Positive Product Points

Easy to use.  Quite a show in the morning.  Excellent cup of coffee - Save some for later to make Iced coffee..its the best and richest Ive ever had.

Negative Product Points

Price.  Kind of loud and startling in the morning if you use the timer.

Detailed Commentary

As someone who spends quite a bit of money on coffee each month for what I feel is quality stuff, I was beginning to get frustrated with my Braun Automatic drip coffeemaker.  I would buy the beans from Starbucks and no matter how I ground them, or how much or little I added to the filter, I could never make a cup as good as Starbucks.  I saw the Utopia in the store once and almost gagged at the site of it.  It looks so strange, but I thought, "hey, I bet that would make a good conversation piece for somebody."

Anyway, this past Fathers day rolled around and my family gave me a gift cert. for starbucks.  I thought Id get a new coffeepot or something.  Well, I started taking another look at the Utopia.  And thought, what the heck, its soo darn weird, it might work!

I got it home and seasoned it, and set it up to automatically brew 6 cups the next morning - they threw in a 1/2 lb. of Mexican blend.  Anyway, the next morning, I was ironing a shirt and the pot started up...in a quiet house, its about like hearing a jet plane firing up in the kitchen.  Well, after it was done with its show, I poured off a cup and low and behold, it was bold and delicious!  I took the rest to work with me and drank it throughout the morning.  It was so good, I was regretting getting to the last drop...and in actuality, it almost seems the more this coffee cools, the better it tastes!  I have no idea why the cold version of what this coffeemaker produces sticks out so much in my mind - I guess I usually burn my toungue on the hot stuff, so I never really get to taste it - the cold stuff just seems so rich and full.
