Great Coffee in a Small-Sized High-end Brewer
August 24, 2017
This makes excellent coffee, bottom-line.

It is simple; no-frills; just push the power button to start brewing. If you hold the button in for five seconds, you can switch it to the immersion mode where it will pre-soak your grounds before brewing, which is great if you use freshly roasted beans as I do.

It doesn't have a timer or programmed brew levels -- it just makes great coffee, and only five minutes after you start the brewing process.

I love the nice pouring spout on this carafe; no drips when pouring. I know some people have complained about how you have to invert the coffee carafe to get the last bit out. My solution for that is when it is almost empty, I take the lid off and just pour!

The only con I can think of is really a clumsy error on my part. When you put the filter basket on top of the pot, don't jarr it -- otherwise you'll get a pile of grounds on your countertop. I just wish that basket was a bit more secure, or if it were hinged.

But, all in all, it has a great showerhead that nicely immerses the grounds. It's the best-tasting coffee I've had from anything other than a french press.
Overall a great cup of coffee
August 3, 2017
I've held off writing my review to give time to fully experience using the Bonavita BV1900TS. Overall it is great and certainly, as many reviews suggest, it makes a great cup of coffee. This is likely helped by using a bean that I like and grinding just before use. I have also swopped over from paper filters to a metal filter and I've activated the pre-soak option. The unit is easy to fill, and the full 8-cups of coffee are produced in around 6-7 minutes with not much noise, although quite a bit of steam is generated. The carafe keeps coffee warm for around an hour and is certainly a better option than alternative heated glass systems. There is a minor convenience to having to remove the filter container to place the pourer cover on the carafe, but at least it encourages cleaning up the unit straight away. The only complaint I have is that the round plastic top of the carafe pourer seems to have deformed slightly and now easily pops off.

>> I sent off a warranty request to Bonavita and a week later received a brand new carafe lid. Excellent service and the new led works perfectly!
So far SO GREAT!!!
July 8, 2017
This coffee maker is my current obsession!!! I've been in the market for coffee makers for ages & I am so happy with this one. I'm the only coffee drinker in my house & I've been so disappointed with all the single cup coffee makers on the market. I do like French Press coffee, but I don't have time for the maintenance. This coffee maker has proven to be the perfect match for me!!! I brew 3 cups (15 oz) each morning & (per someone else's review) DIRECTLY into my AVEX, Brew Pint Glass, 20oz & walk out the door with a perfect cup of coffee! I've actually become a bit of a coffee snob! However, I can also brew 8 cups for when I have company!!! Perfection!!! Plus, it's pretty easy to clean!!! So far (it's been about a month) I am thrilled with my purchase!!!
Pro tip: for "single serve" coffee, swap the carafe for this tumbler
May 30, 2016
The only thing I don't like about this coffee maker is the carafe. And because I usually only make a half batch (4 "cups" or 20 oz) for myself, I found an insulated stainless steel tumbler that you can actually use in place of the carafe for brewing. The brew basket fits perfectly inside the mouth of the AVEX, Brew Pint Glass, 20oz, Slate and the height matches perfectly too. Just fill the water reservoir to 4 cups. It even leaves a little room for cream.
A Game Changer
July 26, 2015
This is my 3/25/2017 updated review. My original review is set forth below.

My Capresso coffee bean grinder broke a couple of days ago. I replaced it with a De'Longhi Dedica Burr Grinder. I cannot emphasize strongly enough how much better the De'Longhi is in every possible way. Its burrs look much sturdier and much sharper. It sounds and feels much more solid. It produces grinds that are much more consistent. It offers much more control over the choice of grind output. It outputs the grinds into a well-sealed container (or portafilter), without any messiness; my Capresso required daily cleanup. My coffee tastes better. It's much more expensive than my Capresso, but to me it's well worth it - especially of it lasts a long time before breaking. There really is a very big difference between the two.

My original review is set forth below.

