Great Single Cup Coffee Maker
12 July 2014
Summary: I had a B&D personal brew and go coffee maker years ago and I loved it. It finally gave up after a few years of faithful use and I purchased a Keurig. I loved it but the k-cups were getting way to expensive so I started using a refillable filter.
Cons: Item arrived opened and damaged. A hinge on the top was broken and the filter/supply system was damaged. Completely unusable from arrival. The open box leads me to believe someone returned some broken item and then it was sent to me.
Excerpt: As a college student, its awesome to have this coffee maker with a to-go cup. Its super easy to work with, you just lift the top up, inside there is a the coffee filter where you can put the ground coffee in. I put around two 1/2 tsp of coffee.
Pros: Fast, easy, leaves the room with the delicious scent of coffee.
Cons: Water drips from the corner if you don't pour it in correctly.
Cons: The cup is awkward and top-heavy. The outside liner is halfway glued to the inside portion, so water leaks in between the insulation and the cup. There's no way to keep the grounds from touching and sticking to the drip spouts on the lid, which means you have to thoroughly wash the *entire thing*...
Pros: Really nice large cup of coffee maker. Coffee is ready in about 2 min. Once you figure out the right strength you like ( 3 coffee scoops makes a good strong cup) the rest is routine. The travel mug is good too if you like to make coffee and get in the car. I also have some larger cups that I can ...
Summary: Overall we really like this coffee maker and I sent my sister one too.
Pros: FAST makes a very quick cup of coffee. The travel mug that comes with it is large enough to pour into 2 smaller cups for sharing a quick coffee. Very easy to load and clean. Auto shut off when done- I love this.
Cons: Coffee flavor not as goos as coffee made in a slower coffee drip pot. We grind fresh coffee every time we make some so know good fresh coffee. It seems that this fas drip maker just cannot quit make the good taste of a slower coffer maker. We are still experimenting with changing grinds from fine...
Summary: It works,for 13.+,bucks whos grippen. Its a B&D so replacment filters shouldnt be to difficult? it will take #2 paper filters if you cut aprox. 1/2" off the top.short stiff a/c cord,no cord storage So far so good.
Pros: Quick-grind the beans add the water and in around 4 min. whalaa fresh coffee. 800w.
Cons: A little Flimsse.Kids beware easy to knock-over.
Summary: I really like the coffee maker. The only problem I have is the cup that came with it. It is very HOT after the coffee has brewed. It looks insulated but apparently isn't. But I have been using a different insulated cup with handle. Doesn't take up much space on my counter.
