"Very effective all in one machine"
Pros: Value for money, all in one
Cons: manual turn off
"In short this does the job that I wanted it to do.
Either be able to grind my own beans or put in grounded coffee to make a fresh pot easily.
It is fairly simple to use although not as easy as it could be and the instructions could be improved.
The automatic function is great. The key bit of information to know and not in the instructions is that the machine does not switch automatically off so it will use however, much water is in the machine or until switched off. The hot plate remains on only when the process is on.
So in short, if you selected 2 cups to be brewed, the machine will grind enough beans for 2 cups, will also adjust the filtering speed to ensure the right intensity but you need to make sure that either you only put 2 cups full of water in the machine or turn it off once 2 cups worth are in the pot. Otherwise, the remaining water will be used and it will weaken the coffee.
That is the only negative and otherwise is very straight forward machine."
