Filter coffee machines are the classic way to create great tasting clean and crisp coffee. These machines heat up water to the right temperature then slowly pass this water through the coffee grounds and into the jug to create a delicious brew.
Although filter coffee machines are seen as more simplistic there are many options and features to consider when selecting the ideal fit for your household.
When narrowing down which filter coffee machines to consider you can first look at the type of coffee machine jug that will best suit your needs. Glass jugs are the traditional and most common type of jug, these give great visibility of the coffee in the pot but are prone to breaking if dropped or damaged. Stainless steel coffee jugs however will not break and have the added benefit of keeping your coffee warmer, although most filter coffee machines do also include a heating plate to keep coffee warm. At Melitta we also sell coffee filter machines with insulated jugs, these are ideal if you want to keep your coffee warm for a longer period of time.
A timer function can help make those coffee moments just that bit sweeter, there is nothing better than waking up to the smell of fresh coffee brewing. Set your filter coffee machine up so that it comes on when you’re ready, then you don't have to wait for your coffee enjoyment. A timer function is ideal for those busy mornings where you have no time to spare before dashing out the door.
Descaling and Cleaning
To keep your coffee tasting flawless, regular cleaning and descaling is essential. Many of our filter coffee machines have descaling displays and descaling programmes. These alert you when you need to carry out a descale of the machine. By regularly descaling your filter coffee machine you can prolong its life and ensure the perfect tasting brew every time.
At Melitta we think owning a filter coffee machine should be a joy and cleaning should be simple and easy. That’s why most of our filter coffee machines have removable filter holders and jugs that are both dishwasher safe, so you can get right back to enjoying your coffee.
Quantity and Quality
Our filter coffee machines vary in capacity to suit the needs of all households, some can produce up to 10 cups of coffee for busier households, others have a smaller capacity making them ideal for compact kitchens.
Many of our larger filter coffee machines have the function to brew smaller amounts of coffee, 2-5 cups, whilst maintaining the great taste of a full batch. This feature is called AromaControl and only uses half the power to create the same full flavoured perfectly brewed coffee. This function is great for households with varying coffee needs.
Preference of coffee strength varies between our customers and their households, to ensure we meet all of your needs many of our filter coffee machines include adjustable coffee strength. You can easily switch between mild, medium, and strong, when you want a more or less intense coffee experience. Each coffee strength setting creates a clean, crisp, delicious tasting filter coffee moment.
A selection of our Melitta filter coffee machines have integrated grinders, so you can prepare filter coffee from freshly ground coffee beans, for full coffee enjoyment. As soon as coffee beans are ground, they begin to age quickly, the comparison between freshly ground beans is noticeable, your brew will have more flavour, aroma and freshness. For the best cup of coffee, we recommend grinding your own coffee beans. Our filter coffee machines with integrated coffee grinder do the hard work for you, in one simple to use stylish countertop machine.
