gets a little messy under the hood, but so does a Chrysler 300 (sorry, I love those cars)
I fell in love with this machine right out of the box! It looks really great on the counter and takes up no more room than any other conventional drip brewer. After I RTFM I was even more impressed by the user options on this bad mofo. You can really customize this thing to specifications that most other drip makers don't allow . The optional small pot button helps keep the lonely brewer in business with hot coffee. Also, the ability to turn the carafe heater down is a real plus. I'm not a huge fan of burnt coffee so I swiftly transfer to insulated server carafe after brew cycle. This also helps when setting the Auto-On feature. You can sleep soundly knowing you won't wake up to scorched brew. I have owned this machine for over four years and never get tired of pushing that ultra-neat switch that turns grounds into sweet liquid gold. (I'm talking about the on button in case you didn't know.) This machine comes with a water filter that needs replaced ever so often. You can remedy this by just brewing with pre-filtered purified water, which you should be doing anyways. I have read plenty of home roaster complaints about this machine and can't say anything about that, since I don't roast much at home. Hopefully this will soon change and I can complain right along with the rest of them. In the four plus years that I have owned this machine, performance has not changed once. It runs just as good as the very first time I brewed with it.
Yeah, you know, the whole store thing. Didn't ask any questions, fell in love and took it home like a stray dog that you can't resist.
