the coffemake shut off after brewing and the coffe is cold after one hour. it is black in color which is good but a poor excuse for a coffee maker. It is advested to keep coffee hot and pause during brewing, but does neither one. Where can I get a better product? I had a coffemaker that was plain and simple and it kept the coffee hot for hours. I would not recommend this cafee to anyone. It is for show and not for everyday use.
