I can’t say it is fully user-friendly but not much hard to use. You can set brewing start time, set clock time. Buttons had LED lights which work as an indicator. It can auto-off after 2 hours. It’s a quiet and small coffee maker.

Brewed coffee temperature of Mr coffee optimal brew is 175 degrees on the thermal carafe and it will reduce 10 degrees every hour. Make sure when you start brewing the carafe is empty.

You can take a cup of coffee before finishing brew because it has an auto brew pause option. It has a fresh coffee time scale that shows you how much time coffee will be fresh but I found it keep fresh more than showing time.
