Summary: This machine makes great coffee. But don't buy it unless you're prepared to take a chance on the build quality, or empty the tank after each use. I ignored the reviews that said "this machine leaks", and bought one anyway. I used it to make coffee twice a day for 6 weeks, and really loved it, though having to go through the pre-heat process beforehand and wash the parts by hand ("not suitable for the dishwasher") was a bit of a pain.
Summary: This coffee maker looks good left out on the kitchen worktop, but beware when you next go into the kitchen you may find a puddle on your floor and the worktop. After filling the water tank then making just one cup of coffee, i went back to find that water had leaked all over the place. Therfore i have now got into the habit of making sure i empty any remaining water out of the tank. Not that ideal when it is supposed to hold ample supply.
