We have a Cuisinart. Not the brewstation, but the the one with no pot that dispenses directly into your cup. Have had this for YEARS. Started with the Hamilton B variety, which we didn't care for.. so we upgraded. The coffee tastes better.. someone told me that for it to really taste right you have to buy a higher end coffee maker so that the water gets hot enough to brew properly. After almost (but not quite) 2 years... it developed a drip from the dispenser... so I contacted Cuisinart. They sent me a brand new replacement (not a part.. the whole thing).. for $10 shipping. It's been functioning perfectly for us for going on 4 years now. We LOVE it. During the interim, waiting for the new one to arrive (about a week) we used the old HamiltonB and it just wasn't the same.
Hope this helps!

We've had a Bunn for the last several years at home and the office. We just love it. It's quick and reliable.

I bought 3 coffee-makers before I ended up with Cuisinart. I love it! Not the brewstation, just the 12 cup, self-cleaning automatic brew. On cold days I make a pot in the morning and the evening - never lets me down.

I have a Cuisinart Grind and Brew - LOVE it! I love to use whole bean coffee, but you don't have to.

I also have a Keurig for times when I just want to make a cup!

If you are talking just good regular coffee and you are making more than one pot a day, then Bunn is one of the very best. It keeps the water hot, so a pot will brew in around three minutes.

If you are looking for a regular style, Cuisanart is tough to beat. I like the cone shape filter, as I think you can use just a touch less coffee and the water travels further through the coffee.

Beyond that, I don't think there is a ton of difference.

We have the Cuisinart brewstation. We've had it for a couple of years and the grinder part broke, so that was disappointing. One thing about the brewstation I didn't like was that steam gets into the grinder part so you can't just brush out the leftover grinds; you have to take out all the pieces every time, wash them and let them dry before the next time you use it.

Now we use a separate grinder and continue to use the coffeemaker. I really like the coffeemaker, mostly because it has a thermal pot so it keeps the coffee hot for HOURS without using any heat source. When we eventually replace the coffeemaker, I think we'll skip the brew station and just go to the regular Cuisinart coffeemaker.

Hope that helps! Now, off to brew a pot! :D

I had Mr. Coffee years back but the best coffee maker for me is the Cuisinart DCC-1000 Programmable Filter Brew 12-cup Coffee Maker in which I bought on http://allbestcoffeemakers.com. By this coffee maker, I can set the time when will be coffee be brewed and when it will shut off. And yeah, Cuisinart is one of the best!
