Product description

Incorporating style, convenience and performance, this coffee machine has it all! With an integrated grinder and a 24 hour programmable timer, our Coffee Maker guarantees you the freshest possible coffee, exactly when you need it, and exactly how you like it.

How big is your caffeine craving?
You can make 2 - 12 cups at a time in the Coffee Maker, and set the strength of your brew to weak, medium or strong. Coffee takes only a few minutes to brew, and you can enjoy it as soon as there's enough in the carafe thanks to the anti-drip spout which shuts off if the jug is removed. The gauge on the side of the machine lets you know when water needs topping up.

With Beans
Add whole beans to the grinder section at the top of the Coffee Maker and choose the 'grind on' function. Beans will be ground and used right away to make your coffee. You can change how finely or coarsely ground the coffee is using the knob by the grinder compartment.

Without Beans
You can also simply use ready ground beans or filter coffee as you would with a standard coffee machine. Just choose the 'grind off' setting and add the powder into the filter compartment, where hot water will rush through, picking up all the delicious flavour and filtering through into the carafe.

Timing
The ultimate in convenience, you can set the Coffee Maker to start brewing coffee at any time using the 24 hour clock. Once brewed, the hotplate will keep coffee warm for up to 30 minutes, so you can go back for a refill.

Maintenance
The reusable mesh filter can simply be removed and cleaned, so you don't need to stock up on paper filters. The coffee machine can be cleaned with a damp cloth to keep it looking smart, and occasionally running through water with some descaler will keep the machine in good condition.

Beans to coffee via one machine costing only £80? Yes, I was suspicious initially. Nonetheless, this is an easy to use and effective machine which produces very good coffee quickly.

There seems to be some confusion regarding the water reservoir - I can confirm that if you completely fill the water chamber (with 12 cups-worth of water) and then tell the machine to make say 4 cups, it does as instructed. It does not automatically use all the available water. I tend to drink from a mug rather than a cup and 2 cups = 1 large-ish mug.

The water and bean chambers can be fully filled and will keep producing coffee for a couple of days before refill needed (subject to consumption volume obviously). The filter mesh needs cleaning prior to each brew however - failure to do so will affect machine speed and coffee quality. Filter clean only takes a few seconds.

There is an adjustment for the bean grinder whereby you can set the resultant particle size; this does make a difference to the taste and it's well worth experimenting with this, particularly if you use beans of various types and flavours.

The program control is a bit of a gimmick imho....as the machine makes a couple of cups in 2 or 3 minutes, I don't really see any compelling reason to program it in advance. Might be more useful if a large quantity of coffee required.

On one occasion, there was a coffee puddle remaining in the carafe and I forgot to turn the unit off. On my return hours later I noticed that the liquid had evaporated; fortunately the glass was easy to clean and the residue was not badly burnt onto the glass. I think it automatically turns itself off after 2 hours.

I bought this coffee maker to replace one which sadly expired on Christmas morning 2014. I should start out by saying that I'm a coffee lover, although maybe not a "coffee nerd" as such. I do own many different devices for making coffee : an espresso machine, a stove top pot, Aeropress, French press etc. I like to keep a filter machine at home as part of that arsenal. I like variety and thus I tend to vary the device I use to make my coffee according to mood as they all produce a drink with differing qualities. I don't mind hand grinding small quantities of beans and I do that when I use my Aeropress but for larger quantities of beans I find it takes more time than I am willing to wait.

I had actually never heard of Andrew James when I started investigating a replacement coffee maker. If that is the case for you then please don't let that put you off in the slightest. This is a very well made and thought out piece of equipment which I wouldn't hesitate to recommend and that's before taking the bargain price into account.

Many bean to *cup* machines will cost several times this price. There are other bean to *jug* machines available, some of them for not a great deal more than this and made by "better known" names. However upon investigating these rival coffee makers I found various "features" which I didn't like. Some of them required the use of carbon filters in the water system, others would simply take and use all of the water you put into the reservoir each time you brewed. I also liked the fact that this machine makes use of a glass jug on a hot plate simply because that is what I'm used to rather than an insulated jug with no hot plate.

I'm afraid up to this point I have to write the same review as various others here. The machine itself looks great and at first makes good coffee. However, just as others have said, it very quickly descends into making only 2 cups no matter how much water and what setting it's on. I contacted Andrew James for a replacement and they were only too happy to send another machine. They asked (They being Lynne B in the Quality Team) that I send the other machine back and they would send back to the manufacturer as this was a recurring issue. I assume therefore Andrew James whitelabel the product. They also agreed to cover the return shipping. A similar thing happened with a previous Andrew James product but the service was so good that I decided to order again. Second machine arrived with exactly the same issue after a week or two. This time I tried to return it but was told that we would need to try and descale it first to test it. I was then informed that because we were in a hard water area we would need to descale every two weeks and this was the cause of the issue, not the machine itself! I've written back explaining just how ridiculous this is and am waiting a reply. Hopefully I can update this again soon. I can only assume that the dozens of other people with the same issue on here also live in hard water areas which seem to affect a product straight out of the box in some cases. How they manage to bath or shower in those areas I'll never know!

We've had this coffee maker for a few weeks now, my initial thoughts are:

Firstly the pro's:
- the price is unbeatable
- it looks nice, it certainly doesn't look cheap.
- there are a full range of controls; grind size, strength, number of cups.
- can be used with ground coffee as well as beans
- if you remove the carafe mid brew the filter basket seals tight so you don't get drips
- you can set the machine to brew automatically
- There is a very cool steam vent in the top. I don't know why I like this so much, but it's great!

Cons
- the most significant drawback is that sometimes the water only drips on one side of the coffee grounds in the filter, wasting most of the coffee grounds and making very weak coffee. I haven't worked out what causes this, but it is a major problem
- the plastic of the filter and the carafe lid feels a bit weak.

There are also a number of common sense things to be aware of:
- you will still have to empty and clean the filter after every brew
- you will still have to top up the water every 12 cups (or 6 mugs)
- the grinder sounds like an industrial drill. Don't put this in your bedroom and expect to wake up gently to the smell of coffee brewing...

In summary, this is a great looking, capable machine at an unbelievable price. However, it doesn't reliably make good coffee because of the way it drips onto the coffee grounds.

EDIT: I have not had a repeat of the 'one sided water drip' problem for months now, so it's possible something was not fulling closed or done properly. I would add a few things that I've noticed over time: 1) it is very sensitive to hard water and will slowly make smaller and smaller cups of coffee, until you switch to soft water which clears it up fairly quickly. 2) It is quite generous with the amount of coffee it grinds.
