Summary: Makes a really great pot of coffee! Especially if you use the "aroma" setting I've decided that on this setting it takes a little less coffee than normal because of the more thorough way the water goes through.
Summary: OK, I've used DeLonghi Coffee makers for 20 years or more. Previously they were my standard for good coffee and reliable performance. Not any more. The old models always lasted at LEAST 2 years, at which point I typically retired them for a new one.

Summary: We had this same coffee maker for at least 5 years and loved it. So when it finally stopped working after 5 years of daily use, we bought the same one. Well, this one is terrible. It makes the coffee just fine, but the pot leaks constantly when you pour.
Summary: I purchased this coffee pot because the front loading feature for both coffee and water. The carafe is the worst designed we've ever had. It leaks when pouring either coffee or water. Do not buy this product. You'll be very disappointed if you do.
Summary: Purchased this coffee maker March 1st 2015. In mid July it started leaking water from underneath the machine every time a pot is brewed! Not just a little water but enough to saturate an entire cloth dish towel. Unfortunately the return policy no longer covers this purchase.
Summary: I am going to try and return this item as it does not stop the brewing coffee from pouring out when the pot is removed to pour a cup while it is brewing... I've had two of these Delonghi coffee stations and they worked properly. Hope this one is just a defect.
Summary: Hubby purchased this coffee maker and the coffee was wonderful, for 6 months. It stopped working March 13, 2014 We received a replacement machine and it brewed great coffee but again, on March 11, 2015, almost a year to the date of the previous coffee maker's demise, this one died.
