I always made instant coffee for myself at home. This was fine for me, but my guests would NOT drink instant coffee. So, I "joined the crowd" and bought the K45 Elite Brewer. I love it. One guest who adds a lot of half and half cream, said his coffee wasn't hot enough. I read online that others first quickly heat, in the microwave, the milk in the mug. Then the coffee is very HOT.
