I have been a coffee drinker all my life and used just about every type of coffee brewer there was on the market at the time, so when my son got me the Hamilton Beach Brewstation for Christmas this past year, you can imagine what a wonderful gift this was for me.
In the summer months it is common for me to drink about 1 pot per day, because I had rather drink water in the hot weather, but when the cold weather sets in, a hot cup of coffee can always be found in my home... Which results in several pots of coffee being made each and every day.
I wanted to be sure I had "Tested" this coffee maker before I wrote any review on it so I could actually give my honest opinion to it's performance... I am happy to say that I am very pleased with it features as well as performance !
The 10 cup capacity is ideal for my needs as well as the timer that turns the Hamilton Beach Brewstation off after a 2 hour period, so I don't have to worry whether or not I have turned the coffee maker off when I have gone away from home longer than expected. Another great feature is the timer... I can set up the Hamilton Beach Brewstation the night before to wake up to a fresh pot of coffee without fumbling around trying to get my coffee started before I am fully awake !
The Hamilton Beach Brewstation uses a dispensing system which eliminates the glass pot normally associated with coffee makers, so I don't have to worry about breaking the glass pot by accidentally dropping it or some other mishap, and I am able to draw a cup of coffee before the entire pot is brewed. I think this is one of the better coffee makers I have ever owned and highly recommend it to anyone in the market for a new coffee making system.
