Summary: Does only one thing, and it does it well, brew the coffee!!! This replaced a Cuisinart grinder/coffee maker. This machine has no timer, no grinder, no clock. But it has a mechanism that brews coffee to perfection. The only thing I find annoying is the plastic base the carafe sits on. It has a groove that matches the bottom of the coffee maker but it does not lock in place so when sliding the coffee maker around, this piece comes dislodged.
Perfect if you are up for a coffee ritual to produce unparalleled coffee.

Summary: We upgraded to the Technivorm Moccamaster after three Zojirushi coffeemakers over about 10 years (still an excellent product, by the way) and a Cuisinart before that. We loved the convenience of the Zojirushis and their automatic timer, but at the end of the day, we kept wondering if we could get a better morning cup. So when we saw Cook's Illustrated recommend this one, we took the plunge.
Summary: This coffee maker is wonderful. All of my life, I have searched for a coffeemaker that would make consistently good coffee. I have had some good coffeemakers before, but this has them all beat. The Bonavita may be less money, but it is unlikely that their maker will last as long as the Moccamaster because they do not have the quality of inner workings that the Technivorm has. I would recommend spending the extra money and thus being happier for years to come!
Summary: This is the best coffee maker I have ever had... I like it so much... I ordered a second one for our beach house. Not only does it make excellent coffee but it is incredibly simple to set up and use... no extra buttons to push, timers to set, etc... It just makes a great tasting pot of coffee in about 5 minutes and you can pour a cup early... Although most of the time, the coffee is brewed by the time I get around to pouring my first cup.
Summary: As a coffee lover, this coffeemaker is easy to use, easy to clean and makes coffee (even robust dark fresh ground coffees) without bitterness, Far superior to the Cuisenarts, Bruns, Mr. Coffees etc. Well worth the price.
Summary: I purchased this particular coffee maker after seeing a review and recomendation on America's Test Kitchen. I have been using it for a few weeks and really like it. It is very simple and utilitarian. It brews perfect coffee fast. Some people may want a model that can be programmed to turn on automatically.
Summary: This was a total fail for me. I had hoped that I could put this on a time and use it as an auto-coffee maker that had my joe ready when I woke. No. If you do that, then your coffee is cold. I tried it twice, and went back to my old pot. The drip through lid has a large opening - so unless you time it perfectly, you are drinking cold coffee. And I spent a ton of money, and can't return it because i don't have the packaging. It is sitting on my counter unused.
Summary: I've owned this coffe maker for a bit over 6 weeks now and I am extremely pleased. I had read several reviews before buying that almost dissuaded me from making my purchase. A few of those are listed below, with my findings: 1. No automatic turnoff switch -when I go to pour my first cup, I turn the machine off. It's my routine, and have never had a problem 2.
