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.
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.
