These types of coffee makers are usually styled similar to the vacuum style coffee maker. They consist of two separate stacked pits but in this case the grounds and cold water are usually kept together in the same container. When you`re using the stovetop the final brewed coffee will be in the second container. What the lower container holds is the water as well as the ground coffee and the filter basket. The lower container is usually heated properly which then forces the water past the grounds. The coffee then gets siphoned from the lower container to the top container. Because of the unique shape of this coffee maker it is usually preferred by people who like a unique look for their coffee makers. Stovetop coffee makers aren`t usually required for people who need to serve a large group of people. Another thing that should be noted when preparing the coffee is that the water shouldn`t boil. This usually leads to coffee that tastes bitter.
The French press also known as a press pot coffee press coffee plunger or cafetière is a brewing device popularized by the French. Its operation is simple and can produce a stronger pot of coffee than some other types of java makers. The press pot consists of a narrow cylindrical container usually made of glass or clear plastic equipped with a lid and a "plunger" also made of metal or plastic which fits tightly in the cylinder and which has a fine wire or nylon mesh acting as a filter which can be cleaned and reused.
French press makers require hot water from a separate source while a vacpot which is called a siphon brewer or vacuum brewed coffee uses hot or cold water depending how one wants to use it. Another that requires hot water may not be considered a coffee maker but the coffee dripper that has a filter in it and sits on your cup or mug does make coffee. The most common maker is a drip coffee maker. This is true whether it is a pour over where hot water is poured over the grounds or hot water is pumped up from a side source and allowed spray water over the grounds. These makers have two shapes of filters known as the cone and the basket shape that has more drip area. Some drip makers offer a low electric heated hot plate while others offer radiant heat. Drip makers come in closed sealed and open coffee dispensing. Closed and sealed dispensing systems often close off the flavor and aroma while the coffee is being made.
Thermal coffee makers are another option as we all strive to have our brew remain hot and fresh most of the companies that produce thermal makers claim that you will have up to 4 hours of hot fresh coffee. I have a thermal maker and while it is true that the brew is still warm after a fashion I prefer to start over as I prefer to have fresh java but my wife loves it. If you are not as picky as I am then perhaps a thermal coffee maker is right for you. There are a wide variety of options as far as color and size one of the benefits is the ability to bring and place the crafe at the dinning room table while you entertain your guests.
Percolators and urns are also different in appearance but make coffee the same way. Cold water is put in the bottom and heat is applied to the water. Once these makers are turned on the water begins to heat and be pumped up through a tube that ends above the coffee basket. Some makers wait for the water in the bottom to heat some before the perking process begins. When the perking has finished the coffee is ready to drink piping hot. Many feel this is real coffee as it is usually a stronger tasting coffee than other methods. The unseen differences are in the way the coffee maker is made. Does it have more plastic than others is it programmable or digital and how much does it cost. Other unseen differences are in warranties how the coffee will taste and the wattage it will use to make the coffee. Whether it is a single coffee maker a pod maker or a multi-cup coffee maker percolator urn or espresso machine they all make coffee but how well and for how long often remain the greatest unseen differences of all.
Most drip filter makers function in the same simple manner: a paper filter sets in a basket (usually plastic) which holds the finely ground almost powdery bean. Cold water is poured into a chamber where it is heated and poured over the grounds. The brew is quickly extracted into a waiting carafe usually glass or thermal steel . The process is very simple and extremely reliable. Some have proclaimed that automatic drip coffee makers produce "off-tasting" flavors in the cup. I feel that those people need to either change or modify their coffee grind do not use reusable filters or should clean the drip maker as per the manufacturers directions.
