Q: My husband and I are pretty serious coffee drinkers, but we have yet to find a coffee maker that will last over a year and a half! We need to have one with a thermal carafe, and I prefer programmable machines. We need advice! What are your readers' favorite brands and models?

Editor: Readers, can you recommend any reliable, programmable drip coffee makers that use a thermal carafe?
