The size, style and coffee brewing performance is top notch. Never believed a home brewed coffee could be as good as what this maker produces. Have been using a Gaggia Brera for nearly three years and love it, but just wanted another brewer to make more than one cup at a time. Purchased this one based on the ability to adjust the brew temperature and it delivers great taste. The only curious ... read more

Some of these reviews seem overly harsh. I own a coffee shop and have been a judge at several barista competitions and this is my machine of choice for home. Yes, the burr grinder is loud. I can hear it in my bedroom and so it serves as a backup alarm clock. It isn't a problem if you aren't trying to sleep through it. The claim that it doesn't brew hot coffee is NOT my experience. I bought this ma ... read more

We've had 2 Capresso's with the grinder that swung over a glass carafe for about the last 10 years. The first one had the LCD drop down after about 6 years. It's been relagated to my garage. The second one is going strong at our retirement/vacation home.
We bought this one as a replacement for our main house.
Pros - Thermal carafe!! easier to clean grind chute.
Cons - LOUD!!! Everybody w ... read more

Wow! What a great machine. Easy to use. I was pleasantly surprised---when you start it, the water almost immediately starts to come out. Water temp has been perfect. We have the glass carafe, it's light and easy to clean. We had a 20 year old Krups that was top rated by a major consumer reporting guide at the time. When we replaced it with three different and higher rated (by far) coffee m ... read more

I have had this coffeemaker for a year and a half. The first week I used it there were problems with the grinder and I had to send it to KRUPS for repair. They took care of the S&H, so that was a plus. What I discussed with the representative was the kind of coffee beans I was using -Caribou French Roast, and she told me that if thy were oily beans, they certainly would clog the grinder. Actually ... read more

While the idea is fantastic, the design is flawed. Should have been designed w/o moving parts aside from the great burr grinder. As it is, the brew chamber has a lid with gear teeth that are SUPPOSED to be turned by a gear wheel in the housing, taking the rotating cap through three different stations; grind, brew and hold. The basket/gear wheel connection is very sporadic in its decision to work o ... read more

I've had the fancy coffee makers but I'd much rather have 10 of these to one of those. This is simple to use, coffee drips fast and just the right temperature. It's perfect for the one coffee drinker in my home, ME! ... read more

Got it a couple days ago, I had just got a bag of Kona in the mail from BlueMacaw Roasters and could smell it in the mailbox. I prepped the machine and got the green light
, pulsed a 8oz cup, tasted acrylic even after several more cups. The grinds were a pain to deal with so I got some round Aeropress and that gave A Excellent Cup & the grind cleanup was 80 present better. That afternoon my W ... read more
