Top Ten Reviews offers reviews and side-by-side comparisons of the best automatic coffee makers of 2015. The site ranks the Cuisinart Extreme Brew DCC-2650, the Mr. Coffee SJX BVMC-SJX33GT and the Melitta 46894 as some of the top models available.
Cuisinart’s DCC-2650 takes home top honors for its design, functionality, range of features and quality of brewing. Reviewers note the machine’s ability to brew any amount of coffee up to 12 cups as well as its useful brew pause function, which allows users to pause the machine and pour a cup while it is still brewing. The DCC-2650 also offers a variety of programmable brew settings and an automatic shutoff timer.
Mr. Coffee’s BVMC-SJX33GT also receives praise for its high-quality brewing and versatile features. The machine provides a great deal of flexibility, offering users the option to use paper filters or a permanent metal mesh filter. Users can also have coffee drip into a portable thermal carafe or the standard glass carafe. Reviewers praise the unit’s features while noting that its large size and the location of its water indicator can make it difficult to place in more cramped kitchens.
The Melitta 46894 wins acclaim for its versatility and the quality of its brew. The device’s cone-shaped filtering system creates a stronger flavor than many similar automatic coffee makers, and the machine also offers adjustable settings for brew strength.
