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?

Capresso MT900 Rapid Brew

Capresso MT900 Rapid Brew
Overall Rating: 85
A solid mid-range drip coffee maker with a few handy features like the Maximum Aroma setting on smaller 3-5 cup brew size, the Capresso MT900 Rapid Brew is one of Capresso's best. But we wouldn't exactly call it "rapid."

Capresso Ultimate PRO

Capresso Ultimate PRO
Overall Rating: 80
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.

Capresso On-The-Go

Capresso On-The-Go
Overall Rating: 80
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?

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!
