Perfect coffeemaker for the perfect cup of coffee!


Before we bought this, our family had a rather lousy and unpredictable way of making coffee. We would just take some beans, ground them, and filter water into a metal cup. Sometimes the coffee would be overpoweringly bitter, other times it would be ...

Makes robust flavored coffee. Easy to operate.

None much.

Not bad for the price


I bought the Braun 180 after my Braun 185 started to give me problems after years of faithful service. I would have purchased another 185 but I just missed the end of their production. The 180 is almost the same machine but without the temperature ...

12 cup machine

All The Flavor without the Bitterness


As someone who just recently got into the "world" of coffee, I have to say that the Braun 12-cup FlavorSelect was a great introduction. A good present I received this coffee maker from my father-in-law as a Hannukah present. He bought it ...

Automatic start, flavor select, heating element, 12-cup capacity, easy to clean.

The carafe is somewhat fragile.

Great coffee, but be careful


Yes, you will get great coffee with this coffeemaker, and fast. But as you stumble around the kitchen bleary-eyed before that first cup, be careful. Why? The "on" button is on the front, just at the same level as the edges of many dishes or plates. Sev...

Good coffee, fast

Don't do it!


It's simple! Wonderful coffee but the carafe breaks very easily. Before you by the machine look on the net to find out how much you will be gouged for a replacement carafe. They don't seem to be available at major retailers as replacements. Braun...

One of the greatest cups of coffee I've ever had!!

I'm brewing Coffee in a saucepan. Can't afford a new carafe at $30 shipped

Great Coffee - Short Life!


We bought this coffee maker to replace a Krups. We loved our Krups but found the designs changed so much we couldn't find one to our liking so we picked the Braun. We were very happy with it until one morning after only 8 months of ownership - NO...

Great Coffee, Pause & Pour, Programmable

Worked only 8 months!

Braun used to equal quality.


This is my third unit of the same kind, and two out of three broke within two years. The first was nicely repaired under warranty, then broke again a year later. The second broke just after a year for the first time and it costs about as much to have...

Makes exceptional good coffee.

A great coffeemaker


My wife and I bought this coffeemaker after our latest "freebie" coffeemaker from Gevalia died. What a difference! We love this unit. It brews great-tasting coffee quickly. The "flavor dial" which can be used to control the intensity of the coffee...

Great tasting coffee, brews quickly, filters water, programmable heating plate minimizes burnt coffee, looks sharp.

Pricey, but frequently on sale. Water filter cartridges are a (modest) extra expense.

Dead sexy.


Ill probably never own a Mercedes or BMW, but Im intimate with the fetishistic devotion they inspire. You see, Im on my third Braun automatic coffeemaker. And the second one wasnt even broken.

Hot hot hot

Braun makes a great coffeemaker


This is a must have kitchen product!! This Braun coffeemaker is one great appliance to have in your kitchen, office or where ever you like to enjoy your coffee. It has a two hour timer, so if you leave it on, by accident, it will turn itself off. Also,...
