The Best Coffee Maker: Drip, Espresso, French Press, or Other?

Executive summary about best  By Kenneth J. Dickson

There are a myriad of different types of coffee makers on the market today. Choosing the right one for your perfect cup of coffee can be confusing and time consuming! The most common way to make coffee, at least in the United States, is the drip coffee maker. Sounds great, right? Sure, but have you ever poured yourself a cup of coffee from a drip coffee maker that's been sitting on the hotplate for 20 minutes or more? Since then, I've learned that the hotplate scorches the coffee; if you want a drip coffee maker you should get one that drips the coffee into a glass-insulated carafe to keep it warm.

Drip Coffee Makers

A drip coffee maker needs regular cleaning, especially if you live in an area with hard water. Occasionally your pot will be ruined when the filter collapses on itself and allows coffee grounds to fall into the pot. However, drip coffee makers come with some very convenient features, among them a timer system that can have a fresh pot of coffee waiting for you when you get up in the morning. There are even drip coffee makers with built-in coffee bean grinders.


This coffee maker has been around since the 19th century and works by using heat to force water up a pipe and onto a mesh basket of coffee grounds. The cheaper electric models allow the water temperature to fluctuate, scorching the coffee. A stovetop percolator can easily get hot enough to boil the coffee if you don't constantly watch it.

The French Press

This little coffee maker is among the most economical and also makes a truly delicious cup of coffee.

Moka Pots

It forces water through the coffee grounds with pressure, a bit like an espresso machine.

Espresso Machines

Espresso machines are great for a single serving or for making great coffee drinks like a mocha latte. The taste and quality of the coffee is just not comparable.

Still Undecided?

I personally prefer the French press. I used to have a drip coffee maker and still do but I haven't used it since I got the press. The taste and quality of the coffee is just not comparable. I don't mind spending a couple of extra minutes using my French press when I get coffee that tastes that good!
