Which? filter coffee machine tests

You'd expect every filter coffee machine to be able to make a good brew, but our tests have uncovered some that fall short. Our coffee tasting expert rates the flavour, texture and aroma of coffee made by each filter coffee machine we test. We've found that some make a watery, unappetising brew while others have wowed us with their rich, flavoursome coffee.

While making tasty coffee is a crucial ask for a filter machine, you'll also want to avoid one that's slow, loud and unnecessarily tricky to use. Our tests go further than anyone else - we uncover the strengths and weaknesses of each product so only the very best earn our Best Buy accolade.

Which? is independent - we don't accept advertising or freebies. You can trust our reviews to give you the full, impartial truth about filter coffee machines.
