Let’s take a look at the 4 cup coffee maker, the Mr. Coffee DRX5. This is the Mr. Coffee 4 cup coffee maker review of their DRX5. I prefer to review one coffee maker at a time rather than a bunch. You can get into a bit more detail that way. First off, if you want to buy a cheap 4 cup coffee maker then I don’t think you can do much better than this. At an incredibly low 20 bucks or so, this is one of the cheapest programable coffee makers I’ve seen, let along a 4 cup coffee machine.
Now some folks get scared when they see how inexpensive a 4 cup coffee maker by Mr. Coffee can be. But for 20 bucks, you could buy the Mr. Coffee DRX5 every year and still do well. Regardless, I know you’ll get at least a year out of your Mr. Coffee coffee maker because they have a 1 year warranty. And let’s face it, very few things break down within their warranty period. So I would feel confident that I could use my Mr. Coffee maker for a good couple or maybe 3 years.
Mr. Coffee has been making coffee makers for home use for around 40 years or so. They’re a reliable brand of coffee makers and in my experience make cheap coffee makers that last as long as others 2 or 3 times their price. If you live alone or perhaps you’re a childless couple, then this 4 cup coffee maker is ideally suited to your needs. Not only does 4 cups brew quicker than 12 cups of coffee, but you don’t have to guess too much about how much to make. Fill the pot, brew it, and drink it. Couldn’t be easier.
Here are some of the features of the Mr. Coffee 4 cup programmable coffee machine:
- On/off indicator light takes the guesswork out of knowing if your coffee is fresh or old
- The filter is removable for easy cleaning and filling
- Brew ‘n pause feature when you’ve just gotta have that coffee asap
- 2 water windows to show you how much water you’ve added
- Ample space for storing the cord to keep your counter uncluttered
The Mr. Coffee coffee machine DRX5 is a fully programmable coffee maker so you can set your coffee for the morning. I won’t buy a coffee maker that doesn’t have this feature anymore. Sometimes I’m just too groggy in the morning and I want to start right off with my coffee and paper. I can’t count the number of times I’ve broken glass coffee carafes while still in my morning fog and fumbling around to make my morning brew.
Here is what one satisfied customer had to say of their Mr. Coffee DRX5 coffee maker:
I’ve been using my Mr. Coffee DRX5 coffee maker for eight months now and I really like it. Overall, this is a great little unit and it has inspired others in my office to purchase this model as well. Two year follow-up and the DRX5 is still working great. The clock gains maybe a minute per year if that. – Tetsu U.
