Summary: I just purchased the coffee maker a few weeks ago,it works perfectly and the coffee tastes great. The simplicity of it all is great, easy to make and easy to keep clean. It may cost a little more than some of the others, but if your going to use something every day, then it should be high quality. Any issues people had with previous versions are done away with in this model. If you really like coffee....get one.
Summary: We bought about four coffee makers before the Moccamaster. Every single one of them broke within a year of purchase, and none of them worked right. We finally took a chance on the Moccamaster, and I have to say that it’s been the best coffee maker we’ve owned. It gets the water temperature right and makes a fantastic cup of coffee. As others have pointed out, the machine has its problems, namely the flow control lever on the basket.
Summary: It truly does lower the acid in your coffee. The karaf/vacuum bottle keeps coffee warm for hours. I was surprised that java was warm enough to drink the next morning. Machine has no heating pad which increases acidity, suppose it saves a drop of energy as well.
Summary: Coffee pot works great! I love the coffee, although I don't have a sensitive palate so I may have liked a cheaper coffee pot as well. I've gotten over having to grind my coffee separately, but still wish the pot had an automatic off setting. Also, the plastic threads stripped out pretty quick after we got it. Now we don't so much as screw the brewers cap on as we "wedge" it on.
Best home coffee maker, period. Spend the money and get the last coffee maker you will own! Will not disappoint!

Summary: I love coffee. We have gone through so many machines, I can't even count. This machine makes the best coffee hands down. I prefer coffee from this machine to any retail coffee chain out there.
Expensive? Yes, but easy to use and you can taste the difference.

Summary: Easy to use and clean after 2 or 3 days use and reading the instructions a couple times. Definite improvement in flavor and richness of coffee and greater heat keeps the flavor longer. Thermo carafe worth the extra to keep the coffee hotter without killing the taste on a heater. Spendy, but should last for years (paying for itself over a couple years) and thetaste improvement is noticeable immediately.
Summary: This coffeemaker makes great coffee that is consistent from one pot to the next. While you do have to stir the grounds while brewing, it's easy and does not take more than a few seconds. The carafe keeps the coffee hot for few hours. As others have said, having more of a spout on the carafe would make it easier to pour. It is well built and a quality product! Overall, I would recommend this coffeemaker and I would purchase it again!
