expiredNinja Coffee Bar Brewer might be the best $100 you spend on a deluxe coffee experience

  • Multi-Serve Dial lets you CHOOSE A SIZE for a cup, travel mug, half carafe, or carafe
  • Thermal Flavor Extraction Technology allows you to dial up the flavor richness level and CHOOSE A BREW: Classic, Rich, Over Ice, or Specialty

  • 43 oz. Glass Carafe & Precise Temp Warming plate, keeps your coffee at the ideal drinking temperature with a 2-hour auto-off feature.

We’re Aeropress coffee drinkers at my house but when we have lots of people over we need to start pumping out coffee at a higher clip and that’s when you need to get a filter machine going. For that we’ve got a Mr. Coffee PoS from college but now that we’re real adults, this OXO On Barista Brain 9 Cup Coffee Maker is going to look a lot better in our kitchen. At $119.99 shipped at Amazon, it is $30 less than ever before and $80 off retail. This isn’t just looks; it gets 4.3/5 star reviews and has the following eatures:

  • Microprocessor-controlled brew cycle replicates the pour-over method to produce 2-9 cups of SCAA-certified perfect coffee
  • Water is heated and held at the perfect temperature for coffee (197.6-204.8 Degrees F)
  • Rainmaker shower head evenly disperses water over coffee grounds for uniform saturation and full flavor extraction
  • Intuitive LED interface features a backlit screen that displays the Coffee Maker status and freshness indicator
  • A single dial allows you to program the number of cups and the 24-hour start timer

“Great coffee” is a moving target. Thanks mostly to Starbucks, the typical coffee drinker today laughs off Sanka and other instant coffees that were considered great three decades ago. But at the same time, “third-wave” and “fourth-wave” coffee shops consider Starbucks to be a purveyor of mediocre coffee, and serious coffee drinkers agree. Independent coffee shops have continued to push coffee quality and variety forward, dragging donut shops, Starbucks, and home coffee makers to make better-tasting beverages in the process.

My Kitchen Tech column has previously explored the highest end of fancy at-home coffee with Chemex’s $250 Ottomatic pour-over coffee machine, and yesterday we covered KitchenAid’s announcement of a $250 deluxe coffee siphon brewer. But most people don’t want to spend that much money just to pour hot water on coffee grounds. So this week’s column takes a quick look at an option that’s around 90% less expensive, extremely popular, and capable of achieving excellent results: the $26 AeroPress Coffee and Espresso Maker. With an average Amazon user rating of 4.6/5 stars after nearly 3,700 Amazon reviews, the AeroPress requires a little more manual involvement, but pumps out great-tasting individual cups of coffee.

While creating a perfectly-decorated latte requires creativity and talent, producing excellent-tasting coffee is less art than science. You need to heat water to the right temperature to extract flavor from – and not further burn – fresh coffee beans, then push the water through the beans and a filter into a vessel. You can do this manually with an Aeropress for under $30, upgrade to a traditional open-flame coffee siphon for under $50, or hold off for KitchenAid’s upcoming Siphon Coffee Brewer ($250), which uses a modern design to make siphoning kitchen-safe… expand full story
