Summary: This machine is great....if you like weak, watery, not very hot coffee. I know there are lots of hints and tips on the reviews here, but why do I have to manipulate the machine in order to get something approaching what I expected? However, you get what you pay for.
Nice machine with a reliable timer and great value for money

Summary: Having been grinding out beans and brewing our coffee in separate machines for the last year, this machine has been wonderful. Compared to our previous model, which was much more expensive and didn't have a built in grinder, the display and timer are great.
Summary: great machine for price all positve so far only been using for a month,only down side so far that it will use all water put in so if you put in 12 cups (full) it uses it even though you may have programmed 4 cups this is how it is its worth living with for decent coffee.
Summary: This was bought for us as a gift a year ago to the month. It has been in use every day, perhaps twice a day. We are coffee-holics and like a decent cup of strong coffee. However we found that even on the strong setting we had to supplement the beans with additional ground coffee as it does not grind...
Summary: So glad I found the second review down from "durwin" , this has now become an awesome coffee machine! I suggest you read the instructions there to brew a strong one.

Summary: Very pleased with my purchase. The grinder is a little noisy but only runs for a very short time. The timer is an excellent feature, setting the machine to grind and brew ready for the morning is delightful.
the intensity of the beans (mind you I do like strong and black ) is far superior and the ...

Summary: The first one ordered was used twice and unfortunately developed a fault ,the grinder stopped working ,however this was quickly and efficiently replaced (thanks to Amazon) and has been in daily use since-about 6 weeks .
Summary: Further review, As I learn more about "perfect coffee", There is a downside to this machine: A lot of ground coffee collects between grinder and filter. This will get pushed down when you next make coffee.....
Summary: The product concept is ok ( I am a fan of coffee machines that could use ground coffee and coffee beans ). The problem of this coffeemaker is that you could not take the carafe before the brewing is finish , you will have boiled water and coffee all over.
