The Hamilton Beach 12 Cup Compact Programmable Coffee Maker is a large-capacity coffee maker nestled in a small compact design packed with features. It's perfect for small kitchens or any place where you'd like to conserve space. It easily fits under kitchen cabinets with room to spare, and features top-mounted controls that are easier to see and use. Programming is simple, too. Easy-Touch programming lets you set the coffee maker up to 24 hours ahead for fresh, hot coffee when you wake in the morning. Customize the strength of your coffee to suit your tastes with the Select-a-Brew brew-strength selector. Auto pause and pour stops the flow of coffee when you lift the carafe away from the coffee maker to pour a cup of coffee before the brewing stops without making a mess. The coffee maker automatically turns off after 2 hours for added peace of mind. The 12 cup glass carafe holds plenty of coffee for serving a large family or group. It's designed for mess-free, easy pouring. And the transparent water-level window has clear level markings so you can easily see how much water you've added. The sleek black and stainless steel design complements any decor.
