Can you recommend a good drip coffee maker? Most important criterion: Makes HOT, lip-scalding coffee.
I like my coffee freakishly hot--so it's still barely drinkable even after I have added milk and sugar. Beyond this, I am not a coffee aficionado. My corner deli has a food service-grade machine that seems to have no problem making lots of very hot coffee.
I just took the plunge and bought the Cuisinart Brew Central
, largely based on the reviews at amazon.com and coffeegeek.com. It's great, but it doesn't get the coffee hot enough for my tastes (although it does get hotter once it is in the carafe due to the heat plate).
Since this is my first hands-on experience with a drip coffeemaker, and because it comes well recommended, I don't know if all drip machines are like this, or if there are other better ones out there. The Bunn line of machines look like a good choice, but they don't have a clock/timer feature.
Any recommendations? Is this a basic limitation of drip coffeemakers?
