  18. We tested coffee makers for the water temperature during the brew cycle and the brewing time as well as the temperature of the coffee at the end of brewing and during the keep warm cycle. In addition, we evaluated each brewer’s ease of use, including how easy it was to read and use the controls, access the water tank and brew basket, read the markings on the tank and carafe, whether or not it had automatic keep warm and shut off cycles, and the ease of cleaning the carafe.
