I finally had to send this back even though it was a great price. First off it was very loud which doesn’t sound like a big problem but when you use the timer in the morning and not everyone in the house needs to get up it can be annoying. Second, on 2 different occasions the coffee ground compartment opened during brewing and made a mess. I did learn that a reconditioned product is just like new this one just had some design flaws. Check it out!
Wake up and smell the coffee! It will be waiting to greet you at whatever time you choose the night before–or in the afternoon before evening company arrives. This Coffee Bar coffeemaker by Cuisinart brings smooth coffee-bar taste home with a special brewing method used in many gourmet cafés and coffee bars: the machine meters out just enough water in the brewing process to extract the rich, full coffee flavor from the grounds–without the bitterness. Of course, using this small amount of water would result in an extremely strong cup of coffee–so the Coffee Bar sends the rest of the water directly into the carafe to ensure perfect full-bodied strength without any bitter acid taste. The specially designed lid minimizes oxygen flow into the carafe, so coffee stays fresher longer. A brew-pause feature stops the flow of coffee when the carafe is lifted so you can sneak a cup before brewing is complete. This stylish machine also features a variable automatic shutoff, a self-cleaning setting with indicator light, adjustable temperature settings, and a large LCD clock. You may never go out for coffee again. –Alison Golder Editor’s note: This is a reconditioned small appliance.

Factory-Reconditioned Cuisinart DCC-270BKFR Coffee Bar Automatic 12-Cup Coffeemaker, Black Review
After reading an endless amount of reviews to find a coffee maker that was both asthetically pleasing as well as functional, I ended up with this machine as my choice. I’m not a huge coffee drinker, although I purchased this machine to brew tea and the occasional cup of coffee when desired. I didn’t feel the need to purchase both an iced tea pot and a coffee maker when it seemed simple enough that one machine could do the work of both. One thing mentioned in previous reviews is the possibility of overflow. Well. . . I can see how one might make this mistake ONCE. I didn’t because I read the reviews. It seems to close and then "snap" into place with an additional slight nudge. Very simple to close all the way. If someone makes this mistake repeatedly, I would begin to question their mental compotency. NOT EVEN CLOSE to being a difficult concept to grasp. I absolutely adore the temperature control because I seem to have a sensitive tongue and can’t tolerate the coffee temperature of most other coffee machines. And that’s even after I add liquid creamer. I know, I know, I’m a whimpy girl. Go figure. I love the design of the handle! It makes the carafe very easy to hold comfortably, regardless of how full it is. I haven’t had any problems with drippage when I pour. Granted it’s common sense to NOT try and pour the entire contents of the carafe into your cup in 2 seconds. The controls seem simple enough to maneuver. Honestly, I have no need for a timer at this time, but I like having the option available to me, should I change my mind in the future. You can even program the auto shut off timer to shut off anywhere between 4 hours and 1 minute if you like. It has a self cleaning feature that I have yet to need/use. The rest of the features are listed in the product specifications, so there are really no need for me to yammer on about every tiny thing it does. I have yet to have even ONE problem with this machine. So, what you really need to know is. . . THAT I LOVE IT!! It works great and like I said before, it’s asthetically pleasing. That’s what you all want to know anyway. . . isn’t it??? -Read Reviews-

Talk about a love hate relationship. This coffee maker brews great coffee. You’ll definitely be wanting to send your old Mr. Coffee off to college with the kids and keeping this one. The ‘coffee bar’ brewing system does indeed improve coffee flavor. The temperature control is a great feature as is the timer control for the hot plate. On the downside, like most prima donnas, this maker can get a bit tempermental. Our first one had an annoying tendency of plugging up and spilling coffee all over the counter. Then it died completely (hate time). We sent it back to Cuisinart who were just superb (love again). They replaced it with a new one and even added a reusable filter. Turnaround time was good and we are back in business. The new maker’s performed flawlessly now for a couple of months. The only problem I now have is that between this maker and the fact that Folger’s now sells their Columbian coffee in bean form I really can’t stand that slop that the office Bunn brews. Oh well, maybe Santa will bring me a really good thermos.
