OXO On Barista Brain Overview

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:

  • 2-4 cups
  • 5-9 cups

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.

Pros
  • SCAA certified with smart internal components for an always-optimal cup
  • Brew pause functionality to siphon off a cup
  • 24-hour programmability to wake up to a hot pot
Cons
  • Does’t brew anything other than hot coffee
  • No controls for brew temperature or strength
  • No Auto-Off functionality

About The Coffee Maven
bryan de luca
Bryan De Luca

I'm Bryan but most people know me as The Coffee Maven. I grew up outside Boston, Massachusetts and received my Bachelor's degree in Biochemistry from Providence College. My first introduction to coffee was during my college days, when I used it as a source of caffeine to fuel late-night study sessions, but soon I became obsessed with the chemistry of coffee. How did changes to water temperature or contact time affect its taste? Why do beans from Africa taste fruity while beans from Indonesia taste spicy? I launched The Coffee Maven in February 2017 to explore these questions and help others brew their perfect cup. Welcome to my site, and thanks for reading!
