Bella Pro Series 14-Cup Touchscreen Coffee Maker - Black Stainless Steel
This coffee maker has a sleep design and looking but mainly attractive for it's touch screen functionality. However, the touch function seems odd and needs more work and improvement. Other than that, it is a good coffee maker and encompasses brewing program and alarm sound that provides notification when the brewing process is done and also ability to disable the aforementioned feature as a personal preference.
I bought this product to replace my old coffeemaker. I did a lot of research & settled on this one because it was digital. My only qualm about it is that you have to program it. I would have preferred one that one that you turn in and manually brew coffee. I still am satisfied with it though.
This coffee maker is fast and works well in all regards except the front keypad. Half the time the keys don’t respond to my touch and half the time they do whatever they’re using there’s a keypad on this coffee pot is garbage. I’m sure there are other coffee pots out there that will work as well as this but have a functional keypad on them. If I could do it again I wouldn’t buy this product.
Haven't even used it yet but it says in specs that it is supposed to be 10.7" high. Item Arrived today, opened box & it is 14.5" high.
I need a low profile coffee maker so heat doesn't damage my cabinet like my old one did. Since this is only 1" shorter than my existing coffee maker that won't really help.
The Bella Pro Series 14 cup touchscreen coffee maker is nice to look at and makes good coffee. In the box you get the coffee maker, 14 cup glass carafe, permanent coffee filter, coffee measuring spoon and the instruction manual.
Following the instructions, there are two things to do before you brew your first cup of coffee. I washed the permanent coffee filter, filter basket and carafe in warm soapy water. The second step is to run at least two 14 cups (full carafe) of water in through the coffee maker to remove any residue from manufacturing. Setting up the time and program brew was pretty straight forward. I did find the touchscreen a little nonresponsive and needed to press some buttons more than needed.
I was now ready to make some coffee!
The 14 cups are 5 ounce cups. So if you are making coffee for your 16 ounce travel mug, you would be making about 3 cups of coffee. I tried various settings. There is four strength settings: 1) regular; 2) gourmet (extracts more solubles for a flavorful pot of coffee), bold (allows more time for the water to steep) and 4) 1-4 cup setting. I mostly use the 1-4 cup or bold setting. I prefer my coffee strong. I especially like the markings on the carafe. The marking on the left is the water level and the right is how much coffee will be brewed. So to make 10 cups of coffee, you fill the water to the 10 mark on the left. I found this to be accurate and is a welcome feature.
The coffee tasted very good. Please be aware that how finely ground your coffee is will determine if you have any sediment in your carafe after a brew. I had some finely ground coffee and there was a fair amount of sediment left in the carafe. Using a drip type grind is larger and this had no sediment left in the carafe at all. . This is pretty common when using a permanent filter. I personally love these permanent filters and do not use the paper ones. I measured the temperature after a brew and it was 164 degrees F.
Here are some other features for the Bello Pro Series coffee maker:
- Set your program auto start by holding the program button for 3 seconds. Set the hour and minute to match when the brewing should start.
- There is an adjustable keep warm mode. This is adjusted by pressing the KEEP WARM button. The default is 2:00 hours. This can be set between 0 minutes and 4 hours.
- The display will show the TIME SINCE BREW after the coffee has finished brewing. I like this feature as it lets you know how long the coffee has been sitting in the carafe.
- The indicator beep sound can be adjusted on or off. You hold the program and minute button at the same time to adjust this setting. I personally do not need the beeping turned on.
In conclusion, I found the coffee to be well prepared using the Bella Pro Series touchscreen coffee maker. I really like the inclusion of the permanent coffee filter as I did not need to buy one. Adjusting the amount of time to keep the coffee warm is a new feature. The touchscreen works but was not always responsive to the touch. For this reason I cannot provide 5 stars and rank it at 4 stars. I do recommend it as it does make good coffee.
The coffee pot works well and has some nice features. However, the handle broke after using it for 7 months. So far, the manufacturer hasn’t honored their “2 year” warranty (I’ve followed all of their provided processes).

Hot and fresh, great tasting and strong.
The bold flavor of a morning cup of coffee is the only way I can start my day. The Bella Pro Series match the look of my other Bella Pro appliances and kitchen in general. The fact it makes a great cup of coffee is an added plus. OKAY, I would love it even if it wasn't good looking, based on the taste alone.
It has a gold fine mesh reusable permanent filter. You can use paper if desired. Here I say the obvious, READ THE MANUAL FIRST. It did a great job explaining how to set the time, brew strength, warming hold setting rather than the default 2-hour, cleaning procedure every 40 or so brew cycles, turn the beep on or off, I KNOW I MIGHT BE MISSING SOMETHING. oh, THE BREW STRENGTH. The most important to me. It lets the coffee steep a little longer as its being made for a bolder taste. And take this advice : use fresh ground if you can..
Setting the time is easy. So is the delay start time. It even shows the time lapsed since it finished brewing.
The back lit display is a wonder for sore eyes. I doesn't require me to find my reading glasses to set up. Big plus!
Taste, that's the biggest plus.
A:AnswerLet me say right up front--I don't have an answer to your question; we can't get the light on our coffee maker to stop flashing either. I just wanted to thank you for the early morning laugh (which I can't believe you managed to make happen, given my level of annoyance with this brand). This is the second Bella coffee maker we've tried in a week. The "keep warm" feature didn't work on the first one.
