I don't know if Tom's article about drip machines in Tiny Joy was already discussed since I'm a relative newcomer: One thing about that article - Tom only mentions the Technivorm as a machin= e that gets up to the proper temp. Maybe that's because Technivorms are what he sells, I don't know but I was wondering if Tom is unaware of other machines that get up to the proper temperature and make good coffee. My Presto Scandinavian does as does the Capresso MT500. Also I found that the Melitta something or other that my father purchased recently also gets up t= o 200 degrees and makes very good coffee. I think that while Tom has a great point about the Brauns, Mr. Coffees and Krups junk of the world he was short-changing some of the other good drip machines. While I do believe that the technivorm is tops, it's possible to have excellent daily drip coffee from something other than the Technivorm. brad On 3/15/06, Brett Mason wrote: <Snip>

The Melitta of my father's that I'm referring to is not a Clarity. It's just a standard Melitta with cone filter. It may be a Fastbrew but it look= s slightly different from the current Fastbrews on their website so it could be the last generation. He just recently bought it though. I measured tem= p at the head two days ago and it gets up to 200 degrees, although I didn't calibrate my parents' thermometer that I used. brad On 3/15/06, Justin Marquez wrote: <Snip> rms <Snip> f <Snip> ee. <Snip> hat <Snip> ets <Snip> as a <Snip> e was <Snip> e <Snip> p <Snip>
