My recommendation would be to grab a Yama from SM. That's what I brew
every morning with, and it does a good job. I like the brew it puts out
better than drip, really. When my Presto Scand. died a few months ago,
and I didn't have the money for a TechVor...whatever, I decided I would
ditch the drip until and when I had money for the TV, if ever. For
quality coffee, the Yama was the best for the price range.
Of course, you can find good deals on Ebay as well. My first actual
coffee purchase back in 05 (after starting homeroasting and not counting
beans) was an electric Cory vacpot, looked like it was made in the 50s,
and might have been. But it worked and was a good experience.
But the stove top Yama gives me more control over how long it brews and
I get to watch the show. (The Cory electric is stainless steel.) And you
can't beat the service from SM. My first order broke in transit and
another was sent out right away. Go for it!
