      I actually brew with manual drip. I have an electric kettle with a programmable temperature. I keep thinking about buying a drip machine and keep talking myself out of it.

      Oops, I just saw this message from October. There are a few that reach the required temperature and get an endorsement from the Specialty Coffee Association of America.

      The one that's been around the longest is the $300 Technivorm. It's a nice brewer. I bought one for my girlfriend and we use it on weekends. (She uses a stovetop espresso maker during the week.) The downside is it's not totally fire and forget if you use fresh coffee. Because of the bloom, the coffee expands enough to overflow. I find I have to stop the brew twice during the process and let it drain some. The upside is the brewing happens in a sort of open arrangement making it easier to watch, and stir the grounds if you are really picky like me.

      Bunn just came out with something in the last year or two that is much less expensive, the Phase Brew. Also, Behmor, Joe Behm's company that also makes a roaster just came out with a drip machine that gets hot enough.

      I need a decent drip coffee maker that gets the water up to the right temp before brewing. Can you help me out with that?
