Bonavita and Mochamaster. Old school pot of coffee but damn good. They both get the water temp correct
I think we always had auto shut off too. Lately we've been splurging on them, my wife decided she likes red. I still like the way Mr. Coffee basket loads and fills, very simple and I'm used to it.I had that exact model, but I got rid of it after just a couple of months because it didn't have an auto-shut-off. My aunt caught her kitchen on fire when I was a kid by leaving the coffee pot on and leaving for work. I just couldn't deal with wondering if it was left on or not. I ended up donating it to Hospice Thrift Store and getting the upgraded one ($24) with the timer that we never use, but it has the auto-off.
Every time I see one of those it brings me back to Parker mornings with my pops cooking chorizo and eggs and brewing a pot on the Coleman stove.View attachment 1196853
My mom made the very best coffee in one of theses. My sisters & I each have one but have never been able to make it taste the same.
I have a Keurig now. It’s ok.
I'm not a big coffee person. I drink it out of necessity, and now it's either become habit, or addiction? .
my wife uses one of the nespresso deals, watching her make her coffee is a process. frothed milk ice and what ever else she puts in there. i dont have the patience for it or care for the taste. i hate cold coffee and coffee should taste like coffee not some brown sugar water shake thing.My nephew got us a Nespresso for Christmas so I took it to my shop since it's not my thing. They drink the shit out of them there. For me though, I just set my Mr Coffee to auto start at 5:00 am, fill up my green thermos & I'm good to go, same as my dad did when I was growing up. Nothing better!
same here, setting my coffee maker to start at 5am and filling it up is the last thing i do before i head upstairs for the night. first thing i do when i come downstairs in the morning is double check that it is brewing while i drink some water.It’s the morning ritual.
I need to go thru the motions or my mornings just don’t feel right.
Yes I have OCD, patterns and routines run my life LOL
I like the fact that with a french press you're boiling the water and brewing the coffee at a high temp, Starbucks claims this it a big deal. That's why Percolators are great too. Keurig's have their place for convenience but the water just need to be hotter. Starbucks also claims that you should throw out the used grounds immediately to avoid bitterness.

Interesting and I did read all the following links.Black rifle is more liberal than Starbucks.
They just lie about it.
And about 40% more expensive, and less flavor.
At least Starbucks is open about their wokeness.
The only thing worse than that combination would be black rifle in a bunn.
