I am much happy with this than my old plumed coffee maker
This front load access of delonghi is a gret idea of their company.
I am really happy with owning this unit as it is very easy to use.
I agree with other reviewers that the coffee could be hotter for longer time, but that doesn't bother me. I'd rater not have it piping hot anyway.
Coffee stays hot for about 2 hours, but not boiling hot. This is what I prefer so that I can sip it right away.
I am much happy with this than my old plumed coffee maker, for those who dont have any idea, a plumbed coffeemakers install into the wall and hooks directly to your water supply.
This is a no no for me, because I usually have some problems after quite some time and it is hard to dismantle the coffee maker.
