I had an old cuisinart coffee maker that finally broke. It was ok but I didn't love it.

I just bought a replacement coffee maker (I think it's mr coffee). It's cheap and brews ok, but one thing really bothers me is that it
isn't very hot at all. It's like a little over lukewarm coffee.

I have a feeling there are a lot of seasoned coffee drinkers on here. I'd love to hear what coffee maker you'd recommend
The cuisinart I purchased had rave reviews, now I think half of them had to be fake. I really don't trust reviews anymore anyways.

Looking for just a basic coffee maker that makes coffee flavored coffee that is hot (no need for fancy anything, just coffee)
What do you recommend - or even don't recommend?

Don't get anything fancy, they break.

Stick with the cheap ones, they're the most reliable.

Maybe one from Mexico. The Chinese ones are kind of nice too, but stay away from Filipino or Indian ones. English are not too good either. Might try Italian or Swiss, maybe Spanish. They will all want something in return though. Like citizenship.

I prefer my coffee with cream, not indentured servitude.

BUNN Velocity Brew is my favorite. Cranks out 10 cups worth of precious in no time.

It's a little pricey but I just got a Bonavita and LOVE it.

I disagree, although there is some truth to it, the fancier it is with the more parts/options many times the more that can break.

Unless you need the ability to program it to brew at a specific time, my vote goes to a French press. Very basic, will never break (unless you drop it), and brews a waaay better tasting cup than any standard drip machine. Cheaper, too. They also come in several sizes, depending on how many cups you want/need to brew at a time. Just make sure you get a coarse-ground coffee instead of the standard grind.
Just put the grounds in the press, heat up water in a teapot (or regular pot), pour onto grounds, stir, wait a couple minutes, press the plunger down, and done. Couldn't be easier, no electronic/moving parts to break or wear down, and they last forever. My grandmother gave me hers (she'd had it for decades) for my 20th birthday, I've now had it for 15 years and it still works like it's brand new.

I'v had a few coffeemakers and in the end I went back to Folgers instant and a tea kettle. Reminds me when my Mom was alive and we would have a cup in the morning before doing chores. A familiar taste and memory.

I tell virtually no one, but for the BEST coffee you will ever smell or drink, 'The Straw Ibis' and 'Highlander Grog'

Logan Utah
caffeibis.com... under flavored coffee's , but you can't go wrong with any of their Roasts.

The best coffee still comes from an old fashioned perk coffee maker. Presto makes one and so do others. All chrome exterior and continues for decades to have the best flavor-no matter what coffee you put in it. Old reliable. Not watered down, not luke warm-just right.

ANYTHING but a Keurig.

I would need a coffee maker to make me coffee before I was ready to fumble with a french press.
I actually have one, and yes it makes good coffee but I like to basically have a pot keeping warm so I can get a cup whenever.

Ah, gotcha. Then I'm of no use in this discussion, haha. I've never owned a drip coffee pot.

I was actually considering getting a commercial bunn but this one looks interesting!

Folgers instant

I'm am totally not an instant coffee type of girl, I know others that swear by it. I hate to say it but to me it tastes like dirty cigarette water.

Have you considered cold brew? Look into the toddy cold brew system.

Also, person above is right.. for the best quality brew, its hard to beat a French press. For espresso, I dig my basic Bialleti.

For ease of use, I love my keurig.

Hamilton Beach #46205 standard model has been great for 5 years and going strong every day. Has some great
features that are handy. Amazon sells it.
Buy the goldstone brew basket with it. Paper coffee filters suck!
