Poor design thwarts interesting concept
Hassle To Add Water
Poor Design Functionality
Best Uses
The coffee from this unit doesnt taste as good and the consumer reports indication that the water isnt hot enough may be why. <br /><br />We had been attracted to its interesting dispenser design. Unfortunately, this unit is poorly designed and annoying to use as the design requires you to remove multiple parts to get to the water basin. Essentially you need to remove several parts, then fill the water basin, then replace the parts. Compared to every other coffee maker i've ever used its quite tedious.

Best Uses
I have had my Hamilton Beach Brew Station about one year and it has worked satisfactorily until today. Today when I turn it on I get 3 beeps and a flashing sign that says POUR WATER however there is water in the water chamber. The coffee maker thinks there is no water to make coffee with but the chamber is full.

I thought, how cool a free(well aside from tax) coffee machine. We got it and within a week we had the old one back out. The machine wacko the entire house up. My husbands old reliable came out and we continued to use that for 2 more yrs before the glass finally broke. So out come the barely used one. It still make a god awful sound in the am and not to mention which take forever. I'm so disappointed I will never waste point like that again sad sad sad I am. Sincerely Olivia Dunlap disappointed coffee drinker :( :( to bad cuz I love my coffee in the morning please if Hamilton is listening show me otherwise.sent me a coffee maker that I can be proud of pleasssssse?
