Positive Product Points

Controls were very usable.

Negative Product Points

I just couldn't make a decent cup of coffee with the MT500.  I had been looking forward to using it but I was very disappointed.

Detailed Commentary

I was very disappointed with the Capresso MT500.  As stated, I couldn't make a decent cup of coffee, regardless of strength of coffee, or grind.  I thought I was doing something incorrectly, so I called Capresso (there customer service department is decent).  But I wasn't.  It did finish brewing quickly, and I did like the program contral buttons.  I even ordered more charcoal filters and the coffee cleaning solution sold by Capresso.  But in the most important respect, making coffee, the MT500 failed.  I went back to using my Starbucks Barista Aroma.

Buying Experience

I received the MT500 promptly.
