Excerpt: You will pay more for this coffee maker but you will be getting more. Brews that perfect cup of coffee time and time again which will please anybody but the added bonus is the insulated pot that holds the finished coffee after the brewing cycle has ended.
Great coffee maker, but has special filters you have to use.

Excerpt: My mother and father in law have this coffee maker at their home. They are big coffee drinkers and only drink starbucks brand. My husband and I stick to the cheap folgers, so it is definitley a treat when we go to visit them and we get fresh starbucks every morning.
Excerpt: We purchase our coffee from a coffee store and grind it ourselves. We do like hot and strong coffee. The reviews for the Capresso were so good we didn't think we could go wrong. We had been using a Krups machine that finally became unreliable with age.
Excerpt: When my husband and I got married a few years ago, we decided to "invest" in a good, quality coffeemaker since we are both avid coffee drinkers ... and we knew our coffeemaker would be used A LOT. After doing a good amount of research, we decided to purchase this Capresso machine.
The best coffee maker available, and I've had many!

Excerpt: After going through many "popular" brands of coffee makers, I finally settled on this one even though I had no previous knowledge of the brand name. I read lots of reviews which is why I want to offer my own so it might help someone else make the same excellent purchase.
Summary: I HAVE HAD THIS CAPRESSO FOR ABOUT 3 WEEKS AND LOVE IT. I HAVE BEEN SEARCHING FOR A REPLACEMENT FOR MY KRUPS THERMAL THAT I HAVE HAD FOR MANY YEARS AND FOUND THIS ONE. IT HAS THE LOOK I WANTED AND IT PERFORMS EXACTLY AS I WANTED.
Summary: I wish I had purchased this one a long time ago. Far better than the Braun, Krups and Cuisinarts that I had previously used. The coffee is both rich and smooth. I tested the unit with plain water before brewing coffee and I just want to quickly address 2 criticisms.
Excerpt: The Capresso MT500 Model # 441 coffeemaker is an excellant solution for someone (like me) who is constantly breaking the glass decanters. The handbook is helpful and support is exceptional if you have any problems. It is easy to set up for your first pot of coffee.
Summary: Our new Capresso MT550Plus was an unplanned replacement for a much-used 471 "breakfast coffee-maker" that went belly-up a few days ago. After one morning of use, the MT550 has shown itself to be an excellent upgrade. We are fussy about our morning coffee.
