I make coffee every single day! I love this coffee maker & it's my favorite, even after owning a Keurig! It's very easy to make a pot of coffee & this clever machine stores it inside (no coffee "pot") and keeps it hot for hours! Every month (or two) I clean it by running a cycle of straight vinager through it, then rinse it 2-3 times with straight water. My coffee tastes fresh everyday!
