There is absolutely no doubt that most of us are dependent on coffee. But can you really blame us? Coffee is simply amazing. We’ve got the classic black coffee, espresso, cappuccino, latte and the list goes on. In fact, you can even drink it cold with ice cream or whipped cream, or hot with chocolate. What we have achieved with the coffee plant is a testament to human ingenuity. No two ways about it.
With all that in mind, we will talk about coffee makers in general and the Capresso MT600 Plus Coffee Maker in particular. We will also look at another coffee maker to help us get some perspective on different coffee maker brands.
Features of Capresso MT600 Plus Coffee Maker
The first thing worthy of mentioning is the finishing of the coffee maker. Most of this coffee maker’s body is made out of stainless steel with fingerprint-proof finishing, which is quite elegant; to be honest. No doubt, the coffee maker is a sight in its own right. You’d be proud just to have this appliance as a kitchen décor —though it does a bit more than most decorative items.
It also has a simple LCD panel with a digital clock and timer displayed on it and offers the ability to preset the brew cycle. Meaning, you can program the coffeemaker to brew a pot of coffee just as you wake up in the morning. This way you don’t have to brew coffee right after you wake up. You can simply pour a freshly brewed coffee into your favorite mug or cup.
The coffee maker contains a coffee filter that has a gold tone as opposed to paper coffee filters. Gold-tone filters are made of stainless steel material and are finished with a gold tone. Unlike paper filters, these are reusable and also help preserve the taste of the coffee. That is because the fine screen filters allow only the pure taste of the coffee to pass through. They are also quite convenient as they are dishwasher friendly, quite easy to clean and can last for years.
With respect to the water filter, the coffee maker also has an electronic filter indicator alert system. The electronic system monitors the water filter and alerts when the charcoal filter needs to be replaced. This means that the filter will be regularly replaced without putting any real thought into it.

The electronic indicator will let you forget about changing the water filter as you can simply rely on the electronic filter indicator. The coffee maker is an absolute delight to have.
Now, let’s compare Capresso Plus to another coffee maker. How about we take a look at Braun BrewSense Coffee Maker, which is similar to Capresso and can serve as a good benchmark for comparison.
A brief look at the coffee maker will show that it offers far more features than Capresso. For example, it has a full LCD screen in the front area. It can keep coffee hot for a number of hours, and it lets you pause and take some coffee out of the pot without spilling any.
However, a deeper look reveals some critical inadequacies in terms of its practical use. For example, a metal pot means you can’t see the coffee inside, making it impossible to measure the amount water you need to put. Its carafe is badly designed and filling it with water can be quite difficult and results in a lot of spillages.
Despite the number of exciting features, Braun BrewSense Coffee Maker fails on the most basic elements of a good coffee maker. Its stainless steel pot might keep the coffee hot, but there is a good reason why we need glass pots. Similarly, its carafe has a design flaw and filling it with water can be a real pain.
With all this is mind, we would recommend that you to give the Capresso MT600 Plus Coffee Maker a second look. It might become your coffee companion for the many years to come. And, we can assure you, it will never let you down.