This is one of those rare products that is a game changer. It doesn't just make excellent coffee. It also enhances your life. (By comparison, you can see my review of the Technivorm Moccamaster KBGT 10-cup Coffee Brewer with Thermal Carafe that I bought from Amazon.)

My wife and I enjoyed the $100.00 12-cup Cuisinart coffee maker with glass carafe for years. It still works fine. We bought the Moccamaster to try to find something even better. We disliked it very much, and returned it. We bought this 8-cup Bonavita, based on its reviews on the CNET website, the Amazon website, and other websites. We love it.

We initially chose the Moccamaster over the Bonita, because it says it is 10-cups and Bonavita says its coffee maker is only 8 cups. We since have learned that both coffee makers are 40-ounce machines. The difference is that Moccamaster calls a cup 4 ounces, and Bonita calls a cup 5 ounces. There's no difference between the amounts of coffee they make.

We very much prefer the Bonavita metal carafe to the Cuisinart glass carafe. The coffee in the Bonavita carafe never burns. The Bonavita carafe is excellent at keeping the coffee very hot throughout breakfast and long after. This means we can begin the brew process at any time, instead of waiting until just before we begin to eat. The brew process is very fast (about 5 minutes), and the brew light turns off to signal when it's finished. When the brew process is finished, the coffee maker shuts itself off. (I always have trouble hearing the "beep" that the Cuisinart coffee maker makes to signal the end of the brew process.) We bring the carafe to the table, and when we want a refill, we don't have to get up from the table and go back to the glass carafe on the coffee maker's hot plate to get another cup of coffee. The bottom of the metal carafe is smooth and cool to the touch, so we can put in on our wood-top kitchen table without a trivet. The metal carafe is dishwasher-safe. The Moccamaster carafe is not as cool to the touch, is not entirely stainless steel (it has a plastic bottom attached), and is not dishwasher-safe.

The Bonavita is extremely simple and easy to use. I cannot imagine a more simple or easy design. There are no parts to fidget with, adjust, or move. All it requires is filling the easy-to-fill water reservoir (clearly marked, and non-removable), putting the sturdy plastic basket on top of the metal carafe (with zero difficulty), putting a filter into the basket, adding coffee grounds, and placing the carafe (with the basket on top of it) beneath the brew spout (with zero difficulty). There are no moving parts, and no removable parts. The carafe sits on a base plate, which does not have a heating element and only serves to unify the beautiful simplicity of operation and design of the Bonavita. The Bonavita is low enough to fit beneath our kitchen cabinets, even with the reservoir's top open (which allows it to air-dry easily. The only operator control is the on-off switch (the only exception being that, if you want pre-infusion for freshly-roasted-and-ground coffee beans, you have to hold the on-off switch for a short while when you begin the brew process). Cleaning is exceptionally easily; you only have to rinse the carafe and the coffee basket (made of sturdy plastic, with no moving parts). When I say "no moving parts", I am being literal; there are no switches or levers to stop the brew process when you remove the carafe during the brewing process There is no need to ever remove the carafe during the brewing process, because it lasts only about 5 minutes. The lid for the carafe is solidly made, very easy to use, and keeps the coffee very hot. The base plate is integrated in the construction, and does not require any fidgeting or adjustment; it is not removable. The Bonavita does not provide 2 carafe lids, it's lid is perfect and seals well, and the carafe pours easily and neatly. The Moccamaster provides 2 lids, one to use during brewing, and one to keep the coffee hot longer.

The Bonavita sprays the heated water over the coffee grounds through a large round stationary spray-head with a dozen holes. The Moccamaster spray-head covers a much smaller area rectangular in shape, and has fewer than half as many holes for the hot water to drip out onto the coffee grounds; it also rotates, is removable, and sits on a soft plastic gasket that may or may not last very long.

The Bonavita's power cord can be positioned to exit the bottom of the coffee maker from the front, side, or rear. The Moccamaster's cord exits only from one location. We are happy about the Bonavita's choices, because it allows us to avoid having the power cord be a nuisance and a distraction.

