After not wanting to get out of bed for some time, I decided I needed something to tempt me out. The Braun KP 187 certainly does that and more. The build quality is certainly top notch. It is quite a small coffee machine but still holds around ten to eleven cups.
It is very reliable, and hasn't broken down or not worked once since I've got it. It is very simple to use, it shuts off automatically and has adjustable temperature control so it's never been easier to make a warm cup of coffee.
One of the best features is the digital clock and timer. So not only do you get a coffee machine, but a digital clock and alarm too. The beep isn't very loud but the smell of coffee soon tempts my senses and I try to get up straight away (not always though).
The water filter is another great feature. If you use tap water to make your coffee, the water filter is supposed to reduce chlorine for more flavorful coffee, and yes, I can taste the difference (if only slightly).
Cleaning is incredibly easy to do. The 12-cup can be taken out and washed normally and the black glossy is quick to clean with a cloth.
