I work at a Starbucks(I hope you don‘t think i‘m biased)and love coffee. The ease of this machine is wonderful. French pressed flavor w/less work.
Positive Product Points
Thermal pot and ease of use
Negative Product Points
Drip coffee machines usually don‘t produce as true a flavor as coffee presses or vaccum pots. The construction worries me also. It is all thin plastic.
$149 Expensive coffee machine It makes great coffee for a drip machine. You should add the stainless steel filter(not included) which will allow the coffee oils through. It has a timer which allows you to program your coffee for the morning.
