I have this one: http://www.amazon.com/Mr-Coffee-4-Cup-Programmable-Coffeemaker/dp/B0008JIW8U/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1323011716&sr=8-1

It’s got a timer or just a plain old on/off button.  It is just plastic, and not stainless and heavy duty or anything, so I dont know if you’d consider it cheaply made, but it works great for over 2 years now and does the job.  And I think it looks ok next to my nespresso, which was defintely not cheap.

Darn I was going to suggest a Bunn, we swear by them! Do you think maybe if you set it up for them they would be able to just refill it?

Are they against a Keurig?  It’s easy enough to put the K-cup in and press the size button.  Not sure they want the expense of K-cups though.  My parents buy coffee from Costco (e.g. a big bag of ground Dunkins) and put that in the K-cup reusable filter.  It’s cheaper that way.

We have a Mr. Coffee brand also. I only make enough for myself to have 1 cup a day, but it’s been working for over 3 years and has been thru 2 moves so good enough for me. And I think I got it on sale at Target for $20.00 or so. Can’t beat that really 🙂

@MapleMoose: We have Keurigs at work and I would love one but didn’t want the expense of the K-cups. I didn’t know you could get a reusable one you can fill yourself! Thanks!  And to the OP, I love my plain old Mr. Coffee too.

I have this one – it’s programmable but we rarely use it this way.  You can keep the left dial on ‘brew’ and then just flip the switch (just an up down lever in the middle) to turn it on.  It’s really easy and I bet your grandparents would be able to operate it!

Capresso.  They have steel carafes, so the plate doesn’t need to have a heating element in it.  I love mine.  A little pricey, but they last a long time.  It’s the same company that makes those extremely expensive espresso machines that are sold at Williams Sonoma.
