The Little Coffee Maker That Could - Capresso's New 5-Cup "Mini Drip"
The only thing that's small about Capresso's New 5-Cup "Mini Drip" automatic coffee maker is the size.
Its function, reliability and ability to deliver a great cup of coffee is just like the "big guys."
It's been years since I've had a mini coffee maker. Mainly because I was waiting for Capresso to come up with one. It's no secret that I'm a little biased when it comes to Capresso. There's a good reason. Years ago, one of my former co-workers who also had an appreciation and respect for good coffee told me Capresso makes great machines. The lady knew what she was talking about.
To be honest, I didn't expect much from this little guy. It's so lightweight and takes up so little counterspace, I was skeptical to think it could deliver the same great coffee as its "Big Sisters." And it's super stylish.
I was wrong. The hardest part for me was to "tweak" the coffee measurements to make the perfect cup to suit my taste.
Ideal for smaller households and also would work very well in your office. You can't always rely on the "office coffee."
Retail price: 39.99
Available online at Capresso and also at major retailers like Crate and Barrel.
* Two Hour Warming Plate

(Jura Capresso provided me with a free 5-cup mini-drip coffee maker for the purposes of preparing this review which in no way influenced my opinion or hampered my enjoyment)
