Morphy Richards Vector Pour Over Coffee Machine 163002 Pour-Over Coffee Machine 12 Cup Coffee Machine : Coffee Hour

Very easy to set up and use , makes lovely smooth coffee.

Nice, modern-looking machine that sits neatly in the kitchen. Makes a perfectly competent cup of coffee, so in that it’s fine. It’s got a blue-lit clock, useful, and a timer – again useful if you know when you’ll next want your freshly made coffee. It keeps your coffee hot for 25 minutes after the coffee is finished, and gives you a countdown on this. It has a strength setting – i have no idea what it does to make a stronger or weaker brew, and if you only make between 1 and 4 cups, then it sets the strength itself. But…* it’s all black, so in poor light , or if you’ve got the machine to the back of the worktop, aiming for the water container, which is sort of integrated around the coffee filter hopper, is difficult. I shot a jug full straight through onto the worktop first time i used it. There’s an “internal ladder” inside the reservoir to indicate how much water has gone in, but unless you’re directly above, and the light is good, this is hard to see. One of those transparent side bars that lots of kettles have would be useful – but not so sexy to look at* it’s a bit slow – 7 minutes to make about. 5 litre by our timing – far more time than it takes to make a filter coffee the usual way, and the coffee isn’t noticeably different;* the permanent filter may be environmentally sound, but it’s a right pain to clean if you don’t use paper liners, and there are none provided with the machine.

I’ve been using this on a daily basis for just over two months. I find it easy to use, you literally pour in the water, coffee and press the button. It brews 2-3 large mugs of coffee in around 6 minutes on medium strength which is perfect for me. The timer function is very handy for when i have work and want my coffee to be ready for when i get up. I’ve still to find out how to clean the inside of the machine, other than running plain water through it on a weekly basis, but cleaning the parts (filter and jug) is quick and easy. All in all, i’d definitely recommend this filter coffee machine.

Looks modern and great quality.

I’d like to reply to the review saying about the plasticy taste. I have noticed a slight plasticy taste only when using the preset 4 cup strengthif i set the strength myself there is only coffee no other horrid or weird tastes. Just tried the timer setting this morning worked great was lovely to wake up to 🙌🏼❤️i find the filter no problem at all however i think i may get some disposable cupcake filters just to save having to keep washing the permanent one. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.

I have not had a coffee machine in a really long time so was very excited to test this. 1stly it looks really different and unusual with its geometric styling, but it looks fantastic in my lime green and black kitchen. It was very easy to set up, i had a pot of coffee within half an hour. I did a dry run through however with just plain water 1st to get rid of any resideue left over from manufacturing. I think the mesh filter is genius because i will never have to buy coffee filters, saving the environment from excess junk, the mesh is ridiculously easy to clean, you just tap the coffee grounds out and then run under the hot water tap, takes all of 60 seconds, probably not even that. It would of been nice to of had an extra filter in the package however because if anything happens to it, you are pretty stuffed. You can buy a spare for less then 3 quid from the manufacturers website but there are none in stock. You can also buy basket coffee filters that are around 8 quid for 100 but again its not necessary as thats why the mesh is there. I only drink decaf so i bought a pack of decaf ground and let the machine do its work. The coffee was piping hot, mellow and smooth, and tasted delicious.

Makes very good coffee but only keeps the coffee warm for 25 m which is not enough for me.

My first pour over coffee machine and i don’t know what i did without one. Coffee is delicious, love having a timer so its ready when i wake up and it looks great too.

  • Best coffee machine I’ve had
  • Try all strength settings before you decide to hate this.
  • Brilliant machine at a brilliant price!!!!!

Morphy Richards Vector Pour Over Coffee Machine 163002 Black Pour-Over Coffee Machine 12 Cup Black Coffee Machine

