Depends on your daily consumption. If 8 cups will do it for you, then probably a good choice. Otherwise, you may be making 2 pots each morning.

Note, when I was looking at them, there were some reviewers saying they drip when they pour no matter what they tried and that the carafe was hard to clean out - no personal experience here.
What did you go with?

8 cup is ample for my wife and I and I've had no problem with dripping when pouring. As for cleaning I just toss a dishwasher tablet in carafe add hot water and let sit for a couple hours and it's sparkling clean.

So I think the final order will be the 8 cup drip and a Cuisinart burr grinder. Should be more than ample to step up the coffee game.

when you're up north mocha joes has the best cold brew I've had. I'll have to check this out. Thanks for sharing. Never tried cold brewing my own.

I've got this cold brew system as well. It takes a whole lot of ground coffee to get a good concentrate but usually lasts a while. I haven't used it in a while because I was going thru beans very quickly and it can be somewhat messy and time consuming but does make a great cold brew coffee.

For coffee, I have been drinking Camano Island Coffee Roasters for several years and love it. Pick your region, roast, pounds, and they roast and ship based on when you want it. I always get my whole beans within 2 days of roasting so it's really fresh and I've never been dissatisfied with the quality or roast. If anyone is interested let me know and I can send a link that gets you a discount on your first order (and I get a discount too -win/win ). ;)

+1 for Camano Island Coffee Co! I get their specialty Logger Brew (basically the Brazilian dark roast) that they make for Cascade Lumber, each within about 5 mins of the house.

Their coffee of the month club is the gift I give out to friends & family the most...I think we did another 4 or 5 this memberships this Christmas. First year is on my then you're on your own!

(CICO is the "unofficial" fav coffee now of quite a few FOX newsers).

camano island coffee is good stuff but I prefer Mukilteo coffee. I'll have to check out the logger brew next time I'm on the island or have a bro pick me up some

I do cold brew from time to time. Just pour filtered water in a ball jar with grounds and let sit overnight and then pour through a coffee filter. I have also just done it in a french press, which is easier.

Whenever I add coffee to a batch of the beer I make (Porters/Stouts) I go cold brew. Because hot water never touches the beans, it doesn't pull out the tannins and such that aren't good for beer or the head. Also this contributes to a less bitter coffee.

My craigslist espresso machine and burr grinder. I have a bottomless filter so it does a decent pull of espresso.

SCG has flash sales of reconditioned machines from time to time that are some amazing values. FYI :shrug:

We bought the 10-cop Technavorm and I wish it was 12. That's my only complaint with it.

It is. I just drill a few holes in the selector so I can get a finer grind.

I have never tried this. It sounds very interesting. I love cold brew tea often.

Late, my setup. A little more than a year old on both the grinder and maker. I have a Chemex for when I want to get fancy, but this gets the job done. Programmable, makes hot water at the same time, etc. I easily make coffee for me and the wife, and have hot water for hot chocolate/tea for the kids.

I think I'm going to get this one because it grinds it as well, and everything will be done for me when I get up:

The Moccamaster, Bonavita, and this were all compared on SCG'S YouTube. Worth a look.

Yep, they're all good but what sways me is the auto start feature and the internal grinder - I want one step no fuss like my Magnifica, but for drip coffee. Sold.
