First let me say before I bought this machine, I had a $300.00 Capresso coffee maker with the built in grinder and still do. It's just on vacation! The reason I bought a new machine was so I could see something different on my counter! With that said, let me get to my review. I saw this machine at Walmart and fell in love with the clean lines and and stainless steel. Went home and read the reviews and as always, not all were good but took a chance anyway and I'm so glad I did. I've had it for 2 years now and it still brews hotter and faster than my capresso ever did and 4hrs later I still have hot coffee! There were reviews that said there were problems with water leaking from the water reservoir and the car at would leak coffee around the seam where the plastic and steel come together. I have not had either of these problems. HOWEVER, there was one review concerning a smell that came from the water reservoir. Mine had this smell from day one and I can't describe it but, after 2 years it's still there. Another review spoke of the clock display being too dark. Mine suffers the same problem but I've learned to live with it. Another review has mentioned that the cleaning light keeps coming on. This must be an isolated problem as I have only seen one or two mentioning this and I do not have this problem. The machine fits beautifully under my cabinet and I don't have to move the machine out to put water or coffee in it. The design is so simple and so easy to use. I have used it every single day for the past two years and have never problems. This is the first Mr Coffee I've had in 35 years and let me say they've come a long way. I absolutely LOVE this machine and HIGHLY recommend it to all my friends. As I said at the beginning of this review, my previous machine had a built in burr grinder. I did miss having fresh ground coffee so I also bought the Mr coffee burr grinder and love it too but that's a whole other review.

I am disappointed with this maker. The clock runs slow, about an hour a day. I have had it about six months, the coffee tastes great but too many problems. The clean light keeps coming on. I clean it per instructions, then the next time I use it, the light comes back on. When this happens it takes about 20 minutes to brew a pot. I have run the clean cycle about 5 times but still problems.

Very good brewing machine

By 

from Boston, MA, United States

Comments about Mr. Coffee Optimal Brew BVMC-PSTX91 Brewer:

I bought this drip brewer to use in our office (20+ coffee drinkers), replacing a Bonavita machine, based on three key factors. First, it performs the primary task of brewing very well, with proper temperature (205F) and positive reviews on taste. Second, Mr. Coffee offers the carafe separately at a very affordable price, so we can be drinking from one while a second is brewing and effectively never run out of brewed coffee (if everyone follows the rule of starting another brew after emptying a pot). Third, the carafe has a brew-through lid so the coffee is thermally insulated after brewing and stays hot until needed. (This was the downfall of the Bonavita machine that does not have a brew-through lid.) We did have an issue with coffee overflowing the basket occasionally during the brew cycle when we were using a metal mesh filter and a half cup of beans per batch (measured before grinding), but that problem seems to have been resolved by switching to paper filters. All in all, I would recommend this brewer highly.

Broken out of the box

By 

from Nevada, United States

Comments about Mr. Coffee Optimal Brew BVMC-PSTX91 Brewer:

Well the coffee maker clock is broken it will not set so the delay timer also will not set. I have the exact same coffee maker (quit working after a year) right next t to it and I can set the clock on it so it's not my clock setting skills. How about a little quality control. I have purchased this model previously and all have broke within a year this one didn't even last the first use a complete waste of money. No more Mr Coffee for me

Super Easy

By 

from Biloxi, MS, United States

Comments about Mr. Coffee Optimal Brew BVMC-PSTX91 Brewer:

Just bought this coffee maker about a week ago, and compared to the previous pot we had, this one is much easier to use. My husband always wants a removable water tank, which is why I chose this one. My elderly mother lives with us, and rises much later than we do, so I used to have to pour any remaining coffee in a separate thermal carafe for her. This carafe, eliminates that step, plus keeps it fresher. The parts (water tank, filter basket, and carafe) all fit easily and snugly into place without having to struggle with anything (like the last pot). Plus, the pot automatically turns off when brewing is complete; another bonus. I like the bright white lights on the buttons, and unlike our old pot, nothing spills or drips when you pour the coffee! First pot we've ever had that did not make a mess when pouring. I honestly love it, and would highly recommend it.

Disappointing Coffee

By 

from Pittsburgh, PA, United States

Comments about Mr. Coffee Optimal Brew BVMC-PSTX91 Brewer:

This coffee maker makes weak coffee even from the darkest blend. As best as I can tell the basket simply doesn't hold onto the coffee long enough and so the water just drips through too fast to collect the taste of the beans. It might also be that the water hits the coffee in the basket in a small area rather than spreading over the coffee. I do see some evidence of this in the used grounds. I called Mr Coffee and they sent me a replacement but it is really not any better. I love the features of this coffee maker, but it is really about taste. Time to unpack the French press.

Love the ease, hate the clean up

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Mr. Coffee Optimal Brew BVMC-PSTX91 Brewer:

sing the bluetooth feature is awesome. Turn it on and when I come out in the morning, it's done. The problem is the clean up. I like my coffee strong, but do not overfill the basket given we only make 6 cups of coffee at a time. The grinds seem to overflow into the basket making clean up messy. Grounds are all over the place. I would definitely buy again, but would hope for a better design on this front.

