You might think this coffee maker looks like a chemistry experiment, and that’s entirely understandable due to its beaker-like tank. Any avid coffee fan knows that it takes a precise temperature and water control to create the perfect cup, and this automatic filter brewer is made for a professional barista’s exactitude*. It also looks pretty cool in action, as heated water (of an optimal 197ºF–205ºF temperature, as recommended by the SCAA) is extracted from the water tank and pumped into the double-wall filter holder. Watch it in action on the retailer’s site to see the full effect.
