It is a great coffee maker. Had it for about 2 years now and the only niggle is the bean hopper. The twin hopper setup is almost a gimmick, you need to think about two cups ahead. The hopper itself has a very shallow angle and the beans do not flow freely into the grinder. The idea that you can push the button and walk away is optimistic. The reality is you have to stand over it in case the beans hang up or it cancels the brew. I have wasted a lot of coffee because of this.
