I think I've actively hated every coffee maker I've ever owned. They get clogged, brew slowly, and confuse houseguests. I don't need tons of fancy clocks, alarms, "keep warm" settings. I just want reliably good, fast, coffee that I can still manage to make when I'm barely awake.
I finally found all these things with the Bonavita. One button: on/off. Two movable parts: basket & carafe. The coffee brews quickly and stays hot in the carafe for a decent amount of time. This is a fool-proof coffee maker for people who care about good coffee but not a bit about bells and whistles.
