Picking up on a recent coffee maker discussion, my partner really wants a coffee maker. (I don't drink coffee). He's ruined several french presses and a few of those italian bubble up dealie bobbies because he is unable to clean them with any regularity and wants a coffee maker that doesn't require stringent cleaning procedures. He likes very strong rich coffee though.
Ironmom, which Melitta model do you recommend? Any other reqs for non french press or stovetop coffee makers?
