The design of the ubiquitous drip coffee maker takes advantage of basic physics to keep costs down with minimal parts. Watch the video and you’ll never look at the old pot the same again.
Water goes in and coffee comes out. Simple, right? Although a coffee maker might be simple to use and employ minimal parts to get the job done (and keep the cost down in the process) the physics of the process is fascinating. Check out the above video to see how a coffee maker is engineered.
