    My second Black and Decker coffee maker died this morning, didn't even make it a year. One before that, B&D died, in about a year. I drink a pot a day so its not like I use the thing all day, but I am getting tired of replacing these things. Anybody got any suggestions on a coffee maker? I bought my last B&D. Thanks.

    Try the Gevalia brand. You get one free when you buy two half lbs. of their coffee and you can cancel after that. I've got one and it works well. If you really don't mind spending the money, get the Bunn brand. It is the best that I know. Hope this helps!

    Brunette, long tresses, about 5’ 10”, nice smile, blue eyes. Decent figure. Plays all requests.

    I have a Mr Coffee that I've had for at least 10 years and it still works fine. Has time display and timer setting to have coffee made when you get up. The other option is the cheap $10 Wal Mart variety, when they die get another.

    I use a "cold brew" system that makes a FABULOUS cup of smooooooooth coffee. If you're so inclined, look up "Toddy Coffee Maker" online and read about them. It's a different approach (you make a coffee concentrate) but if you're all about flavor and no stomach issues from the acids, this is excellent.

    I liked the Bunn but eventual went back to my battered 7 cup aluminum Mirro drip pot. Absolutly the best for dripping Community Coffee.

    I mostly use a Mr. Coffee, the Bunn is really a good one, and fast too, my brother uses one. Sometimes though I just like to use the old drip pot that I use for camping. It absolutely makes the best coffe. If you would like to try some of our Community Coffee, let us know, we'll send you a pack. Just follow the instructions on the package. Makes the best Coffee you ever had, provided you like it strong.

    Switch to tea, and never need a coffee maker again! :)

    However, those little 'acorn' tea-leaf holders are a hassle, LOL!
