In Defense of Auto Drip


There are a dozen or so methods for brewing coffee. I use a lot of them - for different tastes and moods.

Mostly, I use an auto drip coffee maker. Some people look down on the auto drip. Not me. Here are three reasons why.

  1. It's easy. Grind your coffee, pour in the water and set to brew. That's about it. You can go about your business. Walk the dog, take a shower, read a book. Whatever. Come back and your coffee is ready.
  2. It's predictable. Put the same amount of the same coffee, ground the same, with the same amount of the same water and you'll pretty much have the same cup of coffee - day in and day out. There's something to be said for same when it comes to coffee you like. Other methods have a few more variables that can impact the flavor - positively or negatively.
  3. It's flexible. Like your coffee stronger? Use a bit more coffee. Like it a little less bold? Use less coffee. You'll get the feel - and can change it (again, predictably) as much as you like.

I love my auto drip coffee maker.
