Bottom Line: Great coffee but requires more coffee and work
Positive Product Points

Brews a great pot of coffee.

Negative Product Points

I seem to use more coffee to create as many cups. Requires extensive cleaning.  Unable to make less than 6cups of coffee.

Detailed Commentary

I believe that this makes the best coffee I have ever made.  It does use about 50% more coffee to make smaller batches than typical drip coffee makers.  It does also require a rather coarse grind of coffee.  I have to use an old hand grinder to get the proper grind.  I found that the typical blade grinder resulted in too much sedimentation in the coffee.
I typically make 6 or 8 cups of coffee.  There is no way to make 4cups even though the pot has a been labled that way.  I have recently found that Bodum has made a smaller version of the pot.  I have not used it but frankly it would still require as much cleaning.

Buying Experience

Amazing Sale at Starbucks dropped the price to 90$
