- GREAT Coffee! Review by Mitchell
I am loving this unit. Coffee is great. I like that I can make a batch and store in my refrigerator. Great Iced Coffee or Hot Coffee ready at a moments notice. No evidence of any acid or aftertaste. And - it looks cool. It's almost hypnotic to watch. The novelty does wear off, but friends dropping by, really are intrigued.
My only disappointments are documentation, filter quantities per pack, and filter pricing vs. the larger unit filter options.
The documentation, or lack there of, provides no suggested rations of coffee to water. There is a reference to using for tea, but again, no information. As a result everything is trial and error. At six hours per pot, it takes a significant amount of time to find the magic ratio.
The second issue is the filters. These little discs are stupid expensive. They only come 20 per pack and each pack is $9 or $0.45/filter. For the larger 25 cup unit they have a 100 pack for $0.95/100 which is less than a penny per filter. Why should the small filter only be available in a 20 pack for 45 times the price of the filters for the larger unit? $45/100 vs. 95¢/100!
Yama needs to be a bit more consumer friendly. While I will continue to enjoy this unit, I will make sure my friends understand Yama's lack of consumer friendliness.
