Test winner coffee machine with glass jug: Krups KM321 Proaroma Plus
In the 08/2018 issue, Stiftung Warentest tested 15 filter coffee machines, 7 of them with a glass jug. The best glass jug coffee machine is the Krups KM321 Proaroma Plus, which can be found in stores for around 40 euros. The final grade was "good" (2.1), the "sensory assessment" (taste, smell) came to a grade of 2.0 (with 35 percent the highest weighting in the test procedure). The power consumption is comparatively low and received the sub-grade “very good” from the Stiftung Warentest. No abnormalities were found - this machine is simply inexpensive and makes decent coffee.
The average Amazon customer rating is 4 out of 5 stars. Individual users criticize the jug because it spills when the coffee is poured out. You should be particularly careful with the jug, because a suitable replacement glass jug ("XB9006") costs around 20 euros.

Test winner coffee machine with thermos: Melitta Look V Therm Perfection
In the "Kitchen & Household" magazine (issue 03/2020, available from Readly), Melitta Look Therm Perfection emerged as the test winner with a grade of 1.3. The coffee machine scores with a thermos flask made of stainless steel (shatterproof) and a removable water tank. The machine switches itself off after 40 minutes ("Auto-Off") - however, the Melitta Look Therm Perfection does not have a timer for the pre-planned coffee preparation. Practical: After a while of daily use, an LED indicates when the descaling program should be carried out.

- Good equipment (stainless steel jug, timer for keeping warm, descaling reminder, removable water tank)
- Flavor control (mild or strong)
no timer for preparation start (only the more expensive model "Look Timer" has)
Price tip / bestseller: Melitta Easy
Cheaper than a pack of delicatessen coffee: The Melitta Easy is commercially available for less than 25 euros - a real price hit. The equipment is limited to the essentials. The drip stop prevents dripping after removing the glass jug, the machine switches off automatically after 40 minutes and the filter holder and jug are dishwasher-safe.
The Melitta Easy is a bestseller on Amazon, which is very well received by customers with an average of 4.4 out of 5 stars. Before buying, however, you should make it clear that this is a budget model of the "entry-level class": "The feel and appearance of the machine are cheap, but can be expected for the price and are therefore okay," summarizes one of the Buyers together.

Manageable equipment, according to the price range
Luxury coffee machine: Moccamaster KBG 741 AO
The Moccamaster from Technivorm comes from the Netherlands - a noble coffee machine with cult status which, according to some fans, produces the best filter coffee in the world. Well, such assessments should of course be taken with a certain skepticism. The Moccamaster can look back on a history that goes back to 1968 - so there was enough time to build legends.
The hard facts still speak for the iconic device: Numerous tests and reports confirm that the Moccamaster KBG 741 performs very well (including CNET, The Perfect Grind, New York Times). Apart from that, the design deserves a second and a third look: the design is industrial, factual and timeless. Such a coffee machine goes well with other kitchen classics such as the Kitchen Aid Artisan or the Smeg 2-slice toaster. What they all have in common is that they are expensive.

Filter coffee machine: You should know that
How a filter coffee machine works
In front of all the coffee machines and espresso machines, one could almost forget how easy a classic filter coffee machine is to use. Fill the tank with water, put the filter bag in the holder, add coffee powder and then switch on the machine. About ten minutes later, a pot (approx. 8-10 cups) of digestible coffee is ready. Since the built-in electronics are quite simple, the maintenance is limited and it can simply be broken less. Experience has shown that a glass jug is most likely to break, then you have to get a suitable replacement jug (e.g. for the test winner from Krups).

Maintenance and cleaning
Filter coffee machines are comparatively low-maintenance - at least when you think of the much more complex fully automatic coffee machines. However, a filter coffee machine must also be maintained and serviced. Those who are not yet familiar with this can take a look at the operating instructions (PDF) of the Melitta Easy. This describes the most important point that applies to all models: “Depending on the water hardness, the device may calcify over time. This also increases the energy consumption of the device, since the limescale layer in the heating element prevents optimal transfer of the heating energy to the water. To avoid damage, the device must be descaled regularly.”For descaling, special decalcifying liquids or - as with a kettle - household vinegar are used. Important when using chemical products:Be sure to follow the instructions of the cleaner manufacturer!

Fairtrade coffee: good for the producer, good for the environment
In Germany, every person consumes an average of 5.7 kilograms of coffee a year - that's an impressive amount. For several years now, coffee beans and powder that have been traded fairly have been in trend. The purchase supports small farmers in the growing countries (eg Brazil, Tanzania, Costa Rica) and, according to the TransFair initiative, "makes a valuable contribution to improving living and working conditions" and also contributes to "promoting environmental protection". Corresponding products are labeled with the label FAIRTRADE and a blue-green seal.

Coffee and health: don't overdo it
Coffee contains caffeine - according to nutritionist Dr. Anna Flögel has between 40 and 120 milligrams per cup. It is a psychoactive substance with a stimulating effect - or in other words: a chemical substance that stimulates the body and thus keeps the coffee drinker awake for longer.

The way and above all how strong caffeine works varies from person to person. One hardly notices an effect, the other gets a racing heart after just a few cups. Basically, coffee should be drunk in moderation and without added sugar - then the brown drink is also recommended for everyday enjoyment. T-Online has compiled 19 positive effects on health: Among other things, a reduced risk of cancer and cardiovascular diseases. Around 4 cups of coffee spread throughout the day are considered safe (healthy adult general population, according to EFSA), but pregnant women should consume a maximum of 1 cup of coffee per day.
