Additional Information

This Optimal Brew™ Coffee Maker uses the artisan-style technique of "blooming" to saturate coffee grounds before brewing. The blooming process happens at the start of the brewing cycle to help extract the fullest flavor from the grounds. When combined with a high brew temperature of up to 205° and faster brew speed, the result is nothing short of exceptional tasting coffee. Double-walled, stainless steel thermal carafe holds that fresh flavor and temperature, without a warming plate, to maintain coffee's true character and taste. Plus, all the programmable conveniences are included, like Delay Brew to stir your senses as you wake up to aromatic, freshly-brewed coffee and Grab-A-Cup Auto Pause, for that rich-tasting cup you may need before the brew cycle finishes. Be sure to use the included Water Filtration disk to filter out chlorine and impurities from water during brewing so you can enjoy better taste as it's meant to be. Experience the taste™ with the Mr. Coffee® brand.

  • Delay Brew timer sets brew time ahead so you can wake up to fresh-brewed coffee
  • Freshness Timer keeps a tab on coffee freshness from the time it's brewed
  • Brew Meter measures how much coffee is in the carafe so you don't have to guess

Mr. Coffee® Optimal Brew™ 12-Cup Programmable Coffee Maker with Thermal Carafe is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 120.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Coffee Maker! Very Easy To Use! This machine is very easy to use, and the carafe kept my coffee hot for over 6 hours!. I especially liked the feature that allows you to pour a cup of coffee before the whole pot is finished brewing. I had one small issue with the carafe. At the separation between the metal and black pieces i started to notice some leaking when i brewed a full pot. That issue did not repeat when i would make an 8 or 10 cup pot. I recieved this product as a sample to review, however i believe it is a great value for its cost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from cool features This coffeemaker is the best coffeemaker I've ever had! Not only can you set it to brew at a certain time but the machine tells you how much coffee is left in the carafe and how long the coffee has been sitting there! Fabulous!! It looks great on my counter. I also love the feature for the filter. You no longer have to try to remember when you last changed the filter because they have a built in marker to remind you every time you put your grounds in! I was given this coffeemaker as a sample to review and it gets the highest stars I've ever given to a product that I'm reviewing! 5 stars!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not that impressed Upon receiving the Mr. Coffee Optimal Brew, I was very eager to use it. I was really looking forward to trying the delay-brew feature and waking up to fresh, hot coffee. However, I was disappointed to find that the coffee really doesn't stay hot in the thermal pot more than 30 minutes. I also didn't really detect any major distinction in the flavor versus coffee brewed in a standard coffee maker. The design is modern, but a bit bulky. The compartment with the brew basket is a bit of a hassle. Overall, I'm not going to say this is a great buy. I received this as a sample to test, but I wouldn't purchase it myself.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed We had high hopes for this machine. We love our morning coffee and only buy high quality coffee and grind it fresh daily and make it strong. We have always used Mr. Coffee machines and have had good results with them. We were looking to improve our coffee with this machine. The first day the pause feature didn't work and poured coffee all over the counter, after we cleaned up the mess we had the remaining coffee which was OK but not noticeably better than our last machine. The next 2 days the coffee was very weak and not very hot. We will return this machine back to the point of purchase and go back to our $10 coffee maker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my Thermal Coffee Maker! I chose this coffee maker because I don't like reheated coffee, and I really hit the jackpot. It is sleek and looks good on my counter, where it is proudly ensconced. This coffee maker system keeps the coffee at the perfect temperature for a long time. There is a 2 hour timer that notifies you, but the coffee is hot much longer 2 hours. Love the fact that it can be set up so that my coffee greets me in the morning. My only complaint is that the water filter that lasts a month and sits above the coffee grounds is not easy for me to find locally, and had to be ordered. I read the reviews, and kept the packaging in case it stopped working, but I haven't had a problem after 2 months. I wonder if they didn't accidentally run it without water in the reservoir, which is what killed my former coffee pot.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bought to Replace a Krups Cup on Request Machine Agree with the first reviewer (Dr Ed), on almost every point! Fast brewing is definitely a plus for us, yes the filter basket does not stay level on the counter surface, and we also found the coffee weaker than our previous machine and did increase the coffee grounds used by 2 level scoops, for a 12-cup pot, over what we used in the other machine. We've only had this Mr Coffee for a couple of weeks, but we use it once daily during the weekdays. We use stainless steel travel mugs and one briefcase thermos to transport our coffee to our jobs, and we "pre-heat" them before pouring in the coffee from the carafe. Since we use the delayed brew feature, the carafe itself has not been pre-heated. That's normally around 6:30am, and the coffee has stayed "drinkably hot" til all is consumed by 10:00am or so. During the weekends we go through 2-3 12-cup carafes each day between the two of us, so in both cases we don't have the coffee in the carafe long enough to judge how long the carafe might hold the temperature of the coffee inside before feeling a need to reheat via microwave. Neither of us are sure about this "light bar technology" as a fill indicator, as Dr Ed mentioned - you have to be in just the right light to make use of it, and in any case, the plastic sticks seem more gimmicky than technological, and we could do without them. Overall, nice machine, fast, hot coffee, easy to fill and clean.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Delicious Coffee, flimsy reservoir This was my first Mr. Coffee and it is impressive to look at it. Shiny and high tech by appearance, it functions just as any other coffee maker does, or at least one can operate it in the same fashion. It professes to do a great many things that other coffee makers don't but for the most part, I have yet to take advantage of these additional options. The water reservoir is slightly flimsy and it's lid doesn't always snap on immediately. Other than that, it makes great coffee and quickly. It has a water filter that removes chlorine from the water, that will need replacing at some point. It also soaks the the grounds for thirty seconds before brewing, which supposedly makes the coffee taste better. It has saved me a great deal of money. Disclaimer: I got this machine for free as a result of product testing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mr. Coffee optimal brew w carafe Wow everything the great reviews said. Easy to set up and use and finally great tasting coffee without a sour stomach the taste is incomparable to any coffee Macker I’ve bought over the last 32 years. I have arthritis in my thumbs the water tank is easy to pick up , the clock is easy to set, 1 larger button to brew, even the carafe is not difficult to open so much attention to detail. Really can’t believe how different the taste of coffee is when water is heated to 197-204 range and brewed within 8-10 second. I was able to get good deal at target cyber Monday$ 45. Shop around So worth the $. Thank you Mr Coffee for hitting this one outta the park!
