From Wirecutter's best drip coffee maker article:
The Braun 10-Cup MultiServe Coffee Machine is the worst coffee maker we’ve tested. The coffee it brewed tasted consistently awful—like burnt gas-station coffee. Like the Ninja and other models we tested, this machine has a lot of settings and features to tinker with, such as single-cup and over-ice settings. But the bad coffee it made overshadowed anything else.
Take that as you will.

If the Braun is SCA certified, I'd discount the Wirecutter review. SCA certified drip coffee makers make very good drip coffee. The SCA certified part just means that they tested the model and the water temperature, wetting and brew times are all in a superior range. If you have those bases covered it's hard to screw up your cup of coffee.

I have not used this model so it may have goofy controls or be hard to use. Maybe. But I'd bet it makes decent tasting coffee. Looking at a photo of this model it appears to be a derivative of the well-regarded German Technivorm brewer design.

+1 on the SCA certification. I almost wonder if they simply messed up making the coffee by selecting some weird feature and inadvertently did it themselves by having the coffee brew at the wrong temp or for to long. Also possible their machine was simply a lemon and not performing correctly.

At least you can buy with some ease since its from costco though.

Fantastic model, have owned for 10 months now and very happy with it. We brew 50oz daily and use the Gold process as well as the Gold Filter included with the machine as well, paper filters also work fine.

No other SCA certified machines offers as many brewing size options and this was one of the big reasons we chose this machine. Half the time we used the Carafe which will keep your coffee at temperature for up to 60 minutes and the other times we used the drip to mug setting with the handy folding ledge.

Cleans up easily as well and no problems at all, at this price this is a no brainer, hands down best coffee maker you can buy. Let me know if any questions.

Can you do custom brew sizes with it? It only has a full or half carafe setting, if I need for example 3/4 of a carafe, do I only fill in the water 3/4 of the way up and adjust the amount of coffee grounds accordingly? Would that work?

You'd really only use the Carafe for 25oz or 50oz, a mug or tumbler for the other options, there is no 3/4 carafe option. That said, you could brew with the carafe and then use one of the mug settings for additional coffee. My spouse brews 25oz in the morning and takes half in a tumbler to work. I'll then brew with another mug size in the morning and after lunch.

The mug setting is fantastic as so easy to make one hot cup of coffee and it's hot, no complaints.

That's what I would have to resort to it seems but I wanted to try to avoid having to do that. Putting the full carafe settings but only filling the water tank to 3/4 (half is too little, a full one is a waste of coffee) I assume the brewing stops when the tank is out of water?

My recommendation for a drip coffee brewer:
https://www.amazon.ca/Breville-BDC450BS ... B073TZR6P1

Not sure how low the price goes but I'd definitely spend a bit more as you won't be disappointed. A friend of mine had his Breville break and it was out of warranty, they sent him a new machine. So definitely another positive for Breville.

Now I am looking for burr grind. Which one that is good and reliable without breaking the bank?

Delonghi KG521 conical Burr grinder is on sale at the Bay for $187.49 (reg $250). Is this good choice?

Any other better value choice?

Check out some of the stuff from Bodum if you're on a budget - also a great value.

This thing is absolutely massive. Not sure why they have to build it so big. Maybe it's the same designer as the PS5.

This is quite tempting, as I drink 3-4 cups of coffee a day.

Has anyone seen it in Mississauga or Burlington?

Not sure, we always keep water topped up and machines does the rest.
