It looks great, but it won’t wow you with some of the LCD displays and blue lights other machines will, but it will brew you a great cup of coffee. It runs in the $150 range.


Cuisinart DCC-2600 Brew Central 14-Cup Programmable Coffeemaker with Glass Carafe

Cuisinart is another company with a great reputation in the coffee making world. The Brew central 14-cup Programmable with a glass carafe does a great job of keeping that reputation in tact.

It also features what could be the best coffee maker option ever made: the bold or regular flavor strength options. We all know that some of us like our coffee thick as mud, while others are more of the mild drinkers. You can set it for as low as one to four cups, so you could get two cups of regular strength, and then set it for two cups of bold. Great for a husband and wife team who have different coffee preferences. It also has an adjustable heater plate, and a zero to four hour automatic shut off. You can get all of this for around $90.
