Delonghi 12-cup Coffee Maker with Front Access


What makes this DeLonghi special is the easy access to the carafe and filter from the front of the machine. This means you don’t have to move it to the front of the counter when you’re setting it up with coffee and water and are less likely...

solid device

Simple to use

the "clean" fuction keeps flashing.... no big deal but this thing requires many cleanings ; That beinng said - we had it for 2 years... 2-4 pots of coffee/day, 6 days per week, 365 days/year... so 2k pot of coffee later = a good product

LOVE this coffee maker !


Love this coffee maker. The under the counter design is perfect. No messy spills and no moving the entire coffee maker every morning to make coffee ! Love the stylish design as well.

Style & function at a great price

Takes a while to brew when you use the "aroma" setting

No Filters Needed


I bought it to take in my RV because it does not need filters. One less thing to buy when we go camping.

Easy to pour the water into without opening a lid on top
