I am a coffeeholic. I received this coffee maker as a birthday gift and use it at least daily, more on weekends.
Good: It brews fast (6min or less), hot (>200F by my thermometer) enough to extract fully without bitterness, and the carafe keeps at a drinkable temp for several hours. The grounds get even saturation.
Could be better: Spills a bit when filling the reservoir, small amount of liquid in the lid and basket drips at wrong times. This is annoying but not a big deal.
Bottom line: It is head and shoulders above any other drip machine I have tried, except the Technivorm. The Technivorm is also quite good, but it costs twice as much.