Comments about Mr. Coffee Optimal Brew BVMC-PSTX91 Brewer:

This is a very nice programmable coffee maker.. the problem is the "thermal" carafe does not keep the coffee hot for very long.

Decent Coffee Maker but very annoying

By 

from San Diego, CA, United States

Comments about Mr. Coffee Optimal Brew BVMC-PSTX91 Brewer:

I bought this 6 months ago and recently tried using it to brew some good coffee at home so I don't have to drink the bad coffee in the Office. The delay brew works but what is crazy is there is no way to turn off the Beeper! This thing is loud. It woke up the whole house and my wife thought it was a fire alarm. So I either have to find a new coffee maker, move out or suffer through Office Coffee.

Water isn't very hot

By 

from Carlsbad, CA, United States

Comments about Mr. Coffee Optimal Brew BVMC-PSTX91 Brewer:

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to up the temperature of the water? I've had this machine for maybe 1.5 yrs and lately the coffee is at best, warm. I'm hoping it's similar to the Keurig and the temperature can be adjusted. Using hotter water before brewing defeats the purpose of the delayed brew feature. If the temperature can be adjusted then this machine is 5 GOLD stars.

Don't buy

By 

from Philadelphia, PA, United States

Comments about Mr. Coffee Optimal Brew BVMC-PSTX91 Brewer:

I received this coffee maker for Christmas and it worked great the first few times. Then I went to make a bigger pot of coffee and it flooded over. Now every time I make coffee it's weak and has grounds at the bottom. This has been going on for the past month. No matter how much coffee grounds are in it, it still tastes weak and watery.

Just OK

By 

from Monroe, NC, United States

Comments about Mr. Coffee Optimal Brew BVMC-PSTX91 Brewer:

This coffeemaker has been a disappointment. After a little more than 1 yr. service, the machine does not brew at the max. temp. anymore, making for poor tasting coffee. The reservoir no longer empties completely so I end up with less coffee than anticipated. Finally, the carafe does not keep the coffee hot for more than thirty minutes, after that we have to heat cups in the microwave. For the money we paid, this is a disappointment.

Dry grounds, brown tasteless hot water

By 

from WV, United States

Comments about Mr. Coffee Optimal Brew BVMC-PSTX91 Brewer:

On multiple occasions, I would pull the filter basket out of the machine after the beep to find a puddle of water on top of the water filter. Inside the basket, the grounds were mostly dry. What was in the pot was nothing but brown hot water. It didn't taste or smell like anything but hot water. I followed the suggestion from a post with a similar issue to make sure the grounds were level in the basket, but that did not help. The problem is more the water getting to the grounds in the first place. After the first time this happened, I made a pot with the same amount of both water and grounds. It came out fine. So it's not my method or the water. At this point I do not trust the machine to make a proper pot, and I'm not willing to eat the cost of having to toss every third pot or so.

Great design but clock doesn't work long

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Mr. Coffee Optimal Brew BVMC-PSTX91 Brewer:

I'm on my second with this one! Had to replace the first because you could no longer read the clock to set the delayed brewing. About 3 months after I bought the second one it did the same thing! I love this coffe maker because it loads water on the side not the top which means I don't have to pull it out from underneath the cabinets! Wish they made more with this design! But the clock is an issue! Hopefully MR Coffee will fix this one day!!

Attractive, but beware

By 

from Connecticut, United States

Comments about Mr. Coffee Optimal Brew BVMC-PSTX91 Brewer:

I had this coffee maker for 3yrs now. The digital display has been broken at least a year now, so so long for programming anything on it. It probably broke from the steam, that was coming up, because the front face of the cofeemaker was all wet after every coffee made. The carafe has a seal problem between the polished metal and the plastic top. It leaks. After 2 years, the inside of the carafe looked gross so I tried to clean it and I noticed, that the inner material (not sure what it is) of the carafe was disintegrating and small chunks would float around inside the coffee. It looks rubber, it could be teflon, I don't know. As of now, I'm buying a replacement carafe , but if it starts to develop the same issues, I will have to look elsewhere for a new coffee maker.

Only owned less than 5 months- doesn't work

By 

from Mesa, AZ

Comments about Mr. Coffee Optimal Brew BVMC-PSTX91 Brewer:

I bought this coffee maker about 5 months ago and now every time I try to make coffee it just beeps at me. I unplug it, rattle it, tap it and eventually after multiple times it will suddenly start to brew.

Keeps Coffee Hot, BUT. . .

By 

from Cincinnati, OH, United States

Comments about Mr. Coffee Optimal Brew BVMC-PSTX91 Brewer:

Had this coffee maker for a year or two. Pros: looks nice, the carafe keeps your coffee hot for several hours, delayed start works well. Cons: Needs frequent cleaning cycles and a new filter every two months or the coffee will be very weak. The spring/plunger in the brew basket breaks very easily. The digital readout is almost too dim to see, even at the brightest setting. All in all, I wouldn't spend the extra money for this model again. Quality is not up to par with the cost.
