Coffee Maker Reviews - What's Your Preference?

Aug 17, 2007
Choosing the right coffee maker for you becomes a personal choice in the end considering every person's tastes are different. The good news though is there is such a wide and varied number of coffee makers available that choice may finally rely on recommendation.

Coffee maker reviews are available from many sources. Online, manufacturers, sellers and coffee enthusiasts. The best coffee maker reviews undoubtedly come from independent sources and you will need to distinguish between whether a reviewer has a vested interest or is simply a real fan of a particular brand.

What Type Of Coffee Drinker Are You?

Coffee types have increased significantly in recent years. In fact, you almost need to be a Rhodes Scholar to know and learn every style of coffee drink on the market. Marketing has played a big part in the promotion of coffee as more than just a hit of caffeine. Coffee has become a fashionable subject; no longer is it just a black liquid you drink first thing in the morning. Now you get a choice: cafe latte, espresso, cappuccino, flat white, short black, flavored and the list goes on.

Coffee makers come in all shapes and sizes today. The most popular form of maker in the United States is undoubtedly the automatic drip machine. You simply place ground coffee in a filter which then is placed in the top compartment of the machine before switching it on. Coffee then filters it's way into a glass container and you've got yourself several cups. It's quick, clean and effective and for most, produces a satisfying cup of brew in a hurry.

Coffee Machines Have Made An Impact

There are lots of coffee maker reviews available and in recent times these reviews have centered on coffee machines once only available at your favorite cafe. These machines come in all shapes and sizes including the single cup makers to the bigger automatic models which can "pump" out almost any style of coffee you wish at the press of a button. We live in the computer age and an age where we want things quickly so it was inevitable that coffee machines would eventually be targeted with this technology. They can be a little costly but there is no doubt they are a great time saver and more importantly, produce an excellent cup of whatever coffee you're after.

The Stainless Steel Percolator

Coffee maker reviews wouldn't be complete if we didn't give the stainless steel percolator a mention. This is still my favorite. I grew up drinking coffee produced from these little stove top "machines" and I'm yet to be convinced I've tasted better coffee from any other form of maker. The idea is similar to the automatic drip machine although water is placed in a bottom compartment while the ground coffee is placed in a rounded cavity linked to a spout that is submerged into the water. The coffee is eventually filtered into a top compartment and arrives amid a blaze of steam and loud hissing noise, almost like an volcanic eruption. A gentle stir of the finished product within the percolator and you pour. Then you enjoy!

The French press is another popular form of coffee maker and in fact, it wasn't long ago when "the black liquid" was entering the fashionable age, the French press was considered an essential part of a home's decor landscape. I lost count of the number of French press makers I received for christmas! It has a simple concept. Ground coffee is placed into a plunger covered by a screen. After hot water is poured over the grounds and left for a short period the plunger is then pushed downwards into the cylinder and what rises to the top is filtered coffee. Many people still prefer the flavor of this style of maker.

I'm still a steel percolator "nut" but as mentioned earlier, each individual will have his or her preferences and one thing's for sure, there is likely to be coffee maker out there for everyone!
