Coffee & Tea 10

Which machine/device(s) will give me the absolute best cup of coffee I can possibly brew at home?

After having gone through an endless number of drip coffee makers over the years, we are still not delighted with our home-brewed coffee.

Yes, a burr grinder is a must and has upped the quality for us.

We also buy freshly roasted beans and they too definitely make a difference.

We've done home taste tests using our French press and a cup from our coffee-maker du jour and results have varied but nothing has blown us away.

We love coffee and are willing to invest. I've read the threads on k-cups, French press coffee makers and drip machines but I didn't see a recent thread looking for the absolute best home brew.

We're willing to invest if need be. What machine or device(s) will get us to coffee nirvana at home?

FWIW over the years we've had coffee makers made by:

Krups
Cuisinart
Breville
Braun
Bunn
DeLonghi
and Proctor Silex

Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts and experiences.
