I have only had one really nice coffee maker and it started to leak water so it got tossed, (by my husband). My latest coffee maker was a hand-me-down and it worked. So I would set it up to brew my coffee every morning. Then one morning I went in and it didn't brew my coffee! Oh no! I checked to make sure I put water in it, because I've done that before. Yep, it had water. After a few minutes & finally coming face to face with my denial...I declared my beloved coffee maker dead. :(

|Yep, old school percolator!|
I've been doing this for almost a month now and I have learned that I cannot rush the process. If I want really good coffee I have to allow it to do it's thing on med/high heat for about 20-30 minutes! For me that is a long time to wait on coffee. I would much rather have it ready for me when I wake up, but right now that is not a possiblity. At the moment this coffee addict is just happy to have coffee in the morning.
