I picked up this coffee pot because it was on sale and I was impressed with the price. I figured it would be good enough until I found the one I really wanted. The next morning I was blown away with the exceptional taste of my coffee. It works masterfully and the 12 cup brewing capacity is exactly what I need. I love that it is easily programable, no more waiting on coffee in the morning. I woke up and it was already perfectly brewed. It had multiple brewing options which comes in handy when I need it to be strong to get going. This is a wonderful coffee pot for the price and I would recommend it to anyone.
