Krups KM4065 Programmable 12 Cup Coffee Maker
Krups’ KM4065 is a smaller but equally advanced version of the other automatic drip machine models. Major features include a 12-cup maximum capacity, a built-in water filter, and an auto shut off option.
Coffee addicts with busy schedules can set the programs on this model, taking out the worry of having no caffeine fuel for the next day. Let’s take a look at some of this coffee maker's various features and what each detail has to offer.
- Krups' KM4065 has an idiot-friendly control panel, which is very easy to navigate and figure out, thanks to its button-heavy features. Consumers not used to touch screen will benefit from this feature.
- The LCD screen is clear and easy to read, thanks to the black on white display. The contrast is high, enabling users to quickly understand the menu options available.
- The control panel is the first thing you will see, thanks to its front angle and location on top of the coffee pot.
- Coffee is well-brewed using a cycle that brings out the coffee’s full flavor. You’ll definitely be waking up to the sweet and sensual smell of caffeine in the morning.
- The whole machine is made of brushed stainless steel.
- The stainless steel makeup is complemented by carbon grey trim.
KM4065’s main advantage is its easy to use control panel. On the go coffee drinkers won’t have to worry about having no coffee in the morning by programming the brew time accordingly. Consumers
won’t have to worry about bad-tasting coffee either, thanks to the advanced brewing cycle and the built-in water filter.
These two aspects work hand in hand to ensure you have amazing coffee to wake you up in the morning. This is definitely the machine for a coffee snob who can’t stand badly brewed coffee sold in commercial stores. You can keep the coffee’s heat for about one to two hours using the 12-cup glass carafe settings. Coffee grounds are readily removed with the auto lift brew basket.
The main disadvantage to this model is its price. For such a high cost, the model doesn’t include a thermal carafe. Some people may have difficulty understanding the program settings. This makes the model more suitable for younger generations used to technology.
Otherwise, you may have an easier time using a manually set coffee machine. The carafe is quite light, and you have to be careful with its flimsy cover. Handle the outer steel material with care, as too much pressing will cause fingerprints. Pros
- the design is sleek and goes well with any kind of kitchen decor
- top door opens efficiently and has a stable design
- four filters are used, ensuring the water applied to your coffee is clean and brings out the beans’ full flavor
- carafe pours coffee into the cup smoothly, without spillingCons
- programmed functions need to be studied well before being assigned
- carafe has a weak cover.
- main button doesn’t deliver in terms of durability.
