Advantages

Coffee lovers will be enthralled with the dark and rich blends of its Italian style brewing process. It?s an investment for anyone who enjoys ?authentic?, naturally made coffee that brings out all the beans? organic flavors. It?s a practical alternative to buying coffee from Starbucks or other expensive on-the-go caffeine brands.

The model?s weight is not too heavy, weighing about 6.5 lbs. Most purchases come with a one year warranty. Cleaning only requires the use of mild soap and water. The filter used is paper, coming with 100 pieces for each purchase.

Disadvantages

The model doesn?t come with a removable water tank or built-in grinder. This may be a problem for some with specific coffee brewing needs. There?s also no cup warming plate, an extra addition you?d expect with its high price.

The F468 focuses more on making your coffee and doesn?t include convenient features such as cord storage, strength settings, a pause-and-serve function, or timer. If you?re looking for a model with programmed schedule features, then this model isn?t for you.
