I bought this coffee maker because it's supposed to be "THE" machine that brews the best coffee at the correct water temperature. I was a little concerned that it was "reconditioned" but took a chance to save a few dollars. It was a really wise decision. As usual with Overstock I received it promplty. I've been too busy to open it but tonight I did. It is brand new in every way, just beautiful, and the coffee was fantastic. I can't believe it came from the same beans as the coffee I had just this morning from my old machine! The taste was so much richer without being bitter! I love, love, love this machine and I'm ordering a second one for my summer home! Thank you again OVERSTOCK!
