10 Cup Thermal Melitta Coffee Brewer – 46894A

Next time you say, “Let’s go get coffee,” think twice about rushing out to the coffeehouse, local shop or drive-thru to purchase some coffee and guzzling it down. Creating the perfect cup is something special to be savored. Something delightfully indulgent and memorable, something that evokes every sentiment of an authentic European café. That’s the promise of Melitta. Intelligent design, detailed craftsmanship, full-bodied flavor and a sensuous experience in every sip.


Product Feature Benefits
  • 10 cup vacuum-sealed, thermal carafe with thumb-activated pouring (no need to twist the lid)
  • Choose among regular, bold and robust settings for complete control over your coffee’s taste
  • Cone-shaped filter basket swings out for easy access and offers optimal coffee extraction
  • Programmable to let you brew coffee automatically in the morning
  • Pause & serve feature lets you pour a cup before coffee is finished brewing
  • Dimensions: 9.5”W – 12”D – 11.5”H
Take the next step in your pursuit of the perfect cup

The 10 cup Melitta Brewer brews with a drip machine that brews into a cone-shaped filter for better extraction and offers you control over the strength of your coffee. The Melitta Coffee Brewer knows how to make the most of your favorite ground coffee, from brewing it at a hot temperature to offering you the ability to wake up to a hot pot of coffee that’s ready to pour. If you’re dedicated to great-tasting coffee, choose the Melitta model with the carafe that fits your needs best: traditional glass with an adjustable-temperature heating plate or a thermal version that holds in heat without the need for a heating plate. See for yourself what coffee lovers are saying about the noticeable improvement in their coffee enjoyment experience. Melitta will bring hundreds of years of European culture, refined craftsmanship and rich indulgence to life, right inside your cup.

Choosing Your Brewing Strength: Melitta Coffee Brewers offer the choice of regular, bold and robust brewing strengths. It’s not difficult to decide which setting is right for you. If you typically purchase coffee described as, “bright, breakfast blend or mildly flavored,” and are not fond of espresso, your taste buds will be more at home with the REGULAR setting. If, on the other hand, you are drawn to dark, oily coffee beans at the store and look for coffee adjectives such as “bold, deep or rich,” choose the BOLD or ROBUST brewing setting.

Making Iced Coffee

In addition to brewing hot coffee, the Melitta 10 Cup Thermal Coffee Brewer is perfect for making iced coffee. Try some the next time you need a refreshing pick-me-up on a hot day or to energize yourself before a project. To make iced coffee, fill the reservoir with water to the 5-cup mark and fill the thermal carafe with ice to just below the rim. After that, simply brew double-strength coffee. After brewing, pour the iced coffee into a glass filled with ice and add your favorite sweetener or cream.

Care and Cleaning: Regular cleaning of the Melitta Coffee Brewer will help extend its life by removing hard water deposits that may be present in the tap water. You can choose to clean your brewer with inexpensive vinegar or purchase a coffee machine cleaner. Cleaning the coffee brewer regularly may seem like extra work, but you’ll find that the improvement in taste is well worth it.

This coffee maker looks great and makes a good cup of coffee.
S. Cole
After brewing, water is retained in the top of the coffee pot lid, so that's another leak when you go to clean the pot.
duff
Once the coffee is in the thermal carafe it stays hot for hours so there is no need to keep the plate hot.

As a person who considers himself a bit of a coffee connoisseur, I would like to shed some light on criticisms I found to be consistent amongst the less glowing reviews. I think some people who purchased this machine are a bit unfamiliar with the advantages versus traditional (glass carafe) brewers. They are mistaking some of the positives for negatives. I hope this helps current and potential buyers, as for the price (or even for more money) you'd be hard-pressed to find anything better. Allow me to explain...

STAINLESS STEEL CARAFE: A double insulated carafe (as found on the Melitta) serves to keep the coffee warm without a warming plate following the brewing cycle. Though the coffee does lose heat over time, you will not lose any taste. Glass carafes require a warming plate that keeps coffee at a consistent temperature by essentially cooking it. In other words, your coffee will taste horrible not long after the brewing cycle has finished. Imagine keeping your coffee on a low-flame stove burner all morning!

