How to choose a drip coffee maker


Překapávač ocení hlavně lidé, kteří rádi popíjí kávu vícekrát v průběhu dne a nechtějí se zabývat její neustálou přípravou. Jde také o vhodný přístroj do společných prostor, jako jsou například kanceláře. Poradíme vám, na co si dát při výběru překapávače pozor, i jaké typy překapávačů jsou k dostání.

If you find espresso too strong for your taste, why not try a drip coffee maker. They produce a lighter-tasting coffee similar to that of a French press, but unlike the French press, the coffee extraction is done through a paper filter. Accordingly, filter quality plays an important role in the final taste of the coffee.

Frequently asked questions when choosing a drip coffee maker

How do drip coffee makers work?

Unlike espresso, which is made by forcing hot water through coffee under high pressure, drip coffee is made by pouring hot water over coffee grounds held in a paper filter. The hot water flows through the grounds and drips into a vessel below. This creates a smoother, less intense coffee.

How do you prepare coffee in a drip coffee maker?

Fill the resevoir with water, place a filter in the funnel and slightly moisten the filter with water. Then put freshly ground coffee (ideally a medium grind) into the filter. For 125 ml of medium-strong coffee, use 7 grams of coffee; for a stronger brew, use eight grams. Upon activation, the water is heated and the drip process begins.

Who are drip coffee makers designed for?

Drip coffee makers are ideal for people who prefer a lighter coffee than espresso, and for those who like to take their time and savour their coffee.

Important parameters



Drip coffee makers allow you to prepare different amounts of coffee depending on your needs - you can prepare a single cup for yourself or multiple cups for guests simply by changing the amount of water and coffee. They are available with capacities from 0.75 to 2 litres.



The quality of the filter has an effect on the quality of the prepared coffee.

  • Paper filters are designed for single use. Poor-quality paper filters can adversely affect the taste of the coffee.
  • Plastic filters can be used multiple times. They are removable and washable.
