Capresso 12-Cup Stainless Steel Coffee Maker Giveaway

I recently received this Capresso 12-Cup Stainless Steel Coffee Maker (SG120) and it’s Capresso’s newest addition to their line of coffee makers.

It’s a compact and stylish machine that is perfect for any coffee lover, including college students heading back to school where space is at a premium, or for those who enjoy entertaining or hosting brunches where brewing 12 cups for a crowd and sipping on plenty of java is essential.

Brewing a great cup of coffee is a science. The amount of time the water is in contact with the coffee grounds directly relates to the final taste of the brew.

All Capresso coffee makers brew coffee in less than one minute per cup which means coffee will never be over-extracted or bitter.

  • Full stainless steel wrapped housing provides superior strength and style
  • Glass carafe with ergonomic handle has brew through lid and drip-free pouring spout
  • Permanent GoldTone filter is easy to use and easy to clean
  • 24-hour programmable clock/timer with easy to read blue back lit LCD display

  • Easy to fill internal water level indicator displays 2 to 12 cup markings
  • Drip stop allows you to pour a cup while brewing

This machine is solidly built, makes great coffee, and I’ll be brewing with it for years to come.

I’ve never met a cup of coffee or specialty coffee drink I didn’t like:

Vanilla Iced Coffee – So easy and I’ve never understood why people make a bigger deal out of it than it really is.

Iced Coffee-Making Tips: Save your leftover coffee; put in a pitcher or jar in the refrigerator, and pour over ice the next day; add cream and sugar or fix it how you enjoy it.

Also, pour leftover coffee into ice cube trays and freeze to create coffee ice cubes, and use those rather than traditional ice cubes to prevent iced coffee from getting watered down.

  5. My favorite thing to order out is a shot of espresso in large cup filled then about 3/4 fill with whole milk. Neither cool nor hot. Sweet with milk but without sugar. Heavenly.

  6. You know I’m a coffee addict….can’t help it :)

    Favorite cup of coffee:

    1. If I’m out- I like a soy misto (cafe au lait)
    2. If I’m at home, strong and HOT coffee with almond milk (vanilla unsweetened) and stevia.

  7. I drink Trader Joe’s Kona Coffee black every morning!

  8. I follow your RSS feed via my google reader.

  9. Oh oh , I’m sorry I mean tradition not a culture :) in my last message
    So sorry .

  10. I have a stainless steel stovetop espresso maker that doesn’t quite live up to a great espresso, but it’s pretty good for home. Add to that a little cinnamon, a little vanilla, a little almond milk, and it’s a great sort-of latte. Unfortunately, the gasket broke on the thing and I haven’t been able to find another one.

  11. I follow Capresso on Pinterest. Loving all of the coffee recipes!

  12. My favorite Starbucks drink is a grande dark roast with steamed soymilk – but coffee at home is whatever flavor I’m in the mood for that day!

  13. My perfect cup of coffe is Gevalia coffee through an espresso press with frothed milk, honey, and cinnamon. Mmmmmm.

  14. I like Don Francisco’s Coffee. Coffee+milk (no sugar) … steaming hot!

  15. My favorite cup of joe is the Alterra’s Favorite Blend with a little bit of milk, hot or iced.

  16. I’m pretty basic with my coffee- I like a really dark drip coffee with 1/2 and 1/2. No bells, whistles, sugars, or drizzles. I like my sweets in the form of baked goods to enjoy along side my coffee! :)

  17. Hot coffee with cream.

  18. My perfect cup of coffee is Shenandoah Joe’s Tanzanian or Stumptown’s Hairbender made in my French press. And I like it black – no cream or sugar!

  19. an iced caramel latte with no sugar from Dunkin’ Donuts!

  20. I like capresse on facebook

  21. I follow capresso on pinterest

  22. I like to make simple coffee drinks at home – nothing that takes too much effort or two many ingredients. My “go-to” drink is usually an iced latte with skim milk, a splash of vanilla syrup, and a few sprinkles of cinnamon-sugar to give it a touch of sweetness. Yum!

  23. Hi Averie! Although I don’t drink coffee anymore, from time to time I make a good brew (the old fashioned way, in a copper kanaka, you know that narrow-topped small boiling pot for coffee) of Arabica, slowly boiling it on the stove top. Then I pour it in a nice coffee cup, and add a small dollop of ice-cream and a few drops of Grand Marnier on the top. Then I indulge into the aroma and taste of a perfect drink…:)
    I also use an old fashioned coffee grinder, manual one. The whole process is soothing and rejuvenating.

    Please, note: I am Not entering this giveaway. I just wanted to leave my comment and say Hi to you! :)
