There are tons of reasons why you should choose to buy a coffee maker with a timer. The most important one has to be convenience. It is a lot easier to brew coffee if you have a clear display with the brewing time, which in most cases can also be set up ahead of time.
Most brewers with a timer are programmable for up to 24 hours ahead, so you can just program your brew the night before and wake up to a full carafe.
All makers come with different functions and settings, but setting up the timer is a pretty straightforward process.
Look for the timing option that your coffee machine offers. This can be “program”, “delay brew”, “time”, or just a clock icon. Check the instructions for your machine, and see how it can be set. Most makers can be programmed by holding the brew button and pressing the timer button until you find the preferred time.
Well, it depends whether or not your coffee maker has an auto shut-off function or not. If it does, then running out the door in the morning without turning the appliance off is no biggie. The maker will turn itself off after a certain amount of time (usually about 2 hours for programmable drip makers).
If your coffee machine doesn’t include an automatic shut-off, then you should probably pay attention to switch the appliance off after using it to save electricity and lower your environmental footprint.
If your coffee maker has no timer, all is not lost. You can actually make it more automatic with a simple trick. All you need is an electric coffee maker, and a plug-in timer:
Tip: Make sure that the carafe is on to avoid some serious mess around the kitchen.
Now that you have some incredible options to choose from, the next step is to weigh the pros and cons and find the coffee maker with a timer that works for your morning routine, busy schedule, and most importantly, unique Java taste. Happy delayed brewing, people!
