I need to buy a new coffee maker. You all seem to know alot about coffee so I could use some help. Here is my criteria.

I like strong but not bitter coffee. I don't like a huge machine sitting on the counter. I make coffee probably only twice a week and no more than 6 cups at a time. Can anyone help me? And....I can't afford $700 for a coffee maker. :roll: Thanks.

You don't need a $700 coffee maker to produce good coffee. I've been pretty happy with Capresso's CoffeeTeam Luxe and at $199.99 it's not quite out of the ballpark. It does all the work, the only thing required of you is to dump the grounds and clean the basket. Other then that you can program it to make how ever much you require. The only problem is the brewer might still be bigger then you are wanting.
