I am one to really enjoy a good cup of coffee. I especially like coffee in mornings when I get up. However, sometimes there is not time to wait on the coffee pot to churn out the coffee. Other times, I really don’t want to wait! The Black and Decker 12 Cup Coffee Maker solved my early morning coffee problems.

There is a terrific timer on the Black and Decker 12 Cup Coffee Maker. I like to set the timer before I go to bed at night. The pot will turn on automatically. The entire kitchen fills with the smell of fresh coffee before I even roll out of bed.

Typically, I set the timer to make a pot of coffee for my husband. He works quite a bit earlier than I do. He just refills the water. He will reset the timer for a couple hours later when I roll out of bed. It’s wonderful to have the Black and Decker 12 Cup Coffee Maker. It is like having a personal coffee chef in the house.

I will often set the timer when I have guests over for dinner. I don’t have to worry about remembering to go start a pot of coffee. Everything is automatic. By the time we are eating dessert or just relaxing, the Black and Decker 12 Cup Coffee Maker has done all the work. I can offer everyone a fresh cup of decaffeinated coffee.

I have had other coffee makers that the coffee just tasted poorly or different when I brewed them. It would be the same coffee as I have always used. I have tried cleaning the machines. I have tried filtering the water. The good news is that the Black and Decker 12 Cup Coffee Maker has always brewed me a fresh cup of coffee that has plenty of good flavor.

The only thing that I have an issue with for the Black and Decker 12 Cup Coffee Maker is the actual pot that the brewed coffee goes into. For some reason, every time that I try to fill the back of the Black and Decker 12 Cup Coffee Maker water area with the pot, I end up with water everywhere. I have tried pouring at different speeds. I still end up with water everywhere. I solved the problem by using a tea pitcher to fill the back of the Black and Decker 12 Cup Coffee Maker to the water line.

I love the automatic shut off feature of the Black and Decker 12 Cup Coffee Maker. It is like having aliens in my coffee pot. Not only will they brew me a pot of coffee at a specific time, they will remember to shut the Black and Decker 12 Cup Coffee Maker off for me!
