If you are completely against plastic in coffee makers whether it’s the possible aftertaste or the health concern with BPA, there are some coffee makers out there that are 100% or almost 100% made without plastic.
Please be aware of the possibility that some parts that are not in contact with the water or coffee beans could still be made of plastic, like the handle.
I have looked around and think I have found a few excellent options for you to feel 100% safe with these BPA free coffee maker.
Most French Presses are made of glass with some plastic exterior, but there are some made of 100% stainless steel.
My recommendation for you is the Bodum Columbia Press Pot.
It has a double-walled construction with a polished finish and even the 3-part plunger is made of stainless steel.
Percolators have gained more popularity in home kitchens and are usually made of stainless steel. The only plastic parts may be the seal or handle.
The Presto 02811 is one of the most popular ones.
All inner parts are 100% stainless steel and therefore BPA free! Through the hint of an attentive reader, I could correct a mistake. The perk well of the Presto 02811 is made of aluminum, so my information about being 100% stainless steel was not correct!
Simultaneously I sent Presto an email whether their Peroclator is still 100% BPA free, and they confirmed it!
Moka Pots produce very strong, authentic coffee almost like espresso in just a few minutes.
Most of them are aluminum while some are made of stainless steel.
The Bialetti 6800 Moka Express 6-Cup Stovetop Espresso Maker is one of the most popular Moka Pots on the market. The unmistakeably octagon shaped pot is made of 100% BPA-free polished aluminum. Only the handle is made of plastic.
The famous hourglass shaped beaker is 100% made of glass.
It is a manual coffee maker and you need special Chemex filters. But without any plastic, it is definitely a 100% BPA free coffee maker.
Pour Over Filter Cone
I couldn’t resist adding this original Japanese ad for theHario V60!
Most of them are made of plastic, but there are some made of glass or ceramic as for example the Hario VDC-02W V60 Ceramic Coffee Dripper – a fancy name for a simple filter cone by the way.
They may not be as convenient as drip coffee makers because you have to pour the heated water manually over the grounds.
But since you can influence the heat of the water and the speed of the pour you will get an unbelievable good cup of coffee – guaranteed!
