2. Black & Decker CM2035B 12-Cup Thermal Coffeemaker, Black/Silver
Like the Mr. Coffee machine above, this 12-Cup Thermal Coffeemaker from Black & Decker uses the automatic drip brewing method. However, this machine has a few additional premium features that serious coffee aficionados will appreciate. First, as its name suggests, one of the biggest advantages that the Black & Decker 12-Cup Thermal Coffeemaker offers is its thermal carafe. This vacuum-sealed stainless steel carafe keeps coffee hot for hours and features a specially designed spout that is supposed to eliminate the spills and drips you typically get from regular carafes. It also has an automatic shutoff, Quick Touch Programming, a timer that lets you know how fresh the coffee is, and a pause and serve feature.
However, perhaps this machine’s most impressive feature for coffee lovers is its “Evenstream” showerhead that distributes hot water evenly over the entire bed of grinds. This eliminates the problem that many other drip coffeemakers have with over extracting the grinds in the center of the bed.
