It comes with an automatic pause for when you wont a cup.

One negative about this model is the inside is made with aluminum, and will darken with use, stainless steel would have been a better design.
To clean it every couple weeks when the water is hot or warm pour a little vinegar in it, and wait until it cools down, then rinse it out with more water and you will be ready to go for the next time.
A duel heater in this model will keep the coffee hot without overheating it, and there are a couple of handles on the top side of the metal exterior for carrying.
It has a press button dispenser for any kind of coffee cup you wont to put under the spout, and if you find your cup is too high and doesn’t fit, then you can set the unit on a thick bread board, or something like that.
As far as the price goes it is not too expensive, and you can check that out on Amazon.