The entire design of the Bonavita makes life easier, prevents having a pot-full of coffee spill all over our kitchen countertop, and allow us to sit and chat together at breakfast - enjoying our coffee maker rather than being controlled by it.

At the end of all this, however, is the question of how the coffee tastes. This question is critical. The answer is that it tastes excellent. It is very robust, very tasty, and extremely hot. Taste is "a matter of taste", but for us it's everything we had hoped for. However, I would like to note one thing. Bonavita's instructions are to use 2 tablespoons of coffee grounds for every cup. We prefer much less. We've used the Bonavita twice so far. The first time, we made 6 cups and used 4-1/2 tablespoons of coffee grounds; we liked that. The second time, we made 6 cups and used 5-1/4 tablespoons of coffee grounds; we like that too, but not as much. We'll continue to experiment, but the point is this -- with a slight adjustment in the amount of coffee grounds we use, we are able to easily and noticeably change the flavor and intensity of the coffee. In both instances, we used Peet's coffee (Sumatra blend -- we used ground coffee, but soon will try coffee beans that we grind) and the brewed coffee tasted very smooth.

Other than increasing the Bonavita's size from 8 cups to 10 or 12 cups, there is one issue for which I'd suggest improvement. The stainless steel carafe is tipped by a plastic rim (with integrated plastic handle). The plastic is smooth and sturdy, but inside the carafe it has a "lip". The result is that the carafe does not entirely "drip dry" after sitting in a dish drainer. It's not a big problem; it only means that I have to dry the inside of the "lip" with a kitchen towel. However, it would be nice if it had no "lip" and totally dripped dry.

Updated Review (August 22, 2015):
My wife and I bought the Capresso 565.05 Infinity Conical Burr Grinder (Stainless Steel), and are using Allegro coffee beans from Whole Foods (we are trying different beans, to see what we like best). We never considered ourselves coffee snobs, but the combination of Bonavita, Capresso, and whole beans yields better coffee than we imagined possible. The most significant feature is that our coffee is absolutely free of bitterness and acidity. We also bought Planetary Design Airspace chrome containers to hold our coffee beans, and we bought Espresso Grinder Brush (Heavy Wood Handle with natural bristles) to clean our grinder -- we like them both very much.

A workhorse drip machine.
May 1, 2017
I had an issue with my seller which caused the item to arrive with a damaged carafe, but this is a separate issue and not an inherent product design flaw.

Overall the design is simple enough to use, and very minimalist in terms of its ease of operation. The coffee is consistent depending on your quality of beans and grinder, and generally the more expensive your drip brewer the more consistent it should be. The heating system is powerful and brewing starts in a matter of moments with the pre-infusion feature. I'm not wild about the all-stainless carafe (coffee seems to stain and develop foul flavors when exposed to it long term), but it can always be replaced by a glass decanter of appropriate height. Realistically, the end results are very similar to Technivorm, and for half the cost. Unless you have $300 budgeted for your drip brewer, the BV1900TS will slaughter any other brewer at or below its price range.
A great Coffee machine with some minor opportunities
December 23, 2016
After 3 months of use am happy with the overall performance of this Coffee machine. The design may look ungainly however, it is functional & much improved over the last model. The coffee brewed is consistently hot & tasty as per the machine specs. Many competing machines can't seem to get the temperature & brewing cycle right however, Bonavita can!

If there is one area that could be improved it would be the stainless flask lip where coffee exits. As this is placed high up one is forced to literally hold the flask 180 perpendicular to pour Coffee into ones cup. Also, because of this, & a black internal lip inside of this stainless flask coffee is always trapped & can never fully empty it!

