The first week, before it falls apart, the coffee is one notch over the poisonous home brew range.
Negative Product Points
Very very VERY poor construction. Leks left and right, cheapest grade plastic, inconsistent brewing results.
We have had several machines (get receiving replacements) but none ever worked for a long period of time. We do make 2 to 3 pots a day, but that is no reason to produce crappy product. The water filter is bypassed left and right due to poor fit. The water canister is poor design (leaks most of the time). The light to dark button is inconsistent. The actual Flavor Savor technology soaks the coffee for a while in the filter, but this gives inconsistent results. Coffee tastes burnt on day and overly light the other while using smae batch and grind. Part of that is the crappy grinder KM30 Braun, but hey, not all of that can be blamed on Braun. If you're gonna charge around 90$ for a coffee machine (we paid significantly less on ebay) then you better have some unique selling point to go off of. They do not.
