Better than my old coffee grind
I think that the Braun kf590 impressions digital 10-cup programmable coffeemaker makes a good cup of coffee.
I’ve used other coffee equipment and I must say that this one is better than my old coffee grind
but not as good the French press I use when I have the time, but definitely good for a drip machine.
Maybe it is the effect of gold-tone filter versus paper filters, but I taste much more distinct flavors in my coffee than my old machine. Overall I am very pleased with the coffee.
The KF590 is part of the Impressions line which won the Reddot design award in 2004 and it does look slick. However, some of the design looks better than it functions.
For example, the lid of the carafe is plastic and it feels cheap and rattles about. The lid does not open all the way and so must be removed each time you clean the carafe. However, the lid snaps into place easily which is good.