Product Description, Find your angle with the new, geometrically gorgeous, vector collection. With the stunning contrast between 3D patterned high gloss plastic and shiny stainless steel trims, the vector collection is to make an impression. Morphy Richards has combined the superior taste of manual pour over coffee with the ease and convenience of a programmable machine. It’s perfect for those who enjoy the true taste of coffee but want it delivered quickly and conveniently. Pour over is becoming increasingly popular due to the fuller, smoother, less bitter tasting coffee it produces. The pour over uses two key features to create this unique flavour: firstly, a cupcake shaped filter which allows for a more even flow of water over the coffee grounds, delivering a smoother taste, unlike traditional cone filter which can over-extract the coffee in the narrowest part of the filter, resulting in a bitter taste. Secondly, the specifically adapted brewing process which mirrors the manual methods used by baristas. This process initially delivers a small volume of water over the grounds and allows the coffee a few minutes to ‘bloom’ (releases carbon dioxide and extracts the flavours), before dispensing the rest of the water. This machine also has a programmable Timer which allows you to wake up to fresh coffee every morning, plus an adjustable coffee strength selector so you can tailor the flavour intensity to your taste. The 1. 8L capacity can brew up to 12 cups at once, and the keep warm function will keep your freshly brewed carafe warm for up to 30 minutes.

Pour Over Shower Head

Pour over shower head evenly disperses the water over the coffee grounds, ensuring they are fully covered and maximum flavour can be extracted from the coffee.

Reusable Cupcake Filter

The unique cupcake shaped filter allows even coverage of the coffee thereby avoiding over and under-extraction of coffee which is commonly found when using cone shaped filters. The cupcake filter can be used with or without additional disposable filter papers.

Versatile and Easy Programming

The machine includes a programmable timer so you can pre-set the time you wish your coffee to be brewed. It also includes a coffee strength selector so you can tailor the strength specifically to suit your taste.

1.8 L Capacity

Brew from 1-12 cups at a time, perfect whether preparing one morning coffee or entertaining. The machine will also automatically adjust to the optimum brew strength when brewing small volumes (1-4 cups).

Keep Warm Function

After your machine has brewed a fresh carafe of coffee, it will keep it warm for up to 30 minutes.

This morphy richards coffee maker is a great addition to your kitchen. Easy to set up straight out of the box, within no time you’re brewing coffee comparable to, or even better than, some cafes. We found the coffee was better with freshly ground beans, but pre-ground coffee is pretty good to. You get a better bloom with fresh beans. Up until now i’d used a hario drip manual coffee maker, but i’m thinking this will replace that. You don’t need filter papers with this machine as there is a mesh basket, but we’ve found using filter papers makes it easier to dispose of old coffee and to clean up afterwards. The timer function meant we could wake up to fresh coffee and the hot plate ensured it stayed hot for when we went back for a second cup. All in all this machine makes great tasting fresh coffee and with additional papers this is quick and easy to keep clean.

So pod coffee makers do make amazing coffee, but somehow seem to me a selfish extravagance as goes the environmental cost in the difficulty recycling used pods. They are also a wasteful and an expensive way to make coffee. Pods were out for me, which left continuing with my trusty cafetiere or going for a traditional coffee maker. Looking at independant reviews, this coffee maker was and is pretty much near the top of the class but carries a budget circa forty quid price tag. Seems reasonable, eh???ii splashed out the readies and set forth to discover if it exceeded in comparison to the equally easy cafetiere route. First of all, it has to be said that it is reasonably easy to use. Filling the reservoir is perhaps the most difficult task, as peering into the reservoir itself, the filling gradients need quite bright light to be seen. Although it should be an easier task to fill from the coffee jug included (filled to the desired cup marks on it), it somehow isnt.

It look ok but after two monts signs on the buttons are scratching off. Bought as a set with kettle and toster. Kettle broke in less then 2 monts.

Great i brought this for my parents for christmas and they love it. It’s so easy to use and with a built in filter it makes it even better. Looks very stylish in the kitchen.

My biggest issue with this coffee machine is it doesn’t stay switched on to keep the coffee warm for very long after brewing. It switches off far too soon. It’s also a little tricky pouring the water into the top with the edges squared off. I like the option to change strength although we’ve needed it on full strength for every coffee we’ve used. Unless you plan to drink the whole brew straight away it’s not that useful.

So far the coffee machine has made a perfect cup of coffee, it is also easy to use and set up.

Brilliant coffee maker, easy to use, you can choose 3 different strengths and set the timer. The coffee comes out of it hot and not gritty in any way.

We found the brand name coffee we use in the cafetiere had a bitter taste when used in this machine. We’ve stopped using it already.

Why not in red to match my kettle and toaster please.

