Coffee makers are now a thing to all coffee lovers, without them our morning including our whole day will never be complete because coffee is life.
However, each of us has different preferences when making our coffee. Some of us prefer a French Press which makes an immersion brew, where the water sits with the coffee and others prefer pour-overs where the water allows to pass through the grounds. And some of us wants the multiple morning rituals, while most of us prefer the push the button, and get out the door.
Well whether what your preferences in your morning coffee, you must also take into consideration the amount of coffee you want to make whether it’s multiple serving or just a single serve.
Sometimes, though, the answer is not either-or but both-and, says Brian Jones, author of the book “Brew: Better Coffee at Home” and co-founder of a coffee-roasting company. “There’s no rule against having several different brew methods,” he says. “It’s nice to be able to switch up the method depending on your mood, your company or the type of coffee you’re brewing.”
Jones recommendation in a coffee maker is the Hario V60 Drip Brewer, and this serves as his morning go-to in making his cup of morning brew. “It’s a round pour-over dripper with spiral ridges to help with water flow while brewing,” Jones says. He prefers a coffee brewer that gives a lighter, and cleaner finish, which the pour-over offers.
On the point of view of Nancy Fire, design director for HGTV Home. When she’s home she likes to use the Williams Sonoma Double-Wall Glass French Press because, “It is so durable, and it always keeps the coffee hotter for longer,” she says.
And according to a gift and housewares owner, Adam Mahr, from Washington, D.C., every morning he steeps his coffee grounds in the Espro Press P7.
Mahr prefers the multiple rituals in making his morning brew where he grinds his beans before brewing to preserve the oil, He then heats water on the stove, cutting it off right before it boils, and heats the stainless-steel press with hot water before putting in the grounds. The unique double filter of the press keeps the grounds from sludging up the coffee.
“Every morning, I go down, feed the dogs, make my coffee, watch ‘Morning Joe’ and then begin my day,” he says. One of his research is to design a glass that highlights the characteristics of coffee, especially the fine, frothy crema.
“When you are trained to examine aromas and flavors, then it does not make a difference if you drink wine, soda, juice, coffee or tea. Everything that is aromatic comes with a basic structure,” he says.
Every coffee maker has their own unique features, but Riedel prefers any De’Longhi machine, and especially the Nespresso CitiZ Espresso Machine by De’Longhi.
