Re the carafe, I found a PDF on their website explaining how to use the carafe (pretty bad when one needs a tutorial on carafe-pouring). But I found there is a (nearly invisible) dot that needs to be lined up with the pour spout. Re the filter, I had to call Customer Service and have someone explain what isn't clear in the manual. (The rod thingie actually comes apart; put the filter in the rod, and insert the whole thing into the machine - the rod stays in the water reservoir along with the filter).
And I think it makes good coffee.
My original review was:
The carafe is poorly designed. If you loosen the lid a bit to pour, it barely drips out. If you then loosen it a bit more, it pours out the sides and runs down the carafe onto the counter. So it's either mopping up the dribbles, or take the whole top off the carafe to pour.
Also, the filter that seemed to be such a plus - it constantly gets dislodged from its slot. We've re-seated it repeatedly. Worthless.
The coffee tastes fine, but not good enough to justify the frustrations with this product.
I would absolutely NOT buy this again. I don't want to bother returning it (shipping etc) but it's a DAILY irritation.
Design is very attractive. I love that you can see the amount of water you pour in since the indicator is see-thru. The black and stainless steel look goes with my other appliances so that's always a plus.
Have always used a KRUPS coffee maker but now wanted to try one with an insulated (not glass) carafe. The equivalent KRUPS brand to the Capresso was too expensive so I opted for this one. So far I'm satisfied. Hopefully it'll last.
I had to switch from the 'gold' filter that came with the machine to paper filters because the gold filter allowed a sludge to form in the carafe.
Another problem I had is with the option to make a smaller quantity of coffee using the 3-5 cup button. If the tank is filled or has more than 3-5 cups of water, the machines just filters whatever quantity is in the tank. It is a fake button. If you want 3-5 cups of coffee you have to put only 3-5 cups of water in the tank.
One of the reasons for selecting this machine was the several positive comments from previous purchasers about the taste of the coffee. I had to run at least 4 pots of coffee before the plastic taste disappeared. Having done all that, the taste of the resulting coffee is good. I will probably have to transfer the pot of coffee to a better thermal carafe after it is brewed to keep it hot.
Overall, the purchase was a disappointment.
I had several KRUPS thermal coffee makers for many years, but they never seemed to brew hot enough. With that one exception, they were great machines. The CAPRESSO not only seems to brew at an adequate temperature, but has done so consistently now for three years.
The PRO about thermals is that my coffee doesn't sit on a burner cooking all day. The CON is that it's only piping hot when freshly brewed. For me this is perfect. I simply grab a cup throughout the day and microwave it. The first cup is as good as the last.
I'm NEUTRAL about the programability, since I've never used this feature.
As for the design itself, the biggest CON (which was mentioned in reviews before I purchased it) is the pour spout. Filling the resevoir is awkward at best, but I always have to lay out a towel first, since generally a considerable amount of water pours down the side of the pot. As with most coffee makers that reside under a kitchen cabinet, to fill the resevoir requires that you pull the coffee maker out to fill it. I've simplified this by placing mine on a tray that can easily slide on my counter.
The overall design is very attractive, and looks like the quality of product that it's proven to be. Removing the resevoir lid for cleaning is a bit cumbersome, but happily it doesn't need to be done very often.
