Yeah I don't even have the pause. That's the top of the list and probably the easiest. I think they all do that these days.
I could easily give up programmable, although it's nice to think some days it might get me up earlier, knowing coffee was brewing!
Thermal carafe is an extra, but would be nice.
I do prefer the cone paper filters, and have them already.
You know, it broke once in Florida, so over 15 years ago. DH offered to take a look at it. Took it apart, studied it, said he had no idea, put it back together, and it's still going. Well it is, except for the draining part. lol
