Bottom Line: Not for daily use but rather on special occasions. Nice look and very good smelling and tasting coffee. Stays hot for quite a while in the copper vessel. Very handy spigot, to fill the cups from.
Positive Product Points

Beautiful product and very nice to use while having company.
Brewing at the table with the guests present.
Beautiful to watch and entertaining

Negative Product Points

My unit is copper plated and needs to be cleaned if you like shiny copper. I don't mind the "old" look and do not polish at all.
The sticker "Royal" on the wooden base looks cheap and should be made from copper or someting more fancy.

Detailed Commentary

Easy to use and easy to clean. I just put water into the vessel and shake it well to clean the inside. Just dry on the outside.
Use hot water in copper vessel to brew coffee. Cold water would take too long to heat with the alcohol burner.
Glass pot fragile, be careful not to bump.
Best to brew full pots for best quality. Partial pots seem not to work so well.
One needs to experience in quantity of coffee to use.
Depending on kind of coffee and type of brew. (Mocca coffee versus regular brew)
Handy carrying handle to move the pot and contents to the dining or coffee table.

Buying Experience

Excellent packing and shipping. Package arrived in very good condition. Price was ok for the workmanship.
