Comment:
I've had this coffee maker for over a year and I'm not impressed with the strength of the coffee it brews. I only use it on weekends when I'm not at work. I like the convenience and ease of use. I've tried different grinds and roast levels of beans but it just doesn't produce the strength of coffee that I like.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months

No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
