This coffee pot is the coffee pot that I have been looing for in a long time.
The coffee it makes is top quality and I must say that it taste like coffee made from starbucks!
Before you pour a cup, you have to unscrew the lid by half a turn. If you are a troglodyte who feels the need to turn the entire pot upside down in order to pour yourself a cup of coffee, then yes, you can expect it to leak.
Otherwise you will be fine. Before using this machine, just try to read the instructions because it is very clear on the steps to do to make a great cup of coffee. Delonghi coffee maker is the best.
