Does an Electronic Coffee Maker Really Give the Best Coffee Experience?

Why is the electronic coffee maker or automatic drip coffee maker the most widely used type of coffee maker in the world today?

What are the advantages of having an electronic coffee brewer? Does it give the best coffee experience out of all the types of coffee makers?


While some electronic coffee machines can be quite expensive, on average, it doesn’t cost an arm and a leg to purchase one.

In fact, there are quite a bit of great value coffee makers, coffee makers that are very affordable but are surprisingly reliable and exceed expectations, which are being sold in the market.

Furthermore, investing in a good coffee maker and using it on a daily basis is still more economical than going to a coffee shop for one’s coffee on a daily basis.

As far as convenience and ease of usage goes, nothing beats an electronic coffee maker. Compared to manual drip coffee makers, press pots, and percolator coffee makers, electronic coffee makers are very easy to use and require very little effort.

For instance, electric coffee makers that are fitted with programmable timers can brew coffee automatically and don’t require you to be present at all during the brewing process.


As a result, it can brew coffee while you’re not at home, or even while you sleep. Furthermore, electronic coffee maker include various features that make them more convenient than other types of coffee makers.


One of the most important aspects of coffee brewing is the water temperature. The ideal water temperature for brewing coffee is just below boiling point, or 195° to 205°F. To maximize coffee extraction during the brewing process, the hot water should be at the ideal brewing temperature.

Therefore, as far as taste goes, an electronic coffee brewer varies on performance, depending on the model and make of the machine.

The problem with some electronic coffee machines is that they fail to heat up the water to the ideal temperature, thus not being able to get maximum coffee extraction.

And since electric coffee makers heat up water and introduce the hot water to the coffee grounds automatically, there is no way to manually control the whole brewing process.

This is why press pots and manual drip coffee makers can rival, if not get the better of electric coffee makers in terms of the taste of the brewed coffee. With press pots and manual drip coffee makers, the user has complete control over the whole brewing process.


Nevertheless, when you take everything (cost, convenience, and taste of the coffee brewed) into account, electronic coffee makers give the best coffee experience.

This is why the electrical coffee maker is the most widely used type of coffee maker in the world today, and why most coffee lovers regard electrical coffee makers as the best coffee makers to have.
