Jess got me a small Krups coffee maker for my 28th birthday going on 5 years ago. It was the first coffee maker I ever owned. The size of the machine was perfect for my tiny New York apartment and the maximum that it could brew was 4 cups of coffee at a time, which suited me fine since I never really drank more than a cup or two in the morning. That little coffee maker has served me well over the years.
Lately, though, the coffee has not really been tasting great no matter how I cleaned the coffee maker and filter and base. And no matter which coffee I used in it. Also, when I have people over who drink coffee I often have to make multiple batches of coffee so that there is enough to go around.
So, I decided to take Erin‘s recommendation and I got this Grind & Brew 12-Cup Automatic Coffeemaker. It grinds! And brews! Up to 12 cups! And is programmable! Erin recently got this coffeemaker and was bragging about how great her coffee is tasting now.. and the best part is that Overstock has it for 40% off the retail price. Done!
As for coffee, my favorite lately has been Lion Coffee’s Toasted Coconut flavored whole bean coffee. I just got a shipment from Lion in last week and I just got my new coffee maker delivered today. I set it up and brewed a few cups and I can’t even describe the difference.
Now, what to do with that coffee bean grinder I bought a few years ago…
