DripCoffeeFilter: Help me find a great drip coffeemaker.
I am looking for a new coffeemaker. I currently have this coffeemaker
, which has served me well for about 5 years, but I no longer need nor want something this big.
Some details about my coffee set up:
-I have a great burr grinder and grind my beans fresh, so I do not need a grind-and-brew system.
-I reserve my french press for the weekends, so that's not an option for my weekday coffee needs.
-I don't necessarily need an alarm feature, like I said above, I like to grind my beans fresh right before brewing.
What I'm looking for:
-Small form factor. We just moved and I don't have a ton of space for my coffee station.
-I know it's strange, but if it's not that tall, that would be awesome. It's actually kind of hard to fill up my reservoir because I'm not that tall either (5'8").
-Full pot only. I brew 6-8 cups at a time, every weekday morning.
-Gold filter-capable. Not sure if every pot is compatible, I've never used one aside from the one that came with my grind-and-brew.
-Not that expensive. I can see spending up to about $50 for a decent pot, but I don't think I'm willing to go into 3 digits for this endeavor.
-I do not need a thermal carafe, this coffee goes from the pot to my thermos pretty much as soon as it's done brewing.
Hope me, MeFites, I need my caffeine fix!
