It made me drink more cups coffee than I used to
Every morning, it has been my daily routine to go to coffee bean and tea lead coffee shop and get my daily coffee from them.
I have been finding a perfect machine to produce the same quality of coffee that the coffee shop is producing.
Although I don't mind the strong setting, I set this machine to medium. I also enjoy straight espresso, so that tells you I know strong from weak coffee. No, the coffee doesn't gush from the pot, but again, who cares.
Regarding the coffee being hot...It takes me hours to finish off 8 cups and it's steaming hot all day without preheating the thermal carafe.
So, where that comes from I don't know. All in all, the machine is a great coffee machine that produces a great tasting, coffee shop quality machine.
