If you're buying expensive coffee and really enjoy the taste of good coffee, I'd suggest either making pour-over coffee or french press coffee at home. There are even very good automatic pour over coffee makers. The relatively new Oxo automatic pour-over has unseated the Bonavita in many minds: [link]
From the listed features:
Microprocessor-controlled brew cycle replicates the pour-over method to produce 2-9 cups of SCAA-certified perfect coffee
Water is heated and held at the perfect temperature for coffee (197.6-204.8 Degrees F)
Rainmaker shower head evenly disperses water over coffee grounds for uniform saturation and full flavor extraction
Intuitive LED interface features a backlit screen that displays the Coffee Maker status and freshness indicator
A single dial allows you to program the number of cups and the 24-hour start timer
It even first soaks the grounds, waits, and then pours the water over them. Pair this with a grinder and some good recently-roasted beans and the coffee you make at home will taste even better than what you'd buy at the coffee place and cost a fraction of what they charge.
Personally, I'm generally fine with an older Cuisinart single-cup brewer with one of the better store-bought grounds (Chock Full o Nuts or similar).
I don't really drink it for leisure or to slowly enjoy the taste. I do want a great tasting coffee but I also don't want to NOT like my coffee some day because I'm trying a bunch of types. I'm not big on surprises.
I just want to have good coffee and not worry. There's many more things to worry about.
