Coffee makers with timers are pieces of shit. If it must have a timer, go buy the cheapest one at walmart as regardless of make you'll be replacing it in 2-3 years.
My morning goes like this:
- turn on coffee pot.
- drink coffee.
I'm on my second Mr. Coffee, complete with timer, in about 20 years. The only reason I replaced the original was that I broke the carafe, and it didn't make sense to try to replace just that.
To the OP: there's a thread here that basically said if you aren't spending hundreds (or thousands, can't remember), you are a Neanderthal and might as well be drinking Folger's freeze-dried coffee. Pretty much the same group of people who were discussing their nine different watches, each costing five figures, none of which keeps time as well as your Timex Ironman.
