Best BPA-Free Coffee Maker Round Up 2017 Reviews

WHAT IS BPA?

So, now that everyone in North America is running screaming from the evil that is Bisphenol A or hardened plastic parts in food and beverages items, aka BPA, the question is, what is a coffee lover to do?  Give up the beloved bean and live the rest of your days collecting rainwater with only your tongue?

Perhaps not. Fortunately there is a more sensible solution. It is entirely possible to purchase BPA-free coffee makers, plastic free coffee grinders, a coffee maker without plastic or a BPA free drip coffee maker. It just takes a little effort and a bit of legwork… which fortunately you do not have to do as we have helpfully compiled a list of some of the best BPA free coffee makers that are out there.

Often overlooked, the percolator is an excellent choice for those attempting to avoid plastic brew parts. It is possible some of the non brew parts may be plastic (ie the handle etc).

This is a hard wearing, long lasting, stylish item that looks graceful in any kitchen and takes up a lot less space than a lot of other coffee makers will do.

SCAA-approved, this is a stylish and also rather technological looking contraption that is sure to impress just as much for its looks as its tasty coffee. You can choose between brewing 2-4 or 5-9 cups at a time. 

Despite looking scary, it is not as difficult to operate as you may be thinking. The thermal carafe ensures things are kept HOT which is a complaint of many a more “traditional” coffee brewer.

There’s something refreshingly old school and simple about this elegant Japanese import. It does what it says on the tin, or cup. Available in three different materials, ceramic, glass or stainless steel. This combines the practical with an effective coffee filtering system for stress-free one-cup satisfaction.

This particular version will provide up to four cups. If you just want the smaller, one cup size you could try the smaller 155 filters and wave brewer. Proving once and for all that a decent cup of coffee doesn’t have to be a colossal carry on, take up acres of kitchen space or need an engineering degree to master!

Made from glass, no brewing parts containing BPA will come into contact with the beverage. What people like about Chemex is its purity but also simplicity. As long as you have a hot water supply you can have coffee – no electricity required. 

Although this may take longer to set up and achieve a pot of coffee initially, the pay off, as well as being in the taste, is the quick and easy clean up time afterwards. Just swill it under the tap and you’re done. There are no fiddly bits and pieces to deal with here.  It is also relatively hard wearing and long lasting – as long as you don’t drop it!
