About - Mr. Coffee JWX27

The Mr. Coffee JWX27 is part of the coffee maker test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, drip coffee maker models like the JWX27 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.

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.

Best Uses
I have used this coffee pot everyday, sometimes more than once a day, for the past 5 years without a hiccup. I'm not a coffee connoisseur but I do know the difference between good and bad tasting coffee, and honestly I've never had any complaints with this maker. I've never had any leaks, malfunctions or really anything to complain about. This is an affordable coffee maker perfect for someone that just needs something dependable and capable of making great coffee!!