Overall, it's a great, functional Coffee machine that delivers on the promises made.
Brews a really good tasting cup of coffee
September 9, 2016
Brews a really good tasting cup of coffee. Just fool around with the grounds until you get the taste you want. The carafe keeps the coffee hot for hours. The one problem is the pouring spout on the carafe...when filling the water container, the water spills all over the place due to a poor design. You can put the regular pouring top on and use that top fill the water container, but it takes forever due to the design. Very well designed and no fancy buttons to push, looks good on the kitchen counter....but fix the carafe.
The Best Despite Some Drawbacks
August 9, 2016
Great coffee and easy to use....just a few nagging things that could be better. Love that the carafe keeps the coffee warm for so long (hours). Quick, auto shut off, no "cooked" coffee.
Cons:
*Carafe pours VERY VERY VERY slowly once the coffee has cooled at all. Take the lid off to pour faster? You end up with a counter full of coffee mess! Even though there's a pour spout indentation with the lid off, IT DOESN'T WORK! (poor design)
*The pour lid comes apart for easy cleaning but is impossible to get back together! I ended up using a silver Sharpie to mark the lid so I wouldn't throw it across the kitchen anymore. (there are no marking on the top telling one where to line it up)
*The inside is very stained. I imagine this is a characteristic of "stainless"(?) steel but it's ugly. Still, it's better than glass or plastic.
All in all, the best coffee maker, taste-wise, that I've ever owned.
Great Coffee Maker and Great Customer Service
February 8, 2016
This coffee maker has made the most consistent coffee of any previous unit we have owned.
As someone else had stated, it produces a 90% pour over coffee 100% of the time.

Pros:
Consistent 195 to 200 degree water from the showerhead.
Carafe keeps coffee hot for 3-4 hours.
Minimal amount of moving parts.
Has a 'bloom' feature for wetting the grounds before brewing.

Cons:
Must turn carafe almost upside down to pour the last bit of coffee.
Seems that if not de-scaled consistently, large amounts of steam emit from the vents above the showerhead.
Only holds 8 5oz cups (not really a con, but worth noting if you are used to a larger coffee cup size).

Bonavita has Great Customer Service:
After 4 months of use, we noticed small fractures in the water reservoir. No water ever leaked and you really couldn't notice them unless you removed the carafe and looked closely (see attached photo).
I contacted Bonavita customer service using their website, filled out a very short online form, uploaded a photo and receipt. With 3 business days we received an email stating a new unit was being shipped and to discard the old unit. No other questions were asked and there was no hassle.
The new unit arrived within a few days and works perfectly.

Thank you Bonavita!

It's ok
July 17, 2017
I'm not a fan of this coffee maker. I knew I may not like it before I bought it because of the lid/design. I don't like how it's open at the top before and after you brew the coffee. if you accidently bump it you risk dumping the coffee. My husband insisted that this was the best coffee maker available in the price range we were wiling to spend based on countless reviews we read. I don't think it gets hot enough. If you put hot water in the carafe 10 minutes before making the coffee it is supposed to make the coffee hotter. Who has that kind of time? Then you have to wait for the coffee to brew. It doesn't take that long to make a pot of coffee- but that is the point- there's no timer to set. It's JUST a coffee maker. It's simple and easy to clean, although the carafe has coffee stains that I haven't been able to remove. I wouldn't buy this coffee maker again and with my luck it will last for 20 years before malfunctioning so we have to get a new one!
Water tank will develop cracks and shorten life of product
May 9, 2017
I write this review with mixed feelings. I *really* like this coffee maker and enjoy the coffee it brews each time. I also have had excellent experience with Bonavita customer service. If you have a problem you fill in a form and they give you a new coffee maker within a few days, so I can't fault them for not taking care of the problem.

But here's the bad news - there IS a problem with this unit. Like many others have said, the water tank develops vertical micro-cracks along the curved part near the filter basket. I think it's because of the constant exposure to the steam and heat as coffee is being made. Originally I had the first Bonavita from Nov 2015 to March 2017 and noticed dozens of cracks once I left the water tank filled for an hour and came back to a puddle and water sitting underneath water tank where you can't dry it. I filled out the form and had a new coffee maker in a few days and I've only used it less than 2 months and already there are cracks again. I am only using the coffee maker 4-5 times a week, with filtered water and following all directions including cleaning at regular intervals. Whatever they are making this tank out of, it is NOT durable and will unfortunately not last, and it's something that has not been fixed between 11/2015 and 03/2017 so I can't say it's a production run or a fluke. The tank is just insufficient. As long as you have the warranty, Bonavita will replace it with a new one, but it seems that for the hassle and waste involved you only temporarily solve the problem, and once your two year warranty is up then you are stuck.

