Where can I find an all-metal or all-glass coffee maker?
Are there any all metal or all glass coffee makers that are any good? I find that the plastic on coffee makers can add a off flavor to them, if the liquid comes in contact with the plastic.ANSWER:
I can't think of any kind of modern, automated coffee maker that is all-metal or all-glass. Plastic seems to be the number one material used in all of them.
But don't worry! To my mind the best coffee maker of all is the humble French press
. It's beautifully simple and makes as good a cup of coffee as even the fanciest automatic coffee maker.
And it would be perfect for you, as it is 100% glass and metal.
The French press has fallen from fashion a little bit, only because it is so simple. Coffee lovers seem somewhat addicted to the latest high-tech brewers.
But at heart, coffee making is blindingly simple. All you need is hot water, ground coffee and some kind of filter.
I remember once, without any coffee maker available, I simply poured some ground coffee into a cotton handkerchief, tied the handkerchief in a knot and dunked it into a mug of hot water. The coffee was perfect.
I wouldn't make a habit of using a handkerchief, but I do think you would be happy with using a French press
