As for me, a top-of-the-line coffee maker, paired with a high-quality coffee pot always adds up to an excellent cup of freshly brewed coffee.
There are three factors which I particularly consider and look for when I shop for coffee pots. These are price, thermal feature and ease of replacement. If you’re also after the best coffee pots, then I suggest you take into consideration these factors, too.
Price. There’s no person in this world who does not consider price whenever they buy something. Even the richest people would always want what their money is worth.
Since most of us are buying on a budget, what we’re actually looking for is the best value product we can get for a particular sum of money we’re willing to spend.
For us, the best coffee pots are fairly priced, of good quality and within our limits, budget wise. If it’s over the price range we can afford, then it’s not worth buying at all.
Thermal Feature. When drip coffee pots are left sitting on heat plates for a long time the coffee becomes bitter which forfeits the purpose of why we actually filter coffee in the first place.
Coffee pots without a thermal feature can work well for those who are able to fully consume the batch of coffee immediately, but that’s not always the case for most of us.
Thermal coffee pots are more reliable than heat plates to keep our coffee warm, without burning it and hence, no bitter taste.
Replacement. The difficulty level in finding replacement coffee pots actually depends on the coffee machine model itself. Certain coffee makers require a particular coffee pot which in turn cannot be used with other coffee maker models, too, even if they are of the same brand.
And since these coffee pots are exclusive, it is a given that they are also expensive. The best pots are those which can be paired with a wide variety of models and much better, of different brands.
One’s personal choice is actually always the ultimate consideration when buying a coffee pot. It’s really up to you who are going to pay for it, use it and maintain to decide which coffee pot is the best coffee pot for you.
