Subject: Space Challenged for New Coffee Maker
 

I need advice!  We live full-time in our RV.  As such, we are severely space challenged for everything.  I have a dedicated spot for my Gaggia Classic and a B&D Spacemaker coffee maker.  The spacemaker broke when it fell out while I was going down the road and I cannot find replacement parts for this OLD model.  Soooooo.  I need a new coffee maker (long winded intro to get to the point).

Anyway, here are the criteria for my new machine:
> Needs to be front accessible as it will be mounted in upper cabinets and I cannot reach above to fill water.
> Size available to mount:  12" deep, 14 1/2" wide, 11" tall.

The Spacemaker proves that we are not sophisticated coffee drinkers but I would not mind going to a higher level.
All help appreciated.  Let me know if you need more info.

Thanks in advance - Kevin  (www.chasinourdreams.blogspot.com)

Kevin,

I'm not sure what the space saver you had looks like, but B&D still make the space saver model. These are the ones that mount under a cabinet. On the other hand, maybe for your situation a different way of making coffee might be to your advantage. Try looking into pour over brewing. You would need a kettle, carafe, filter holder and filters. In your situation I would get a stainless thermal carafe which survives dropping a bit better than the glass. I switched to a setup like this for home use after becoming dissatisfied with my machine. The advantage I see is that you can store all of this in a minimal space when not in use.

 
.....No matter where you go, there you are...
