Fantastic coffee maker for the price. Good quality product that makes great coffee once you have experimented a bit with the strength and amount of water required (go for double the amount of cups you want).
1.0 out of 5 starsDo not buy. Awful product and awful seller.

Didn’t work - poor build quality. Had an issue with only pumping through about 20% of the water requested. Requested a return. Seller didn’t respond. Awaiting for amazon to do an A to Z claim. Do not buy.
This was to replace my existing coffee machine which had broken. I find that the replacement does not grind as fine as the old one inspite of being exactly the same model , which is a bit disappointing but apart from that is OK.
Edit after 3 weeks it's broken, coffee stinks some plastic, coffee machine as well. Like some cables are melting inside. Don't buy it It's not worth the money. I'm very disappointed edit there was no problem with sending on warranty, they quickly changed for new one, we will see how long this one will work
Here within 5 days this thing is brilliant, didn't think it would be quite so good. Add the beans and it takes away the hassle of grinding them. The coffee does not taste burnt at all just it's full flavour! It also it pretty hot unlike others that have made Luke warm coffee. A auto timer lets you program it to grind, brew and be ready for when you get up. On max setting for strength this is perfect for me with the beans I already love. You fill the water tank up and it makes 12 cups of coffee, not short as my previous model used to. Easyily fills my flask and thermal cup on a morning. The filter can be taken out washed and reused over and over. 2 things I don't like are. I keep mine in the corner of the kitchen and to refill the water I have to physically move the whole unit out to add more water via the lid at the back. Also the steam from the brewing goes up across the front and buttons so time will tell if this creates a malfunctioning button. I will report back if it starts playing up. Bad points- the hot plate goes off way too soon (half hour)
I purchased this item about 3 years ago, it looks good & when working its fine, But after 1 year the cup function would not work (set for 4 cup you got 2!), the warranty is 2 years & Andrew James replaced it without any fuss. The existing one is now over 2 years old, the coffee is barely hot, this despite descaling every month as I live in a hard water area. I am looking for another coffee maker/grinder, I don't honestly think this is worth the money.
