If you (or someone you know) appreciate the time and technique that goes into pour-over coffee but also want a little bit of automated convenience, then this is the machine for you. Cuisinart’s PurePrecision features stainless steel sides and a carafe that looks like it came straight from a cafe. Nevertheless, it isn’t all about looks: the pour-over method makes a great cup of coffee (thanks to the prewetting of coffee grounds, which allows them to bloom for optimum flavor) and it is approved by the SCAA (Specialty Coffee Association of America). You can grab a cup of coffee before the pot is finished with Cusinart’s Brew Pause, unlike traditional pour-over coffee. Select from mild, medium and bold brews.
