Are you looking for a great cup of coffee in the morning? Then the Cuisinart DCC-3000 Coffee-on-Demand 12-Cup Programmable Coffeemaker will truly let you be able to get that robust coffee flavor that you love, since it brews at 190 degrees. This is an important factor, since the flavor of the coffee beans will not fully be extracted if the water does not reach a hot enough temperature. This great coffeemaker has some great features which will be discussed here in this Cuisinart DCC-3000 review.


The removable water reservoir is made of a good solid construction and removes easily from the coffeemaker for when you need to fill it with water to be able to make your favorite brewed coffee.

There is a drip tray with a grate that is able to capture any excess coffee that does not get dispensed into your mug. The tray is also able to deal with residual condensation that occurs during the brewing process, which is totally a normal occurrence. The tray is removable, which allows for easy clean up when needed.
