While most automatic drip machines don't get water hot enough to extract full flavor, the Moccamaster KBG 741 brings water to the optimum off-the-boil temperature (196 degrees to 205 degrees) to extract the most complex tastes. A funnel in the lid delivers the coffee to the bottom of the pot and swirls it upward, so the brew is consistent from first sip to last. [$329; moccamaster.com]
