Are you looking for a quality automatic coffee maker? Then take a look at the OXO 9-cup brewer.
The OXO Brew is a handsome coffee maker with a simple single-button/dial design. It incorporates a computer microprocessor to regulate the three critical variables of brew time, water temperature and volume. Additionally, and what makes the OXO deserving of a serious look, is its certification by the SCA (Specialty Coffee Association) as a "Certified Home Brewer." This means it has passed their strict standards for delivering rich, gold-standard coffee – every time.
Why do we call the OXO a pour over hybrid? Because it automates many of the events of a manual pour over brewer:
- Heat the water to 200ºF
- Pre-wet the coffee grounds to allow for bloom
- Pulse the brew water over the coffee grounds utilizing a "rainmaker" shower head
The OXO can be set to make 2-4 or 4-9 cups. It also offers a 1-hour timer to help you know when the brewed coffee is past its optimal serving time.
