The OXO Barista Brain is designed to make home brewing as easy as possible. The model features an LED interface that is easy to read and has intuitive controls. With a simple twist of a knob, you switch the brew amount from 2 to 4 cups or 5 to 9 cups at a time. With a push of the button, you confirm your selection.
Once you have set the desired number of cups, the Oxo On 9-Cup Coffee Maker does the rest. Brew time and temperature are set automatically and give you the best results. This takes the guesswork out of brewing, so you end up with a superb cup of coffee.
The cone-shaped brew basket also ensures that all the flavor compounds from your ground coffee beans are extracted. As a result, your coffee is equally robust whether you brew two cups or nine cups at a time.
Oh, by the way, OXO has included a 1 cup coffee scoop and 10 standard #4 filters so you can start your first brew instantly.
Imagine this tragedy: you just got your new coffee machine delivered but forgot to buy coffee filters. Fortunately, it cannot happen with the OXO coffee maker.
If you prefer a permanent gold filter instead, no problem! It will also fit, although it’s not included.
There is also an internal mixing tube in the thermal carafe that blends the coffee as it drips. So you don’t end up with the first brewed drops all on the bottom. All these features come together to give you the most delicious experience with every sip.
Unfortunately, the 9-Cup version of the OXO coffee maker does not have a removable kettle. The kettle in the 12-Cup version heats water and can be removed for a cup of tea or cocoa.
If this feature is important, you should have a look at the OXO On 12-Cup Coffee Maker now at Amazon.
