Negative Product Points

Hard to read water level

Detailed Commentary

This is a great easy machine to use, however you must understand how it works:
The # of cups selected is actually  the grind time/quantity of coffee to the brew basket.
The 2-4 switch provides a slightly warmer water temp for small batches (to compensate for the fast temp drop in the basket). As the # cups goes up, the machine becomes more efficient.
My coffee of choice is a very dark and very oily bean. I use the fine grind setting, Capresso  recommends not to use this setting on such beans, however I use the machine every day, and have not had a problem.

To make a great strong cup of coffee:

For 1 mug - just under 2 cups of cold water, set the grind to fine, select "6" cups, select strong coffee, select 2-4 "on" & GO!

For 2 mugs - just under 4 cups of cold water, set the grind to fine, select "10" cups, select strong coffee, select 2-4 "on" & GO!

For Full pot - 1 coffee pot of cold water, set the grind to fine, select "10" cups, select strong coffee, select 2-4 "OFF" & GO! (This pot will not be as strong, but not by much!)

Buying Experience

Great!

Three Month Followup

Still a great machine. I have found that if you use oily beans, you must clean & wipe down the inside of the bean hopper about once a month so that the beans slide freely into the grinder.
