How To Choose Coffee Makers!

Want to know how to choose a coffee maker? 
When you go to buy a coffee maker there are
so many choices it's hard to know which one to

To end up with a coffee maker that is perfect for
you, you need to consider not only basic features,
but a few other features you may not have thought

First, you need to decide what type of filter you want.
Drip coffee makers offer two types of filters, a basket
type filter or a cone shaped filter.

The most popular basket type filters are ones like the
 Mr. Coffee brand coffee makers are famous for. These
 basket type filters swing out to put coffee in or take grounds

With cone type filters you fill the coffee and take grounds
out from the top of the coffee maker. Each has their own
advantages but cone type filters are a little less prone to

You may also want to consider a gold tone filter instead
of paper filters to give your coffee a richer taste. These
fine mesh gold screen filters allow more flavorful coffee
oils in your cup but they do require regular cleaning. So
decide if the extra maintenance is worth it.

Another important consideration for how to choose a
coffee maker is how convenient is the coffee pot to clean.
Coffee pots that have a long and slender neck will be harder
to clean than one with a wider opening at the top. That's
because it's hard to get your hand inside the pot.

If your hand can easily fit inside the coffee pot, it will make
leaning very easy. But if it's hard to clean with a small opening,
you will probably clean it less often. That will affect the taste
of your coffee over time due to the build up of oils and residue.
So look at how the pot is shaped for cleaning.

Another good tip for how to choose a coffee maker, is look
for the temperature your coffee will reach when brewing. The
water temperature needs to be between 195 to 205 degrees

Usually, the less expensive coffee makers do not reach these
temperatures but the better brand names will advertise this. If
you are looking for the best coffee maker for your money, this
should be a consideration. After all, you want your coffee maker
 to make great tasting coffee. 

With all the different choices and different models of coffee
makers, it's easy to get confused. But if you want to get the
best model that fits your lifestyle, remember these tips for how
to choose a coffee maker so you'll end up with the perfect choice.