This certainly isn't the most expensive coffee maker, but it also ain't cheap and you should be able to count on more than a couple months of moderate use before problems arise. It's a real shame because other than this I really have no complaints about this coffee maker and I'd use it for years if I could.
Disappointed with this Coffee Maker
May 7, 2017
Three years ago we were in the market for a new Coffee Maker so after doing some research we narrowed it down to two Makers. The Bonavita and the Icoffee. Back then we chose the Icoffee for various reasons, with the most important choose being "Price". After three years of faithful use the Icoffee began to leak water from the tank so we needed to replace right away. It was either replace the Icoffee or purchase something else. While the Icoffee was a wonderful maker we wanted to see what the Bonavita was all about. The price has come down since we last purchased a coffee maker so it was more appealing this time around.

Right off the bat the Bonavita does not make a better cup of coffee than the Icoffee which was the most important feature for us other than price. While the Coffee maker does make a good cup of coffee it's not on the same level, but it is close. The biggest issue with the coffee maker is the stainless steel carafe as many people have complained about excess coffee or water being trapped in the carafe due to poor design. We have also noticed the coffee after it sits for more than an hour takes on a metal taste since the newer carafe does not have a glass lining like the previous carafes.

The smaller water tank isn't a big deal for us as we don't drink more than two cups in the morning and rarely serve coffee when we entertain. Overall I would say the Coffee maker is slightly above average for the reasons mentioned above. We do like the looks over the Icoffee which go better with our Kitchen appliances.

Based on early usage, I would not purchase this coffee maker again and would opt for the Icoffee instead.
it works but is it worth the effort?
April 5, 2017
This is a good coffee maker, no doubt about that. But it has some shortcomings:
1. It only brews 8 cups.
2. It uses a thermal carafe instead of a warmer plate which really comes in handy when one wants HOT coffee cup after cup.
3. The thermal carafe does not keep the coffee hot, it degrades in temperature quite quickly. We are talking minutes.
4. The thermal carafe is sloppy when pouring; both pouring the water into the tank and when pouring brewed coffee into a cup. Some invariably spills. And there is another spill when one empties the carafe; a surprise is always left over for cleanup.
5. The "showerhead" hot water dispenser into the filter basket always left a certain amount of water ready to drip off the head when one moved the contraption. Paper towels were always needed to mop up the residual.

I was surprised how well the coffee tasted from this product. Alas, after two weeks of trying to finesse this invention I felt it was not worth the effort to get a decent cup of coffee from it.
GREAT brewer, LOUSY carafe
October 16, 2016
Heard so much good about this brewer, especially how it received the SCAA approval for a home drip coffee brewer, that it piqued my interest. After comparing it to the MUCH costlier Moccamaster, I pulled the trigger and bought this brewer. It is the next best decision to buying a good burr grinder (Capresso 560) that I have ever made regarding improving coffee quality, coffee quality aside. Living in Seattle, we have plenty of great coffee options.
The key to this brewer is brewing temperature, and the sprayhead. The very well-designed and broad sprayhead disperses water over the grounds typically between 195-200 degrees, based on my digital thermometer, and the resulting brew is more flavorful, and hotter, than any other coffee maker I've had over the years....thermal cone carafe, ceramic cone pour over, French Press, Aeropress. However, it doesn't stay piping hot in the carafe provided. I know well enough to pre- heat any thermal carafe prior to brewing. I do so by brewing a full pot of hot water into this one, using the brewed hot water that i pour out to warm my coffee mug. However, the carafe doesn't keep the coffee hot past 15 minutes. Warm, yes. Hot, no. I have purchased a different thermal carafe to pour the coffee into after brewing to see if it can keep the great, flavorful coffee this machine brews at an acceptable temperature. Will provide an update in a few weeks.
Carafe aside, HIGHLY recommend this brewer for coffee quality, initial temperature, and ease of use. Not to mention costing less than 50% than the highly-touted Moccamaster. It's coffee, people. Gotta draw the line somewhere. And this is a great place to do so, carafe aside. GREAT BUY for someone wanting to bring out the best in coffee in a simple, easy to use, coffee-lover's brewer without having to sacrifice a car payment to do so.

