Summary: I bought this item before it was released. the release date got pushed back a couple of time, but I am happy that I wated for it. I have always been happy with Krups products in the past and they delieved again on this product.
Summary: I was so excited when I discovered this coffee maker and read the rave reviews. Unfortunately, the first one I ordered had a problem with its clock which ran fast several minutes to the hour. So, there was no way to use the programming. I returned the item and exchanged it for a second.
Summary: My 4 year old Cusinart stopped working and although it served me well over the years, it was time to find a coffee maker that served "hot" flavorful freshly grounded coffee. My husband bought this coffee maker for me after I researched every grind & brew currently available.
Summary: This machine makes one of the best cups of coffee I have ever had at home. I have owned the machine for six weeks, and have used it daily. This was the fourth coffee maker I purchased since my quest for a great cup of coffee in my own kitchen began several months ago.
Summary: I have had a number of grind and brew coffeemakers, Cusinarts (awful), Melittas (nice), and this one. The KM7000 is, by far, the easiest to clean, which solves the biggest problem with this type of appliance. Just remove the filter basket, throw out the filter, rinse, and you're ready to go again.
Summary: Works great, grinder is slightly messy, tends to spray the beans especially on first use. Great tasting coffee and hot, after owning the Capresso Grind and Brew was looking for a similar set-up but wanted my coffee hot. Well worth the price.
