This coffee maker can brew up to 12 cups of coffee, making it perfect for families or large houses with many members. If you want to brew smaller sizes or just want the coffee to be stronger, you can choose the 1-4 cup setting. This will give you stronger coffee no matter what brand of grounds or beans you are using.
The coffee maker comes with a backlit LCD display that allows you to see the time and the brewing settings during the day and the evening. The coffee maker also has a cleaning cycle that will keep the machine ready to use and clean all the time. It will also extend the life of the coffee maker and make sure your coffee is always the best flavor you can be.
Bella coffee is also known for its amazing quality and will give you the most amazing cup of coffee every time you use it. The coffee machine is small and compact, so it’s perfect even for small or apartment kitchens. The controls are also all very user-friendly and durable. Even if you are new to coffee-making or these kinds of coffee machines, they will be easy to use.
All of the components are also clean along with the self-cleaning mode on the machine. This makes all your parts last much longer.
The best part is that you can get the coffee machine to match your Bella air fryer, waffle iron, toaster, coffee maker, electric kettle, slow cooker, espresso machines, griddles, and juicers. This coffee maker will complete your Bella kitchen. I do love a consistent style throughout my appliances.
Bella is well-known in the home appliance world. Their products are relatively expensive, but still, last a long time and are very durable. All the components are made to last for a long time. The automatic shut-off will give you peace of mind if you are worried about forgetting to turn off appliances. The bold strength selector will also give you a strong cup of coffee if you desire.

- Brew strength can be customized

- Great value for the price
I love the automatic features and the way it works with such ease. I think that the price is unbeatable for the quality that you receive. The Carafes can also be replaced fairly easily through the company if you happen to break them or need another one.
The design is simple and sleek so it can match any kitchen design or setup. It’s also very compact so you don’t need too much extra counter space for it. The coffee strength is consistent and reliable, so I am confident you will get a good cup every time.
The maker is simple to program and the user manual is easy to follow. I found that the Bella coffee maker is cheaper and works better than other popular brands like Mr. Coffee. Even with everyday use, I believe the coffee maker lasts throughout the months and years.
- Inexpensive means some parts are cheaply made
- Condensation is an issue for some
- Takes a long to brew and work as the years go by
The main complaint I have is that the coffee maker seems to run much slower than other coffee machines. You might need to begin brewing quite a bit of time before you want to drink. This could be less than ideal if you are in a rush in the morning and need your coffee quickly.
I also noticed that I had to buy stronger coffee than normal because the coffee tended to taste weaker in this machine. If you only drink strong coffee or espresso blends, this may not be the best option for you. If you like lighter or medium coffee, this should work just fine. You might just need to get a stronger blend than normal.
If you leave the coffee on the burner for too long, I did think it began to taste stale and burnt. With cheaper coffee makers, this isn’t uncommon but it usually isn’t a deal-breaker for most people. Just remember to drink your coffee when it’s freshly brewed and don’t forget about it. You might also not be able to reheat the coffee that’s been on the burner – Instead, you will need to make a fresh pot.
Overall, I feel that the Bella is a great option if you are looking for an inexpensive coffee maker. Some people choose this as their backup coffee maker option or another maker to add to their collection. Others rely on Bella completely and don’t have any issues. If you happen to break the carafe, it’s easy and simple to get a replacement without having to buy a brand-new coffee maker.
If you like very strong coffee though, this might not be the best option. In general, less expensive coffee makers might make strong coffee blends taste weaker, more acidic, or bitter. Try using light roast or medium roast blends in this Bella coffee maker.
Make sure to keep it clean to prolong its life and you should have a coffee pot that lasts for years. You might even want to start buying other Bella appliances once you see how well this coffee maker performs.
