Detailed Commentary

Makes great tasting coffee in a hurrey. I like the flavor of french press and vacuum a little better but this gets close enough. The stainless boiler is what sold me on it. I also like the convenience of a charcoal filter. Its nice to get a permanent filter with it as well. The coffee quality is very similar to my Technivorm. Probably better. The carafe seems to be a high quality but I have only had it for a month so I guess time will tell. I had a problem putting it into the dishwasher (water leaked inside but drained out later). I am very happy with it thus far.

Buying Experience

Bought from Williams Sonoma. They back what they sell. Alittle more expensive though.
