I stumbled upon a coffee maker about 4 years ago and love it.
Coffee Makers - Coffee Maker, Optimal Brew
It will make anywhere from 2 cups to 10 cups by their measurements. Actual would be their 2 cups = 10 oz.
I make a full pot and use 3 scoops of coffee and my scoop is 1/8 cup.
The reason I love this one is 4 fold.
The water reservoir is on the left side and lifts out without having to move the entire machine around.
The grounds holder is on the right and slides out without having to move the machine around.
The coffee goes directly into a thermal pot so it will not continue to cook and turn "muddy".
It has a built in "clean me" alarm that gives you 2 full pots warning that it is time to clean the machine.
It also has the timer some of you are looking for.
Oh .. and the grounds holder also has a place for a filter that filters out bad water flavors and etc for any who use tap water.
It's fast, makes consistently good hot coffee, super simple to use and really doesn't take up much space at all.
When this one dies - which they all do - I will replace with another of the same model .. it's the best one I've ever had.
