way, way to many steps to just get coffee! pooring coffee without spilling near imposible pot stains counter after pooring there is always an extra peace of the thing on the counter
OK, I've given the thing a good try! When i was looking for a new coffee machine i read all kinds of reviews and everyone who had this moccamaster seamed to say all kinds of great things about it, well I'm here to give you the other side! I would think for a 300 dollar coffee maker that seams to have been around for a long time that they would have figured out how to make the thing poor coffee! The best that i've been able to do is first crack the top about 90 degrees, any more and the coffee poors out over about 2 1/2" area and unless your pooring into a trof its clean up time, and you had better be a pashent person as well, and its lucky that it does make good hot coffee becouse by the time you have your cup full by dribbiling it out of the pot for what seems like forever hot coffee is a distant memory! I`m not done, then you set the pot on the counter and any coffee left on the top, which there is always a little, goes between the pot and the handel and leaks out what looks like roofing tar down the side of the pot! To start making coffee you need to asemble the four tops, one pot and one coffee hopper all first thing in the morning, call me lazy (as well as a pathedic speller) if you like but I`m more of a poor and go sort of guy at 6 am and dont care to try to asemble what seems to be a rubix cube before i have my morning Joe! I``ve had it! I just ordered a new Bunn, like the resterants use and am counting the days until I can find somebody I don`t like much to give this thing to!
I walked into a store that said they handeled this product, the people were nice and i had a good buying exsperiance, i just wish the brewing exsperiance was as good!
