Makes great coffee
Large Pot
Long Brew Time
Pot Was Terrible
Best Uses
This pot really makes very good coffee. We like it strong. However, I replaced the carafe immediately because it dripped when pouring due to a poor design of spout not being in the glass of carafe but made out of plastic. We have had for about 4 years, use mostly on weekends. Top latch just broke and will have to replace. Reluctant to buy again.
