Summary: I bought this unit a year and a half ago, as a Christmas gift for my wife and I - we love our morning coffee. The conical burr grinder is awesome. The programmable timer was a great feature for having our coffee ready in the mornings.
Summary: I am on my second Capresso. The first died because I tried to use it too quickly between runs as I was trying to clean it. It shut itself down and wouldn't restart. I had it for over ten years.
Summary: the only drawback to this coffeemaker is that I get up about two hours after my husband and love my coffee very, very hot. I don't feel the carafe keeps it at a very hot temperature for two hours or more. Yes, it's hot, but not as hot as I would like it. Overall, it's a wonderful coffemaker.
Pros: Brews Quickly, Durable, Easy To Clean, Easy To Use, Large Pot, Multiple Settings
Summary: Unfortunately I was not happy with this product. I found that the coffee, regardless of setting, was just not strong enough. I have had the previous version of the Capresso Grind and Brew for over 7 years and it has been excellent. This new model does not measure up in my opinion.
