Besides my Bialetti and manual filter devices, this machine is the coffee maker I'm using on an everyday basis all day long.
Making coffee with this machine is very quick. So fast, that I don't feel the need to use its programming features.
Well, I'm one of those people that jump out of bed happy and totally awake. So if you are one of those who hates waking up, programming might be just what you need.
I use it with 3 Coraçoes Brazilian coffee, and the combo produces a perfect mild drip coffee with just the taste I long for.
It took me a bit of time to find which types of roast and grind would do well with this machine, but that was not a problem for me. It actually was rather fun. I use 6 1/2 leveled tablespoons for the full water container, and it's just fantastic.
I also use the nylon filter that comes with the package and find no reason to buy a different one just for commercial coffee consumption.
Even with gourmet coffees, the filter works well. However, it might be wiser to find a better option in this case.
Cleaning and keeping the machine is quite easy, even despite the fact that we make about 2 to 3 full coffee brews a day.
If you are looking for a simple and quick coffee maker at a fair and reasonably low price, I suggest you buy the Hamilton Beach 48464 Coffee Maker.
