Summary: Bought this as a replacement for my one cup coffee maker that bit the dust., you know which one. The positive reviews are justified. We started buying regular coffee beans and grinding them at the store. Coffee gets stored in air tight containers which keep it pretty fresh.
Summary: This Hamilton Beach 40540 Brew Station is a very nice machine with the nice feature of your being able to fill your cup with ease. However, it does "drip" so you need to place something under the cup dispenser to catch the drips or your table will be coffee-soaked.
Not really 40 cups, but good quality for the price.

Summary: If you drink 6 oz drinks then, yes, it's a 40 cup brew station...but even small coffee cups hold more than 6 oz...it's more like 20-25 cups. However, it heats within minutes and is pretty quiet. It was great for a baby shower that hosted 45 people - I just had to refill it.

Summary: It's a great size and and a useful unit. We have this unit for many months and had a previous same exact unit for a few years. However, there are a few major faults with this unit: 1. The electrical cord is attached to the back and is can not be removed.
Summary: I bought this in May 2013. For the last six months, it has been clogging. My wife has cleaned the drain several times, but the coffee just trickles out. It is so frustrating that we are now in the market for new coffee maker and we will avoid Hamilton Beach.
Excerpt: The Hamilton Beach BrewStation is a great 12 cup coffee maker. It claims that the coffee stays fresh longer for better coffee taste. It does make great coffee and keeps it good for over 2 hours. As a mother of two young children I …
