Excerpt: We purchased this Black & Decker coffee maker after our old coffee maker quit. We didn't have much money and decided to purchase an inexpensive coffee maker to get us through a year. That was three years ago.
Excerpt: This is a great coffeemaker but small output. I drink large mugs of coffee so this model is small for that purpose if I plan on sharing the pot with anyone else. It brews fine ground expresso coffee fantistic and you get the full expresso flavor and no bitter aftertaste. The pot produces hot steaming coffee and brew area holds back all but the most minimal powder from even the finest expresso grounds from the pot.
Black & Decker 5 cup coffee maker is your standard brewer

Excerpt: This coffee maker is a very standard, average coffee maker. It does a great job of making a smaller amount of coffee but just doesn't have any of the bells and whistles. It has an indicator on the side for water level and is easy to use. It brews well and the pot is very easy to clean. We have not had any trouble with our coffee maker, but do not use it on a regular basis either. We only use it around holidays or when we have guests over.
