Coffee is known to be one of the best beverages of the world. There are many several varieties of coffee maker, all them serving the same purpose – to mix hot water with ground coffee, and then filter out the grinds.However,what type of coffee maker you want, will totally depend on how many of you there are in your home drinking coffee, and how often.
As a general rule, the more you are in search of convenience, the more expensive your choice of coffee maker will be. As for the quality of the brew itself, the added cost won’t make much difference.You can make a great cup of coffee with some of the simplest coffee makers – like a French press or $10 manual drip coffee cone.Among thermal coffee makers, the Capresso MT500 Coffee Maker gets a really good vote. It features a 10-cup capacity, stainless-steel lined water reservoir (so the water isn't in contact with aluminum) and pre-programming abilities. Experts prefer thermal carafes overall, because glass carafes heated by a warming plate tend to produce acidity, which results in bitter-tasting coffee.

Best 2 cups (12 oz) coffee I've had is from a siphon brewer: the Hario Nouveau NCA-3. It says 3 cups but for me, I get 2 (6oz) cups.
Comes with a steel filter that holds paper or cloth. Clean and quick. Even with the spirit burner, I get great coffee after about 6-7 minutes. The only downside is it's very expensive. You could try the less expensive Yama TCA-3 type.
Pretty much an excellent couple of cups every time!
