Filter Coffee Machines – Recommendations

If you want simple, just get a cafetierre. Makes better coffee that a filter IMO.
Otherwise, the Cona ones are a bit special.Posted 6 years ago
After going from a cafetierre to a filter machine, and subsequently junking the filter machine, I would suggest:

My trusty old filter machine died this morning and as it’s an essential bit of kit it needs to be replaced.
I don’t want an espresso machine just a simple filter coffee machine
Is it worth buying a nice one or will a cheapy be just as good?

While I appreciate that a cafetiere may make nicer coffee and some of the others are spectacular to look at all I’m after is a filter machine that I can fill with water and coffee in the morning and while I faff about feeding cats, emptying the dishwasher and doing all the other rubbish little jobs that crop up that need to be done before you go to work it happily makes me a pot of coffee.
I can’t be arsed with cafitieres as they need to be dismantled to get them clean and I really can’t be doing with that first thing and if I’m working from home they don’t hold enough coffee or keep it hot.
I’m guessing that as it’s just putting hot water through the ground coffee and the standard of the coffee will have more bearing on the taste it,s just a case of considering how robust the machine is.
So bearing this in mind any further suggestions?

Filter machines are the work of the Devil; they put too much water through the coffee at too low a temperature. You end up with weak insipid coffee and a temptation to drink it stale, which is bad for the health.
Cafetiere is the way to go. The aluminium Italian ones are good.
Alternatively get some Arabic coffee and the special boiler and learn to do it the Arab way.Posted 6 years agomeeeeeMember
i’ve had filter machines from breville / tefal and also mega cheap ones from argos, all the same imho.
I actually like filter machine coffee, providing it hasnt been sitting in the jug for hours. Like the op says, if you just want no mess hassle free coffee in a mrning, filter machines are great, and even if it doesnt taste like the best coffee in the world its still 1000x betther than instant!Posted 6 years ago
