7. Cuisinart CPO-850 Coffee Brewer
Pricey, but worth it for coffee connoisseurs
Cup Capacity: 8 cups | Size: 13.5 x 12 x 7.5 inches | Features: Meets the Specialty Coffee Association of America’s Golden Cup Standard, programmable, permanent filter, adjustable serving temperature, adjustable brew strength, adjustable automatic shut-off (up to 2 hours), clean alert and cycle, charcoal water filter
This good-looking, stainless-steel brewer is designed to mimic pour-over coffee, which usually requires that you boil water in a kettle and then slowly and carefully pour it over ground coffee in a filter set over a carafe. The Cuisinart CPO-850, however, does the work for you yet still delivers the same great beverage. That’s because this brewer is certified to meet the Specialty Coffee Association’s Gold Cup Standard, which means that the machine brews with water at the perfect temperature for the optimal time to give you the ideal results.
You can adjust the strength of your coffee as well as the serving temperature. However, as is often the case, “the best” comes at a price. This machine costs almost twice as much as other Cuisinart coffee makers and far more than a non-electric pour over model.
