This is a fabulious coffee maker and if you love the taste of fresh ground beans this is the way to go. Burr grinders just make coffee taste better than the more common "whirl and beat the bean to death" grinders. However, don't be fooled! After each brew you still must replace the filter, wash the basket and cover as well as replace the water in the resevoir. I say this because one of our employess thought all you had to do is press the button and whalla! Fresh brewed coffee. A great value.
