    Makes Excellent Coffee

    I really like this coffee maker. The coffee from it tastes great and never tastes burnt, no matter how long it's kept warm. (I did not purchase the optional filter). The removable basket to put water in is very easy to handle but I imagine it may be a bit difficult if you were going to try to fill it with a fridge water dispenser. It is quite tall - it won't fit in any of my cupboards although I have an old house and I guess that is to be expected. It is a good looking coffee maker (no yucky, crusty carafe) so it's ok on the counter.

    don't believe the hype

    so, I bought this 8 months ago due to the positive reviews and design that seemed alot like the coffee maker at work. While it works, here are the irks I have with the design. 1. There is a 2 inch long metal strip inside the coffee tank that is responsible for keeping the coffee heated. After a brew or two, coffee will adhere to the heated metal and will need some elbow grease to get it off. Surrounding the metal are these plastic spikes (for no apparent reason) - which makes cleaning the metal strip more difficult than it needs to be. 2. The coffee tub itself is not insulated - its just plastic. Not even glass lining like the coffee maker at work or the glass pots like others. Deal breaker. 3. The height of the coffee spout makes it difficult for some thermos to fit in. So you are left with putting it in a regular mug, then transferring it to the thermos. 4. The spout is angled inwards, making it a tad more difficult If I had to do it over again, I'd probably go with the old fashion coffee pot. P.S. I think the plastic spikes around the metal strip are placed so that the coffee drips onto the spikes.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend
