Justina Cheng, author of one of the books named best by Kirkus Reviews and Barnes & Noble, once said, “Adventure in life is good; consistency in coffee even better.”
Drinking coffee is no longer a morning habit these days; it is already a lifestyle. We bond with our friends over a cup of cappuccino. We study with the help of espresso. And we enjoy solitude by sipping our macchiato.
While there are lots of coffee shops anywhere, many still opt to make theirs at home. And although instant coffees are out in the market, nothing beats brewing your own. But how do we get the consistency that we want with our coffee?
Brewing your own coffee entails having your choice of coffee grounds and of course your coffee maker. Today, let’s go over the top three best coffee makers out in the market:
- Bonavita BV1900TS
While Bonavita BV1900TS is not striking on the outside (it does not have any LED or lights but a single button for turning it on and off), many reviews have said that when it comes to coffee drip brewing, this is a champ.
BV1900TS brews coffee straightforwardly. Preparing your coffee would only take opening the water tank lid, pouring a portion of water, adding coffee grounds into the brew basket, positioning it over the thermal flask, and finally flipping the switch. The water from BV1900TS drains fast, which is a good sign. For instance, it only takes six minutes to create a full 45-ounce pot of coffee, and this is under the eight-minute (or less) suggestion from the Specialty Coffee Association of America (SCAA). Finally, BV1900TS runs very hot, which is what makes a coffee maker’s resume topnotch; it reaches the 200-degree mark (Fahrenheit) after about 2 minutes for the rest of the brewing cycle.
All in all, BV1900TS makes good coffee even when using challenging coffee grounds, and if you’ll use better coffee grounds, there’s a big chance you’re in for your best homemade drip coffee ever.
- Mr. Coffee DRX5 4-Cup Programmable Coffeemaker
Just like the BV1900TS, this Mr. Coffee unit also makes brewing simple but satisfying palette-wise. Just set it up, turn it on, and brew! Because of its size, Mr. Coffee DRX5 is best for a single person or a couple.
But just like the saying “great things come in small packages,” this compact coffee maker has great features, too. For instance, this four-cup coffee maker brags of its newly designed “Pause n Serve” feature. This allows you to pour a cup of coffee while the machine is still brewing. Apart from this, the unit also has an auto-pause brewing system. With this, you can easily remove the flask and avoid any possible spill! Mr. Coffee DRX5 also has Delay Brew feature for up to 24 hours in advance, which means you do not have to make your cup every morning! Lastly, the coffee maker automatically turns after an hour of being idle. So if you are a busy person that has no time for complicated brewing of your coffee and is too occupied for coffee-related-tasks, then Mr. Coffee DRX5 is for you!
- De’Longhi 12-Cup Coffee Maker
Originally from Italy, De’Longhi has a long list of appliances, and this includes the De’Longhi 12-Cup Coffee Maker. Most of its best features, such as the 24-hour programmable digital timer and auto shut down, are the same with Mr. Coffee DRX5, but instead of four cups, you get twelve. So if you have a big family and everyone likes to drink coffee first thing in the morning but does not want to wake up early to prepare, then this is best for you.
More than the taste, this coffee maker also makes it a point to boost your drink’s aroma through its special time-release process that saturates the coffee grounds a little to extract the best flavor and aroma from your coffee. Unlike other coffee makers, De’Longhi 12-Cup Coffee Maker has a permanent gold-tone filter that keeps even the finest grounds out of your coffee. This also has the unique front access design. With this, you can simply pull the handle of the machine for easy access to the water and coffee filter.
With these three coffee makers, consistency in coffee is no longer a question. Do you agree with me that these are the three best coffee makers? Comment below to let me know. 🙂
