Capresso 5-Cup Mini Drip Overview

With a smaller brew volume, more compact design, and lower wattage, the Capresso 5-Cup Mini Drip is a step down in size most other drip coffee makers, which have double the brew volume.

  • Still features 24-hour programmable Auto-On
  • Still comes with GoldTone permanent filter
  • Adds warming plate for 2-hour Auto-Off (thermal carafe models don’t need this)
  • Doesn’t come with a water filter
Pros
  • Warming plate with 2-hour Auto-Off
  • Programmable 24-hour Auto-On
  • Low wattage means low energy use
Cons
  • Smaller 5 cup (25 oz) brew volume
  • Extraction could be better

About The Coffee Maven

Bryan De Luca

I'm Bryan but most people know me as The Coffee Maven. I grew up outside Boston, Massachusetts and received my Bachelor's degree in Biochemistry from Providence College. My first introduction to coffee was during my college days, when I used it as a source of caffeine to fuel late-night study sessions, but soon I became obsessed with the chemistry of coffee. How did changes to water temperature or contact time affect its taste? Why do beans from Africa taste fruity while beans from Indonesia taste spicy? I launched The Coffee Maven in February 2017 to explore these questions and help others brew their perfect cup. Welcome to my site, and thanks for reading!
