This is much better than my old st600 coffee maker
This coffee maker is one of the first few things we operate everytime we wake up in the morning.
I am really happy with how it performs and would be using this for a very long time.
We normally make 8 cups and it finishes in just under 6 minutes.
Coffee is pleasantly hot, needs blowing before sipping for us. Strength with DD ground coffee is nice and rich with one slightly rounded scoop per cup.
Carafe has positive click on lid to let you know when it is properly seated yet doesn't get tight when it's time to loosen to pour.
Filter holder has nicely designed engagement hook that ensures that it stays put when the pot is placed underneath.
The carafe is really designed greatly compared to other carafes of coffee machine I have owned in the past. This is much better than my old st600 coffee maker
