Mr. Coffee did outdo themselves this time with the introduction of the Mr. Coffee BVMC-PSTX91 Optimal Brew 10-Cup Thermal Coffeemaker. This is the perfect coffeemaker for people who want to experience a great tasting brew at less the time.
Hotter and Faster Coffee
Expect the coffeemaker to brew about 20% faster than the usual time that it would take other coffeemakers. The machine is capable of heating the water up to 205F too, which is necessary towards ensuring that the brews are going to be richer in taste. Brewing 10 cups is going to take a shorter time too, often just below seven minutes. This is an idea time that will help ensure that the flavors from the coffee are properly extracted and to give the brew full-bodied flavor.
Pause ‘n Serve Function
If you are dying to taste the first cup while you are still brewing, you can. There is no need for you to have to finish the brewing cycle before you can pour yourself one. The pause and serve option will allow you to do so.
Water Reservoir that is Removable
Since the water reservoir is removable, this makes it easier for users to add water into the coffeemaker. The water reservoir can be filled at the sink conveniently. Sliding it right back in is going to be easy too.
If you happen to reside on a place where tap water is really subpar in quality, the water filtration option of the device can be very helpful. It is able to reduce the chlorine content of the tap water by up to 97% thus, giving you assurance that your brew is not going to o taste like swimming pool.
The coffeemaker features the easy cleaning cycle. This means that it is now easy to remove any calcium buildup with the help of this special cleaning cycle feature.
Fresh Brew Timer
If you have forgotten when you have brewed the coffee contents in your pot, you no longer have to just keep guessing if it is going to still be fresh when consumed. The coffeemaker comes with a built-in timer for fresh brew. It will be able to tell you if it is high time for you to get another brew or if the current one is still good-tasting enough.
- Has automatic shut off: The beauty of thermal coffeemakers is that they will often have this automatic shut-off feature. This means that if you ever forget to turn it off, you will be at peace knowing that it is not going to burn your house down.
- Thermal pot can be taken anywhere with you: The pot can be carried around wherever you want to carry it to without you having to worry that the coffee will go cold. The coffee will stay hot as if it was still heated and that is even without being placed on top of a heating pad.
- Brew time is very quick: This means that you do not have to wait for a long time before you can start enjoying a sip from your mug. If you are the impatient type, then this is one coffeemaker that will work very well for you.
- Cleaning is easy: The filter basket is removable so cleaning it is going to be easy. The water tank is easy to access too.
- Easy to use controls: If you are to choose a coffeemaker, you have to see to it that the interface is going to be user friendly. It is no use going for one that is intricately designed when it means that you will have a hard time figuring out how the buttons are supposed to work.
- The machine may not reach the optimal brewing temperature: There are some people that have complained about the machine not reaching the optimal brewing temperature which might affect the taste of the brew.
- Carafe is not safe for dishwasher: it is not a good idea to get the carafe washed through the dishwasher as there is a risk that you will end up damaging it.
- The carafe pours slow: People might find that the carafe takes time to pour the contents out. This is to be expected though. The carafe is vacuum sealed, after all to keep the heating ability of the carafe without having to place it on top of a heating plate.
