The coffee maker is great for brewing a perfect cup of hot coffee every time. This coffeemaker is on the high end of the coffee maker price spectrum. Consumers get an 8-cup coffee maker for over $100. Consumer can find the coffee maker for under $55 when shopping around on some sites. There are no fancy grinders, digital timers, or thermal carafes. You do get a great quality name in coffee makers and a great coffeemaker.

The coffeemaker has a low pressure brewing system that preserves the rich coffee flavor, which allows for the absolute minimum bitterness. The machine uses only half the amount of coffee as traditional coffee makers and makes a richer cup of coffee. Again, the price is not cheap, but if users only brew a moderate amount of coffee, this is the perfect machine, and it lasts a long time.

The coffee maker uses the coffee filters made by the manufacturer. Consumers must know about this added expense before purchasing this product. The filters provide heavy-duty support, but users can substitute. Try using 2 standard 3.5-inch disks from just about any supermarket. Offset the disks slightly to cover the basket, and consumers get a great cup of coffee with no grinds in the coffee. The results are the same as when using the Krup filters.

The coffee maker brews slower than most machines but preserves the flavor of the coffee. On those days when time is of the essence, hot tap water may be poured directly into the brew chamber instead of cold water. The taste is still as wonderful, and the coffee brews in half the time.

The machine only comes with an on/off switch, but it is user friendly. The coffee maker is easy to fill and measure water. The handle is comfortable and easy to pour. The filter and coffee maker are both dishwasher safe. The machine is extremely safe since there is no heat plate. The coffee and the consumer have added protection with this feature. The coffee may need transporting to a carafe to maintain the warmth and flavor of the coffee.

This is a great buy for those who value quality in their coffee and coffee maker. The coffee maker is a little pricey. A cheaper price is available when shopping around online. This is not the right product for someone who wants a fresh cup of coffee available all day long.
