There's no getting around the fact that the Oxo Barista Brain 12-cup is a massive coffee maker. Oxo disguises its size well, however, through a very efficient use of space.
The filter basket is also huge and accepts flat-bottomed basket paper filters.
If you're into watching bubbles, the Barista Brain won't disappoint. The large glass kettle's contents swirl vigorously as temperatures reach the boiling point.
During the calibration process you can set the coffee brewing temperature. Likewise you can heat water between 174 and 212 degrees F when in electric kettle mode.
A scale in the kettle base senses how much water you have to work with. You can then brew anywhere between 4 and a full 12 cups of hot java.
The Barista Brain 12-cup uses a circular shower head to evenly drip hot water over coffee grounds in the filter basket.
One of the few coffee makers to earn the Specialty Coffee Association of America's certification for brewing coffee correctly, I can confirm that the Barista Brain makes very delicious drip.
