The first one I purchased was upon recommendation from a specialty store. The second one I purchased was from this site as it was
the best price I could find. I then purchased a third Capresso from 1st in Coffee for my daughter and son-in-law because every time they would visit my son-in-law would tell me that I always made "the best coffee ever!" I would have to agree because this is the best coffee maker I have ever had and I first started using it in 1996 and I am only on my second one. I use the timer every night and no matter what type of coffee I purchase (although I always purchase my coffee from a local coffee shop) it consistently tastes and smells wonderful.
This is the best coffee maker on the market, period. Coffee is perfectly brewed, stays hot in the carafe, and is very nicely designed. If mine ever wears out am getting g another one....
I've had mine for over 5 years and it still makes coffee as good as the day I unpacked it!!
I love this coffee maker and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for really
hot, perfectly brewed coffee and, the stainless pot keeps it warm for hours.
