Drip coffee machines are electric and heat water before pumping it over the grounds. A stovetop model is still available. The water is boiled in the tea kettle, then poured into a top reservoir that has holes. The coffee grounds are kept in a smaller container, often with a filter. The coffee is ready for consumption when the water has stopped dripping to the bottom. There are many brands available and a variety of prices for both stovetop and electric coffee makers. Some models come with a temporary filter while others have a permanent, gold-coated filter.
Similar coffee machines also use a tube at the center to pump water up to the top, where it falls back over the grounds. These are also known as coffee percolators or coffee urns. They come in different sizes. For home use, urns can hold up to 60 cups.
Another way to make coffee is to put coffee in a bottom of a glass cylinder. The coffee is made by pressing down on the bottom of the cylinder with a filter that is the same size as the inside. These coffee machines are also known by their names: French press, waterpress, coffee press or cafetiere.
The espresso machine is a common type of coffee machine. These machines produce coffee using steam that is pumped through finely ground coffee beans. This process produces a variety of results depending on how the operator makes it. There are many options for these machines, from simple steamers that pump steam at Bar 15 through a portafilter that holds coffee ground to more complex ones that can be programmed. Programmable machines can grind your coffee, make espresso according to your preferences and dispose of the grounds. The machine then rinses clean. Other attachments may be available to make cappuccinos or lattes. Espresso machines may use a higher pressure, 19 bars.
