Hello! I'm a barista at a local coffee house. I love my job and I hope I'm good at it. But I'm totally at a loss as to what kind of home coffee maker to buy that makes a decent cup of coffee but doesn't cost an arm and a leg (barista....remember? ;-) I'm living on small town tips here)
I had a Bodum "volcano" (as my kids called it) but it recently bit the dust.
Any ideas? Thanks so much. Love this site!

How about a french press or a vacuum press or even one of those new Aerobie Aeropresses? I don't know if there's any automatic drip machines that can ensure full grind saturation and proper water temp and steep for an extraction that comes close to what you can do manually. Manual brewers are cheaper as well and the only electricity you'll need is for the kettle.
