What’s it like living inside the head of a barista? We like to think there are a lot of coffee terms floating around, as well as images of portafilters and perfect rosettes, but we may never know. With the OXO Barista Brain 12-Cup Coffee Brewer, however, there is no guessing required!

Certified by the SCAA, this 12 -cup drip coffee maker (and kettle!) comes packed with features. Choose how much coffee you’d like to brew, between 4 and 12 cups, and the water will come up to optimal temperature in the kettle. The water is then pumped into the brew basket where it is evenly dispersed for full coffee grounds saturation. Or, if you’re feeling like a cuppa tea, choose to skip the coffee brewing process and boil water to one of several preferred infusion temperatures!

Features and Functionality

  • SCAA Certified - This coffee maker has been through the rigorous testing of the SCAA and bears the stamp of approval that it brews at the correct temperature for a great coffee extraction.
  • Removable Water Kettle - The water reservoir doubles as a removable, glass water kettle for making tea, hot cocoa or ramen noodles!
  • Internal Scale - With a built in scale, the OXO Barista Brain monitors water volume, allowing you to only brew the amount of coffee you want. What does that mean? If you have eight cups of water in the kettle, you can choose to only brew four cups of coffee. It will only disperse the amount of water that you've chosen.
  • Easy To Use - The simple LED interface and dial/button make using this coffee maker a breeze. Just turn and push your way to the perfect cup.
  • Removable Silicone Mixing Tube - An internal mixing tube helps blend the coffee throughout the carafe as it brews.
  • Auto-Drip Stop - If the carafe is removed during the brew cycle, a sensor will temporarily stop brewing to prevent drips. Replace the carafe within 60 seconds to resume brewing.
  • Wake-Up Timer - Set a desired 'wake-up' time and the coffee maker will automatically start your pre-programmed brew cycle.
  • Some Like It Hot - Certified by the SCAA, the Barista Brain brews at the optimal temperature.
  • Brainy - As the name implies, this coffee maker really is smart. OXO seems to have thought through just about every brewing scenario.
  • Dual Purpose - Cramped kitchens will rejoice at this two-in-one brewer and kettle...as long as it fits.
  • A Bit Large - Due to the Barista Brain's dual purpose, mentioned above, it has a fairly large footprint.
How Does it Compare?

The OXO On Barista Brain 12-Cup Coffee Maker is similar in size to the Technivorm Moccamaster Grand, but with the added bonus of a built-in kettle.

A Note About Coffee & Cups

Let us break it down for you: Although 8 ounces equals a cup in the baking world, a US cup of coffee is measured at 6 ounces and a European cup of coffee is measured at 4.25 ounces. This is why we sometimes list ounces to paint a more accurate picture of capacity.

Tips and Tricks

Adjust the boiling point of your water, due to altitude, to get a customized brew!
