coffee quandary

I've had yet another dumb Cuisinart coffeemaker bite the dust, and I'm shopping around for a new way to make coffee. I'm not excited about the auto drip. Other drip coffeemakers don't heat the water enough and the coffee's not worth drinking. I grind the coffee right before brewing, so I don't need overnight programmable coffee or anything like that. I tried using my SO's espresso machine today, but I like light roast coffees and that comes out of the espresso maker tasting exceedingly bitter, so I think that's possibly not the way to go.

I"m using a French press right now...it's glass and I'm just waiting to see how long before I break it, since I'm really good at breaking glass things. I've always wanted a cool siphon coffeepot, but see above about breaking things. I have a 1-cup pourover thing, but usually I'm making coffee for me and my son, so I want something that makes at least 16 oz at a time.

How do you make your coffee?
