Your coffee will stay nice and warm in the Philips HD7478/20 Daily's thermos when you put it down on the breakfast table. Read the paper from cover to cover in 1 go, without having to go back to the counter top repeatedly to brew fresh coffee. The machine will stop dripping as soon as you take the jug from it. This keeps your counter top nice and clean. With a 1-liter water tank, you can brew 8 cups of coffee. As such, the device is suitable for small to medium-sized households. Turning the device off isn't necessary, it does so automatically.
