Perfect for families with 1 coffee drinker,
This review is from: Mr. Coffee DRX5 4-Cup Programmable Coffeemaker, Black (Kitchen)
We all know that too much coffee is terrible for the body in several ways. So, instead of using the 12-cup coffee maker, we decided to go with a smaller one - to force me to drink less coffee. I love this product for a number of reasons.
- Perfect size for a single coffee drinker.
- Timer is great. Every other 4-cup maker that I found were switch based without a timer setting. Timer settings are really helpful when you want to just get your coffee and go.
- Easy to clean. This product has a removeable filter cup for easy cleaning. Also, the auto-pause in brewing is helpful to both allow for quick removal and less spilling.
- It takes a little longer to brew 4 cups with this maker as it does in a larger maker. This may simply be due to the size of the product.
- I really like this product. It makes coffee perfectly. It is compact and takes up very little space. It is perfect for my coffee needs.

Nice review, but the latest medical research shows that drinking lots of coffee is more beneficial than not doing so. There is no research showing that it does "terrible things" at all. Again, nice review of the coffee maker, I just do not agree with your opening stsatement.

Yep, the research consistently shows that coffee is good for you. Helps prevent all sorts of health problems like (provided you don't add the cream). It reduces diabetes risk by 54% and Alzheimer's by 80%. So drink up, buy the bigger coffee maker!

I got involved with coffee research back in 1983. I figured there's probably some harm considering regular caffeine and so forth, but none of the research we did ever found anything bad, with the possible exception of decaf. "Possible" means we hadn't found anything conclusive. Since then, I've been following the work of the physician in charge, who has probably been involved in this field for 30 years or more. Not only did he fail to find anything harmful, he actually found that coffee drinkers were at lower risk for certain problems. I haven't read the recent studies, and haven't been personally involved in decades so I can't comment on the specific numbers. But I'm quite familiar with the data collection process and patient population.

The Mr. Coffee DRX23 is a 12 cup coffee maker, not a 4 cup one.

Actually, Steve, Amazon has both of them in the same listing, with white or black and 12 cup or 4 cup as options you can choose.

I think this coffee maker makes excellent coffee. I've had no problems brewing my Cafe Volio Ground in it.
