Decent Auto Drip / Filter Machine

Recommended Posts

I'm usually doing a moka pot or AP but the Mrs have just started to enjoy black coffee at her work.


This is a big win for me, but she's really keen on having that film style where they wake up in the morning to a fresh pot of coffee brewing on a timer or popping it on in the afternoon for family etc. I don't want to ruin her experience of home coffee and fresh beans etc with a poor machine.


I'm looking for a half decent filter machine (ideally with timer) to use at home, the SCA approved are either not available in the UK easily or are £200+...


Our budget for this is around £60, based in Hampshire to collect but obviously can pay postage.


I'm hoping someone has a Bonavita or Moccamaster hanging around!


My rabbit hole of drip machines has led me to believe the £30 Amazon machines (Russel Hobbs etc) don't hit the right temperate or water dispersion pattern etc.


Closest available to me that looks half decent is a Grind and Brew by Cuisinart but the inbuilt grinder is never advised.

My best advice - you will likely be disappointed with a £60 brewer so save up unless you find an absolute bargain Moccamaster or Wilfa.

If you can't wait I would buy this - https://www.amazon.co.uk/Melitta-1011-16-Machine-Insulated-Selector/dp/B00R7HKARM

I have never used it so can't really comment on what it is like but it is at least a thermal jug rather than a hot plate and it is made by Melitta so it might be reasonable. It has timer too.

We have the Melitta and think it's ok. Saving up for an upgrade but this machine and a half decent grinder isn't the worse place to start. We use paper filters or a mesh filter depending on what we think tastes better for different beans
