    Suggest sticking with an SCAA certified brewer. They conform to standards and will assure continuous water at the right temperature.

    how do you drink your coffee normally? do you have a grinder and how much patience/time are you prepared to invest in getting a nice cup made every morning. you should answer before buying.

    btw, don't rule out pod machines as well. keurig or nespresso won't win barrista competitions, but they provide coffee for a 30 million americans now. the quality is better than what the majority of consumers can regularly make themselves and consistency and convenience are phenomenal. I hear that a third of Michelin starred restaurants now use nespresso machines. They work better than untrained waiters pulling shots with stale coffee and unadjusted grinders.

    doddsy, I use my espresso setup in the afternoon, but in the mornings I make one large mug of coffee and here's how;

    I use a conical burr grinder (mine's a Baratza Virtuoso, but to stay in your budget an Encore would work equally well). I use an electric kettle to heat the water. And I change up between a french press, and a Clever Coffee Dripper (I like full-immersion brewing).

    Using a setup like that allows you to control all the parameters of the brew, and will give you great results, and will cost under $200.

    The list that BoldJava posted would be what I would choose from if I wanted a more automated electric brewer.

    You might also consider a Chemex brewer. Or, if you really like to get involved, a siphon brewer such as a Yama, would serve you well too.

    But any of these will require a grinder, and a conical burr grinder will give you great results.

    ok great advice guy's. sorry i'm a really newbie but really intrested in learning is it true that if the water doesn't hit all the coffee grounds at the same time and soaks through I effects the flavour of the coffee

    In my opinion there are few options for your coffee brewing. But I would spend about 100 dollars on burr grinder first. After purchasing grinder, I would recommend for your purchase and try Aeropress. That should cost your around 20-25 dollars and that would give you good start on coffee brewing. Since you are not afraid of getting your hands dirty, try work on drip brewing method. I would use Hario brand but there are many nice hand drip coffee maker, Also French press and Siphon coffee maker. That should cost around 25-80 dollars for french press and 50-300 dollars for siphon coffee maker, depends on the type you would like to get but I find under 100 dollars should be sufficient enough.

    I believe those are the best way to brew your coffee.
