    THIS IS THE LATEST AND GREATEST MODEL Several weeks ago,my Cuisinart 12 coffeemaker poured out it’s last cup of coffee. I purchased the DCC 2650 because of the fast brew, visual water table and appearance. I want you to know I had a model many years ago and when it retired; I purchased another upscale brand which let me down. The purchase of Cuisinart is based on the ability of cuisinart designers who build a better machine. This is way easier for me because I love to be able to to see the level of the water from the outside. Actually, that feature has been on my wish list for cuisinart. The button plaement on the top around the clock is functional and easy to use.The reg or bold button works like a dream and the pot stays on for four hours which I prefer to other coffemakers which shut down after 2 or 3 hrs. I do not use the auto turn on or the grab it quick cup feature. I like the carafe heat temp on the right which allows a person to have warm to very hot coffee. I purchased the burr grinder from cuisinart. I replaced the cuisinart blade grinder and believe me this machine is a great companion to this coffeemaker. Now, I would never tell anyone how to spend their money but if you are on the fence, GO FOR IT!

    So Far, So Great As did many other people, I really struggled to choose a new coffee maker once my 10yo Krups Aroma Control went toes up. I’ve only had this coffeemaker for a few days, but so far, I’m very satisfied with this purchase.First, it’s a handsome machine that’s easy to clean. (“No more rhymes now, I mean it….”) I’m not sure if it’s made of coated real metal or a plastic faux metal. Either way, it’s a nice-looking machine that complements our other stainless steel appliances, and it’s easy to wipe off fingerprints, etc. It also fits underneath our cabinets.Second, in the Amazon reviews of various coffeemakers, there’s a lot of talk about whether the coffeemakers produce hot coffee. Those comments weren’t very helpful to me, because I never knew what the users meant by “hot.” So, I’ve measured and quantified the temperatures for you: [a] At the time that this coffeemaker is done brewing, the coffee has consistently been about 175 degrees F. To me, that’s plenty hot. [b] When the hotplate is set to M, the coffee has consistently been 160 degrees F, which is exactly the temperature at which I prefer my coffee. [c] When the hotplate is set to H, the coffee has consistently been just under 180 degrees F. [d] I haven’t tried to set the hotplate to L, because the coffee would presumably be less than 160 degrees F, which isn’t as hot as I’d like.Third, the machine has produced good coffee. Much better than my Krups Aroma Control, and comparable to what you’d get at a coffee house. (I don’t have a grinder, so I have my coffee pre-ground, which can affect the taste a bit.)Fourth, I can unquestionably taste the difference between the bold setting and the regular setting. I did a little taste test using exactly the same coffee, exactly the same amount of coffee, and exactly the same amount of water. And, there’s zero question that the bold setting produced noticeably bolder coffee.Fifth, it’s a user-friendly machine that’s easy to set up, program, and use. The auto-brew feature, brew-pause feature, and auto-off feature have worked as advertised. Initially, the toughest part of using this machine was trying to figure out how to remove the lid from the carafe. :)Sixth, the machine beeps five times when it’s done brewing. In my view, the beep isn’t unduly loud or obnoxious: It’s loud enough that when I’ve auto programmed the machine, I can faintly hear it in our bedroom on the opposite side of the house. However, it isn’t loud enough to wake our baby (whose room is directly above the machine) or freak out our cat — and when I’m in the kitchen, the beeping hasn’t yet struck me as being too annoying. That said, I’m not sure why it isn’t possible to turn the beep off, and I’m not sure why they chose five beeps instead of just one, two, or three.Seventh, the machine brews reasonably quickly. I usually brew 6 cups of coffee — which yields two “real cups.” From the time that I hit the “on” button until the fifth beep signal, it has taken about 6 minutes.Hope this helps, and best of luck with your decision.

    Not worth the extra $$ My venerable DCC-1200 Cuisinart died so thought I’d try this one out as it appeared to be a newer/upgraded version of the 1200 and that’s how I’m approaching this review. As I write the 2650 is $20 more than the 1200. It’s a nice coffeemaker, does what it’s supposed to and does it as good as the the 1200, but not worth the extra $20 in my opinion.The good:- I like the new overall look of the design though there’s something to be said for the “classic” look of the 1200.- The lift lid to access the cone filter doesn’t drip condensation all over the counter behind the unit when you open the lid to toss the previous brews grounds/filter like the 1200. Haven’t noticed much dripping anyway but what little there is it keeps self-contained.- Uses the same carafe as the 1200 (and I image many other Cuisinart models).- Seems to brew a bit faster than the 1200. Haven’t timed it but wouldn’t call it “extreme”, whatever that means (see below).The not so good:- Don’t be fooled by the stainless steel looking exterior. It looks nice but is plastic, not real metal like the 1200.- Overall feels “cheaper” than the 1200 (which has a good solid feel to it).- The brew strength selector (regular or bold) seems to make no difference, at least that I can taste to this point.- From a brewing function standpoint the only thing different than the 1200 is the strength selector.- Haven’t done an official measurement but the “hot” setting doesn’t seem as hot as the same setting on the 1200. I could be wrong on this (my wife still has her 1200 – will update review if I ever do an official measurement).- Maybe I’m just getting old but I find the bolded black text “Extreme Brew” proclamation on the front of the unit (under the properly muted Cuisinart logo) very annoying and if I can find a way to scrub it off without marring the surface I will. What’s so “extreme” about brewing coffee? Yes I know they’re trying to draw attention that it supposedly brews a bit faster than other units, but come on. Ruins the clean lines of the design in my opinion.Neither good nor bad:- Water level view window on the side. Don’t really care much about that since I know exactly how much I’m putting in already but imagine others will like that.- The cone filter holder is totally different from the 1200. Still takes the same style filters but holds it differently. Not sure if it’s any better but it does the job.Overall a good coffeemaker, but if I had it to do over again I’d buy another 1200 model and spend the $20 I saved on some good coffee. 4 stars overall, minus 1 for points mentioned above.
