasher-safe components, an optional thermal carafe to keep coffee hot), Bonavita’s 8-cup drip coffee maker is a marvel of coffee connoisseur-ship. It offers a “powerful and precise” water heater to maintain an optimal brewing temperature of 195°-205°F, and includes a “pre-infusion” button that blooms the coffee for you. The flat-bottomed filter basket allows for even saturation and uniform extraction of the grounds, meaning your coffee will be consistently easy and delicious every morning. 2. Cuisinart DCC-3200AMZ PerfecTemp ($61) For the anti-DIY type Love waking up to the smell of freshly brewed coffee? Hate cleaning? Have a hard time remembering to turn things off? Have we got a coffee maker for you. This little treasure from Cuisinart offers 24-hour programmability, a self-cleaning feature that tells you when it’s time to run it, and a programmable auto-shutoff option. As if this budget-friendly brewer didn’t have enough going for it already, it also has the ability to make a 14-cup pot or just 1-4 cups at a time. And don’t forget the most important part: the coffee itself will be nice and hot thanks to PerfecTemp technology, and it can be as bold as you like, courtesy of a button that literally says “Bold”—brew strength control has never been simpler. 3. Hamilton Beach 49980A Coffee Brewer ($59) For the coffee-lover who can’t make up their mind You can have the best of both worlds with brand giant Hamilton Beach’s 49980A. Single serving or 12-cup pot? Glass carafe or your favorite travel mug? Ground coffee or soft pods? This coffee machine does it all. Featuring 24-hour programmability and an auto shut-off that can keep a burner going for 2 hours after it turns off, you can have hot coffee waiting for you whenever you want—dangerous . . . but why settle for anything less? 4. Bunn GRB Velocity Brew ($99) For the most impatient coffee-lovers If you need your caffeine fix, like, yesterday, this is the drip machine for you. One of the fastest machines on the market, the Bunn GBR brews a full pot (4-10 cups!) in just 3 minutes, thanks to an always-hot reservoir of water in the tank. The state-of-the-art water funneling system allows for an even saturation of the coffee grounds, and this super efficient machine even cleans up after itself, wicking dribbles of coffee back into the carafe instead of dotting them all over your counter. 5. Technivorm Moccamaster 79212 KBTS ($299) For the caffeinated environmentalist Last but not least, we have our new favorite from Technivorm! This 4-cup drip coffee maker comes with a stainless steel, heat-preserving carafe and is individually tested to ensure that consumers only receive the best. It’s also certified by the Specialty Coffee Association (SCA), so you know you can trust your specialty beans with this machine. Brewing with this Technivorm machine is nice and quiet for those peaceful mornings, and brews a full pot in just under 6 minutes. It utilizes a proprietary copper boiling element that maintains the perfect brewing temperature—essential for the best flavor extraction possible. This coffee maker isn’t just great for your coffee, though—it’s also great for the environment! Everything from the packaging material to the brewer itself is 100% recyclable, and all of the plastic components are BPA, BPS, BPF, and phthalate-free!
