About - Bella Dots Collection 12-cup

The Bella Dots Collection 12-cup is part of the coffee maker test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, drip coffee maker models like the Dots Collection 12-cup are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.


Brew performance:
The ability to reach 195° to 205° F for five or six minutes, the industry standard for optimal brewing.

Convenience:
Reflects ease of filling the reservoir, placing the filter, gauging the amount of coffee remaining, and cleaning up. It also reflects how clear we judged the controls.

Carafe handling:
Covers handle comfort, tendency to drip while pouring, balance of a full carafe, and how easy it was to empty the last liquid. Models with no score here brew into single-serve cups or are self-serve models. The latter hold the coffee in a tank; you fill your cup by pressing it against the dispenser lever.
