User friendly features without bells and whistles

 

Easy to get started, nice clean design. All coffee makers in this price range tend to look a bit plasticy but this is no worse or better than any other. Relatively compact and the water reservoir comes off for easy cleaning and refilling. Timer works...

Makes great coffee

 

Nice styling, easy to use and brews a good cup of coffee. Not sure why it relies on paper filters of a non-standard size

Coffee in an instant - well almost.

 

Bought to replace a Bosch Tassimo, it does what I wanted. Fresh coffee without the mess. Throw away paper filter that's easily recycled. (Local council recycles food waste). Use any coffee instead of being restricted to one brand. So far so good.

Excellent filter coffee maker

 

I like coffee. I always use a filter maker with a timer so that it is ready when I get up. I have used this type of coffee maker over the past twenty years or so. The Melitta costs a bit more than equivalent products but I can honestly say it makes...

Proper coffee, times to perfection.

 

"I love a morning brew and every single working day I always take my trusty travel mug filled with coffee in my way out of the door. As much as I'd love to have a 'proper coffee' as opposed to instant, I just don't have the time. Until now! This...

The machine I didn't know that I couldn't live without.

 

"My house smells like Starbucks every morning. I am a coffee lover and up to now never knew I wanted a coffee machine. I thought it would be yet another machine that I'd use a few times and never bother with above and beyond the first few days. How...
