I'm thinking about purchasing this coffee maker but I only brew 2 cups per
day. It says 10 cups, by some euro standard. How many American 8 oz cups
is that?

Will it do a good job of brewing just 16 oz for me? That's all I really
want to know.

I can testify that it does a good job making 24 oz. at a time (two
good-sized mugfulls). That's what it produces when water is added to the
6-cup k on the reservoir. So apparently a cup by Technivorm standards
is about 4 oz. It has a control on the basket which lets the coffee flow
out of the basket fast, slowly, or not at all - for making 16 oz. you'd
probably get the best results at the intermediate setting.

125 ml (or 4.22 ounces) is a "tasse" (cup) in France and Italy; that
would be a little over five 8-oz cups - presuming that they are
following the French/Italian notion of a "cup". They very well may
not.

Yes. I've tasted my regular (freshly ground from fresh beans) coffee
brewed in a friend's Technivorm. It was very good, an impressive
machine. You'll like it if the expense doesn't freak you out. However,
I'd suggest the model with the vacuum carafe: coffee kept warm in a
pot turns to crap VERY quickly.

I either cool it down as soon as it's made, for iced coffee in the
summer, or drink it right away in the winter. :)
