    Get a month of Gevalia and take theirs.

    If you want to buy, Bunn's are great the Cadillacs of coffee makers. They are ore pricey. I had a Black and Decker that I loved until the pot broke. I got a cheapo one for as much as the replacement pot.

    The coffee that goes into it and the maintenance of it are more important than the brand.

    it all depends on how much you want to spend...

    Bunn is the best standard coffee maker around, imo.

    Sunbeam is the cheapest.. Both will work.. but sunn will be more rugged and faster...


    If you want a expresso machine.. Id recommend a Saeco. Great machine.. with a 1 button operation :D

    Used standard drip machine from Braun.... Used various versions on 2 continents and 4 countries. I think thay sell for less than $20. But please don't think I have low coffee standards, I always use my own European import ... made from Indonesian beans :rolleyes:

    I'm in a funny situation with a coffee maker of my own...

    I while ago I got one of those Senseo coffee makers that uses the pods. I do love how it looks and it makes coffee right quick. Although the whole pod system is slightly confusing for me. Has anyone else tried the pods and are they pleased with it? Also does anyone know of any places that sell chai tea pods? I found once place... although it was also coupled with the words "rarest and most expensive" and Id rather not have a cup of chai that costs over 100 bucks for the pods. If I wanted to do something like that I would just take up cocaine since its cheaper and with the money saved go to starbucks.....

    thanks for all the tips.

    but it seems like the gevalia offer gets me to packs of coffee and a free
    coffee maker.

    which will be 15 bucks a month to stay in the offer.


    it seems like there is a referrel program as well, so if you want to get the bonus, let me know and i will wait for your referrel.

    sunday night central at 10pm i will wait until

    thanks!

    DJY: Another Canberra'n :)

    I have a saeco fully automatic. So far the best coffee machine for the home i have own (previous was a "kraps") which seemed to always have a "burnt" taste to the coffee

    I like the Starbucks coffee machines. They're built tough, look good, and carry good warranties (at least their espresso machines do).

    Depending on what you want to spend, you can get one of their machines for $30 - $100+.

    How big of a coffee maker are you looking for? My current coffee maker is great, IMO! :) It's by Hamilton Beach and it's called The BrewStation. Look under the "coffeemakers 10-12cup" section.

    I very much enjoy my Jura S9 automatic coffee/espresso/capuccino-machine. Swiss-made, rugged, produces excellent coffee. On the downside it WAS rather expensive and the TCO includes the regular replacements of scale-protection filters.
