This coffee maker is a great looking coffee maker, it is so easy to operate but to get the best taste from this coffee maker, you have to throw away the remaining coffee beans and the remaining coffee in the carafe.
It is very easy to clean and it is a tough coffee maker. My only small complaint in this coffee maker would be the grinder.
I have had several grinders but all are somewhat noisy when used, but this actually grinds the beans and then a sound is also loud, that gets louder and louder until the coffee is ground and ready to go.
Once the coffee begins dripping down into the pot it is but a few moments, and you're drinking coffee that is as fresh as any you would pay for a cup of coffee at a local coffee shop.
