Capresso MT600 PLUS
This machine gets the water hot enough to make a full-flavored cup of coffee. It has a stainless steel thermal carafe that pours well without dripping. It looks great. Like most thermal carafes it does not do great job of keeping the coffe hot for long. What looks like black plastic in the photos is really some sort of very hard black composit material. The water does NOT run through plastic tubing. The machine has a stainless steel-lined heating system. I've had my machine for two years and it still looks like new and more importantly works like new.
