Plamen Petkov1. Bodum Bistro B.Over
Re-create the au courant pour-over method at home-without all that pouring. This hourglass-shaped machine brings water to the ideal temperature using a 1,450-watt heating coil, then sprays it over the grounds with a showerhead-like nozzle for an even drip.
2. Breville Oracle
Make as much foam as you like with the hands-free milk texturizer. But the real draw is the pair of steel boilers-one for steam, one for espresso: Extract each shot at the correct temperature and adjust pressure based on bean type, grind, dose, and humidity.

3. Bunn Trifecta
This combines the best of two brew methods: Similar to a French press, the Trifecta gives unprecedented control over the amount of time that the grinds steep in the water, and its patented Air-Infusion technology results in a uniform extraction, like the best vacuum pots.
The One Grinder to Own
Even the best grinders have offered only approximate weights and measurements. Not anymore: Baratza's Vario-W ($575; baratza.com) takes out the guesswork with a built-in dead-accurate auto-dosing scale that doles out the perfect amount of beans-based on 230 distinct settings-with the touch of a button.
