I suggest you try this unit because it wont dissapoint you like what my old zojirushi coffee machine
I have owned many coffee makers before and sometimes I also had the very expensive and fancy machines.
But when I had this machine, I was really happy because it performs all that I expect of a coffee maker.
So easy to clean too. We only made 2 pots until we got the taste that we wanted.
The noise from the grinder doesn't bother me at all, it only lasts a short time until it stops grinding, but I guess it could wake some one up from sleep.
We are ready to get up anyway. The flavor of the coffee we use is so clean and fresh, the aroma wafts thru the house while it is brewing.
I suggest you try this unit because it wont disappoint you like what my old zojirushi coffee machine.
I bought this machine for less than 100 dollars, and this machine is did not really perform well. The coffee tastes really bad and the machine broke down after 3 months.
I warn people not to buy this zojirushi coffee machine.
