Braun 10-cup Coffee Maker
by Bailing Li
I do not drink coffee regularly. However, I enjoy having one or two cups of coffee on the weekends. I love the smell of the coffee filled in our house. On the weekends, I can just sit there enjoy my coffee without worrying about rushing to work.
I bought my coffee maker a couple of years ago. Since I am not addicted to coffee, I just wanted one that looked good, easy to use, and not too expensive. The one caught my eye was the white Braun 10-cup Coffee Maker at Bed Bath and Beyond. It has the sleek design. The straight-line body makes it chic and elegant. I really like the look. All the other designs are all bulky or heavy looking. The stylish design of Braun makes it not taking much my kitchen counter space. And it is not expensive. I think it was around $20.00
Besides its look, it is also easy to use. The flip-back tank lid and integrated markings inside tank makes it easy for you to pour water in. The pause and serve function allows you to pour a cup of coffee before the entire carafe is brewed. Although it is not fancy, it does make decent coffee. You can smell the aroma in you house when the coffee is made. I love it.
However, for those sophisticated coffee drinkers, this one might not be your choice. It does not have any extra feature other than an on/off button. The carafe does not insulate well and it is expensive to replace. I did have to replace it since I broke one. The cost of carafe is almost the price of the coffee maker.
Overall, I like my Braun 10-cup coffee maker. I just had my coffee made from it this morning. The coffee is good!
