More interesting to us than the performance of a machine is the technology of the brewing process, because this is decisive for the subsequent taste of the filter coffee. In order not to burn the ground coffee during the brewing process, the water should not be boiling hot when it hits the ground coffee, but with a constant temperature of about 96 °C. Filter coffee machines such as the Wilfa Classic CMC-100S and the Moccamaster are equipped with a flow heater that closely follows this rule for good coffee. The machines drizzle the hot water onto the coffee grounds in spurts via a spray head. This enables gentle and even extraction.
A particularly appreciated feature of filter coffee machines, is the keep warm function. Coffee makers with glass jugs are usually equipped with a warming plate that keeps the coffee warm for a certain time. It is important to ensure that this plate does not exceed a maximum temperature of 85 °C, otherwise the coffee will lose its flavor. Machines with thermos jugs do not rely on a hot plate. The coffee drips from the filter holder directly into the jug and remains warm there for several hours. This preserves the aroma and ensures that hot coffee is always ready to drink over a longer period of time.
The quality of the workmanship of a machine says a lot about its durability. Machines made of stainless steel are usually better made and more robust than machines made of plastic. The Moccamaster is handmade in the Netherlands – the manufacturer even offers a 5-year warranty on top. Removable parts facilitate cleaning and thus ensure even longer durability and usability.
