4 Ways to Make a Better Cup of Coffee

Urbasm's Eric Leech shares 4 great coffee makers so you can skip that morning Starbucks run.


Coffee offers one of the quickest jolts of energy you can get when you’re feeling sluggish. We’re talking about going from blah to ‘pow’ in about 10-minutes flat. Coffee is also a great source of vitamins and antioxidants, including Potassium, Niacin, Magnesium, Manganese, Riboflavin (Vitamin B2), and Pantothenic Acid (B5). It can boost your metabolism by as much as 10 percent to help you stay trim, and it also has properties that could help your body fight both heart disease and Diabetes II.

But we’re not really questioning if coffee could be better for you, but if there are ‘better’ ways to brew it–And the answer is yes!

Poppy Pour-Over Coffee Machine


Poppy takes directions from your phone through a clever app that allows you to schedule it when you need it… and just the way you like it. It grinds fresh beans, filters your water, uses paperless filters and looks fantastic on your kitchen counter (even if they say so themselves).

OXO Good Grips Cold Brew Coffee Maker


Hot water and coffee grounds go together like oil and water if your a stickler for a less bitter and acidic taste to your coffee. The cold-brew process of the OXO system helps deliver a smoother cup that stays fresh longer than normal (about two weeks). And thanks to its 32-ounce borosilicate carafe, you can get as many as 12 to 14 cups out of its resulting concentrate. All you need to do then is add hot water (or hot milk) for a traditional cup of coffee, or ice and water for the iced variety.

Chemex Ottomatic Coffeemaker


This Chemex is as stylish as it is functional. It features a host of features, including a variable temperature range to suit your tastes, a unique sprayhead to ensure a bold flavor to every cup, and the classic Chemex carafe which consistently appears to have been designed and crafted by an artisan.

Ratio Eight Coffee Machine


The Ratio Eight uses a two-step ‘pour-over’ technology to vastly improve on the traditional brewing process. It comes with absolutely no flimsy plastic parts or complicated apps to program. Just add water and grounds, and wait for the LED lights to signal it is time to pour and enjoy. Yes, we like coffee; but we like simple even more.
