Big-time bad design, bad operation, and bad coffee
on June 11, 2015
This product gas some big-time design flaws and it makes lousy coffee.
The water tank holds only three coffees worth of water. The grounds bin, only four..and the bean hopper not much more. So two of you can't get through a breakfast of two longs each without having to fill and empty everything.
The drip tray. My gawd, what were they thinking? It "snaps" in and out really hard, and there are no finger grips. So you end up breaking your fingernails trying to snap it out, and then the foul water dumps on your shoes and the floor. In fact, my wispy little wife can't get it out at all.
Ah, but as long as it brews a great cap, you say. But it does not, not even close. How about a lukewarm cap with no crema? I've messed with the grind, the aroma, different beans, done yoga breathing, nothing can make this awful machine put out a decent cup of anything.
Not even to mention it's a clean freak, always doing a rinse, so half your water is lost. So much for Your Pur filter. And if you go away for the weekend, and come back wanting a cup of coffee first thing in the door (OK, second thing), it will tell you it wants to be primed, which is a multi-step process that wates a full carafe of your filtered water.
Big time ten thumbs down. Yo, you people who gave it five stars, WTF?
