I'm just starting to get into grinding beans and trying new coffees.
I have a keurig now, but I am starting to look for a new small regular coffee brewer, maybe 4 cup max. Anyone have any suggestions on a decent one.

These are cool:

Or just get a french press, it is the cheapest way to make a good cup.

All I want for christmas is a Brazen Coffee maker. :)

These look really neat. I could do away with my hot water kettle and still have this for that job. :tu

Funny you bring this up. My Keurig machine continually has problems, so I have stopped using it. My trusty Mr. Coffee brewer just went on the fritz. Two machines, no coffee.

So, I am in the market. Not sure what I am going to get. I may just go back with a Mr. Coffee. It has lasted about 8 years. $45.

The idea of a Brazen machine is cool. Just not sure its worth the money.

I love my Brazen and you can make 4 cups in it. :)

Brazen looks very cool but too much $$ for me. I love my French Press. I also do not have any counter space or cupboard space to store a larger brewer.

It takes the same area as my Capresso did. So it is not that big.

Never had any problems with it for the last 4 years... and even if I did it could be easily replaced...

15 Dollars... Walmart... :tu

I am a coffee snob. I roast my own coffee and own my own grinder, and the water has to be just the right temprature. This is why I like the Brazen. If you just want a cup of Caffene and dont care about the taste than Black and Decker will do just fine.

LoL... me and my sad coffee maker...

I like a gourmet cup every now and again... but more often then not if I am drinking coffee its not for enjoyment... its for a hang over... or a 12 hour shift... or for when I gotta do things I generally don't enjoy doing... LoL

I am glad there are people that do take their coffee seriously out there... one of my more experienced friends introduced me to Cuban coffee... Like crack in a cup...
