Capresso MT600 Plus Overview

The MT600 Programmable 10-Cup Coffee Maker replaces Capresso’s MT500 with a pair of notable changes:

  • Thermal carafe improved with wider opening (for easier cleaning) and better heat retention
  • Backlit LCD panel only lights up during the brew process

In my opinion it’s Capresso’s best model when combining price, brew volume, coffee quality and overall functionality.

What do I like most about the MT600?

  • Solid 10-cup capacity
  • 24 hour programmable functionality
  • Comes with GoldTone permanent conical filter
  • Comes with removable water filter handle and charcoal water filter with indicator light
  • Thermal carafe works well
  • All things considered, it’s not that expensive

I do have a few minor complaints, noted in the Cons section, but for the price this is a well-rounded model. For an optimal cup, I suggest using a little more ground coffee than your standard recipe calls for.

In general this is a problem with most Capresso brewers (except numbers 4 and 5 below) so it doesn’t affect the MT600’s status on our ranking of the best Capresso coffee maker reviews.

Pros

  • 10-cup brewing capacity
  • Thermal carafe works well
  • Programmable 24-hour Auto-On
  • Though made primarily of plastic, has stainless steel accents where it counts

Cons

  • Programmable start time does not clearly distinguish between AM and PM
  • Water level indicator is difficult to read
  • Definitely works better if you use a little extra coffee

Is the Capresso MT600 Plus for you?

The Capresso Ultimate PRO is an entry-level espresso machine that brews single and double shots at the push of a button and includes an integrated steam wand. Overall, it's not a great machine. Value-wise? Another story.

Designed to brew single servings up to 16 oz and accommodate travel mugs up to 7" tall, the Capresso On-The-Go Personal Coffee Maker is a solid single-serve coffee maker. But why wouldn't you just get a Keurig?

Capresso 5-Cup Mini Drip

Capresso 5-Cup Mini Drip
Overall Rating: 80
Looking for a drip coffee maker but don't need the standard 50-60 oz pot? The Capresso Mini Drip is for you. Its 25 oz brew capacity is enough for 2 large cups without wasting leftover coffee (or precious counter space).
