Rather than heating the water incrementally as standard coffee makers do, the KitchenAid Pour Over Coffee Brewer heats all of the water in the tank to 200 degrees F prior to releasing it into the brew basket. A timed release of the water evenly saturates the grounds, while a thoughtfully located water tank close to the brew basket minimizes heat loss. By intermittently pouring and pausing the water flow over the coffee grounds - just as a trained barista would - this coffee brewer allows the grounds to “bloom” at the optimal temperature and duration, and extracts flavors at a more finely calibrated pace than traditional coffee makers. The result is bright, clean, and full flavored coffee without diluting due to over-soaking. You’ll notice the difference in the caramel color and the complex layers of flavor.
The cup selector allows you to easily brew 2 - 8 cups of true pour over style coffee, while the brew basket clip holds a paper filter in place and provides specific dosage recommendations for the desired number of cups. The one-touch medium or dark roast setting adjusts the brewing temperatures slightly higher and lower to accommodate different roasts, allowing you to taste all the subtleties and flavor within these different roasts. The easy-to-read digital display shows each step of the brewing process (Heating, Pouring, Steeping and Enjoy), and this coffee maker is conveniently programmable up to 24 hours in advance, so your coffee will be ready at a precise time, day or night.
