Need a new coffee maker

Postby spodog » Thu Apr 23, 2009 1:56 pm

I have a KRUPS brand currently. Lately, it has decided to start peeing warm water onto my counter every time I use it.

Any recommendations on a good one that will last longer than 12 months?

That's funny, my coffee maker just took a crap on me too....I actually got it from my dad, same coffee maker I've had forever. Actually now that I think about it, the coffee maker was probably older than me. 8-o

it was a Mr. Coffee...guess that's what I should get again. :-?

I've been looking at ones with stainless containers, they are much more durable(obviously) and hold their heat much better. ;-D

I got a Cuisinart DCC-1100 series a couple months ago, works great. Programmable, brews fast, tells me when it needs cleaned.

How much coffee do you make in the morning? a whole pot or just a couple cups? If you just drink 1-2 cups I highly reccomend getting a coffee press. They are a little more work, but the coffee is so much better. Basically a coffee press is a glass cylinder that comes with a lid. attached to the lid is a plunger with a wire mesh filter on the bottom of it. You put in the coffee grounds first then pour in the water. After the coffee brews, you push down the plunger, separating the coffee from the grounds.

Good job, Jake. I was just coming to post this. A coffee press, or French press, is the only way to go.

I have two Bodum presses, but there are other good brands on the market.

Yeah, I have a press that I use on occassion, mostly camping.

I'm looking for the workhorse, 6 cup a day machine to just sit on the counter and do it's thing though. One that I can fill the night before, set the timer and let it do the work while I'm getting ready.

Well there goes my help =P. I totally understand though, i have some cheap little pot that isnt that great but works. I can answer most questions about coffee though, I work at starbucks and actually care about coffee unlike most of the people that work there. I'd like to work at a small local coffee shop, but they dont have benefits :~(
