1pc Baby Girl Cotton Lovely Stylish Jumpsuit Review
Meli: If you like the grind and brew, this is the best one for the money. It's easy to clean, doesn't hog too much counter space and is easy to program. I gave it four stars because I like really stong coffee (Turkish) and there is no slow brew option. I had the original Cuisinart pot, which was painfully loud and had too many parts to clean. For the money, I'd recommend it. For those who like strong coffee, you'll have to use extra beans.
Mir: I've had this coffeemaker for a month now, and I'm very pleased. It's quick, it's quiet (my previous one was so noisy in the brewing!), and it's easy to rinse out the mesh basket and lid.It does take a bit of getting used to when you get it. The instructions are not the most clear ones I've ever seen. But once you get the hang of it, it's just lovely. And I've never had a better cup of coffee made at home.Recommended.
notaprofessional "notaprofessional": I was skeptical about this machine... it seemed to good to be true. After nearly a week, though, of rolling over to hear the grinder start up in the morning, lying there smiling as the most aromatic and delicious coffee is brewed *immediately* after being ground, I'm a believer. It's the most delightful few minutes, awake, starting to smell superfresh coffee.The timer is the big win, and that this timer triggers both the grinder and the brewing. The grinder works well--certainly as well as these ubiquitous stand-up press-the-top grinders. However, with this particular coffeemaker, you never end up with grounds all over the countertop and floor because they are ground and brewed inside the coffeemaker. For some reason, perhaps because it is brewed immediately after being ground, the coffee smell is un-real--and this machine's coffee better approaches that sort of coffee which tastes like it smells.The design is nice and the machine is pretty intuitive: it won't let you set the timer if you haven't filled the water reservoir, for instance, or if you've improperly closed the grinder/brewer basket into the machine after adding beans. Because the grinding takes place in the brewing basket, you pull the whole thing out and rinse it off, blades and all; this is an improvement over the stale grounds that would accumulate in a standard grinder such as one doesn't generally have the luxury of running under the tap.Reviews about it being hard to clean have been written by people who are focusing on that one ground stuck in the mesh--but imagine all the grounds that aren't all over the counter after you transfer the coffee from the grinder to the maker. This machine is quite the thing.
Paul H: This has been an excellent coffeemaker so far. We love the grind/brew combo and are also using the timer so that a fresh pot of java is ready when we come downstairs in the morning.ProsWorks exactly like it should. Far more features than you would expect at this price. Wonderful value.ConsThe water fill slot is a little small and takes a steady hand.
Picturesque Music: It does what it advertises and its controls are simple, though not 100% intuitive (for instance, if the mill light is turned on, I figure it will mill, but in fact pressing the mill button and its light subsequently turning on means that the mill will not kick-in, shoould one desire to use pre-ground, but this is explained in the instructions).I detest coffees as strong as the typical Starbucks and prefer more along the lines of Tim Hortons (i.e., not ghastly and over-strong). I find that one scoop of beans is good for 1-1.5 cups of coffee, not 1 scoop per 2 as the instructions say. Since the grinder/mill is built in, the stuff that's kicked off to the side of the filter will stay there, unlike with a separate unit with which a person would likely pour it into the center of the filter and perhaps this explains the requirement of extra coffee.An important note I feel to add is that the coffee brews to an acceptable temperature. My old coffee maker required a quick microwaving of the coffee to get it warm enough. The one I have at work makes it scalding hot, but this one can be drank straight out of the pot immediately, for my temp-likings.Last thing (unrelated to this particular product): I thought that a timer on a coffee machine was a good idea. Now that I have a timer, I've never used it. Afterall, coffee takes only a few minutes to brew, so what's the big deal with waiting for those few min in the morning? Just something to think about :) I wanted a cheap, well-reviewed mill & coffee maker all-in-one unit and this is it and it works, so it gets five stars!
