Product Review: Mr. Coffee 12-Cup Coffeemaker with Brew Strength Selector
My coffeemaker had bit the dust after many years of good service -- and good coffee. The feature on it that I had enjoyed most of all, besides being a 12-cup model, was something called a Brew Strength Selector.
I enjoy a full-bodied cup of coffee and was happy that I could instruct the coffeemaker to brew it "strong" for me. What this resulted in was the coffeemaker brewing the coffee a bit more slowly than it would otherwise, meaning more flavor was extracted from the coffee grounds.
I soon came to find that I could use less coffee than I normally would when I used the "Strong" setting and still have great flavor. (I could get an extra two pots overall from a can of coffee.)
Happily, Mr. Coffee still makes a model with the Brew Strength Indicator, another 12-cup model, that is also programmable and has a Cleaning cycle, too. I found mine for a price of less than $25.00.
The "Strong" setting on this coffeemaker produces the same rich flavored coffee I enjoyed with the previous unit.
