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: Love this brew station. My only complaint is that the pour area could be a little "taller" so that a larger cup could fit. We buy 12 oz cups for our sunday school and the station has to be scooted to the edge of the counter for the cup to fit properly.
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.
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.
I gave it only 4 stars because we have used it only once and already the bottom on the inside has begun to pit.

Summary: We bought this product because of the dispenser. We have had many urns with spout dispensers and invariably someone would mistakenly push the spout to the open position and hot water would go all over. With this dispenser the spout is recessed so it is very unlikely to get pushed accidentally.
