I like Cuisinart drip coffee makers -- they're well built, heat the water properly, and their insulated carafes are handy. Don't get one that grinds the beans for you. Grinding beans and brewing are very different functions and you should get different machines for each. Here's a listing on Consumer Search of coffee maker reviews: http://www.consumersearch...

When I was in Paris a few years ago, I stayed in a small apartment that had a Melitta coffee maker. It was the best home-dripped coffee I'd ever had. (Of course it was Paris and there was the coffee and the water...and it was Paris!) We bought one on line when we got home, and it was quite good--and FAST--a most desirable quality in a drip coffee maker in my opinion. We currently have a Braun, and it's also fine--and fast--but without an insulated carafe, I like to transfer the coffee to a carafe if it's going to be sitting around for any length of time. The hot plate really degrades the coffee.

The house we rent in Florida has a Hamilton Beach Brew Station. It drips the coffee into an insulated chamber and you get your coffee by pushing your mug into a little lever. I love that thing. I'm waiting for the Braun to break so I can get one.
