This review is coming from a coffee snob, that brews using a manual melitta. The coffee takes entirely too long to brew. It took 12 minutes for a full pot. As a result, the coffee is bitter. In order for coffee to not become bitter, it needs to brew in five minutes time.
Other than that, it did work ok, the thermos kept the coffee hot. I did return it though. I'm going back to manual brewing.

I'm very impressed with the Fagor Multi Cooker. In one day I made short ribs, beef goulash, and brown rice. Really I made them all in half a day. What a pleasure, and all came out great. I thought of pressure cookers as my grandmothers tool. It's really state of the art, easy to use. Only con is the bottom surface area is a little small. I should have gotten the next size up if they make it.
