I am wanting to start brewing "good" coffee. I have $100 to start with. I have an old (3 yr) B&D that has not been cleaned enough. I am not looking for over the top results as my budget shows but I want a good cup of coffee. So far I ahve looked at the Braun brewer that is highly ranked on Amazon and Consumer Reports. I would like to get a grinder and grind my own beans. I also would like to get into roasting down the road. I am also needing for the brew process to be somewhat quick. A French press would be nice when time permits but with two small children one less then 2 months time is not something I have. Thanks for any help.

I'm a big fan of a simple cone with paper filter.

SWMBO recently bought a Chemex, which is basically a decanter shaped in such a way that you put the filter on top, needing no additional parts.

Ignore the beginning boil gravity - the gravity you want is the post boil gravity - you would need to adjust for what your boil-off rate is... again, only you would know that.
