DeLonghi's 14-cup DC312T drop coffee maker has the unique aroma button that activates a brewing process to enhance the flavor and aroma of your coffee. To achieve this full-bodied flavor, the coffee maker advances through several continuous cycles. During the cycles, water is released into the filter basket in 30-second intervals. This allows the grounds to be saturated a little at a time to extract the best flavor and aroma from your coffee. The coffee maker also includes a 24-hour programmable timer, a durable and easy to clean nylon filter as well as cord storage.
