The convenience of drip coffee makers means you can make your morning cup of coffee in your own kitchen any time of day. Of course, the quality of that cup can vary depending on the type of coffee beans, the grind, the water used, and the coffee maker. To make a consistently great cup of coffee, you need a special kind of coffee maker—one that is certified to meet specific criteria defined by an elite organization of experts and tasters of coffee. That group is the Specialty Coffee Association (SCA). 

Coffee makers certified by SCA aren’t just any bean brewers. Among the requirements for drip coffee makers to obtain the SCA certification, they must meet stringent criteria including the following: 

  • Their baskets must meet the proper ratio of coffee to water; roughly two tablespoons of coffee for every six ounces of water. 
  • They must rapidly heat the water to ideal temperature of at least 197 degrees Fahrenheit and ensure that the coffee grounds aren’t in contact with the water for longer than eight minutes.
  • And the SCA must replicate the results of their tests via several coffee makers time and time again to verify consistent performance.
