    What are your recommendations for a good coffee maker?

    Hello everyone. I'm looking to get a new coffee maker. The one I have at home is just a little cheap Mr. Coffee pot that never seems to make a pot of coffee that tastes any good. I use filtered water, and have tried different amounts of grinds for each cup, but haven't been able to find anything that works for me. I drink my coffee black 95% of the time, no cream or sugar. At work here, we have a decently sized Community Coffee machine (I live in Louisiana), which seems to make pots that are only slightly better than what I make at home. Basically...everything I drink seems too bitter. I've had the same brews of coffee at places like IHop and the like down here and their black coffee tastes great, which I'm guessing is probably attributed to their more expensive coffee machines. My question is...what is something decently priced that I can get for home use that will make a good cup?

    Hello Jarl,

    Welcome to the Coffee Forums website.

    We have had a lot of discussions regarding coffee makers for home use. There are all sorts of machines and methods for making coffee.

    Are you mainly interested in finding a drip coffee maker?

    How much do you have in mind when you say that you're looking for something that's decently priced?

    Another option would be a French Press. Have you explored that?

    Yes ma'am, I'm mainly interested in a drip coffee maker...just something I can pour store bought pre-ground coffee in. I guess for decently priced I'd say something in the $150 range or lower. I haven't looked into a French Press but I'll definitely see what they're all about.

    30.00 for a french press and 300.00 for a Technivorm.

    Press is a great low cost option, but I wouldn't waste time with pre-ground coffee in one as most you find will probably be too fine and leave you with lots of sediment. For an auto type drip machine I highly suggest the BUNN Phase Brew as I seriously doubt anything comes close in simplicity and cost. It competes with Technivorm/others for much less. It really shouldn't be classified as a drip machine as it's really more like an automatic pourover in operation. Brew temperature and flow rate are incredibly consistent due to the design. Can also be found in a thermal carafe version for a bit more $. Use mine to brew 2-3 batches of black tea daily. Have done so for over 1 year now without a single issue.

    I really doubt that you'll find such a combination. Let us know if you do.

    Actually there is a unit that will grind and brew, just can't remember where I saw it. Not sure if it will do a single cup or small pot

    Cuisinart and Krups both make grind and brew coffee makers. But I doubt that you could brew a single cup serving with them.

    well i found one but its about 900 dollars. don't mind paying a little more but not that much. I own a Keurig. honestly its not bad but, there is no way to clean out the reservoir and i can't get past that every time i have a cup.
