    Have you tried using a french press? The cup quality is far superior to a home drip system.

    If you use the search function, you will find quite a bit of posting about techinvorm. I recommend it to all of my customers, and one actually went out and bought one and she couldn't believe how much better her, meaning my , coffee tasted now that she can brew it at 200F.
    You want cream and sugar?
    NO COFFEE FOR YOU! NEXT!

    Of course I've tried the french press. And I like it, but it's not a bad idea to have a drip machine for some reasons.

    1.- I use to take my coffee to wherever I go, so when rushing I don't get to do all the procedure. I think a drip machine could help and keep the standard on taste.

    2.- I like the muddy taste, but not always.

    3.- Using the french press, requires some technique and lots of trial & error. I find the drip machina a little more straightforward way to a good cup.

    I agree, and with a couple of simple, and inexpensive steps, you can make a darn nice cup of java with an auto-drip. We use good quality fresh beans, then grind them fresh with a burr grinder. We use one of several different beans. We enjoy some from Gevalia, some from GMCR, and some from our local Barnies. We use the CuisinArt burr grinder. We pre-heat a thermal caraffe and when the coffee is done, pour it into the caraffe.

    Great coffee, minimul effort and expense.

    ALthough, we still want to try the French press method someday.

    Nice respone made me laugh. Man you really dont know how to use a french press. It's not hard to be consistent. If ya like drip you like drip.
    As a roaster I would rather have you drinking coffee then not at all.
