Consumers buy more automatic-drip coffeemakers than any other small kitchen appliance, so it's no wonder they use about $400 million worth of electricity just brewing coffee every year. To make an energy-efficient but still high-voltage cup of java, start with the pot:
French press. Bodum Chambord's elegant but inexpensive model (pictured left) makes delicious coffee; the Columbia design contains the coffee in a thermal carafe to keep the beverage warm without the need for an electric hot plate.
Chemex manual drip coffeepots. This hourglass-shaped flask can use recycled paper filters. Make as little as one cup of coffee, or as many as ten.
Chef's Choice electric French press plus. This environmentally-friendly technology combines the French press and an energy-saving electric kettle in one pot.
One-cup coffeemakers. These efficient pots can brew coffee in less than a minute, eliminating the need to prepare a whole pot. Check the housewares section of Target,Read More »from How Eco is Your Coffee Pot?
