are there any coffee brewers that already meet up all these expectations? I just keep on finding that in a way or another they lack some characteristic, and in other cases its more the outside look that makes the coffee brewer more expensive even if the taste is not exactly the best. I mean its just marketing to a point, but I am starting to feel that the best way to make coffee is actually taking your time and doing it old school like pourover. The problem then is time, or even amount. How many cups of coffee would be expected of a good brewer?

Bought my daughter and s-i-l a Bonavita for Christmas the year they came out. They love it. Big advantage over the Technivorm is how much space it takes up. Now, not all of us need worry about it, but they have to and were very pleased with the profile. He called Bonivata customer service and talked to them when it arrived. He's one of those people who really likes to understand his appliances. He was pleased with how they communicated with them, how they answered his questions, etc.
They had wanted a multi-cup brewer for when they had guests. And have been incredibly pleased with it. He does pourover for himself or just one other, or occasionally his press mug if in a hurry to leave the house.
I recommend it. She likes it too, saying it is not too complex to use for someone who doesn't use it all the time. But it makes very good coffee.
