I am a coffee-holic. There is nothing I enjoy more than a piping hot cup of coffee in the morning..... ....but it has been years since I have enjoyed the pleasure. I always seem to end up buying crappy coffee makers that don't deliver. Let me start by saying that Mr. Coffee has got to be the absolute worst of the bunch. I bought their so-called "elite" model a few years back. The damn thing will not serve coffee that is above hot tap water temperature, and if you try to make more than 4 cups at once (the capacity is 12) the grinds overspill into the pot. I am not looking to spend a fortune on a good coffee maker, though I am not looking to skimp either. I can spend up to $150 if need be. I suppose the answer to my problem is a coffee maker that remains powered on with its own reservoir of water to keep hot. Perhaps I don't need to go this route. The most popular makers seem to be the $100 Cuisinarts. though reviews on them seem to be horrible -- particularly for the fact that they need to be taken apart and cleaned often. Anyone have a really dependable coffee maker that delivers piping hot coffee every time? Perhaps with its own attached grinder? Thanks for the help.
