The need for a smaller pot of coffee can be felt at home and in business situations. So, Hamilton Beach Commercial offers the Aroma Elite 4 cup coffee maker with glass carafe to fill that need. The commercial automatic drip coffee maker has a pause and serve feature that tells the machine to quit the brewing process if the carafe is removed. This will satisfy those that want their coffee before brewing completes, and keep messes to a minimum. If there is inactivity for 30 minutes, the 4 cup coffee machine will turn itself off saving electricity, coffee burned carafes, and other safety concerns from happening by unattended electric small appliances. A swing out basket and pour over filling is the easiest out there to clean, maintain and use. You will need 4 cup filters and ground coffee to fill, or use the premeasured 4 cup pouches that are simply tossed into the basket.
