Summary: I've had this for about two weeks. I replaced a Mr. Coffee that just simply wasn't producing a very good cup of coffee. I'm picky enough to buy green beans, roast them myself, and grind them to order on a commercial grade grinder. So I do expect good results. The good news is that the coffee maker does do justice to the time and effort I put into the beans. Very smooth tasting. I think a lot of it is due to the "Aroma" setting that stages the water going into the grind.
Summary: We are EXTREMELY disappointed with this coffee maker. It makes good -tasting coffee IF you don't mind -that it's not very hot (heat in microwave) -that you dribble coffee all over the counter every time you pour -that water streams down the back of the machine when you open the lid to remove coffee grounds -that the lid is difficult to close -that coffee drips onto the plate if you remove the pot immediately when it beeps that it's ready These are our complaints after...
Summary: Terrible coffee maker! I don't think I've ever left a bad review anywhere but had to comment on this terrible product. It took 45 minutes to brew a pot of coffee! It also shot steam out from every crevice and almost ruined my kitchen cabinets. The underside of my cabinets were soaked with droplets of water. I didn't save the box so couldn't return it. If I could give a no star review I would. Don't waste your money!

Summary: I bought this coffee maker for "company" as I use a Keurig everyday for myself. My husband and I tested the machine and we loved it. The coffee with the aroma setting takes a little more time to brew but it is worth the wait. The coffee was delicious. I would recommend this coffee maker.
Summary: This is the third DeLonghi coffee maker I've had over MANY years. I just love this drip coffee maker. My coffee consistently tastes great. Helpful hint : keep 3 pennies on the warming plate at all times. The carafe of coffee tastes excellent for a longer period of time before it begins to tase like rot-gut.
Summary: My wife and I had two others before this. They usually last about 5-6 years. The coffee is amazing. It brews at the right temp and the you would think it is a much more expensive machine. When our last one began to leak, I decided to get a more expensive model. BAD IDEA. After 3 months my wife and I had enough. We got rid of the other model and went back to our DeLonghi. NEVER AGAIN WILL WE STRAY.
Summary: So close, but yet so far! The best built of the last few we've been forced to try. The blue lit readout is very annoying. We cover it up every day! The designers apparently never used it, since the lid drips a couple teaspoons of water from condensation on the lid when you lift it up. Every day we have to spunge that up. The cup readings in the reservoir are not the same as what you get from the pot, but that's not a big deal.
I ordered it from Amazon and got it for a really good price with free shipping

Summary: I tried to search on the Internet for a coffee maker that made delicious coffee. Since this one was higher rated for coffee taste and affordable, I ordered it from Amazon and got it for a really good price with free shipping. It was packed well, easy to set up, and if I make sure to grind the coffee to a drip grind, not too fine, the coffee tastes really good. I recommend this coffee maker.
