I'm not a coffee drinker. Neither is my wife. I know how to make a pot of coffee. I love the smell of coffee. I'm more of a tea drinker, though. Lemon Soother, Constant Comment or Orange Spice. Or somethin' like that. Funny, because my dad mainlined Hills Bros. and Dunkin' Donuts coffee.

Mom still drinks a pot of coffee every day.

Her coffee maker pooped out on her last week. My job was to help her find a replacement. So, I turned to you for recommendations.

I heard Keurig and Hamilton Beach Brewstation.

Cathy was kind of excited about the Keurig. That is, until my buddy Cap'n Ron suggested,

Forget the Keurig get a Bunn! Used in most restaurants. Fastest and best coffee maker I ever had!"

My sister told me,

Cuisinart. Great coffee, but the automatic timers don't last long."

The Med City Movie Guy, Chris Miksanek added,

I switched to tea 6 months ago."

So, what did we end up with?

I can't believe my mom went without coffee for almost a week! And the rest of us survived it!

Thanks for all the great suggestions!
