The Emerson CCM901 is part of the coffeemaker
test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, drip coffeemaker
models like the CCM901 are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.
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.
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 brew-and-dispense models. The latter hold the coffee in a tank; you fill your cup by pressing it against the dispenser lever.

I got this machine after reading a favorable review by consumer reports. I was happy with it at first even though I had problems with the espresso maker- the process was complicated and I have owned espresso machines in the past. After 4 months of use, the coffee pot broke and I have been unable to find a replacement pot that fits/works properly. I called Emerson and they stated that the model has been discontinued and they have no more replacement pots. They could not even give suggestions of what might work so I could continue to use the machine!
How long have you owned it:
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Not a Quality Product
Easy To Clean
I have owned this item for close to 3 months, the pump click button does not work well. Sticks and will not release. I end up just turning the thing off via the primary power on switch and pushing the pump button until it finally releases. BAD BAD quality, for the price being charged for this item keep your $$ and look for a better item. Stay away from Delonghi good item but bad quality I have owned 3 stops working or just breaks inside.
