I loves me some coffee.
My hubby makes my coffee for me every morning.
Isn’t that nice of him?
Before my brand spankin’ new Capresso CM200 coffee maker he would just make it in one of those little plastic things that held a filter that sat on top of my coffee cup. It made acceptable coffee. It was easy.
But then I was given the opportunity to test this beautiful coffee maker.
Isn’t it gorgeous?
And it fits into my new kitchen perfectly.
Now as I said, I don’t make the coffee so it’s really hubby’s opinion I am sharing here. He said it was very easy to use. You just add the ground coffee, add the water and push a button. It’s also programmable so you can set it up the night before if you want. Or if you are having company you can have it all set to brew right after dinner.
He doesn’t program it ’cause he grinds the beans fresh in the morning. He’s fussy about his coffee.
I clean it and it’s a cinch to clean. I also drink the coffee and I will tell you that the coffee is delicious; it’s hot and smooth. I don’t get the bitter aftertaste I was getting with the old method. Yum!
Here is some info straight from Capresso:

I can tell you I am very happy with my new coffee maker. I am enjoying a tasty HOT cup of coffee in the morning and now I can serve coffee to multiple guests! This would make an excellent gift this holiday season. It’s also wonderful that I don’t have to buy paper filters any more – one less thing going into the landfill!
