CoffeeGeek - Capresso MT 500 - Kenny Catbox's Review


So this is #1 in my quest for the best drip coffee out there. (See my #2 review of Zojiroshi Fresh Brew.)

NOTE: THIS REVIEW IS FOR THE MT-600, THE UPDATED VERSION OF THE MT-500 ; Fast hot coffee ; Attractive, quiet machine

Expensive ; Mediocre coffee doesn't justify price ; Poor (non-existent) spray arm

CoffeeGeek - Capresso MT 500 - Sam Graves's Review


I found myself in trouble when pressing the brew button on my trusty Mr. Coffee 12 Cup machine resulted in no gurgle, steam, or brew. I quickly triaged to a single cup French Press nearby to get me through the door until I could get to work to make a...

The MT500 is basic in function and rich in quality. Exactly what you should expect from a solid drip coffee maker. This makes great coffee in a short amount of time and the carafe keeps it hot and prevents the coffee from being boiled and burned on a...

Yes, the large flip top lid does require you to pull the machine out from under the counter to fill it with coffee and water. It's not a big deal to me, but apparently it bothers some people. I've seen counter top slide bases online that serve as a...

This is a drip coffeemaker and is the best one I have ever owned! I love the coffee it brews for my Daily Grind!


I purchased this coffee maker because of the Coffeegeek, first impression, and I also took to heart the other two reviews on this site. I can say that there were no surprises in the purchase nor operation of the unit. I enjoy reviews which tell it like...

The product comes packaged well. It is built solidly. It really is aesthetically appealing. It is easy to keep clean. It is very easy to fill with coffee. It is very easy to use

It is a bit on the expensive side. Pouring water into the machine requires some care as the receptacle is narrow and one can easily miss the target. DO NOT OVERFILL THE 10 CUP CAPACITY MARK or you will overflow the carafe and make a mess. The lid on...

It's like a bad love affair; I want so much to love it, but I want more to smash it with a hammer.


Here is a copy of the letter I sent to the company:

Coffee is delicious; love to look at it. Has a timer. Love a thermal carafe

It floods once a month. Coffee everywhere

Capresso should only be considered by masochists, if a user, sadists if gifting


I received this coffee maker as a gift, sent to me in the US Virgin Islands. They offered to replace the unit, but I had to return the defective unit first to them and they would then only ship to an address within the 50 states, not the US Virgin...

Looks nice, coffee comes out hot, thermal carafe holds heat well

The base of the unit leaks. Capresso service is very poor
