I'm trying to figure out the practicality of one of these machines for someone like me.
I typically make 9 cups in my Cuisinart every morning. I usually have a cup left over that I sometimes nuke in the afternoon, but more likely nuke first thing the next the morning.
I buy my coffee on sale, Folgers or Maxwell House.
Nine cups at 0.58/c comes out roughly to one of the Folgers canisters every 1-3/4 days. And they certainly last me longer than that. A couple weeks anyway. I never really pay attention.
However... to tell the truth, coffee in the morning just isn't "doing it" for me anymore. The taste is blah and the caffeine... if the caffeine perks me up, I sure can't tell. Basically I just drink something warm every morning out of habit. And sometimes I'll skip a morning. It's not like I'm addicted to that morning cup O Joe.
I could get something high octane, but to tell the truth I'd probably still be making 8-9 cups. And that could get expensive. I'm sure I would enjoy them more though.
I take it these machines are for people who are really into their coffee and not just someone looking for a better tasting cup with a bit more caffeine?
