Braun coffee maker
Coffee makers Braun - These are usually drip-type models. The device of such coffee machines is quite simple and convenient. They have a relatively low price when compared with capsule, rozhkovymi and automatic units, as well as compact size. We can say that such coffee makers are the cheapest among all represented on the market. That is why they are in great demand. Coffee made in drip type machines is often called American.
The Braun coffee makers range is very diverse, so they are able to please even the most sophisticated customer. You can choose a model for your design, choosing the appropriate color and shape. Such an assistant will not take up much space in your kitchen and will delight every morning with the delicate aroma of freshly brewed coffee.
The coffee maker works like a kettle. In the water tank, it is heated, after which boiling water is supplied to the filtration compartment, where ground coffee is poured. Through the filter element the finished drink enters the bowl. As the bowl can be used a glass flask, a coffee pot.
The bottom platform, on which the coffee container is installed, is equipped with a heating function, which allows you to enjoy a hot drink for a long time.
The main characteristics of the models
The power of most devices - 900-1100 watts. The more power, the faster the coffee is heated and brewed. The capacity of the kettle is from 0.4 to 1.3 liters, but on some models the manufacturer indicates the number of cups. The volume of the water tank corresponds to the size of the coffee jar. Most of the units still designed for 1 liter, which can be compared with 10 cups of finished coffee.
Auto-off will work when a certain level of coffee is reached, and the anti-drip system "Drip Stop" will allow to remove the container from the apparatus even before the end of the cooking cycle, without dropping a single drop of the most valuable drink. Function "RapidBrew System" automatically turns off the coffee maker if it is offline for more than 40 minutes. The function of heating the bottom of the coffee pot will allow the drink to remain hot for a long time.
What influences the taste of the drink?
The water filtration system allows you to prepare water, after cleaning it. Many do not bother to replace the filter elements or do not use them at all; this is an individual choice of everyone. By the way, the coffee filter is also worth periodically changing, which some users may attribute to inconvenience. Coffee filters are of different types: disposable should be disposed of with residues of coffee immediately after use, nylon - reusable, they can be washed without much difficulty.
In Braun coffee machines, you can use different types of ground coffee.
For true gourmets, the lack of the function of grinding grain coffee may be a disadvantage. To get a flavored drink, you have to grind coffee just before cooking.
The material of the container for the finished drink can also affect its taste. The quality of coffee is best kept by a metal coffee pot; often such products are made on the principle of a thermos with double-walled walls. It is better to give preference to glass containers if you are going to warm the cooled coffee in the microwave. The coffee pot is made of heat-resistant glass and can be heated even on a gas stove.
Be sure to appreciate the length of the power cord, with some models it is short, which can be a nuisance during operation. Pay attention to how the lids of the water tank and the coffee compartment open. They can be folding or turning, which can also play a key role in choosing a model for a small-sized kitchen. Dispersed people should choose a model with a water level indicator to avoid overheating and the output of the heating element from the system.
Coffee makers of one model range can be made in several colors. Devices can be equipped with built-in water filters and have both reusable and disposable filters included. The reusable filter of some models can be covered with a layer of titanium ("golden" filter), which prolongs its service life.
A coffee pot, a glass flask, a jug, a glass made of plastic, a thermal coffee pot are all varieties of capacity for finished coffee. It is advisable to choose glass and metal coffee pots. They usually have a comfortable anti-slip grip. Glasses of special plastic can change the taste of the drink, they do not have a handle, which, if used carelessly, can cause a burn.
Some models of coffee pots have a narrow neck, making it difficult to wash. Jugs can almost always be washed in the dishwasher.
Braun coffee machines usually have a coffee strength monitoring system. On the surface of the device there is a regulator that allows reducing the amount of acids and bitter oils. This allows you to make coffee with a milder taste. Devices with a built-in water filter may have a memory function, it will tell you when it is time to replace the filter element.
