First thing you should know is that I start every, and I mean every, day with a hot cup of coffee. Second thing you should know is that I am a coffee snob! I believe that coffee beans should only be ground the night before one plans to use them. I also firmly believe that when measuring coffee grinds one should use a heaping tablespoon - no if, ands or buts about it. The day can not properly start if I do not have a hot cup of strong coffee in my hand.
Which leads me to my problem. My coffee maker is dying and I need a new one. Stat!!!
Should I try the Bonavita 8-Cup Coffee Marker? I like that it has the thermal carafe but I do not like that I can not set the brew time the night before. And the fact that it only brews 8 cups worries me.
I have also thought that I should just replace my Cuisinart with the latest upgrade; the Cuisinart Extreme Brew. I love that I can program it the night before but I am not to happy with the hot plate. After a while the coffee can taste a little off to me. But then again the price point is great!
Or do I bite the bullet and invest in my next coffee maker? I have been hearing wonderful things about all of Technivorm's coffee markers for a long time. Yes, I know they can get the water really hot, really fast. Yes, I know that coffee snobs all over sing their praises. Yet I can't get over how much they cost! (Hubby's note- I just checked the prices and neither can I!)
So what is a coffee snob to do!?!
