Good product but NOISEY


The product works well, but the grinder is too loud to use on the programmed setting, as it would wake up the entire household! When beans are being ground, it sounds like a jet is taking off in my kitchen. It's also rather sloppy, ground beans tend to...

My Favorite Coffee Maker


Makes a great pot of coffee and I love the style of this coffee maker. I previously owned this model twice. Eventually had trouble removing the grinding cup as I've read in so many other reviews. Since I still prefer the look of this model over the...

Easy & Sleek & Straight to the Point.


Easy to operate. Easy to clean. Removable parts are dishwasher friendly. No extra bells and whistles except for grinder which isn't a hassle at all. Pause and brew option doesn't require a push of a button, simply pour your cup of coffee and replace...

Makes delicious coffee


We've used this style machine for many years and appreciate how fresh our coffee is when we can grind the beans immediately before brewing. Company often compliments us on our coffee. Best price on this model was at The Home Depot.
