How do you enjoy a true coffee-lover’s brew? | KRUPS SAVOY EC314 Review

Spread the love

What do your mornings look like? Mine look something like this: The alarm goes off; I stumble to the bathroom and then straight to the coffee pot. My coffee pot is on a timer, so the coffee is already brewed when I wake up, and I pour it into my cup. A half a cup later, I’m ready to function. I’m a total java junkie. My entire family knows that we just don’t talk to mom before that half a cup of coffee is gone, and if they do they won’t get much of a response. It’s either groggy and doesn’t make much sense, or something to the effect of “I don’t care. It’s too early.”

Like most people, coffee makes me happy. Mornings are so much more enjoyable (for both me and my family!) when I have a great cup of coffee in my hands. Because of this, a great coffee maker is important. I don’t want to be bothered doing a bunch of work with half open eyes. I just like to pour the coffee and be happy.

I recently tried out the KRUPS Savoy EC314. This coffee maker and I have become very good friends. I truly enjoy every minute we spend together.  One of my favorite features is the bright and large LCD screen. I’m not 18 anymore. The bigger screen is especially helpful when I wake up with squinty and still tired eyes from blogging the night before.  It’s also got a knob control which makes things even easier for my morning self.  I mentioned above how it’s on a timer – The EC314 has a dual timer so that you can set it to brew later on weekends if you’re one to sleep in. I totally take advantage of this feature!

The 12-cup capacity ensures that my husband gets a cup or two as well, or if I’m entertaining, it’s more than enough to share with a few dinner guests. However, you can also set it to brew 1-4 cups if you just need a little shot of the good stuff for yourself before you run out the door.

KRUPS really thought of everything with the new KRUPS SAVOY EC314!   The unit also includes:

  • a large, Easy to Read LCD screen
  • modern and intuitive rotating knob control
  • integrated water filtration system
  • clean indicator illuminates when its time to descale
  • pause and serve feature allows removal of carafe at anytime
  • large front water tank level – allows for easy viewing
  • Reg/Bold Setting: Provides the user control over the richness of their coffee
  • 1-4 Cup Function: Ensures that whether you are brewing for just yourself, or a large group, you get the same quality cup of coffee every time
  • Keep Warm Function: Keeps coffee warm for up to 4 hours at three different temperature options and has a thermo-sensor that ensures the coffee stays at the desired temp
  • Auto-On: Dual program settings for weekday & weekend auto-on function so that your coffee is always ready when you need it

Another one of my favorite features is the integrated water filtration system which ensures that you only get coffee made with the cleanest water, and there’s even a cleaning function to help descale the insides for those who have well water and the resulting hard water problems. Hard water is a coffee maker’s worst enemy. It’s imperative to keep it clean or you’ll ruin your machine.

Not only am I in love with the functions, I’m really happy with the way it looks on the counter. It’s got a sleek and modern brushed stainless steel finish that matches with any décor. I’m always very happy to see my EC314 in the morning! It really does help me start my day on a great note!

    Is it easy to pour the water into the reservoir? The Krups coffee maker that I have now doesn’t allow me to completely pour water into the reservoir from the pot, as there isn’t enough room to tip the pot. I usually pour the last part of the water into a coffee cup first, and then pour into the reservoir. Also, the current coffee maker isn’t friendly in terms of knowing how much water is being poured into the reservoir. That is another reason why I have to pour the amount of water that I want into the pot first, and then transfer it to the reservoir.

    I’m not a coffee fan at all, or a fan of any hot drinks for that matter. My other half though is always drinking the stuff, I bet he’d love a coffee machine 🙂

    YUM! Coffee is one of my favorite things, but I just don’t know if I would be able to drink that much every morning! Does it have the ability to make less than 12 cups when you run it?

    This sounds like a great solution for holiday guests! We have the pod type machine, but it can get expensive when there’s a house full of guests and we’re all drinking coffee and making one cup at a time.

    My husband is a coffee lover. He drinks it by the pot full and drinks it most of the day! This looks like a cool coffee maker.

    I’m thinking of getting one of these for my husband for Christmas. He’s the coffee drinker in the family and could really use a new one!

    I’m not a coffee drinker myself, but my father is. No matter what time he gets into work, morning or afternoon, he goes straight for the coffee maker to make a pot.

    I would be so lost without my morning cup of coffee! My coffee maker gets used several times a day.

    My parents insist that I have coffee whenever they are in town. In fact we bought a coffee maker just for them. This sounds like a great gift for them!

    I don’t drink coffee but it sounds like a great review. I do love my hot chocolate during the freezing cold winter!

    I always start the day with a warm cup of coffee (or hot cocoa sometimes in the winter.) I’ll definitely be added this to my holiday wishlist <3
