Zojirushi's new coffee machine keeps brew hot but makes a bitter pot

Kitchen & Household
[MUSIC] Hi guys, this is Brian Bennet, for CNet appliances, and we are taking and up close look at the Zojirushi Fresh Brew Plus Thermal Carafe coffee maker. For $190, this coffee machine Certainly is on the expensive side but it does have a few pluses that definitely are selling points. First off, you notice that it has a very big water tank right here. What I like about it is that it is removable so that you can just pull the whole up, take it out You know, hold it under your kitchen sink and your tap and just fill it up right there. Or you could just set it on your kitchen countertop and fill it by a pitcher. Then take it, put it back into the machine, no fuss, no muss. It's pretty easy to do. The other really cool thing is that is has a large. Thermal carafe. This carafe actually will keep its coffee hot for well over half a day. I'm talking about 13 or more hours. At 150 degrees which is a pretty piping hot cup of coffee. Zojirushi definitely makes some big claims about this coffee machine. It's part of its gourmet line of cooking products. They also say it reaches the ideal temperature of 200 degrees Fahrenheit, which enables a very flavorful brew, a very Nice and rich cup of coffee. The only problem is, it takes a very long time to actually brew, which means that the coffee's over-extracted and a little bitter for my taste. And that's something you definitely don't want in a coffee machine that costs As much. The Zojirushi Fresh Brew is definitely a decent coffee machine. I just wish it wasn't as expensive. If I could have gotten this thing for $70, that would maybe convince me to make the purchase This, but at $190 it's just extremely expensive. You can buy something from Bonavita such as the BV 1900TS that essentially brews extremely delicious coffee for the same price. That's something I would suggest you do. It, ultimately, is just more enjoyable to use. For more, check out my review of this coffee machine as well as other coffee makers at Cnet.com. I'm Brian Bennet for C Net Appliances.
