The Bodum Bistro b. over gives the electric drip system a much-needed overhaul. First, the rubber-shelled brewer heats water to the optimum temperature – essential for great extraction. Next, the water is showered evenly over grounds – another machine rarity. Finally, a permanent, titanium-plated mesh filter keeps flavors pure, and a double-walled thermos keeps coffee warm so there's no need for a hot plate. [$250;]
