Coffee maker shopping, suggestions?

lisaf | Jan 29, 2008 08:25 PM

My 7 year old Capresso coffee maker broke last night and we are shopping for a new machine. Things I loved about it that I would like to find in a new one:

1. Thermal carafe, not glass
2. Auto-timer so I can preset the night before
3. Stop and pour, so you can sneak a cup before it's done brewing
4. permanent gold filter
5. removable water reservoir

I checked online and went to Williams Sonoma and Crate and Barrel to see what is out there. Leaning towards this10 cup Cuisinart which has all but #5.

No need for the built in coffee grinder, as I already have a great burr grinder and don't believe in combination appliances.

What do you have that you think I should consider? Just looking for fabulous drip coffee, not espresso. My budget is $125. Thanks for any suggestions.
