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.
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.
