Consistently fantastic coffee is produced. Caraf is wide mouthed and easy to clean. Only negatives are that there isn't a readily-available gold filter, and setting is lost if unplugged. Forget that, though. You need this coffee maker
This is a high-quality machine that allows you to brew 1 or 2 servings using your own ground espresso or pre-made coffee pods using the high pressure that is needed to extract true espresso flavor and produce the "crema" (gold slight foam) that is characteristic of excellent espresso coffee, all with the ease of a home machine that doesn't require barista training! It comes with a very useful DVD to give you a quick overview to achieve the best results. All of the needed accesories, including the milk frothing pitcher, are included. This machine offers features that normally cost hundreds more in other models (I love the warming tray on the top to warm my espresso cups!) Its sleek stainless steel design will look great if you have all stainless appliances as I do. It also complements the Cuisinart drip coffee maker that I purchased elsewhere very well. I love it, love using it, and love the hundreds of dollars I will save every month NOT purchasing drinks at Starbucks or Caribou Coffee!
I love the dehydrator. Excalibur is like the gold-standard of dehydrating, in my opinion. This size was perfect for the quantity I wanted to dehydrate. It's large - but it still fits on my counter, under my cabinets.
Very pleased with this macine. Purchased a lesser quality set of pods. Could not tell the difference from the more expensive ones I have tasted. Also, since I am a member of the Gold Club, with rewards I earned, made the cost of this machine almost negliible. Great product and SO GLAD to be a Gold Club member!!