COFFEE TEMPERATURE: There is an accepted optimal brewing temperature for coffee of between 195-205°F. The Melitta is designed with this in mind. Other coffee makers are not. If you brew coffee at too high a temperature, you cook and over-extract the grinds. This results in a bitter taste.

FILTER BASKET: This is a cone-shaped basket instead of the more common flat-bottomed basket. The cone shape allows the water to contact the grounds for longer and create a fuller brew. Also, it is highly advisable to use unbleached paper filters versus reusable mesh ones. The paper filters absorb much of the acidity resulting in a smoother tasting coffee. Having used the permanent gold-tone filters in the past, I can say from experience they simply don't work as well.

YES YES YES! Finally a working coffee pot that wasn't designed/built by total morons!

A coffee maker should do the following:
1. Make coffee into a pot (not on the counter)
2. Make hot coffee (listen up mr coffee!)
3. Actually pour coffee out of the carafe! (again something mt coffee hasn't figured out)
4. Actually brew the entire filters worth of grinds and not just part of the grinds
5. Not cost an Arm and a leg.... It's a simple appliance

After going through 6 different coffee makers from 4 different mfg's I finally found one that meets my extremely picky 5 requirements (sarcasm) this maker is the ONLY one that does!

If you are reading these reviews on coffee makers you, like me, are amazed at how nearly every maker has very mixed reviews. Why can't a good standard coffee maker be made? My first drip coffee maker lasted 15 years, my second about 8 years but after reading many of the reviews, it appears it's now common for makers to only last 2-3 years! I do like to grind my own beans and my previous coffee maker was a Melitta but it was mediocre in grinding and started to leak at the end of its 8 years. I decided this medium priced coffee maker without a coffee grinder was a good compromise on price and functionality. I have been using it for a month now and have been very impressed. The cone filters do give a better brew but only if you get coffee that is medium fine ground, many commercial coffees are coarse ground.

Melitta also makes some coffee and I have found their Vienna Roast to be particularly good. I do believe that the setting on the machine allowing you to make stronger or weaker brews does work. It basically does a slower cycle if you want stronger coffee but again make sure you have medium fine ground coffee to make this work for you. For those of you who are fanatics about hot coffee, it stays plenty hot on the warmer, I had to actually change my setting to a cooler setting. My only criticism is the basket handle must be up when you insert it into the maker. Once you hear the basket snap then you fold down the handle. It took me several days to figure out why I was having difficulty with the basket. I would have given 5 stars had this feature worked better, but not a problem once you understand how to insert it correctly.

So after my frustration at researching coffee makers I am very happy with this one.

UPDATE: I'm updating the review just to reinforce its pros and add another. After 4 months, it's working like a champ(as expected). I'd like to add another pro: Sometimes when I pour the coffee too quickly, the coffee overcomes the spout and coffee drips along the carafe's wall on to the table - especially when the carafe is full. I always have to be careful not to pour it too quickly. However the spout on this carafe is made such that it prevents over-spill. I love it.

Original review:

I usually brew my coffee with Bialetti 6800 Moka Express 6-Cup Stovetop Espresso Maker with whole coffee beans ground by Bodum Bistro Electric Burr Coffee Grinder, Black. However, when we have guests, we need a regular coffee maker: I can't brew enough coffee with Moka Express without running it 2-4 times and that just simply takes too long.

We used to have a braun coffee maker with served us well. When it started leaking, we had to look for an alternative. I was not too impressed with any of the cuisinarts and finally trimmed my selection down to this and Zojirushi coffee makers. While trying to decide, Woot.com had a Wolfgang Puck coffee maker on sale and I pulled the trigger. I shouldn't have. When it arrived, I was let down by cheap-feeling plastics and "metals". The carafe had to be inserted with pressure and just right position to avoid spills. I had to send it back.
