    Whats a good coffee maker for less than 100? for the parents.

    Hi guys.

    Well the parents want a coffee maker they use to have a BUN coffee maker which made coffee super fast and my dad seems to believe super fast coffee means its a good coffee maker.

    So does anyone recommend a good coffee maker, with "good" meaning it makes coffee fast and has one of those tanks you fill up with a ton of water so you don't have to keep putting in water every time you want to make a pot of coffee for less than 100 bucks?

    The old coffee maker my dad took apart and now it doesn't work once he put it back together ha.

    Thanks!


    I use this one: Flavia Fusion Coffee maker (I discovered it at conference and I was hooked)


    Because it makes the best 1 cup of coffee I've tasted but if you drink a pot at a time it isn't cost efficent.

    I don't know of any specific coffee makers. But if you find a good
    one that is too expensive, check some places like overstock.com
    for a better price.

    If it 'ain't' broke why fix it? How about another BUNN coffee maker? Krups is a name you see often in high end places, but it's doubtful you'll find one under $100.

    I love my cuisinart products. Bunn does make the fastest pot of any coffeemaker though.

    The Bunns pour out hot water as fast as you pour in cold. I think that is what you're talking about? They are great.

    The best tasting and simplest method of production, IMO, is a Bodum french press. All you need is boiling water and grounds. Add some half and half and sugar and you have the richest, most flavorful coffee you could ask for.

    Word, but Cory's set to give em what the parents want. They don't want an education on the best manual way to make coffee; they want an "automatic" coffee making appliance.

    The corporations are very effective; their minions untiring, their message pervasive.

    Carry on.

    My first BUNN broke when I broke my neck(it was 7 years old). I loved that coffee pot. I have a new BUNN now, but it started to leak a few weeks ago. Some phantom kept turning off the warming feature off. I have since gotten both annoyances to stop, but still wary of the leaking.
