I'm in love with my Bunn Speed Brew. Bunn is the same company that makes coffee makers for many restaurants/hotels and they're workhorses that go for many years. The Speed Brew is a home application that looks like a regular drip model but brews in half the time with just the right water temperature (195 degrees) provided for brewing. You can adjust from brewing just a travel mug, a few cups or a full pot. It's sleek design also looks great on the counter too!

You still have to make more than one cup at a time which was my point. Why would I need a thermos if I have a pot that makes about four full cups of coffee? I make a small pot of regular coffee in the morning and one small pot of decaf in the afternoon.

When I have houseguests, I can make up to 14 cups which saves me remaking coffee in the morning.

No one has ever complained about the quality of my coffee.

I've been using the cheapo walmart coffee maker for years without issue so far. I only drink coffee with my breakfast, but I use an unhealthy dose of cream and sugar with a generous amount of honey on top. It was only recently that I explored the idea of gradually switching to black coffee. I tried doing black coffee with the coffee maker I have and it's horrible. Colored water basically. I don't want to jump off the deep end by getting one with all the bells and whistle, but I have thought about getting a coffee maker with a grinder built in for convenience purposes.

I'm sure one has been mentioned in the last 16 pages but I'll ask for any recommendations

Nice neat little machine, the drawback for me is I want foamed milk and the keurig machine isn't the hottest cup of Joe.

I use distilled or purified water in my Keurig. I like Donut Shop coffee, but also like Kirkland (Costco brand) breakfast blend.

We don't drink coffee every day and when we do, just have a cup or two. So the Keurig is very convenient.

But I don't like the idea of a water reservoir inside either the Keurig or a drip coffee maker. If we don't drink coffee for several days, that water is just sitting there for days. And although you run Keurig cleaner or vinegar through to clean, you can't see or scrub the inside at all.

I like how with percolators like my mom used, you took the entire thing apart and cleaned everything. If we drank more than just a cup or two every couple of days, I'd think about getting a percolator.

We just got a Keurig too. It’s perfect for 2 people, who get up a different times, or if we just feel like a cup of coffee during the day. We waste a lot less coffee, and every cup is fresh. We buy the French Roast pods from Sam’s Club for $.29 a cup. The only drawback I can see, is that the pods are not recyclable here, which is unfortunate.

We have had at least a dozen coffee makers in our life and it seems that a $20. Mr. Coffee did just as good a job as a $200 Bunn. What DID make a difference is, when we had a water softener, we had to get a special part for our Bunn, in order for it to work right.
