6 Cool Coffee Makers

Gone are the days where Mr. Coffee ruled the roost. Today’s coffee makers range from fully automated high tech marvels to carefully crafted cold-press creators. Here’s 6 of the  best coffee makers, all guaranteed to kick your morning cup into high gear.

ChemexAlthough it now graces the countertops of just about every style-savvy caffeine junkie out there, the Chemex is nothing new. Invented in 1941, this manual coffee maker looks like something you would find in a science lab and makes an amazing cup of joe. The secret is in the shape—it’s meant to help remove the coffee oil which results in a taste that is markedly different than what you’d get from a traditional machine. As if that weren’t enough, you can find it on display at New York City’s Museum of Modern Art.

Nescafe Dolce GustoWhile purists may argue that single-serve coffee makers produce a subpar cup, they can’t argue that as far as appearances are concerned, the Dolce Gusto is killing it. Perfect for people who can’t seem to finish an entire pot, this streamlined countertop appliance kicks out individual servings of delicious coffee and looks awesome doing it. A wide variety of drink styles means you can hone your barista skills and the extensive flavour library guarantees that you’ll never fall into a coffee rut.

Eileen Gold Coffee PressBodum was founded in 1944 and has been helping coffee connoisseurs worldwide brew  perfect French press coffee ever since. Now they’ve taken their game to the next level by introducing the Eileen Gold press, a super-stylish and fabulously functional way to ensure that even your morning cup looks amazing. Perfect for those who keep carefully curated countertops or anyone who just wants to add a little bling to their kitchen.

Bialetti Moka GlossyThis little stovetop brewer produces a deep, flavourful espresso with virtually no effort required on your part; something to be grateful for when you’ve just stumbled out of bed and can barely keep your eyes open. Traditionally, the Bialetti is a cool, industrial silver colour but there’s just something about the bright red edition that makes the whole coffee-making routine especially fun.

Hario Tabletop Coffee SiphonDo not, under any circumstance, buy this coffee maker if you hate attention, because it will be impossible to keep a low profile once word gets out that you’ve got one of these in your house. Part science experiment, part high tech brewing experience, this is the option for those who like to add some dramatic flair to their coffee brewing experience. Because it requires a bit of coordination and precision, this may not be the best option for those who want a quick and easy way to get caffeinated but it’s an excellent choice for those who don’t mind working a bit in order to get a truly excellent cup.

Technivorm Moccamaster CDT Thermal BrewerIf you can’t quite let go of the automatic drip but want to avoid the typical bulk associated with conventional auto-brewers, the Moccamaster should be right up your alley. Boasting an impressive brew time (6 minutes) and high-tech features that ensure that you get a consistently delicious cup of coffee, this Dutch machine is the perfect balance of style and technology.
