Thousands of people visit The Coffee Concierge every day looking for coffee maker reviews to help guide them towards the perfect coffee maker. But what do most of the site's visitors ultimately choose to brew their coffee with?

Today I'm going to share the top 5 best-selling (referred to Amazon) coffee makers on The Coffee Concierge.

I will update this list regularly. These are the top 5 as of 11/14/16:

1. The Bonavita BV1900 Thermal Carafe Coffee maker

Since the Bonavita BV1900 came out a few years ago, it has easily replaced its predecessor, the BV1800, as the “best-selling” coffee maker here at The Coffeee Concierge.

You can check out my side-by-side comparison of the two models in the video here:

 

 

Of the many auto drip coffee makers on the market, few combine simplicity and function as well as the BV1900, which is the least expensive of the current list of SCAA Certified home brewers.

With the simple flip of a switch you are minutes away from a full pot of piping-hot coffee. While you can't customize your brew beyond a 30-second pre-infusion, the coffee is sufficiently and evenly extracted thanks to the larger showerhead and flat filter basket.

2. The OXO On Barista Brain

The OXO Barista Brain is one of the newer SCAA Certified home brewers, and it does not disappoint.

Both the 9 and 12-cup models have a very sleek, modern look with a relatively simple interface. Although it isn't the simplest coffee maker I've ever reviewed, it is simple enough for anybody to use in a short period of time.

With one dial that doubles as a select button, you choose your serving size and will be on your way to brewing coffee after just a few clicks of the button/dial.

3. Brazen Plus

The Brazen Plus had the longest run in my kitchen of any auto drip coffee maker I've owned, mostly because I love experimenting with different brewing parameters like water temperature.

Now, I regularly use the upgraded model, the Behmor Connected to change these parameters through an app on my iPhone, however, I wouldn't say that the Connected is much of a value add over the Brazen Plus.

4. The Aerobie Aeropress

Another coffeemaker that I personally own, and boy, I don't see how this kind of value can be beat. At under $40, it's astounding how good the coffee that the Aeropress makes. It really tastes like no other coffee you will have from any other brewing method. And it's fun to use to boot!

5. Hario V60

The Hario V60 is probably my second favorite coffee maker behind the #4 best-selling AeroPress.

It's really nothing fancy, just a 1-3 cup pour over cone dripper with a large hole at the bottom.

Still, I've found that my resulting coffee is often better than what I can get from alternative pour over coffee makers like the Chemex and Bonavita Immersion Dripper.

The reason for this is mere speculation, but I think it likely has to do with some of the unique design elements that the Hario V60 possesses, such as the curved ridges along the inside of the cone, as well as the large hole at the base.

But who knows for sure? All I know is that the Hario V60 is usually the first coffee maker I use when brewing a new coffee.

 

Have you tried any of these coffee makers first-hand? Please leave a review within one of the review posts, I'd love to hear what you have to say. Think there's a coffee maker that has the potential to make this list? Let me know by contacting me.
