I'll start with the pros and cons:
-Good looking coffee maker, the photos really don't do it justice compared to how it looks in person
-Not having to fill the water reservoir is a huge time saver
-Super easy to clean
-Great carafe. It pours perfectly (except the last half cup, see cons). Has a trigger to start and stop the flow of coffee. The inside is stainless steel, not glass like some carafes, so it should last more or less forever.
-Water is heated to The National Coffee Association's recommended temperature of between 195 and 205 degrees
-There is no heating element to cook your coffee after it's already brewed
-Fast brew time (7 minutes for a full pot)
-Uses a shower head to spray water on all of the grounds, rather than just the center of them
-According the the manufacturer the machine is built to withstand commercial use and is marketed to offices and such
-There is no heating element. This is was a pro because it makes for better tasting coffee but also a con because there is only so long the coffee can realistically stay hot in a thermal carafe. It's a trade off but definitely worth it to me to have the better tasting coffee
-A little hard to get the last half cup or so out of the carafe. You have to turn it almost upside down to do it. This is because the walls curve up and in so it has to make it over the top inward curve. I assume that the reason for this is to make as much of the carafe thermally insulated with a vacuum seal as possible. The lid doesn't (and physically couldn't) have a vacuum seal, so while this is a small con, again seems worth the trade off to have coffee that stays hotter longer.
When I got the machine I measured some of the temperatures. The water coming out of the shower head is 195 degrees. By the time it gets through the grounds and in to the carafe a newly brewed full pot of coffee is 177 degrees. 2 hours later, the temperature in the carafe is 157 degrees (that's with several cups being removed by that point as well).
2-3 seems to be about the cut off to where the coffee is a little too cold to drink. If I still want coffee after that, I throw it in the microwave for 30 seconds or so. It's not ideal, but it's better than no coffee and I'd rather have to maybe cook a cup of coffee or two then have the whole pot cooking all the time.
The brew basket pops out and is a simple plastic bucket with a hole in the bottom that has a stopper valve thing for the coffee to come out of. The carafe is stainless steel on the inside and the lid is plastic with a channel that goes through it for the coffee to flow. I just rinse all these items every morning and wash them with soap once a week. Rinsing takes around a minute total.
One tip I found is to take the basket out first. A small amount of water condenses around the top of the basket and you get a few drips when the basket comes off. If the carafe is in there, they just go in to the carafe and there is no mess. It doesn't continually drip, only immediately as you take it out. If you do drip on the inside, it's all a smooth surface and very easy to clean.
Hooking up the water line:
The coffee maker comes with a little quick connect "T" fitting for a refrigerator water line as well as some extra hose. To use this, you turn off the water supply to the fridge, cut the line, push the pieces into the T fitting and push the extra line they supplied into the third end of the T. You then plug this line into the coffee maker and you are done. Very easy and just takes a few minutes. Other than scissors, no tools are required.
It also comes with an adapter to use for a regular sink water line. This looks easy to use, but I didn't hook mine up this way so I really can't comment.
Single cup feature:
There is a second basket for single cups. It takes a cone style filter, where the regular basket takes a standard type filter. Seems pretty straightforward, but I haven't ever used the single cup feature.
All in all, this is a fantastic coffee maker. Now that I've gotten used to the convenience of not having to fill up a water reservoir, I don't think I could ever go back. While the machine is a little pricey, the convenience and the manufacturer's claims of commercial build quality (assuming they are true), make it worth the extra money.
Love the coffee pot. It makes clean up much easier. Carafe will hold a decent temp for hours. If you like scalding hot coffee, this isn't for you, but it does help with that burnt taste from pots that sit on a heating element.
Installation was NOT as easy as the company indicates. Their video shows a woman grabbing a water line, cutting and sticking the splitter in. Voila! All done. In truth, my fridge, an LG, has a water line attached to the back. I made the stupid mistake of cutting that. The line looked the same size, but it wasn't. Run to hardware store to fix that. Line higher up - going into the ice maker is a 1/4" line. Cut that and use the splitter. Looks good ...but not working. Why? The water valve is located at the base of the fridge, where the line goes into the unit. Back to hardware store. Solution was to split off at the fridge water line at the wall. This required a different braided hose to connect to the fridge and a 1/4" splitter for the coffee pot.
Ridiculous installation, but it works now.
Overall -love the coffee pot now that it's installed. However, be aware of how your fridge works before cutting any lines. I now have two patch jobs on my $4,000 fridge.
Also the unit has two different attachments. There is a basket attachment you put into the unit for a pot of coffee, and there is a cone shaped attachment that you need to put in for a cup of hot water. The pot does not fit with the cone shaped attachment. Not a big deal, but you do need to store it when not using it.
Easy to hook up, the instructions included are complete and easy to follow.
I did use with a 3M Filtrete water filter and made a trip to the hardware store to pick up adapters for the larger water line the filter unit used.
Operation is simple. Easily select 1c, 1/2 carafe, or full carafe and with the touch of a button you are off brewing.
I will say coffee does cool down a bit quicker than I expected. My solution is to just brew 1/2 carafe at a time so the coffee is always fresh.
The timer is great to have hot coffee ready when you wake up on those mornings where you will be short on time.
The pour and serve feature works excellent and pauses the brewing until the carafe is placed back in.
Even though the unit is at a premium price point, I am very happy with my purchase.
