My 18 year old old-school Braun is finally giving up the ghost. I've put off buying a new one for a couple of years now, choosing instead to put up with the not-white-anymore casing and the broken drip interrupter. But now that the plastic exterior has started to turn to powder, it's time for a new one.
I'd be more than happy to replace it with the same make and model, but thanks to all things being new and improved, that's not an option. I'm looking for something quite basic; I don't like multiple machines in one. I have a grinder, and it works fine, thanks very much. A timer, well perhaps, but I kinda like the freshness just filtered water, and newly ground beans. Was considering the Cuisinart, but I'm not crazy about the small pouring area for the water resevoir, and, I'm such a klutz in the morning, I'll just spill water all over the coffee grounds.