Pretty small for 8-12 cups.
December 29, 2016
They say they are for 8-12 cups, but they are pretty small for that purpose. I use them to make 4 cups in my Oxo 12 cup coffee maker, and they work well for that amount. I use the larger Oxo filters when I'm making a larger amount.

Jury out!
August 24, 2017
Jury still out on this unit. Extremely easy to use. Nothing fancy,turn it on and wait. Brewed second pot today. Do not know if it was my imagination or not,but pot brewed day before seemed hotter. But in both cases,the carafe does not keep the coffee hot. After one hour poured the third and final cup. It was not nearly as hot as the first one. I brew only six cups which equates to three mugs. I do not know if 6 cup vs 8cups creates a temperature difference. Long and short if I experience the same results in the next few days will reluctantly return it. Was so looking forward to three hot cups in a row.
This is an edit. Filled coffee maker (no coffee) to 8 cup max,ran it,and after completion of process water temperature was 195 degrees. Checked water temperature in carafe and it had dropped to 165 degrees in 30 minutes. The refilled machine to 6 cups,ran it and temperature of water was 175 degrees in the carafe. It had also dropped after 30 minutes. So it would appear there is a temperature differential between capacity 6 cups vs 8 cups and the inability of the carafe to maintain temperature. My experience is the first cup was hot and downhill afer that. Sorry,but going to return this unit. Not worth the price for one cup of coffee.
it looked like a great candidate
May 1, 2017
I have tirelessly been making coffee out of French press or Chemex every morning for the last 6 years. I was tired of it, but didn't want to shell out $300 for a Moccamaster. After evaluating the reviews of the Bonavita versus the more expensive competition (Moccamaster, Oxo, etc.), it looked like a great candidate.
The first 7 months were great. Coffee tastes great, minor qualms with the carafe design and lack of anywhere to stick the filter cup; however, I was aware of that going into buying it. Living in an area with harder water, I made sure to descale every two weeks or so.
Month 8 hit, and the beloved Bonavita starts turning off after brewing about 2 cups. I have to sit by the coffee maker and turn it back on 2 or 3 times per brew cycle. I've attempted some heavy duty descaling, which seems to solve the issue while descaling, but it comes right back after the next brew.
Bummed it didn't last longer. Might be a better choice for folks with better water or willing to use RO or bottled water to brew.
Looks good but---

Here is the problem with this coffee maker. You have to place the coffee basket on top of the pot to start brewing. Once the coffee has brewed you have to remove the basket and screw the top on the pot. If you don't stand and wait for the brew cycle to finish to immediately remove the brew basket and then place the screw the top on the pot the coffee will lose heat starting immediately. The first time I made coffee I started the brew cycle then went to take a quick shower. I realized I should have waited and removed the brew basket and placed the top on the pot. Once brewed the bottom is not heated as it is with a glass carafe. Overall quality is OK, but once you remove the pot the maker is very light and feels rather cheaply made. I was replacing a older Ninja coffee maker which I feel made better coffee than the Bonavita and cost less. I timed the coffee in the pot and after 10 minutes had lost considerable heat.
Pricy in light of no features compared to the competition. Small carafe. Taste is similar to others.

