Summary: 1.5 months into my purchase with daily use. I researched heavily, read the reviews here and elsewhere. I settled on this version because of the auto off feature. I had targeted the larger reservoir version but it was on back order. I worried that I would not have enough coffee per brew. (Euro 10 cup yields 40oz vs US 10 cup at 60). I have been happy and satisfied with the volume for my wife and I.
Truly makes the best cup of coffee I have ever had

Summary: Truly makes the best cup of coffee I have ever had. I have tried various caliber coffees to test the flavor, and all have been great! I'm typically a "would you like some coffee with your cream and sugar" kind of coffee drinker, but since this machine, I can either drink it black or with a small splash of cream. It's fantastic! I HIGHLY recommend saving your pennies for this bad boy - it's worth every cent!
Summary: Love this thing! Make sure you get at least a burr grinder along with it. You don't need one of the expensive grinders but a $40 or $50 one is definitely worth it. My wife and I can't wait to get up every day and make coffee.
Broken tab but will hold final judgement after longer ownership
J. C. P., Amazon
31 January 2015
Summary: I'm planning on updating this review over period of my ownership of this coffee maker. Day 1 - 7: One of two tabs that holds the dripper is broken on day 1. I'm not sure if it was broken as I was taking it out or it was broken before or broken while taking out the dripper. Unless you are extra careful to slight lift and slide, these will break and when it does, your dripper sits uneven when there's nothing in the dripper. Coffee made through this is noticeably smoother.
