I think this is better than my coffee from starbucks
Just bought this unit yesterday. Looks really good on my countertop, and I absolutely love the front access.
It came with the permanent gold basket filter which was a plus compared to other models that sold it separately.
All the controls were very easy to follow and I can say that even a kid can be able to operate this.
The aroma function dose add time to brewing, but it's a great option when time allows.
I really happy that the pour while brewing feature allows you to just pull the pot out mid brew, without dripping a single drop on the burner.
Another plus was the pot dose not drip or spill while pouring, really a well designed carafe. The coffee produced was hot but the temperature is drinkable.
The cup warmer was another nice option though it doesn't heat the cup it does take the chill out of it which otherwise would have cooled the coffee.
