    I don't think I want much!

    I would like to have a coffee maker, but not just any coffee maker.

    I want one that will make single cup with selections from 4-16 oz in 2 oz increments or 24 oz half pot/42 oz full pot. I would want it to have an adjustable temperature range from 190-205 in 5 set points. I would want it to use ground coffee, not pods.

    Am I asking too much or is there one on the market? I guess I am looking for a combination of a Kuerig, Bunn, and Ninja.

    The most financially beneficial choice might be one of each.
    arrange them like some do with multiple computers.
    Astonish your friends.
    Or cheaper yet, drink beer.

    I have one of each, I like the coffee best from the Bunn but can't do single cup. The Kuerig gives many choices (with a hack to get past the programming) but you have to use their cup, the Ninja makes single or half/full pots with regular coffee but you don't have all the settings.

    I do drink beer but it has the opposite affect of making me sleepy instead of waking me up.

    Keurig has an adapter for regular coffee. It works really well.

    I have one. The new brewers need a magnetic code to work so you have to do a hack which works but can be a PITA. I have not gotten as good of coffee doing this as I get with the Ninja especially with the larger sizes but with the Ninja I am limited in size for single cup to either 12 or 16.

    I am always looking for the optimum in coffee flavor and like the idea of changing coffees and getting the most from each one which is why I would like all the control I mentioned in the OP.

    I had a Vue that the pump went back while under warranty. They were phasing them out and did not have one to replace it so they upgraded it to a K-2.0 that needs the code to know what to brew. There are 6 different brew types but there is no reference to what they do. I think I know what some of them are used for but not all. Anyway with a top from a cup with the magnetic printing on it and a magnet you can pull up all choices but the adapter limits you to how much coffee you can put in it so you are limited to how much and/or how strong you can make it.

    Aren't you glad you don't have such a hard life.

    Isn't that a small cup of really strong coffee?

    Normally I am making a 16 oz cup to take with me to help keep warm.

    If you were a real tech, you'd solder a relay on that board and call it good to go.

    They are doing amazing things with instant coffee these days. I know this because it's what I've been reduced to for want of counter space and a wife who insists on a latte maker. I didn't want a bunch of machines covering the new granite, so I laid down the law - one hot beverage machine on the counter, period.

    And that's what we got.
    Is the Religious Right to blame for Christianity's decline?

    They argued that, as the Religious Right became increasingly visible and militant, it became associated with Christianity itself. And if being a Christian meant being associated with the likes of Jerry Falwell, many people—especially political moderates and liberals—decided to simply stop identifying as Christians altogether.

    I have thought about that. Don't know how well it would work at the office, but it has been considered.
