Detailed Commentary

Used this product for 6 months.  Great for a new user, but as I explore coffee, this product is not what you may be looking for.  It's expensive, but you'll spend the same if you buy a quality ginder and coffee pot seperately.  If you don't like to clean everyday, look elsewhere.  It has many parts which require a daily cleaning to ensure you get the same great taste you are looking for.  I had a Braun Flavor Select before and it didn't have replacement parts when I broke it (it was 7 years old).  I upgraded to this to get into the whole bean market.  It does make a fresh, enjoyable pot for a novice, but I think a pro wouldn't be happy.  Above average rating.

Buying Experience

Expensive, but would have spent the same money for coffee maker and ginder.  No issues with buying experience.

Three Month Followup

I now it's been over three month's, but I'm selling this product.  Why, I have found that I want better quality in my coffee product.  This machine is tough to clear, plastic,  and doesn't provide enough enjoyment for a novice or advanced coffee drinker.  Blade Grinders are out, burr is in.  If you're looking to get into the whole bean market and expand your coffee experience, stay away from this product.  This coffee pot is no better that a Mr. Coffee with a blade grinder on the top.  I'm getting a Solis Burr Grinder, Braun Flavor Select Coffee Maker, Bialetti Stove Top "Espresso" (not really if you study espresso) Maker, French Press, Camping Cup to steep with, and buying fresh beans.  I believe this will cover all the bases for a novice on a budget.

One Year Followup

Don't buy it.