As per a lot of reviews, i can confirm that this is a very good product that makes great coffee. It’s easy to use after a few attempts and filters the coffee perfectly. Also, the filter does stain regardless of how well you wash it, so i will be using paper filters from now on. One word of advice is to always put 2 scoops in for a mug asthe markings on the pot are for cups (1 scoop) nothing worse than wasting a cup of coffee.

Easy to use and ok product for the price. Don’t need filter paper which is great. The symbols on the buttons have rubbed off within a couple of months which isn’t great. Coffee can taste a bit plasticky to start.

Great coffee machine easy to use and looks great.

I bought this for my mum and she loves it.

I never drink instant coffe, cannot stand the stuff and have for years tried to find a quick, not too pricey way of making proper coffee. I have had cafatieres but never found them satisfactory, tried the nespresso stuff which never stays hot and is very expensive and once tested a huge coffee machine similar to those found in coffee shops. It ground your beans and you had choice of grinds, strengths, etc etc and after about half an hour of faffing about you finally, if you were lucky, got a cuppa. Then a couple of years ago i discovered filter coffee again, this time an electric filter machine, none of the paper filters and have been very happy with the results. Now this one which i was delighted to review. Most permanent filters are pyramid shaped and the coffee drips through the point. This machine has one with a wider flatter bottom to the filter so the coffee permeates through over a wider area which should give you a better mellower cup of coffee. Well, i am a cynic when it comes to various claims but on this occasion i can say how delighted i am with the results of the coffee made with this machine so far. First up, it looks really elegant and smart and is not enormous and fits nicely on my work top. It comes with a coffee scoop and a very clear set of instructions which is not always the case.

Huge jug and the timing function is just a dream. Our previous coffee machine also beeped really loudly which was annoying when one of us was getting up early, this one has one small beep and that’s it.

Brilliant little machine, very easy to use with a pleasantly basic setup with the added extra of being able to set a time to make a lot, brilliant when you get up really early and haven’t got time to mess around. Best of all makes great tasting coffee.

I like that you can clean the filter. Haven’t had any issues using it the last few months. Makes wonderful coffee and importantly doesn’t burn the coffee like cheap machines.

Makes great coffee and matches our kettle and toaster. No plastic taste as others have mentioned, but we did run it through 3 times before use.

I like to be honest about my reviews and this is no different. Easy to use (even hubby can work it) not too many buttons to confuse you. The timer function is a godsend. Remember old the old teas made?. Hubster sometimes gets upat 0430 for work. Set the timer for 0430 and by the time he’s actually got out of bed, there is a steaming hot brew waiting.

It’s a shame it won’t keep it warm after 30 mins without faffing with buttons.

Traditional filter coffee maker – healthier and better than most other forms of coffee maker including cafetieres as the filters remove the harmful aspects of ground coffee. The arrival of this was timely as my kettle decided to pack up – i use an individual drip filter for a single cup as a rule. Setting it up was straightforward and i didn’t have the bother of filter papers thanks to the mesh filter. It produced a jug of coffee fairly quickly – you are able to set the strength desired using one of the buttons on the front panel and i had it set to medium. The one area where it fell down is the poor instruction book which is actually incorrect. The hotplate stays on for 25 minutes and then switches off but according to the instructions ‘to reactivate the machine from standby mode press any button’. This simply does not work – whichever button you press triggers that function. The only button that brings the hotplate back on is the power button. I am at a loss to understand why manufacturers do not test their instruction booklets on someone who has never seen or used the machine before. The machine itself is a sleek compact design and will sit discreetly in a corner on your worktop without taking up too much space.

Looks good and makes good coffee.

Nice looking replacement for an older unit which had failed a pat test. Will use in church for coffee after the service so the easily set timer means the coffee person no longer has to leave early. I think it will be good for meetings like the church council to help keep business moving along quickly. It’s very easy to use – even without the quick start page in the manual. I like the fact that there is a strength setting as i like strong coffee – and as i am the vicar everyone else gets it too. Obviously if you have 50 people coming to church and they all want coffee then the 12 cup jug won’t be enough – though you can order a second one so you can put another on as soon as the first is ready. The taste of this coffee compared to my many other methods of making coffee with the same set of freshly ground coffee beans is very good. Strong and mellow with no bitterness. Other methods may be better for foamy milky cappuccinos or flat-whites but for good basic filter coffee for up to a dozen people this machine is very effective and very good value. Looks great with the vector design – though i wouldn’t like it in my kitchen, but that is a matter of personal taste.
