Other then the commercial coffee makers, are there any completely automatic drip home coffee makers out there that have no plastic parts? I mean any piece that water or coffee grounds touch. I’m not looking for the all glass Chemex where you heat the water separately. I guess I'm just a little lazy.ANSWER:
I believe the answer to your question is no.
A lot of people are feeling concerned right now about plastics in coffee makers and, as you know, one of the answers is to use a manual drip brewer, like the all-glass Chemex
Another popular plastic-free option is the Presto 02811 12-Cup Stainless Steel Coffee Maker
, which is an electric percolator. (Pictured above.)
But as far as I know, there are no automatic drip brewers that are free of plastic parts.
Anyway, I’m posting your question here in the hope that someone may know of a brewer that is plastic-free and tell us about it.Additional information that might interest you:Coffee from our new coffee maker tastes bad
