Very stylish machine, well worth the price with the stainless steel carafe. Makes hot delicious coffee. Would buy again.
Positive Product Points
Pros- brews at 190 degrees or better, stainless steel carafe, easy to use programming.
Negative Product Points
Heavy, hard to slide back out of the way you need to lift if off counter to move it.
This coffee maker was purchased at Starbucks. I do believe that they have the exclusive use of the stainless steel carafe.
comes with a 3 year warranty.
Maker brews at approximately 190 degrees, has a heavy stainless steel no drip carafe. Body is made of metal and is very heavy for coffee maker.
Coffee it makes so far has been very very good. Carafe if pre heated with hot water seems to hold temperature pretty well for 2-3 hours. So far no complaints brews a very nice hot cup of coffee, and I like my coffee hot. so for an off the shelf maker it brews hot enough for me in lieu of buying a $200 machine.
Will update if any problems
Very good, starbucks gives you a pound of coffee of your choice with a coffee maker, so that offsets the price by 10-12 dollars. and they seem to stand behind what they sell, no questions asked returns.
Three Month Followup
Still brewing good hot coffee, some water from condensation drips on plate, carafe when preheated keeps coffee hot for at least 1 hour, we seldom have any left after 1 hour.
