Automatic filter machines

Postby alalsacienne » Tue Jun 16, 2015 8:28 am

Hello all,

A friend is after a machine that will make him decent coffee in the morning on a timer, so it's there when he wakes up. I've never come across a good filter machine which will do this, still less a bean-to-cup espresso machine, but wonder if anyone else could recommend one?

Thanks!

Hi alalsacienne, welcome to TMC :D The Behmor Brazen Plus is on special offer in the Members’ Clubroom at the moment. It is definitely worth a look.

There are some good machines from Technivorm in the Netherlands. We had one (with a thermos jug) at work and connected it to a digital clock timer. Using my fresh home roasted beans freshly ground the evening before it made quite acceptable morning coffee -some would say exceptional 8) -. It will be interesting for us to learn about your experience, whichever way your friend goes.

After writing that I looked more closely at the Behmor Brazen and I must say that it looks like an excellent machine, and what's more it has a built in timer. You're probably best off with that (and Steve's a good bloke :lol: ).

I decided I needed a bit of a change so I roasted some Monsooned Malabar. That was a change!

Brazen also has a timer, although I've not used it

I just edited my post and made a note of that as well. :D
