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.
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.
