It's an understatement to say that I love coffee.
I use my 4-cup press pot each week day while my husband is at work, but on the weekends we use our 8-cup drip machine for both of us. Our 8-cup pot is a hand-me down from my in-laws - we took it because we prefer thermos pots to machines with a burner, which I think burn the coffee while trying to keep it warm.
Coffee flavor is a big deal to me, so over time I came to realize the importance of cleaning out the whole machine - not just the pot and filter basket.
