There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Installation was doable but required me to visit the hardware store to find the right diameter line tap/valve to tap my fridges water line that is thicker than usable for the parts that came with the brew express but then it worked. It having to futz with water is great. I tapped in past my fridges water filter so water was filtered.
I don't use the smaller single cup basket much as my mugs are often taller and I'm fine making 4 cups In the full size and just microwaving to reheat on subsequent days but if you like the coffee fresh it's a good option.
Design issues do exist. In 201x that this thing has a clock that cannot auto set itself is just inexcusable. Setting the clock is a non trivial thing that will annoy you every time you realize there was a power outage. As you struggle to remember which buttons control clock hours minutes 12/24 mode and the sheer slowness of having to move the clock from minute 31 all the way around the minute 22 ( as always seems to be the case) will have you very frustrated. Come on guys. Put a cell phone/short wave atomic clock radio/ wifi antenna in there and have a way for the thing to get time from one of the host of sources.
Buttons, this bubble foil buttons never stile me as quality. Yeah they provide protection against liquids but are just so cheap. And eventually wear out though if the electronics end up dying every 3 years that won't become a problem. Why there is a big mechanical on/off power button on the front top I find insane, as pressing it is never going to be needed and if you do then you must reset that annoying clock. Imagine a big power off button on the front of your bult in microwave/oven system.
And now that it died an electronics death that brings up the issue of repair. When it goes, as it's a self contained unit (which is needed for compactness for counter installation and a good thing) it means that unlike my amazon echo I cannot just replace the powerfully to this thing at $30 but must replace the whole unit.
It's a good unit with some 1980's design thinking (clock and buttons) and if they ever improve that it would be a 5 star product. In any case, always have a backup coffee solution available. In my case I also have a hand grinder and French press is my backup and can heat water in a kettle.
The unit connects to the water source so all you need to do is load it with coffee and hit the button. The work you save is minimal, but the enjoyment I get from avoiding the fill and pour process is immense.
The coffee itself comes out good and at the right temperature. There is no burner plate, the coffee comes out at temperature into an insulated carafe. I wish there was a way to see how much coffee was left in the carafe, but I don't know how you would do that without sacrificing the insulative properties.
Hookup really was simple. I took the extra step of adding an inline filter and I'm glad I did. I connected behind the fridge and then ran to an inline valve (like $3 at lowes)and then into the filter and from the filter to the coffee maker. That set up gives me an on off valve without having to move the fridge in case anything every leaked. The filter of course makes the coffee taste better too.
The machine runs quickly. It makes abut as much noise as the ice maker when it is drawing water. It brews a pot in 6 minutes.
I bought a refurbished unit and at that price point I find this to be a really great coffee maker and I recommend it.
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.
