But He Never Has a Second Cup?

 

After my Starbucks Barista Coffee Maker dispensed its brew all over the counter for the third time I decided it was time for a new coffee maker. There were three things the Barista had, which my new coffee maker had to have as well:

Good look. Thermal carafe. Many features. Stainless steel. Cone filter. Great coffee

Dated LED. Hotplate used

Compact design well-suited for under-counter use

Terrible tasting coffee with a plastic taste. Not hot enough
