Time for a new coffee maker

This is the one we are thinking of getting... Does anyone have one?
Do you like it? Would you buy it again?


Thanks, Trish\

folks I know have had trouble with capresso. looks fine brews fine but burns out quickly. Black and Decker still makes one of the best thermal carafe coffee makers. (I'm on my second in 22 years! Buddy of mine has one, as does my sis-she inherited hers from mom!)

Pds,
I'm not familiar with the Capresso, I've had different Cuisenart coffee makers over the years. The last one I loved, but, it annoyed me so that I gave it to my son-in-law and Dh bought me a Hamilton Beach brew master. My problem with the Cuisenart was I'm short and when I'd go to fill the pot it was so high up I had a hard time getting it into the pot without spilling. Everytime I'd make caffee I had to mop up under and around the pot yeeeesh!!
This one, the brew master has a large opening, and is lower..I also like the feature of pressing my cup against a bar and that dispenses the coffee. No glass carafe to pick up and pour from..I didn't think I was going to like the brew master at first, but, I love it..

My dd just bought one of those that grinds the beans and makes the coffee. She loves it. I don't remember what the name is.
