So, I decided to review this Black & Decker DCM600W 5-Cup Drip Coffeemaker because it is basic, inexpensive and it does what it’s supposed to.
Amazon LINK TO Black & Decker Coffeemaker: http://amzn.to/1bP93Ir It’s super compact and takes up hardly any space on your counter top. It’s about 11 inches tall.There is one red button to turn the unit on and off. There is no beep to let you know that the coffee is done brewing. There is a removable filter basket. You can use paper filters or a permanent basket filter. The glass carafe holds 5 cups. Here are the two cups I use for coffee every morning. They hold about 12 ounces each. I fill water up to the 3 cups to make 2 cups of coffee. 3 cups is about 16 ounces in the pot. There is a window to see how much water is filled.
It’s very easy to clean, the basket comes out with ease and so does the glass carafe. It brews a good cup of coffee and all the coffee grinds are wet which means the water went through it. So far, there’s been no dripping or leaking from the pot.
What impressed me about the black and decker coffee maker most is that it brews a really good cup of tea. I’ll show you how to make chai with this simple recipe. Usually, you’ll boil milk, tea leaves and spices in a pot and strain it all to make chai. This saves you from washing a pot and strainer. Put tea leaves, cinnamon, ground cloves and ground cardamom in a filter. Heat milk in your cup and pour into carafe. Brew and you have delicious chai in a few minutes.
