Best Coffeemakers Exposed

Updated on November 4, 2010

I could never really know how to start my day without a sip from a steaming cup of coffee. The aroma and the taste always wakes me up. I know I am not the only one enjoying that type of wake up call.There are more coffee shops than any other type of shop where I live and the profusion iof coffee makers shows the demand.

But now with the help of technology, coffeemakers make it a lot easier to make the perfect cup of coffee. You could always buy at coffee shops but having one at home makes coffee more affordable and accessible any time of the day.

I have several machines and love the different flavors you get from the different machines and beans. Not all coffee machines are created equal though - and these are the best in their various price brackets.

Another great coffeemaker from Cuisinart, but it is definitely different because it does not use much electricity as it is thermal. Quality wise this is one of the best for the price - around $60. Like the other coffeemakers it is easy to use, has an automatic timer which you can set the night before so that you can have coffee as soon as you wake up in the morning. It also beeps when it is done brewing.

You can either use paper cone filters or gold cone filters - using those makes cleaning easier and saves money because you don’t have to buy filters every day. The size is not really an issue - even in a reasonably small kitchen. And even if you do not pour the coffee immediately, it will keep it warm for as long as 4 hours. How amazing is that! You can see the water level clearly also - so no wastage - just brew what you need.
