Coffe can be yucky. Plastic tasting No way to properly mesaure coffee to water.
This was the first coffee maker I did research to buy and I think Consumer Reports gave it a good rating. It was also the most money I spent on a coffe maker. Overall, I liked it.
It's easy to use, but measuring the correct amount of grind to coffee is nearly impossible. The variety of flavor from weak to strong is hit or miss. Can be very acidic or bland. Not really sure what I'll get tomorrow morning???
I'm not afraid to spend a few dollars on a great coffe maker since it's something I enjoy every day - just not this one.
I'm the kind of person that does a lot of research to hopefully get the right product, and my ability to learn more always surprises me.
