How do know when your coffee maker is kaput?
I have a programmable drip coffee maker. Later it has been evaporating the water rather than brewing coffee. After it is all evaporated then it switches in to self-clean mode - which it seems to have already accomplished. I'm not programming it for self-clean. Has this happened to anyone else? I suspect it's time for a new one but this wasn't a bottom of the line coffee pot. I feel like replacing them every 5 years is wasteful.

I use single serve melitta cones with paper filters. Even when I'm making coffee for 2 or 3 of us. Or a hario cone over an insulated thermos. I also like French Press but I just broke the carafe.
I just don't think electric coffee makers make good coffee. It always tastes stale.
I'm starting to think I have a bit of a problem...
