Summary: Was skeptical at first about whether this was worth the price and could brew any better than a cheaper model. Man, was I wrong. This thing brews the best coffee I've ever made at home. Very easy to use, very consistent coffee quality (literally brews identical tasting pots every time).
Summary: Gee whiz. I had high hopes for this one. I'm a big fan of Cooks Illustrated / America's Test Kitchen. I've bought many pieces of equipment based on their reviews, and I've never been disappointed. Until now. Right out of the box, I noticed that the water reservoir was broken with a hole in it.
Summary: For serious coffee drinkers who prefer a no frills, high quality brew made with appropriately hot water this is it. No timers, clocks, heating elements that scorch your coffee, or any other extraneous features.
Summary: Since we've switched from a Cuisinart with ground coffee, to the Moccamaster using fresh ground beans, we are in coffee heaven, Is it the beans or the coffee maker? I don't know. But this is super easy to use, and very easy to clean.
Summary: Great brewed coffee with little to no bitterness. This machine is very easy to operate. If coffee flavor is important to you and it is to me; then the Moccamaster is well worth its expense. Three small issues: The footplate is plastic and flimsy; it has no seat on a product of this quality.
Summary: Perfect...very happy. Have purchased 3 Delonghi coffee pots in a row because the coffee was so good, the problem was they always ended up leaking on the counter and at $80 a pop I was frustrated.
Summary: I owned the previous version of this coffee maker (2006) and this one is better because of the elimination of the awkward drip-device that controlled the flow of water through the filter. Using this version had it's learning curve however.
