It has been a long time since I have used a manual drip coffee maker but I do have limited experience with them. I began many years ago to use the single cup model as I was the only java drinker in the household at the time. If you can boil water and measure a tablespoon full of coffee the hard part is done one can easily make a great cup using the manual drip method and is certainly cost effective as they are generally inexpensive. The larger styles can brew 8- 10 cups at a time.
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.
