Review Hamilton Beach (47950) Coffee Maker with 12 Cup Capacity & Internal Storage Coffee Pot, Brewstation, Black/Stainless Steel
Review Hamilton Beach (47950) Coffee Maker with 12 Cup Capac
Welcome the latest innovation from the BrewStation® line- the BrewStation® 12 Cup Dispensing Coffeemaker with Removable Reservoir. In addition to eliminating the breakable glass carafe, the BrewStation® Dispensing Coffeemaker with Removable Reservoir simplifies another messy chore: filling the water reservoir. Instead of opening the top of the coffeemaker and pouring in water, which typically involves pulling the coffeemaker forward for better reach, this coffeemaker is equipped with a removable side reservoir that lifts off for easy filling at the sink.
The BrewStation® Coffeemaker with Removable Reservoir means no pouring and no spilling. There’s no need to use either a carafe or a pitcher for messy filling because the water reservoir removes from the side of the unit, allowing for fast, easy access. This cleverly designed reservoir holds enough water to brew multiple cups and is equipped with a water level indicator for filling smaller amounts as well.
This new model of coffee-dispensing convenience by Hamilton Beach®, the brand that invented the original “coffeemaker without a carafe,” is the latest in a long line of innovative products. Earning high praise since its debut, the dispensing coffeemaker concept changed the way people enjoy coffee. A quick push of the dispenser bar and coffee is dispensed right into the cup; no breakable glass carafe or messy pouring to contend with. Inside each BrewStation® tank, a gentle heater maintains the coffee’s temperature without scorching the flavor. From top to bottom, every coffeemaker in the BrewStation® line delivers the innovation and convenience that coffee drinkers and home cooks have come to expect from the Hamilton Beach® brand.

Effortless Brewing and Dispensing
The inventive BrewStation® design took coffee from an outside carafe to an enclosed, interior tank, where coffee stays hot and fresh tasting for a long time. You make coffee the way you always have — by adding water, a paper filter and ground coffee. On this model, the removable water reservoir expands the convenience even further by letting you fill up at the sink without messy pouring. Best of all, freshly brewed coffee is easily dispensed on cup-at a time by pressing your cup against the dispenser bar for the world’s easiest fill-up.
Do you love every nuance of coffee’s complex flavor? Do you grind — or even roast — your own beans because you enjoy the difference in freshness? Or if your schedule doesn’t allow for such an indulgence, do you satisfy your cravings by purchasing coffee that was recently roasted? Then try going BOLD. Before you start brewing, select the BOLD option to allow more time for water to saturate the grounds and fully extract your coffee’s rich flavor. The BOLD setting will require additional time to complete a brewing cycle. But if you want a bolder tasting cup of coffee, the extra few seconds of brewing time are worth the wait.
Brewing Iced Coffee
Want delicious iced coffee without having to pay at an expensive coffeehouse or have an inconsistent coffee from the drive-through? The try the ICED COFFEE setting. It’s easy to do. Just fill the reservoir up to the 6-cup line and fill the coffee tank with ice no more than the 10-cup line. Then brew your coffee double-strength. Dispense your delicious iced coffee right into your cup or pitcher, stir in sweetener or flavorings, and add ice.

Tips & Care
Before first use, wash the coffee tank, filter basket and drip tray in hot, soapy water. Never put the coffee tank or removable reservoir in the dishwasher. Use coffeemaker cleaner monthly (once a week in areas with hard water) to prevent deposits that adversely affect coffeemaker performance and can decrease the life of your appliance.
