Capresso CM200 Automatic Coffee Maker

It's easy to see why the Capresso CM200 Coffee Maker won the 2010 Good Design Award. It looks like it should be sitting on a granite counter in a trendy loft in Soho. Except I don't have a trendy loft in Soho. But I do have a Capresso CM200. Its sleek design hardly takes up any space on my counter. And, as you know, with all the coffee "apparti" I have, space is in short supply. But thanks to Capresso, good coffee is just a pot away!

(Capresso provided me with the CM200 for the purposes of preparing this review which in no way impacts my opinion or the fact that this coffee maker performs and looks like one that costs three times as much!)


  1. Wow!!! This coffee maker sounds like just what I've been looking for. I've used my old Cuisinart for over 8 years and have been looking for a limited-counter-space-friendly model. The price is just in my range and the design is beautiful and sleek. Thanks for the tip. I will check w/Bloomies today to see if they carry this machine. Happy Perking!
