Hot, delicious Java


I have owned 4 other 4 cup coffee makers over the years. ( 3 Mr. Coffee and 1 Black & Decker). This by far the best. The coffee brews quickly, is hot and because the basket/filter is cone shaped the flavor is fantastic. I consider myself somewhat of...

Be careful pouring!!


The Kitchenaid Compact coffee maker has a lot going for it. The unit is ultra compact, so it won't eat up too much counter space, and it is very stylish.

more than just coffee


I bought this product because I wanted the feature that keeps your coffee warm while you have a couple more cups. I'm the only one in the house who drinks coffee and I was spending to much money on the single bags of coffee. I'd like to say how much...
