Zojirushi Coffee Makers

Zojirushi has some small appliances. Their bread machines are popular as a higher end home baking system. They also make a couple coffee makers. What makes them different is that they have ways of making iced coffee easier.

Their Fresh Brew Plus 12-Cup Coffee Maker allows you to brew iced or hot coffee in the same machine. The iced coffee will be more concentrated to make up for the ice you add. It has 4 settings for the warming plate so you can turn it off if you make Japanese iced coffee – coffee that is brewed directly into ice. It has a glass carafe. It comes with an ice basket that helps with measurement of how much ice to use.

The Fresh Brew Thermal Carafe Coffee Maker brews up to 10 cups of coffee. It has a pre-infusion cycle that wets the coffee grounds that allows the coffee to bloom.

Both coffee makers have a filter basket that side loads making it easier to keep under cabinets.
