I love hot batch brew in winter, does anyone have any recommendations for devices or machines that are for home use? I prefer it to expresso coffee.

I like the look but not so much the price of the Moccamaster!

So it's just old school drip coffee?

What is so great about the Moccamaster?

If I got a drip coffee machine I would get on of the ones that have an inbuilt timer.

Drip/filter coffee is what Americans love. And I remember an early morning wake up when sleeping on my friends couch to drip coffee being brewed. Woke up before the alarm. Was lovely!

I only like it American style with flavoring and half/half!

But would drink it over instant any day!

But I mostly revert to an express when espresso isn't available.

Maybe, I'll do some more research.
I really like the batch brew in cafes and think it's a bit different to the drip machine.
I like coffee making to be a bit technical, it's like a hobby.
Thanks.

Ah so just a pour over?

Still not seeing what is technical in the Moccamaster?

Drip filter - but with fresh beans, water at optimum temperature and not steer on a hot plate for hours. Usually kept warm in a vacuum urn in cafes.

Nice with a beef stew, but I don’t lust for it. I prefer pour over.

I can't figure out the difference between batch brew and pour over TBH!

Pour over has a jug of water which you pour onto the grounds and let run through, topping up as needed.

Some batch makes 6 cups, and pour over one?

Ie is the ground of the beans the same and the water temp the same?

I wasn't lusting over that particular machine, I was asking for recommendations from members who also like batch brew coffee. I looking a cost effective method of making coffee the way I seem to prefer.

In rt pour over,  from reading it seems to be for cold water which I also like but in the cold weather I'd prefer hot coffee with the same qualities of a batch brew.
It seems easier to cool a hot brew that warm a cold brew!

Dadwasathome, what pour over device do you use and does it mean you make cold coffee?

I think people like coffee made on cold water because it isn’t bitter like poorly made hot coffee is. But I can see that wouldn’t work for you if you like it hot. Do you like French press? That’s probably the way I’d go. Pretty delicious, easy to make and clean and the equipment is cheap.

No, pourover is different to cold drip, and just uses a cup top filter with paper. Nice and smooth - I find th mouth feel nearer to tea than coffee.

Cold drip is coffee juice, and perfect on ice in warm weather. (by which I mean it's fruity and flavoursome, with fewer of the oils extracted, giving a fresh taste and mouth feel)

I watched the video and I’m really not getting what the difference between this and a percolator is. https://alternativeb...master-classic/

Could you use the technique of stirring the coffee while it’s in the filter with a better brand of percolator? That way the temperature of the water is likely to be more reliable, I would suppose.

Do you want the batch because it makes a lot? Or just because your like how it comes out?
I don’t think you have to do big batches at home if it doesn’t suit.

Something like this might be the go. https://alternativeb...-dripper-2-cup/

I'd probably like pour over, I presume it's a bit different to Aeropress?
Thanks for the info.

I love the flavour and would utilise a bigger batch.
I'll look up the Hario.  
Thanks :)

Re cooling hot brew, I believe it makes it bitter. Which is why cold brew is the rage now.

Like dadwasathomesaid, cold brew is fruit etc.

And I agree with riotproof now you have clarified, if you don't need to make 6 cups at once great something single serve. You said it in you pp, you don't want it sitting there. Which it would with a bigger brewer. I.e. you don't need 'Bach's brewing.
