Bottom Line: If you remember to get medium grind it will work like a charm!!!!
Positive Product Points

It looks like a cool stainless steel space ship, and yes it brews coffee as well. I like the innovative features, like the timer that tells you how old my coffee is (it starts when you are done brewing), the built in brewing timer that is very easy to use. Now about the coffee, I think it brews great drip, the stainless steel reusable filter lasted I had for six months is still going strong, so I am pretty happy overall.

Negative Product Points

The occasional brew on my desk. Now that is a problem!!! I have also figured out what causes it! If you get coffee that is grinded to coarse, the coffee flow trough the filter into the "funnel" will be to quick. The little "valve" on the tip of the funnel will have the coffee streaming (instead of dripping) and -now I will spare you form my fluid dynamics lesson here- will "stick" to the valve body which routes it over the rim of you cup into the tray of the cup that will overflow onto your desk.... STARBUCKS please fix the valve design!!!!
The simple fix is to get a finer grind of coffee.
