Capresso MT900 10-Cup Rapid Brew Coffee Maker
Capresso MT900 (Model 498.05) is a modern stainless steel coffee maker with a thermal carafe, a 1200 watt power motor (120V and 60Hz) and special heating system that helps make 10 cups of very tasty coffee in less than 7 minutes- less than one minute for each cup of coffee that will not be bitter or overdone as the time spent extracting is crucial for the final result. It is an improved version of the regular traditional auto drip coffee brewers, has a beautiful design and stainless steel makes it look good and feel very solid and sturdy. The special heating system that is stainless steel-lined means there will not be any contact with aluminium, you will get much purer brews of coffee and you will not need to decalcify. You will not need to use any paper filters as the included reusable goldtone filter is easy to use and clean after use. The clear water reservoir with a 50 ounce capacity is located at the rear of the brewer and is detachable for conveniently being refilled with water and you can see how much water is left inside as it is visible. It manages to deliver great tasting coffee with a clean and rich flavour and lovely aroma. Flavour from coffee will be extracted to the maximum as the grounds are saturated evenly and completely by the very large shower head. You can program it for up to 24 hours through the built-in timer and clock with an LCD display and includes an auto shut-off function for two hours and also the automatic shut-off for security purposes after brewing.
Capresso MT900 weighs 8.1 pounds and measures 15.8 x 11.8 x 10.2 inches, looks sleek, pretty and professional in stainless steel and black (and it is real stainless steel housing with clear water tank at the rear top). Drip stop feature is good for being able to pour coffee into a cup when brewing process is still on. You can even press a special button- the half brew setting to make it extract max taste and aroma when you’re making up to 5 cups of coffee and this way you will have increased the brew cycle. It includes a charcoal water filter with a digital indicator that tells you when it is time to change it. There is a digital counter that shows how many cups of coffee have been made which can be quite handy and you will also be notified by a light blinking when you need to change the charcoal filter- just make sure you change it every six weeks or if the light comes on earlier than 6 weeks. It will maintain the set program during 10 seconds after the power cut and as a UL listed product it is approved for safe use. You will get a warm and fresh coffee every single time thanks to the thermal carafe and non-stick heating plate. At the lower price point for such a premium looking and feeling product, you really can’t go wrong if you are on the market for an advanced auto-drip coffee brewer. It is made in China which is no indication of its level of quality- most products are made in China these days and comes with a year limited warranty by the manufacturer.
