Great Coffee Maker

Summary: I love this coffee maker. I like that you push a button and you can dispense a cup anytime while it is brewing. I also will make really strong coffee by selecting bold on the screen. It is easy to clean. The only thing I don't like is when you pour water into the coffee maker it tends to drip. Overall I love this coffee maker.
Summary: This is a good coffee maker, except if you want to brew a full 12 cups it spills down the back and you end up with a wet counter. I fill to the 12 mark, it always leaks out the hole in the back. Good maker, with a just one problem.

Summary: Bought the scope coffee maker originally. Never got the water hot enough. Brewmaster on the other hand, makes hotter water. Contrary to other reviewers have had no issued with coffee dripping from the back, either with a big mug or tumbler. Only complain is the clocks light is more like a night light, way to bright!
Summary: I actually really love this coffee maker. I have had four of them. The coffee is always hot. I am a big coffee drinker. The negative is that the coffeemaker lasts a few months and then it quits brewing, that is why I have owned so many. I keep thinking I will get one that will last. maybe it is this one. I sure hope so, because I think it is the best coffee maker out there. I have had lots of others too. Typically they do not keep the coffee hot. This one does do that.
Troubleshooted the negative comment - and bought it!

Summary: I was in the market for a new coffeemaker, and I really wanted to try a Brewstation. The Summit Ultra seemed to be the best available with it's sleek design and 12 cup capacity. I see a lot of people negatively commenting on the supposed design flaw of this machine - the spout being too close to the back of the machine, thus coffee spills down the outside of you mug or cup. Well, after much online and in-store investigation of this product I bought it!
Summary: I got my Brewstation today. It's so easy to use and the coffee is delicious. I don't understand why some people can't dispense their coffee without spills. I tried different types of cups and had no problems dispensing the coffee. I also find that when I use the Bold setting I don't need to use as much coffee as I did with my old coffee pot to get a good strong pot of delicious coffee.
Summary: I really like this coffeemaker. It makes fresh tasting coffee and I like the idea of not having to clean a coffee pot. The only issue I've been having with it is that there is often a small pool of diluted coffee water under the front of the unit. I'm thinking it's related to the front plate and base area that you can remove to clean. Has any one else had this issue? Otherwise, I am overall happy with the product.
Summary: I like the coffee maker and would recommend it to anyone. The only issue I have found, is the location of the dispenser. It is hard to see when your cup is getting full, when using taller to-go cups. Although annoying, it is not a deal breaker for me. Keeps coffee tasting good to the last cup.
