The Zojirushi EC-DAC50 is a simple coffee maker that was designed to satisfy all types of coffee drinkers. Do you chug down 3 cups every morning or are you just looking to a pot to brew when you have guests over? This coffee maker is great for any purpose.

The Zojirushi EC-DAC50 is a sturdy and well designed 650 watt drop coffee maker that can brew up to 5 cups of delicious coffee. It is a very easy to use coffee maker with no little things you need to watch out for, just push the button and let it brew. Enjoy a delicious cup of coffee at home, whenever you want. The Zojirushi EC-DAC50 uses numerous features to ensure the great tasting coffee every time you brew. The concealed water filter removes impurities such as chlorine from the water before it is used to brew the coffee. Water is one of the most important ingredients in coffee so it’s important that it carries no taste of its own. The water filter is replaceable for continued efficiency. Unlike many other coffee makers, the Zojirushi EC-DAC50 features a filter cone that sits within the decanter. This makes the coffee maker more compact but also ensures the ground beans are properly soaked during brewing.

Going back to the simplicity of the Zojirushi EC-DAC50, its mostly due to the clever design. One of the main benefits is the removable water reservoir which allows you to take the reservoir to the sink to fill it, no need to carefully pour the water into the reservoir. The filter design also makes it much easier to clear out the ground beans and it stops the machine from dripping onto the hot plate after you removed the carafe. Although, the Zojirushi EC-DAC50 is very convenient in terms of design, it does not feature most of the technological functions we have come to expect. If you really like auto on/off functions or a brew pause button then the Zojirushi EC-DAC50 will disappoint but it more than makes up for this with the coffee taste.

I can highly recommend the Zojirushi EC-DAC50 to anyone like for a smaller convenient coffee maker. If you are the only coffee drinker in the house, you don’t need to brew a 12 cup batch which makes this machine much faster and easier for you to use. Japanese products are also well known for their durability and the Zojirushi EC-DAC50 doesn’t dissapoint when it comes to that, you can use it for years to come!
