My brother's old coffee maker just died. It was ancient, and he and my sister-in-law are looking to get a new one. I'm assuming that at least one or two people on this thread brew coffee occasionally , so you all seem like a good group to ask for advice. They're looking to spend US$100 - $200 on a coffee maker that looks nice enough that they won't be embarrassed by keeping it on their counter (their last one was - I swear - a Mr Coffee that used to belong to my parents and which, I think, dated back to the Carter administration; they kept it put away when not in use). And that $100 - $200 must include a grinder, either separate or as part of the coffee maker. They'd also like a carafe/thermos, again, either separate or part of the coffee maker. They want at least a 10 cup capacity. I have this Cuisinart, which seems to be exactly what they want. I've had it for maybe 8 months, and love it. It's a bit of a pain to clean the built-in grinder, but I like it. However, I didn't shop all that much before I bought it, so I was wondering if anyone had any better ideas. It doesn't even have to be an automatic drip... but since my sister-in-law is involved in the decision, and since she's hated that Mr Coffee for years (why they didn't get a different one earlier is beyond me), the only "real" qualification (beyond a basic ability to brew coffee) is that it all needs to look good. Suggestions?
