Hamilton Beach Compliment - Deluxe Coffeemaker - A better "mouse trap"
For years I'd been happy enough with my B&D coffeemaker - a knockoff of Mr. Coffee. I mean, after all, you pour water in the top, it gets hot, goes through the grounds and "makes" coffee. Evidently, Santa wanted me to upgrade so he brought me the Hamilton Beach BrewStation® Deluxe 12 Cup Coffeemaker.
At a price of around 80.00, I told Santa he was NUTS! After all, my reliable and worn coffee maker still worked! The jolly old elf wagged a knowing finger at me, winked and tossed my old machine in the trash. I unpacked this new space aged looking thing - sorta resembling Robby the Robot.
What a difference - I must say. This wonder truly "brews" the coffee - it doesn't just cook it. It's a one-hand operation dispenser that keeps your coffee piping hot for up to 4 hours - all while the coffee stays in an enclosed heated chamber. The water you supply goes through a water filter before brewing - not sure if that is a genuine benefit or not.
Of course it comes with an auto timer - the thing really looks slick and works great! It seems to make even average coffee taste a whole lot better!
An 80.00 coffee maker may seem like an extravagance - and it is, but this one is so worth it. Save the cheaper ones for wedding presents - get this device and start enjoying your morning coffee again!
