Here I will help you explore some of the most common coffee maker types as well as some coffee makers that are truly for the coffee crazy. I have tried to cover some of the benefits of using different coffee brewers depending on your personal needs. If you lead a busy life and your always on the go a single cup maker maybe just the answer to keep up to your active lifestyle. There are one cup makers available that deliver a mug of hot brew that you make and take with you. Most brew quickly through the lid into a thermal mug and shuts off automatically when done.
A single cup maker is an ideal gift for commuters college students professionals always on the go newlyweds or the single java drinker household. Benefits from a single cup coffee maker include a perfect cup of freshly brewed hot coffee in a flash. Excellent for the office or dorm you can also make hot water for tea hot chocolate or instant soups. The k-cup coffee system made by Keurig has it`s own formula for brewing a fresh single serving . It consists of a single portion of ground beans in a container with a filter built-in.
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.
These different types of coffee makers are designed to meet various needs and preferences of different consumers. Their non-electric coffee makers are very appealing to people who have an intrinsic love for coffee and want to have their coffee brewed the conservative all-natural way. Their electric coffee makers are for those who simply can`t live without having coffee fixes throughout the day. And their single-serve pod machines are for those who want to take coffee and beverage drinking to a whole new level. These pod machines are very efficient machines that can brew one cup of coffee just for you within minutes.
The java is brewed by placing the coffee and water together leaving to brew for a few minutes then depressing the plunger to trap the grounds at the bottom of the container. Because the grounds remain in direct contact with the brewing water and the grounds are filtered from the water via a mesh instead of a paper filter java brewed with the French press captures more of the brews flavor and essential oils most of these are generally trapped in the paper or wire filters we use in the drip method of brewing. Because the used grounds remain in the drink after brewing French pressed coffee should be served immediately so as to not become bitter. A typical 8-cup French press is considered expired after 20 - 25 minutes as there is no warmer plate as in many makers.
Beans for use in a French press should be of a consistent coarse grind. The use of a hand coffee grinder or manual coffee grinder gives a more consistent grind than the whirling blade variety of electric grinders. The ground should be more coarse than that used for a drip coffee filter as a finer grind will seep through the press filter and into the coffee. A French press is also more portable and self contained than other makers. And make a great solution for a travel maker in such cases as back packing or camping. Despite the name the French press is not noticeably more popular in France than in other countries. In most French households coffee is usually prepared by drip brewing using an electric coffee maker and paper filters.
