Bottom Line: If you can't justify paying for the ultimate drip maker, the Braun  will do the trick without draining the budget. Spend whatever's left on a good grinder and great locally fresh roasted coffee.
Positive Product Points

Hot tasty coffee in a reasonable amount of time, low initiation cost.... what else is there to say?

Negative Product Points

Somewhat lightweight,  brewing temps not quite up to standards but darn close.

Detailed Commentary

Having been away from the coffee scene for some 10 years, the wife and I got hooked on coffee once again during our first holliday  in 10 years. I guess I needed the caffine boost driving from Winnipeg to Victoria  and back. Anyway, we decided to get a new coffee maker and purchased a B&D figuring they're all the same.... well, they're not.  Tepid coffee does little for me or the wife so we were soon looking for a new machine... enter the Braun KF180  flavour select. Having done some light research on the net, I came to the conclusion that the Braun was the only locally available choice that would work for us and so I picked one up from our local Canadian Tire outlet.  I wasn't dissapointed,  we were soon enjoying hot tasty coffee from our Braun coffeemaker. Today, if I had to do it again I would probably chose a Technivorm from Boyd's coffee but if the bucks are tight, I'd still go for the Braun. We're happy with the Braun after 3 months... I just did a test using a manual Melitta cone filter and my hot water kettle vs the Braun and I couldn't really tell any difference between the two so while the Braun may brew at slighty lower temps than recomended, it's close enough for me and the wife.

Buying Experience

For us Canadians, Ye Old Canadian Tire is a great standby.... no probs.
