Topic: Cheaper drip maker (16 msgs / 304 lines)
1) From: Bill
I have a friend who I am slowly inching towards coffee appreciator.  Slowly.
 But she's making another step and is looking to get a new coffee maker,
moving from the kind that holds the coffee in a tank... for days at a time,
conceivably!  So, I've seen discussion on the list regarding drip makers but
hadn't followed closely.  So, to ask an oft-asked question: what's a good
cheaper drip maker?  I'm talking like $30-$50...  Any recommendations?  I
appreciate any help.Bill

You best bet is to buy water kettle, thermometer and pour over.  That should
be in that price range.

Try this page out:http://sweetmarias.com/prod.brewers.shtmlThere are all sorts, most in that range.  But for me, in that range, I'd
go for manual, unless you can find one of the Presto Scandanavians cheap.
I don't look for them, so I'm not sure what they're fetching.

Tried steering her in the manual pourover makers, but doesn't look like she
wants to go that route.  I guess I should have noted, "auto" drip brewers.
 Any ideas?  Bill

All of the women in my family (4 generations) have  the Porcelain #1 Filter
Drip Pot Set.  You will find it near the bottom of the page Jason gave.  Its
easy to use, repeatable, feels really good in the hands, is small enough to
travel or have one at the office and one at home.  It also fulfils all of
our taste needs at the least cost.  While most of us have a few other ways
we make coffee we all agree that this is a great cup of coffee. It just
needs a great cup.  We also found that the lovely ones SM has feel good in
the hand.  
Moka Brown Amalfi Cappuccino Cup is a current favorite but their  Sweet
Maria's Skunk Cups from Italy are really nice looking and I plan to get a
couple of those soon.http://sweetmarias.com/prod.espresso.shtml#monkeycupWhen you are first changing to great coffee the look and feel seem to have
come first in our family.  Now we all talk about the taste but it used to be
the look.

My favorite non electric method is to use a Chorreador de café
I have included a link with illustrations and directions for use. I dearly 
hope it doesn't violate any of the rules for this list. That is not my 
intent. That said, this is the way my coffee will be made while visiting my 
in-laws next month.

I can't believe I blew it this big. Please do not follow the links near the 
bottom of the page I inserted a link for. I was focusing on the Chorreador 
de café and not the rest of the page.
The beans we buy from Tom & Maria are the best.

rest at least three minutes....

i don't think there is any on the market right now, she will get much better
repeatable coffee from a manual pour over or a French press, for the money
those really are the only real good options.

There's always salt & baking soda: no flouride, antiseptic or  
whiteners; and it's messy--but it does get your teeth clean if you  
brush properly and adequately.

This is a multi-part message in MIME format.
Some grocery stores even sell pourovers for ten dollars or less. I 
cannot imagine drinking coffee that's been sitting around for a few 
hours...let alone DAYS! Big ugh on that one. I'd rather go w/o coffee.

The Presto Scandinavian probably comes closest. It gets the water up to 
the right temperature. The only big issue with them seems to be many 
have had problems with the electronic on-off switch to stop working for 
some reason. I had one and liked it, but then that happened to me a 
little more than a year of use. So, it might be a good choice to break 
her in. Once it dies on her (and she might get lucky and get one that 
last for a few years) she won't be satisfied with other drip brewers and 
be willing to invest in the Techno drip Tom sells, or be willing to do a 
little more work to get the same good flavors, like a vac pot.

You could check out Gevalia's offers ("free" coffee maker with 
subscription).  The last time I saw them their coffee maker was a 
$100 relabeled Cuisinart Brew Central.  Subscribe, get the maker, cancel.

I'm guilty of doing that... told some friends/family about it and I think I have made about 10 different people guilty of that now.  I even tried their coffee just to see.  After swishing anything in site in my mouth to get the taste of their coffee out of my mouth, I decided to cancel and keep the free gift.  And then I discovered a Chemex and realized it really wouldn't be that hard to stand there in the morning and pour water over grounds.

Yep -- and I've noticed that particular Cuisinart is still $79 even on 
sale! I think I saw it for $59 once, but that was reconditioned and not 
brand new. It's a great deal from Gevalia for only $15, including the 
shipping! I ordered it in order to give the coffee maker to my sister. 
She enjoys my home roasted beans, and I was tired of having her brew 
them in a Mr. Coffee.
When you try the Gevalia coffee, you'll certainly appreciate your own 
freshly roasted beans! Although not over-roasted, they're certainly 
stale and taste nothing like the so-called origin they are supposed to 
be. Cancellation is easy. Just call a few days after you receive the 
package and tell them you don't like their coffee.
