Beyond brewing Gold Cup standard pots of coffee and holding an SCA certification, it lets you customize brewing options like flow rate, bloom time and water temperature. It’s the only coffee maker that can brew with flat bottom filters and cone filters. There’s even an attachment that allows you to insert your favorite pour-over brew device and let the machine do the work. Its heating system warms water as it travels to the showerhead, meaning you don’t have to wait minutes for the water to come to temperature and making it literally the fastest coffee maker you can buy.
Its downsides, few that they are, are its size and price. It’s worth comparing its height to the space between your countertop and kitchen cabinets. As for price, the machine is $100 off its hefty $300 tag on Amazon right now.
