You are considering the purchase of a new coffee maker to replace your current model (which is stylish but produces, at best, average-tasting coffee and lacks a thermal carafe).
You wonder if your readers would care to share their experience with this model, or make recommendations for a different model.
Minimum requirements for the coffee maker include:
- Thermal carafe
- Water filtration system
- Small-batch option
- Programmable timer
Note: You politely request that your readers not recommend an espresso machine or French Press, as these options are incompatible with your family members.
