About - Mr. Coffee BVMC-SJX33GT

The Mr. Coffee BVMC-SJX33GT is part of the coffeemaker test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, drip coffeemaker models like the BVMC-SJX33GT 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 brew-and-dispense models. The latter hold the coffee in a tank; you fill your cup by pressing it against the dispenser lever.

Comment:
I received this coffeemaker for Christmas after my old Mr. Coffee unit started leaking around the seams. I loved that old coffeemaker & owned it for about 5yrs. As others stated, you do have to pull this out to fill the water reservoir, but that's not a problem for me. I have never had dry coffee grounds after it brews. I have to be a little careful how fast I pour the first cup of coffee, as coffee will spill out on the counter if poured too fast. I wash my filter basket and the inner basket every day with soap and warm water and let it air dry. I also leave the top to the water reservoir open during the day to let it dry out. I don't think it should be left wet inside all the time. That's not a problem for me to do. Someone mentioned the beeping after the coffee begins to brew. I believe that is to let you know that it has started to make coffee. It also beeps 3 times after it goes off, which happens automatically after 2 hours. I always have my coffeemaker on Strong brew and have never tried it on regular so I don't know if there is a difference in strength or not. All I know is this coffeemaker makes great coffee. I use a gold filter, not the paper filters. I think the paper filters make the coffee weak and give it a funny taste. I have never liked paper filters. I like my coffee to taste like it smells, which this coffeemaker does for me. I am extremely pleased with this coffeemaker. I think you have to keep it clean like you would your daily dishes if you want it to last.
