From the manufacturer
Welcome the latest innovation from the BrewStation line- the BrewStation 12 Cup Dispensing Coffeemaker with Removable Reservoir. In addition to eliminating the breakable glass carafe, the BrewStation Dispensing Coffeemaker with Removable Reservoir simplifies another messy chore: filling the water reservoir. Instead of opening the top of the coffeemaker and pouring in water, which typically involves pulling the coffeemaker forward for better reach, this coffeemaker is equipped with a removable side reservoir that lifts off for easy filling at the sink. The BrewStation Coffeemaker with Removable Reservoir means no pouring and no spilling. There’s no need to use either a carafe or a pitcher for messy filling because the water reservoir removes from the side of the unit, allowing for fast, easy access. This cleverly designed reservoir holds enough water to brew multiple cups and is equipped with a water level indicator for filling smaller amounts as well.
This new model of coffee-dispensing convenience by Hamilton Beach, the brand that invented the original 'coffeemaker without a carafe,' is the latest in a long line of innovative products. Earning high praise since its debut, the dispensing coffeemaker concept changed the way people enjoy coffee. A quick push of the dispenser bar and coffee is dispensed right into the cup; no breakable glass carafe or messy pouring to contend with. Inside each BrewStation tank, a gentle heater maintains the coffee’s temperature without scorching the flavor. From top to bottom, every coffeemaker in the BrewStation line delivers the innovation and convenience that coffee drinkers and home cooks have come to expect from the Hamilton Beach brand.
Effortless Brewing and Dispensing: The inventive BrewStation design took coffee from an outside carafe to an enclosed, interior tank, where coffee stays hot and fresh tasting for a long time. You make coffee the way you always have — by adding water, a paper filter and ground coffee. On this model, the removable water reservoir expands the convenience even further by letting you fill up at the sink without messy pouring. Best of all, freshly brewed coffee is easily dispensed on cup-at a time by pressing your cup against the dispenser bar for the world’s easiest fill-up.
Brewing Boldly: Do you love every nuance of coffee’s complex flavor? Do you grind — or even roast — your own beans because you enjoy the difference in freshness? Or if your schedule doesn’t allow for such an indulgence, do you satisfy your cravings by purchasing coffee that was recently roasted? Then try going bold. Before you start brewing, select the 'bold' option to allow more time for water to saturate the grounds and fully extract your coffee’s rich flavor. The bold setting will require additional time to complete a brewing cycle. But if you want a bolder tasting cup of coffee, the extra few seconds of brewing time are worth the wait.
Brewing Iced Coffee: Want delicious iced coffee without having to pay at an expensive coffeehouse or have an inconsistent coffee from the drive-through? Then try the 'Iced Coffee' setting. It’s easy to do. Just fill the reservoir up to the 6-cup line and fill the coffee tank with ice no more than the 10-cup line. Then brew your coffee double-strength. Dispense your delicious iced coffee right into your cup or pitcher, stir in sweetener or flavorings, and add ice.
Tips & Care
Before first use, wash the coffee tank, filter basket and drip tray in hot, soapy water. Never put the coffee tank or removable reservoir in the dishwasher. Use coffeemaker cleaner monthly (once a week in areas with hard water) to prevent deposits that adversely affect coffeemaker performance and can decrease the life of your appliance.

Besides eliminating the need to pour coffee from a carafe, the BrewStation Dispensing Coffeemaker with Removable Reservoir simplifies another messy chore: filling the water reservoir. Instead of opening the top of the coffeemaker and pouring in water, which typically involves pulling the coffeemaker forward for better reach, this coffeemaker is equipped with a removable side reservoir that lifts off for easy filling at the sink . Troubleshooting : Coffee brews slowly - Excessive amounts of coffee grounds and coffee is ground too finely and yet the coffee grinder is put to automatic drip grind and there is more than one paper filter in filter basket or poor quality paper filter or wrong size paper filter . Coffee overflows basket - Coffeemaker needs cleaning the coffeemaker should be cleaned at least every 30 days to maintain proper performance and press BREW OPTIONS button until no lights appear . Coffee tastes bad - Coffee-to-water ratio unbalanced and so adjust for personal preference or poor water quality for which use a water filter or bottled water to make coffee and for iced coffee, too much ice in tank causing too long extraction time for grounds and make sure ice is not above the 10-cup marking line . Coffee leaks from dispenser - Coffee grounds trapped in coffee tank dispensing mechanism under seal in coffee tank.

