The OXO On Barista Brain is a simple drip coffee maker. The digital LCD display is tiny and has a single knob below that you can set to 2 different brew sizes:
Then it empties the water reservoir, provided it’s filled within that range, and brews your coffee.
The magic in this coffee maker is what’s happening on the inside. A scale accurately measures the amount of water you’re brewing with and optimizes the heating temperature and brew volume within the 2-4 or 5-9 cup size you selected.
How can something so simple make a list of the best drip coffee makers?
Simple isn’t always bad!
Sure, the On Barista Brain isn’t as feature-rich as many other coffee makers, but it does excel at brewing a hot, evenly-extracted pot of coffee.
That’s something many coffee makers can’t say.
