Mr. Coffee? Thermal Coffeemaker
When it works, it works well
We had to go through two of these since the first one delivered leaked out the back, but the second one has done an admirable job. The coffee doesn't stay *hot*, but certainly a drinkable temperature - plus a few seconds in the microwave brings it back up to piping.
We don't use the programmable timer feature, but it was easy enough to understand, and the "how old is my coffee" display is kind of nice.
It also looks terribly sleek sitting on the counter, certainly a carafe you'd be willing to have out in the front instead of hiding in the back room.

Best purchase I have ever made
When I bought this coffee pot I didn't realize what a conversation piece it would become. The coffee is the freshest I have ever drank. When my visitors started coming over I would serve a cup of coffee.They love it as well.They have said it is the freshest they ever tasted as well.I am not sure if it is the pot or the filter that makes it taste so good but I have no regrets on buying this pot and several of my friends have went out and bought one too.One friend just had bought a new different pot a few months back went out and bought one like mine. I also have a little dial on the filter to remind me to replace and clean my pot every month so its easy to keep up with.all I can say is Thank You Mr. Coffee I love my pot!!!!!

We bought this for our office couple of months ago. We are very pleased with the machine, makes great coffee and we love the feature that let you know how old is the coffee.

Met and exceeded expectations
So here's the thing, I had to go to a bunch of other sites for reviews on this coffee maker and the reviews were mixed. Many were singing this coffee maker's praises and the ones that didn't were unhappy with it because of leaks and tastes. Many of the people who love this coffee maker were quick to point out that those who didn't like this product were likely not following instructions and that was the reason they were getting less than stellar results.
I decided to take the plunge and purchase the product. When it arrived the next day I followed the directions by running 5 cycles of just water. When I came in this morning to make my first pot of coffee I realized that I had left the last water cycle in the carafe from the day before and the water was still hot, after sitting for over 12 hours! I mean it was hot enough that had that been coffee I wouldn't have felt the need to reheat it in the microwave.
I didn't have any leaks, or messes. The first pot of coffee came out great. I used 7 tbs of grounds for a full pot of coffee and it was the perfect brew strength for my tastes. I did use the water filter.
The coffee is blistering hot when freshly brewed and for at least an hour after. So I suggest you let it cool in your cup for 2-3 minutes before drinking, unless you like having a scalded tongue.
I am very happy with this purchase and look forward to years of great tasting hot coffee and no more money spent replacing broken glass carafes.
