It works


I feel a little cheated and lied to since "3" day Shipping took "4" days. Why not call it 4 day shipping, why lie to customers? I'm not sure this is the first time and I'm not the first customer. I'd like to get 1/4th of my money back for that extra...

It grinds and brews ; Looks elegant ; Like the color scheme

Too many parts to clean ; Feels a little "cheap

This is junk


I clean the chute daily and it still gets clogged so I make coffee without the grinder and line up the arrows but it still keeps spinning. This coffee pot is junk. Save your money and your mind

Don\'t waste your $$$


Instructions say to clean every 1-2 weeks for normal use. Cleaned everyday and still woke up to no coffee. Grinds get stuck in chute.[...] Well what\'s the sense of buying a [$] coffee maker that won\'t brew my favorite coffee? Really bad design.

Hard To Clean

Great brewer, easy to clean, small profile. Water filter built in for ease of use

Low profile grind coffee maker

Pot doesn't stay super warm for longer than an hour

Ease of use

Consumer review by:



Great gift for an older person to get grinding and brewing is so invigorating...

easy to use, even my 70+ mother in law had no problem getting grinding and brewing

the glass carraffe, i think i would of preferred the stainless steel one

Consumer review by:

Coffee is great


This pot is remarkable BUT: The many parts that need cleaning daily take due-diligence; the water water reservoir MUST be cleaned monthly; there is a filter that must be changed monthly; we used the metal filter as the paper filters do not biodegrade...

Fresh coffee from freshly ground coffee beans of choice

Cleaning of multiple parts on daily basis; it is a "primadonna" coffee maker
