Filter coffee machines are perfect for making large quantities of freshly brewed coffee. The water slowly drips through a container holding the ground coffee, using either a paper or permanent reusable filter. As the water flows through, it absorbs the flavours and aromas. The filter coffee is then ready to serve from the pot or carafe and is usually kept warm on a hot plate making it a quick and easy option for re-fills.
Coffee machines with a permanent filter require more cleaning but can save money in the long term. Removable paper filters are usually the easier option as they can be thrown away. Filter coffee machines come in different cup volumes depending on the number of cups you want to make in one sitting.
Ease of use: fairly easy
