Coffee, sweet elixir of life...

My most indulgent purchase to date has been a Delonghi Magnifica superautomatic espresso maker. I push a button, it grinds beans, makes me an americano with beautiful crema, and chucks a little puck of used grounds into the receptacle. Magical! Sadly, it's on its last legs. [more inside]

Fix my morning

When I turn my coffeemaker on, it acts like it's in the final stage of brewing (the loud gurgly part when all the steam comes out) the entire time. It results in painfully slow coffee brewing. Also, the end result is much less volumetrically than it should be -- I'll put 12 cups of water into the carafe, and get maybe 8 cups of coffee. What gives? [more inside]

So, I sabotaged my coffeemaker.

Coffee Idiotfilter: In some kind of zombielike haze, apparently I put ground coffee into my water reservoir, and then water, and then brewed my lovely, lovely on-sale Intelligentsia coffee AND DIDN'T NOTICE (which shows you what a coffee connoisseur *I* am). Now I need to clean it out. How? The instructions say to not even use a cloth inside the reservoir. [more inside]

What is this vintage coffee device? Can I get one?

What is the vintage kitchen device in the corner in this picture? It looks like a chrome football standing on three thin columns, with a spigot at the bottom. It appears to come apart into separate compartments, like a coffee maker. It says "Jet" near the spigot. I assume it is either a basket coffee maker or a percolator, but it doesn't appear to have an electric plug like I would expect for a stand percolator. I am unable to locate any information about this device on the internet. Is it possible to find one of my very own? [more inside]

What is the smallest size drip filter coffee machine I can buy in AU?

I want a drip coffee machine that takes up the smallest amount of space possible on my bench. It only needs to make a single cup of coffee. Ideally it should be programmable, but I'll settle for plugging it into a timer outlet if necessary. Because I want it to have coffee ready at a certain time every day, it needs to be a drip machine, not a french press or aeropress or whatever, although I know they would be smaller. I don't like coffee pods. What can I get and where can I buy it (in Australia)?

Coffee 101: sociology and technology

I don't drink coffee and most of my friends don't either, but I'd like to be able to offer a nice cup to occasional visitors who do drink coffee. What type of small-scale coffee maker would be a good choice: some kind of drip and filter method? French press? Should I buy a small amount of decent quality ground coffee and hope that it keeps well between coffee drinkers? (And what would be a safe, crowd-pleasing choice?) Or should I just forget offering potentially mediocre coffee and offer everyone tea and tisanes?

Make Me Coffee

I am looking for a specific type of coffee maker and hoping you have one that you love! I do not want a French press or other, similar, maker; nor do I want the style that uses those little cups (Krups). I do want a smaller drip machine that I can limit to 2 cups (4 cups max is fine), that works efficiently, and doesn't cost a ton of money. Something that also grinds beans would be fine but I understand that might make the cost a lot higher. [more inside]

Am I ruining my drip machine?

I make my morning coffee in a French press, but then I keep it hot by pouring it into the carafe of my drip machine while it's switched on. Is this somehow going to damage my coffee maker if I don't have any water in the reservoir? I just want the hot plate to keep it warm. Relevant info: I have the Michael Graves coffee maker from Target.

No more plastic in my coffee, please.

I am looking for an electric coffee maker that is not made of plastic. I have found several that are "stainless steel" in the sense that they are plastic wrapped in steel, or the carafe is steel, but what I want is a machine that does not heat the water in plastic. The only thing I have found is a vacuum coffee maker made entirely of glass, but that's not really what I want. I'm also not interested in a French press or a Chemex. Please help!

Has anyone tried cup at a time coffeemakers?

Has anyone had any experience with these new coffeemakers that only brew one cup at a time? It seems like a good idea but I was wondering if the concept outstripped the reality.