Keeping it clean is just a little easier than the carafe dripmakers I have owned. That is because it is much easier to clean the water reservoir than in most conventional dripmakers. Technically the urn and filter basket are stacked on top of the reservoir in the base. Since the coffee urn is removable, the reservoir is completely accessible for cleaning. As with all dripmakers you still need to perform the vinegar ritual to remove scale from the elements, but at least you can keep the reservoir quite clean from accumulating residue.
All in all, it makes a pretty good cup of coffee. I set it up at night and program it to brew before I get up in the morning. Since it can keep the coffee warm for up to 4 hours, I normally brew about 6 to 8 cups and hit on it throughout the day. I know that's a mortal sin for coffee aficionados and snobs, but then I doubt they would even look at coffeemakers like these.
BUT- this model is much improved! Those two issues are gone. As far as others here saying it won't dispense with thick cups....not sure what they heck they are filling...maybe a stone chiseled mug with 2 inch rim thickness...I don't know. I have no issues with normal "thick rim mugs" with my unit. See my picture of it pouring into my thick mug. The spout output is at least 1 inch from the button. If your mug does not clear, you need another mug. No condensation at all on my unit either. They have put in two fixes with a much improved catch ramp built into the coffee filter holder and the area at the top back at the lid hinge now allows the condensation to drip directly into the water well where you pour the water. Problems solved!
I think competitors write bogus reviews to scare people into not buying the product. Don't listen to it. This is the new and improved version! It's narrower, more compact, has a bold setting and does not drip lid condensation into the drip tray like the old one did. This one rocks!
The only thing that's nit picky is filling it with water. Using the coffee carafe you need to rinse it well first. Or, you need another container marked at 12 cups to use to fill it with each time. Other than that, perfection with this version.

I will say this to its defense though: it does make a good cup of coffee and keeps it nice and warm which is what it says it does I suppose. I just wish it was better built.
One draw back is you have to push the cup against the switch in order to dispense coffee. I often have to hold down the machine so that it doesn't shift back on the counter. You can probably fix that by cutting a piece of rubber pad, the kind you find in hardware stores to keep tools in place inside drawers.
We are sending it back for exchange as we like the ability to fill a cup of coffee without having to handle a carafe.
Good brewing options
Like the pot free design
Pain in in the butt to fill, side tank version would be better
This unit still uses a hot plate to keep coffee warm.
Keeps it hot and tasting better then a traditional coffee pot for an hour max. After that it has the same burnt taste as your cheap coffee pot. If the tank was insulated, it would be an epic coffee pt and worth double.
If you want a good coffeemaker that keeps the coffee tasting the same after hours, buy one with an insulated carafe.
I like the lack of a carafe. The internal heating element keeps the coffee piping hot for up to four hours without it affecting the taste. I've used the regular brewing setting and the 1-4 cups and have no issues with either. The only issue I've had with the machine is that I wasn't 100% sure where to fill to in the reservoir - was I filling to the bottom of the number or covering it with water? If you want to make six cups of coffee, fill the reservoir with water until it fully covers the 6 measure and is just touching the bottom of the next measure. If you overfill the reservoir past the 12 cup mark, there is an overflow drain at the back of the machine - you do risk flooding your counter! Just be careful when filling to stop at the 12 cup mark. Cleaning the machine is straightforward both for daily use and as regular maintenance (I ran the regular cleaning cycle before the first use) and just requires vinegar and regular dish soap and water.
This gets an A+ from a chronically tired and sleep-deprived university student.
You're better off with a machine with a separate water tank instead of this as you will likely end up replacing it.
programmer works perfectly
Easier to fill than previous model
CON: Pricey for a coffee maker that doesn't even keep coffee warm
Keep Warm scalds the coffee -- useless
Keep Warm is very noisy
Pour valve leaks
Drip tray holds very little spillage. A big mess with above leaky valve
I have resorted to using the coffee maker (12 cup) with 2 cups. I should have purchased a single serve maker for the same money.
Makes a great cup of coffee
Timer works well
No carafe which is a big plus
When you read the manual, it says "Check for Leaks" but doesn't give any more useful information. You can try to go to Hamilton Beach but I was ignored or couldn't spend time on the phone.
I did fix the unit to stop it leaking. In the reservoir I removed the screen filter by pinching the tab until I could remove it. Then I moved the washer until I found a spot that it didn't leak. Been working fine for a few weeks now. If it leaks again I'll edit the review appropriately.
