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.

I usually aim somewhere between Kosher salt and coarse ground pepper for drip coffee. I don't have a picture right now, I'll see what I can do about taking one.

Keep in mind it'll be something you play with a bit depending on how the coffee comes out, every persons tastes are unique, so play around a bit.
