I bought this several years ago to replace my very expensive Bunn coffee maker that lasted only a year! And cost almost twice as much! It works as good now as it did the day I bought it! It makes a cup a few cups or twelve cups. Even better than the Keurig! I can program it at at night to be ready for us when we wake up in the morning or for anytime in general! The machine makes it quick if you don't program it in advance. It doesn't make any noise is easy to clean. I've descaled it every month since I bought it.
