If you can wait a few days, go to www.gevalia.com
and get your self a free, durable, programmable, automatic shut-off 12-pot coffee maker.
All you have to do is sign up for their coffee of the month club. For $14.95, they send you the coffee post and two bags of coffee of your choice. Then, cancel your membership before they ship you the next bags of coffee. If I remember right, they claim the pot would sell for $80 or something.
I've done this twice already and it's a great pot
Quasi-related: great tip for cleaning your coffee pot - two parts water and one part vinegar. Brew twelve cups of that (without coffee grounds, obviously) and then run another pot of just water to flush it out.
