Hot coffee is good coffee. That's what you get with the BLACK + DECKER™ CM2036S 12-Cup Thermal Programmable Coffeemaker. The stainless steel thermal carafe is vacuum-sealed to keep coffee hot for up to two hours. Plus, you can customize the brew to fit your tastes. The easy-to-use digital controls include different strength options and a setting for batches of 1-4 cups, which maintains the flavor you get with a larger brew. As an added feature, the LCD display includes a fresh brew timer that indicates how much time has passed since the coffee was brewed, up to 120 minutes.
