Melitta Mill & Brew MEMB1

by Abi

I received this coffee maker as a Christmas present from my husband when we were just dating 6 years ago. It is absolutely the best coffee maker I have ever owned. After 6 years of using it everyday, it still works like I just got it.

The best feature of this coffee maker is the grinder. Nothing tastes better than coffee made from freshly ground beans. The grinder has various settings so you can easily control the fineness or coarseness of your coffee grounds.

It also has a built-in timer. You can easily set everything up before bed and then wake up to the wonderful aroma of freshly brewed coffee in the morning.

This coffee maker also has a drip stop. No more waiting for the machine to finish brewing a whole pot before you can pour yourself a cup!

My MEMB1 caught on fire
by: Ted

I had a Melitta MEMB1 and it made great coffee, it also made a great fire in my kitchen. It started blazing one afternoon when it was just sitting there not even brewing or anything. It was just plugged in and the clock was working.

The fire caused considerable damage in the kitchen and smoke damage elsewhere. As of yet Melitta has not paid for a thing and almost seem indifferent. I don't know if this has happened a lot, but I would sure like to find that out.

Lasted five years

1. Melitta Mill and Brew 2. 4/5 3. My machine lasted five years (using it at least once a day) until the mesh filter started to wear out and letting grounds into the coffee. However, I liked this coffee maker so much that I replaced it with another identical one.

Maybe the coffee it makes is not the strongest but it is just right for me. You can try different beans or putting ground coffee into the maker to get the brew stronger.

One thing that I don't like is that the heat pad switches off after an hour --- I'd prefer it to stay on for at least another hour or two
