Over the years we have tried every imaginable coffee maker that has come on the market. For our money, Farberware still makes the very best coffee making equipment. So much for all the electric drip coffee makers, it is never hot enough and what good is a tepid cup of coffee. All these one mug, very expensive machines are is yet another twist at making coffee, only in a much more costly way. First the machine is outrageously priced, then the coffee pods are ridiculously higher than plain ground coffee, it is just another fad. The line of electric coffee makers Farberware makes are superb. They have been around for many years now and still cannot be beat. We use one of ours at least twice a day and they consistently deliver a great brew that is good and hot. Enough with the games = let's get on to simple good coffee.
