Great coffee, simple yet elegant machine.
So, after using this product for a while (multiple times daily in a household of coffee drinkers with friends who stop by almost daily for coffee) I can say that this thing makes wonderful coffee and is also very forgiving on your ratio of coffee to water.
The instructions could be a little better, however, a quick call to customer support will answer your questions.
This machine has a simple yet elegant design that uses simple plumbing to bring hot water to the brewing basket. First, you fill the hot water tank as per the first-time setup instructions. Then you put as much cold water into the machine as you want hot water to go into your coffee. You close the lid, which raisers a lever arm that takes a rubber seal off of a hole allowing the cold water to flow into the hot water tank. The hot water is then displaced by the cold water, forcing the exact amount of cold water you put in to come flowing through to your brewing basket, but at 200F.
After learning how this rig works, I was quite impressed with the simplicity of the design given how great a pot of coffee it makes.
I highly recommend 8 "heaping" tablespoons of grounds to 32oz of water. I'm not sure if this ratio is linear, so don't count on it to work 1 : 4 every time, but this ratio has served me and my friends very well.
By the way - on demand 200F water is an EXCELLENT help for doing the dishes when you have something a little stuck on. Just don't put beans or a filter in the brewing basket and pretend like you're making coffee. Handy!
My only complaint is that the carafe doesn't keep the coffee hot as long as a glass lined carafe. Otherwise, this is a great coffee maker. I can have my first cup of coffee in 3 minutes!0 of 0 users found this helpful. Was it helpful to you? Yes | No Report Violation »

The coffee is HOT! It STAYS hot! I will say I purchased a brewer that was twice the price and spent a year dealing with the manufacturer trying to make things right. I gave up and got this Bunn. It is FAST, quiet and the coffee is a perfect temperature, even after adding cream. I also can get hot water for cooking when I need it. I like the idea of a stainless steel water tank and thermal carafe- the water isn't heating in plastic. I also like that it is an American product. There is also no screwing on and off of the carafe lid. Three positions within a quarter turn; on, closed and pour. This is an excellent coffeemaker!0 of 0 users found this helpful.
