I bought this machine nearly a month ago on the strength of it's specifications and the reviews I read. The grinder is no more noisy than the electric grinder I used before. It brews a hot carafe of coffee quickly, and the hot plate really keeps my “top up” hot. The “1-4 cup option” works well if you only need a small amount. I had to experiment to get the right strength of coffee, depending on the beans used. This is a first rate, compact, easy to use machine. It is easy to clean and a bargain at the price!
