I am in the market for a new drip coffee maker and I am wondering is there really anything out there to meet my needs...

I like to make a single cup of coffee (16oz) that is decaf, my husband likes regular (also 16oz), so we end up making two brews of coffee each morning.

I am currently considering the Technivorm, but I wish I could sample a cup from it before I make the commitment. Any suggestions for how to replicate a cup, possibly at at retail location (ie starbucks?)

Finally should I consider another method of brewing as an alternative?

Thanks for your help,
DD

Do yourself a giant favor and buy a Bodum or French press - this, in my opinion, is the only way to get a superior single cup of joe -

Aeropress is good too if you have an extra few minutes - but it requires espresso-grind coffee.

The Technivorm or Newco are great for 20 to 40 fluid ounce batches but not for single cups.

Thanks Colin,
any tips on what I should look for in a French Press? Are they pretty much created the same?

Yes - Bodum makes them. Melior makes a more robust press with glass by Corning - I have one.
Where as a Bodum French press will set you back 25 to 40 bucks, the Meliors are in excess of $50.

Are they better? Do not know - all I know is, my Melior has been in regular service since the early to mid-eighties.
