Even after a job full of pulling espresso shots, making lattes, waiting over pour overs, and frothing endless cups of milk, I still find myself gravitating back to my old faithful drip machine. Don’t get me wrong: I absolutely love espresso drinks and well-made French press and pour-over coffee, but the ease and functionality (and the final product) of a good drip machine stirs something within me. Maybe it’s the satisfaction of whacking the “brew” button first thing in the morning when I’m too groggy to fuss with my Aeropress — or it might be that I feel like a patriot when I drink my delicious cup of drip after reading countless comments on Instagram about how “American coffee sucks.” Intangible feelings aside, a good drip machine — and the key word here is good, people — can go a long way, especially if you live in a large household full of thirsty coffee drinkers. That’s why this Memorial Day, the one thing that I’m buying on sale is the Zwilling Enfinigy Glass Drip Coffee Maker.

What Is the Zwilling Enfinigy Glass Drip Coffee Maker?

This sleek, chic brewer is from the heritage culinary brand Zwilling, purveyors of all sorts of high-quality kitchen items from chef’s knives and cast-iron cookware to utensils, fry pans, and (of course) coffee makers. With precision German design and construction, this gorgeous coffee machine is about to become your new morning bestie. With its wide stainless-steel showerhead-style dripper, your grounds are evenly saturated in the basket, and the integrated blooming function means extra flavors and aromas are extracted from the coffee during the brewing cycle. (Sort of like how you’d bloom a pour over.) The built-in aroma tube allows for superior coffee circulation, while the Keep Warm function maintains optimal temperature after you brew, with an auto-shutoff feature that stops your coffee from overcooking in the 12-cup borosilicate glass carafe.
