Thanks. I've decided on the burr grinder and the 8 cup brewer recommended above. $300 investment and I'll put away the cuisinart 12 cupper. The keurig is still nice when you just need a cup of something in 2 minutes. But it's not up to the task of making 32oz+ coffee a day.
Just reading the forum has pushed me past the k-cup and now I'm grinding (whirly blade) beans from whole foods and brewing a pot every morning. A nice step up, but I can't wait to get some fresh beans and for Santa to bring the burr grinder.
Does anyone have a picture of how fine I should be grinding beans for drip? Depending on the time of the whirly blade I have have anything from fine chips to dust.
