I am a coffee snob. I like good coffee. Do not interrupt me when I am enjoying my coffee in the morning. Even Morgan knows that.
After much time sitting at the computer going through coffee maker reviews and talking to a few people, I chose the Kitchen Aid 12 cup thermal coffee maker. "Thermal?"
How can a metal container keep coffee warm without a warming plate underneath. "I would never go back to a glass pot," someone wrote on my Facebook page.
This morning I enjoyed my first three cups of coffee from this wonderful machine! There really is a difference in coffee makers. Suddenly I was sitting in a 5 star restaurant enjoying a truly remarkable cup of coffee. . . okay, I was really sitting on the couch in my cozy robe and slippers with Morgan in my lap.
May God grant that this coffee maker lasts as long as I do!
The features I like about it:
- removable water tank for easy cleaning
- two settings for either regular or bold taste (I chose BOLD!)
- easy programming capabilities
- well constructed, thick pot
- it can be programmed to turn on anytime (good feature for weekdays)
If I had to choose one less-than-desirable thing about it, it would be it's size. It borders on "massive!" That is a small price to pay for the results.
