What Makes a Japanese Coffee Maker Special?

While there are a variety of methods to brewing a cup of coffee - whether it be pour-over, espresso, or coffee pods, one thing that can be said is that Japanese coffee makers don't just make coffee, and are packed with a plethora of useful features and functions that not only make a great cup of joe but keep it tasty, too.


Japan has been making coffee for quite some time now, and has been developing its own coffee culture that is currently making waves around the world. Japan takes its coffee brewing seriously, with roughly 187 thousand coffee shops across the country as of 2019. Most of these coffee shops are known as kissaten, where baristas work tirelessly to perfect all things related to coffee.


In order to craft the perfect coffee experience at home, Japanese coffee maker manufacturers have also been constantly updating their products in order to satisfy even the biggest coffee lovers around the world.

What Are Drip-Style Coffee Makers?

What Are Drip-Style Coffee Makers?

Simply put, drip-style coffee makers make coffee by pouring hot water over ground coffee beans, automatically making pour-over coffee that you'd otherwise have to do by hand. These coffee makers are the most common type available and are probably what most people imagine when they think of coffee makers.


Drip-style coffee makers can also be broken down into two subtypes: those with and without a built-in coffee grinder.

Coffee makers that aren't equipped with a coffee grinder are pretty simple, with fewer parts to clean and maintain. Since they can't grind coffee beans, they can only make coffee with beans that have already been ground.


Since you can use both pre-ground beans that you buy at the store, as well as grind your own beans at home with a coffee grinder, you can enjoy your coffee just the way you like it. Plus, the lack of a built-in coffee grinder means that these simple machines are fairly inexpensive.


※The products featured in this article are all coffee machines without coffee grinders.

How We Tested the Coffee Makers

How We Tested the Coffee Makers

To find out which was the best Japanese drip coffee makers available online, we tested them all! We invited two coffee experts to test out each coffee maker based on the following points:


What we tested:

  1. How delicious the coffee was
  2. How easy it was to setup
  3. How easy it was to maintain

Test ① How Delicious the Coffee Was

Test ① How Delicious the Coffee Was

Firstly, we tested how delicious the brewed coffee was using each coffee maker


For our coffee beans, we selected the refreshingly light, UCC Gold Special Kilimanjaro Blend Coffee (Ground). We invited coffee expert Mieko Koike and coffee comedian Sachio Hiraoka to conduct our taste test.

Highlights: Gold-Plated Filters Were Delicious, While Traditional Pour-Over Styles Were Authentic

Highlights: Gold-Plated Filters Were Delicious, While Traditional Pour-Over Styles Were Authentic

To be clear, there was not one instance when we thought the coffee tasted bad during this test. However, we did find that certain types of coffee makers brought a special, deep flavor from the coffee beans that other products were unable to. These were the coffee makers with pure gold plated filters and the hand drip-style coffee makers.


Coffees that were brewed with a gold-plated filter, like the Cores Gold Filter, had an exceptional fragrance with a mellow, gentle mouthfeel. Paper filters tend to absorb the essential oils that coffee beans have, and this is presumably the reason why the gold-plated filters were able to bring out so much of the coffee's flavor.


Hand drip coffee makers, which pour hot water on the beans evenly, were also able to bring out the coffee bean's flavors, making them a great choice as well.

Test ② How Easy It Was to Set Up

Test ② How Easy It Was to Set Up

Next, we checked on how easy the setup process was for each coffee maker.


We particularly focused on three aspects

  1. How easy it was to set up the coffee beans
  2. How easy it was to fill the water tank 
  3. How easy it was to select the functions

Highlights: Simplicity is Everything

Highlights: Simplicity is Everything

Coffee makers without built-in coffee grinders are comparably easier to use and have fewer settings that you'll have to mess around with. Within these coffee makers, the favorites were the ones with obvious indicators and minimal switches or knobs.


An especially impressive product was the Ladonna's Toffy Aroma Drip Coffee Maker, being able to start the coffee-brewing process at our preferred strength with a touch of a dial.

Test ③ Ease of Maintenance

Test ③ Ease of Maintenance

As coffee makers are something you'll likely use daily, it's important that maintenance comes easy. Thus, we tested how easy each product was to maintain based on the following four points:


  1. How easy it was to clean the coffee filter
  2. How easy it was to clean the water tank
  3. How easy it was to clean the carafe
  4. How easy it was to clean the dish tray

Highlights: Choose a Removable Water Tank If You Want to Clean Thoroughly

Highlights: Choose a Removable Water Tank If You Want to Clean Thoroughly

In this test, we found that there were a surprisingly large number of coffee makers without detachable water tanks. Since the water tanks aren't washable, it's generally advised that after you brew your coffee, you leave the lid open to let the tank air dry.


However, those who don't want water to drip around everywhere, or want to have the option to wash everything should choose a coffee maker with a detachable tank.

How to Brew Delicious Coffee With a Coffee Maker

If you're going to fork out some money to pick up a coffee maker, you'll want to make sure you get the most out of your machine, right? Here are some tips to make sure you get a great cup every time.

Always Do a Test Brew After You Buy A New Coffee Maker

Always Do a Test Brew After You Buy A New Coffee Maker

The first thing you should do when you purchase a new coffee maker is to brew a pot. Coffee is great at absorbing smells, and therefore is perfect for removing that "new" smell from your brand new coffee maker. If you want to fully enjoy a pure cup of coffee, don't drink that first pot, and instead wait to brew a second.


Finally, running hot water through your machine every time you start up the machine is the key to making good coffee. Running hot water through your machine can remove the scent of old, oxidized coffee and warm up the whole machine so that it can brew your java without losing heat.

Turn Off the Switch to Bloom Your Coffee

Turn Off the Switch to Bloom Your Coffee

The act of blooming your coffee beans is an important step in the coffee brewing process. Blooming is a step where you allow the water to help the coffee beans release carbon dioxide. Too much carbon dioxide left in your coffee beans can make your coffee taste sour, as well as prevent water from extracting the flavors and oils from the coffee beans.


If your coffee maker doesn't have a blooming feature, turn off the machine once coffee starts dripping into the carafe, wait for 20 to 30 seconds, and start it up again.


Blooming can make a massive difference in how your coffee tastes, so it'll be worthwhile giving this technique a try.

Since coffee makers are machines, water will only go where it's designed to. In other words, the hot water may not always be poured evenly across your coffee beans. If you've felt that your coffee is lacking, give this blooming trick a try.

If turning the power on and off isn't enough to bloom your coffee all the way, you can also go ahead and use a spoon or a knife to mix your coffee grounds a bit. In particular, dark roast beans, like those used to make iced coffee, tends to repel water, making it more difficult for the hot water to penetrate the beans and extract the flavors and oils, so definitely bloom your coffee when making iced coffee!

Use Fresh Coffee Beans

Use Fresh Coffee Beans

Coffee, once roasted, begins to oxidize. When coffee beans begin oxidizing, they start to lose flavor due to the compounds that make up the flavor profiles breaking down. According to the National Coffee Association of U.S.A., your should buy freshly roasted coffee, and finish it within one to two weeks.


Coffee is no longer considered fresh after the two-week mark and will have lost a considerable amount of flavor when in comparison to a couple of days after roasting.


Note that coffee will continue to oxidize even when it's been brewed, so don't leave your coffee sitting around after you've made a pot!

Coffee Lovers, Look No Further

Now that you've got a shiny new coffee maker, you'll need some coffee, as well as some other odds and ends. Check out the links below for other great coffee-related products!
