DeLonghi's Drip Coffee Maker features complete frontal access feature to easily fill the water tank and ground coffee filter without moving the unit from under the counter. Open the door using the handle, pour water in the channel and put grounds in the coffee filter. Aroma button activates a unique brewing process that enhances 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 special time-released process saturates grounds a little at a time to extract the best flavor and aroma from your coffee. Permanent gold-tone filter is durable, long-lasting, and specially designed to keep even the finest grounds out of your coffee. 24-hour programmable digital timer with 2 hour automatic shut-off. Also includes water level indicator, pause and serve function, cup storage tray, non-stick warming plate, and cord storage.
