We like our coffee so this was a natural for us. I’ve been passing on them for ages because they seemed too fussy and inconvenient. They do make good coffee. This one is a Mueller. It is well built and should last a good while. We are still experimenting with timing and the coffee/water ratio but we’re closing in on what we like. Still, it is fussy and inconvenient. The grounds are kept out of the coffee pour but it delivers a good load of silt. I have another style of coffee maker coming, one that you pour the water over the grounds in a filter. We’ll see if that works better for us.
