The perfect cup of coffee

Pros:Simple, easy to use. Reasonably priced.

Cons:Only available in the Quatro size.

The Bottom Line:

If you can recognize a perfectly brewed of coffee, this is a must!


     I was a regular at our local Starbucks, and often thought they should rename their “triple shot Grande brave latte with sugar-free vanilla syrup” after me! A couple of years ago my husband and I decided to move our family to a farming community where the nearest coffee house was now 50 miles away. With my pricey, tasty addiction we bought a Jura-Capresso Jura Ena 3 Espresso Machine & Coffee Maker which has successfully brewed my cappuccinos and saved me from having Starbucks withdraws. Realizing that it’s possible to make delicious coffee in your own kitchen I began my search for a smaller version that I could keep in the RV.  

     It was the Starbucks Barista Quattro 4-cup coffee maker that won my vote.  For the diehard coffee connoisseur who does not want to wait in a line for perfect java, the Starbucks Barista Quattro 4-cup coffee maker was made for you.  The Quattro is perfect for those who appreciate the quality of a good cup of coffee, simple enough that an owner’s manual can be put aside, and is reasonably priced.  Now don’t get me wrong, I love my Capresso, I just needed a smaller simpler version while on the road.   

     The unique feature of the Quatro is the stainless steel thermal carafe which keeps the coffee perfectly hot for hours. The Top-filling water tank makes it easy and accessible to add the exact amount of water needed. While brewing, the water reaches temperatures of over 200° F. This is significant for ensuring every ounce of your favorite flavor of your coffee grounds gets extracted, this is the secret barista experts use for making the perfect cup of coffee. Once the process is finished the carafe keeps the coffee at a constant temperature of 180° F up to 6 hours. This makes your afternoon cup just as satisfying as your first cup of the day. 

      Another unique feature is the gold-mesh cone shaped filter (#4); I simply rinse it with soap and water after each use.  It has a AM/PM Programmable Clock/Timer that is easy to read and allows you to set the time for brewing so you can wake up to the delicious  aroma of coffee . Other features include the Stop-and-Serve, for those who cannot wait for the 4 cup brewing process to finish and a soft grip handle making it easy and safe to pour. 

      Because of the insulated thermal carafe, do not place it in the dishwasher. The carafe lid is specially designed to ensure optimal flavor retention. The coffee maker brews the coffee directly into the carafe so it seals in the heat and flavor for perfectly brewed coffee. The Auto Shut-off feature is just another bonus for us who can never remember if the coffee maker was turned off.

Thank-you Starbucks for bringing the barista bar into our homes
