Keeps coffee fresher longer

Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Compact, convenient and easy to use.

Cons:Uses paper filters. Read  CAUTION and UPDATE in my review

The Bottom Line: Compact, easy to use, and seems to keep coffee fresher.  No carafe to keep clean.


I just bought this a few weeks ago and I really like it.  First, no coffee pot to keep clean and no heat element at the bottom to get dirty and smelly. 
It uses paper filters and I couldn't find one of those permanent filters that fit in it, and I was a bit reluctant to go back to paper filters.  But, honestly it is sort of easier to just dump out a filter after each use instead of trying to keep the reusable filter clean.  I know that's not exactly environmentally friendly, so try using coffee filters made from recylced product.
Very small appliance compared to some coffee makers on the market and it was very simply to use.  I like the fact that you can take out and clean the water reservoir that you use to fill it up quite easily.  This is also the reservoir that holds the coffee until you dispense it.  So this and the filter holder are the only parts of the machine that will ever need cleaning.  I really can't stand coffee unless it is made in a freshly cleaned machine.  And this one is very easy to keep clean.  Most coffee makers dispense the coffee into a coffee pot and heat it from underneath...the evaporation that takes place is one of the things that causes coffee to get that bitter taste after a while.  This coffee maker keeps the coffee inside of a closed reservoir that limits the amount of evaporation and seems to stay fresher longer.  You just push your cup up against a small button and it pours the coffee out.
ONE CAUTION:  The lid on the machine automatically pushes out a small plastic 'arm' when you close it that pours the water over the filter to brew the coffee.  If you aren't careful the 'arm' will accidentally push on the filter when you close it and you will end up with coffee grounds in the reservoir area.  None ended up in my coffee but I noticed it when I cleaned out the reservoir later.  I avoid this by moving the arm over the filter myself before shutting it and making sure it doesn't move the filter.
UPDATE:  I mentioned the issue with the problem with the 'arm' moving the filter and causing coffee grounds to go into the water reservoir....well at the time I didn't think it caused a big problem but this morning the coffee maker didn't work right.  No water was 'poured' over the coffee grounds...it all stayed in the water reservoir.  So, I read the instructions and it says that it could be coffee grounds stuck in the machine.  It recommends cleaning with vinegar.  It unfortunately didn't say how to do this.  So I tried taking the machine apart and rinsing thoroughly under water...(not easy to do) and poured a cup of vinegar in the reservoir and ran a regular coffee cycle (Without adding the coffee and filter).  This did the trick.  Normally this would cause me to change my rating on this, but I will admit that when I found coffee grounds in the machine a few days ago, I didn't cean the machine as well as I should have.  So, this may have been partly my fault.  I will update again if this problems continues.