I've revised my review. Let me make something clear here, while I do not profess to be a coffee snob, my daily morning coffee is vital to me. I do not like Starbucks or other boutique types of coffee. But a good, reliable, coffeemaker that makes delicious daily coffee for me is a critical device in my home that I cannot live without.
Despite the glowing positive online reviews from the coffee snob experts, this is probably the most barebones, unsophisticated coffee maker I have ever owned. If bells and whistles are your things like self-sealing carafes, brew cycle tones, programmable brew timer and auto cleaning cycles this is NOT your coffeemaker. Despite its look, this coffeemaker is really nothing more than pouring hot water over a filter to let it drip in an open carafe. The coffee it makes tastes just like the coffeemakers I have owned in the past, Cuisinart, Mr. Coffee, etc. Only the true coffee snobs could notice a difference in taste compared to them. I'm probably going to buy something else after owning this for 8 months. Also the carafe is too small for me. I prefer 12 cups to 8 cups.
Carafe needs total redesign. Awkward, pours slowly, dribbles, and heavy.

After three days of use, I am not happy with this coffee maker. The good points. Coffee brews quickly and at correct temperature. It is quiet. It shuts off automatically after brewing. Here are the problems. Thermal carafe is awkward and heavy, it pours very slowly when lid is on and dribbles when lid is off (to fill reservoir), and it does not keep coffee hot very long. (I now see why one reviewer drilled a bigger hole in the lid). After an hour in carafe, coffee needs reheating. So I am still searching for something to replace my simple ancient Braun drip coffeemaker which was discontinued many years ago.

No good for the money
August 28, 2017
We are returning this product because for the price, it does not achieve our goals (long lasting HOT coffee). We knew it was more basic than we are used to, but as the reviews were overall great, we thought we'd try it. Not only did the pot not keep the coffee hot for very long at all, the lack of basic features such as pour as you brew and even the filter to hang above not sit on the pot became annoying. This was after one use. Going to use our $30 back up and see if that one becomes our main coffee maker.
defective product and bad service unless you want to return it
August 28, 2017
First day only brewed 1 cup of coffee at a time even though filled with water. Tried it second day and brewing only two cups at a time. Called manufacturer customer service and although they are open the first thing you will hear is a long message about how to return the product, not about helping answer a question. So I followed their lead and returned it.
I would not recommend this coffee pot to anyone

I would not recommend this coffee pot to anyone. If you drink the coffee immediately, it will be hot but it cools down within minutes of brewing. The warmer element does not stay on for 2 hours either. I have never been more disappointed in a coffee machine, especially spending this kind of money only to be stuck with it.
Lukewarm!

The coffeemaker doesn't heat the coffee up enough and doesn't take advantage of all the coffee grounds, leaving a weaker, more lukewarm coffee than my 'pour -over' Chemex system. I have to microwave the coffee after I brew it to get it warm enough, It is marketed as the coffee maker that best gets temperature right; it doesn't! After two weeks use, I went back to the Chemex pour-over system, even tough it requires more person-power.
Have to restart and hope for the best. I love the filter basket design and it ...

Do not buy! This is my second one. First one produced more steam that hot water. The second gets halfway through the cycle and starts making steam then shuts off. Have to restart and hope for the best. I love the filter basket design and it makes good coffee when it works. Buyer beware, there is some sort of manufacturing issue with these. I've had this 45 days, so I'm out the money as Amazon will not take it back.

Don't overspend!
August 7, 2017
Really bad price. Average price is $1/100 count, around $2 for the 200 count. My wife made me aware of this after I was so "proud" of my purchase. Look honey, 400! Only 10 bucks! Whoops!
Flimsy, thin filter.
December 21, 2016
I bought these filters based on the Melitta brand. I expected them to be thicker than the store brand filter. I was very wrong. They are very thin, and short too. The coffee grinds flowed over the top of the filter and into the coffee. Surprised at how poor the quality was. I returned them !!

Huge disappointment!
May 21, 2017
I had high hopes for this coffee maker after extensive research and recommendation from Consumer Reports. The coffee maker was an attractive appliance which I had was confident would be excellent. However when following the instructions to run two carafes of water to flush out the unit prior to making the first pot of coffee, it failed to turn on for the second flushing. I waiting for it to cool and tried repeatedly but it simply would not work. I returned this product and purchased a Cuisinart DCC 3200 and so far so good. Definitely would not recommend based on my experience!
