I'm with Ouch on this one. Perc's break just about every "law" of good coffee making.
The reason that you find drip coffee so sub-par is because most drip coffee MAKERS are sub-par. Try a Technivorm and you won't go back. Mr. Coffee, Krups et. al. YUCK! They don't even get CLOSE to the proper temps.
That said - if you like it - go nuts!
