Need advice from coffee drinkers

It's time to replace my coffee-maker and I'd love to hear your advice on what to buy. I've seen the one-cup makers in the store ads, but I've never had only one cup at a sitting. I'd appreciate hearing about your favorite brands before I go shopping.
Thanks!

I loooove my Mr. Coffee! I got it at Walmart and it's black and silver, so it looks sharp in my kitchen, too. It has the timer, so I set it up the night before - I love having it ready when I wake up! The burner is wonderful - it keeps it at the right temperature.

This looks like mine except it has the regular pot and not the thermal one:

Nothing fancy but my coffee is always ready when I get up in the morning. With their added coupons, I think we have found the best prices in Bed Bath and Beyond or Kohls.

Is what I have at home and I love it.

I like that there is no glass pot, and the coffee will stay hot and fresh longer. Also love the push button service.

I have a french press also for when I have time to sit and enjoy. And a pod, single cup brewer at school.

I love my Cuisenart Grind and Brew coffee maker. There's nothing like fresh ground coffee in the morning! I set it at night and I'm good to go in the morning!!

BUNN!-----I LOVE coffee and wouldn't have any other kind. Makes a great pot in 3 minutes. Sometimes I make myself 1/2 pot if I'm alone. I have a French press and it's good, but the coffee cools too quickly for me.

I always got the cheap o Mr. Coffee type pots, but when the last one died I found a cuisenart for a good price at Kohl's. What a difference! It makes the coffee hot and quickly and the stainless carafe keeps it warm a long time. I'll never go back to the cheap-o pots.

Keurig! It may be a little more pricey but its quick makes one cup at a time and many flavors to choose from. You can even brew tea. Love it! Google it.
