Tips For Choosing A Coffee Maker For Your Kitchen

Aug 18, 2007
When it comes to choosing a coffee maker, your first area of concern will be to determine what type of coffee you want. There are numerous types of coffee makers all for making different types of coffee. For example, you may choose to purchase an automatic drip method coffee maker. When using an automatic drip coffee maker you will be able to brew between 6-12 cups of coffee. They provide a full-bodied, rich fragrant coffee and are very aromatic. You will need to choose between very fine and regular ground coffees for use in the coffee maker.

The percolator coffee maker brews coffee in about 15-20 minutes. You can make between 6-12 cups and the coffee is very rich and flavorful. When using a percolator coffee maker be sure to get the appropriate coffee filters or else grounds may pass through the filter.

A French Press or Plunger coffee maker makes a smaller amount of coffee per cup as compared to the percolator and automatic drip makers, however the coffee is very rich, full-bodied and strong. You will need to use regular or coarsely ground coffee and since there is no coffee filter, your coffee may appear cloudy, however it will be delicious.

An Espresso machine makes very delicious and smooth espresso. It takes about fifteen minutes to brew about five cups of espresso. Espresso is revered for its rich velvety flavor, however you will notice that all espresso is a bit muddy. When drinking espresso, it isn't uncommon to notice a fine bit of powdery residue at the bottom of the cup.

If you like flavored ground coffee, then you will be happy with all of the choices available on the market today. You can choose from organically grown coffee to instant coffee that needs nothing more than boiling water. There is also the choice to purchase your own coffee beans and grind them fresh.

You can do this in your local grocery store, or purchase a coffee grinder and grind your own coffee at home, before you brew each cup. Many people prefer to drink caffeinated coffee, due to the boost of energy it gives, while others prefer decaffeinated. However, there are benefits to drinking both, and current scientific study is showing that drinking coffee in moderation may have many health benefits. By choosing the proper coffee maker for the type of coffee you want to make, you can rest assured that you will have the perfect cup every time.
