Finding an adjustable temperature coffee maker is certainly not an easy task. Simply, there’s not many of them out there. In fact, I’ve only found two machines that give you actual control over your brew, which you’ll find listed above.
When it comes to coffee makers, many can offer the option to adjust the brew’s strength, others offer the option to adjust the hot plate’s temperature but not the actual brew. So here are the selections that I can recommend…
Coffee Makers with Adjustable Temperature
Breville Precision Brewer with Temperature Control
Breville’s Precision Brewer is a versatile SCA certified coffee maker that automated the task of making specialty coffee. The machine is programmed with 6 coffee presets: Gold, Fast, Strong, Iced and Cold Brew. Each of these settings will brew coffee using different parameters of temperature and strength.
You’ll also have the option of creating your own settings, and that’s where you can set your own brewing temperature ranging from 197F to 204F, which is what the SCA recommends.
The Precision Brewer also gives you the option of using a cone or flat bottom filter, which works better for different volumes of coffee.
Other customizations include: adjustable flow rate and adjustable bloom time.
Keurig K-Elite Brewer
I know the K-Elite is not exactly a drip coffee maker, it’s a single serve keurig brewer. But again, it’s one of little to no brewers that allow you to adjust the temperature of your brew.
Using the K-Elite, you can select between three temperature settings between 187° – 192. This is the temperature used to brew your coffee, the end result will be slightly different.
Other features of the K-Elite:
And if you don’t like K-Cup pods, you have the option of using your own coffee grounds by using a refillable pod.
K-Supreme Plus and K-Supreme Plus Smart
Another Keurig brewer with temperature control is the K-Supreme Plus, and it works the same way as the K-Elite. It has three temperature settings. But what’s more impressive is the K-Supreme Plus SMART, which has whopping 6 temperatures to choose from. You can read a detailed post about each temperature setting here.
Can You Adjust the Temperature on a Cuisinart Coffee Maker?
Cuisinart is an excellent brand for drip coffee makers, but I’ve not included any in this post. Some Cuisinart coffee makers allow you to select of three temperatures, but this is the temperature of the hot plate used to keep your coffee hot, and not for coffee brewing.
Can You Adjust the Temperature of a Keurig K-Duo?
K-Duo/K-Duo Plus is a dual coffee maker from Keurig. If you’re wondering if the carafe side of the machine has adjustable temperature, the answer is no, it doesn’t. It also does not have adjustable temperature for the hot plate.
