Make great coffee from either beans or ready ground coffee. Especially good from beans as you get that lovely freshly ground smell throughout the house. It makes up to 10 cups of coffee and needs no paper filters. All parts are washable and really easy to clean. It has an auto feature so you can program it to produce coffee when you want so perfect for that early morning cuppa. It comes into its own at Christmas when you can program it to brew just as dinner is finishing. This is in excellent condition as we hardly used it as we are more tea drinkers. It doesnt have a heated plate to keep your coffee warm but the jug is really well insulated. If you fill the reservoir with hot water (rather than cold) the jug keeps the coffee hot for hours.
