Summary: Having used the same machine daily for years while living in Germany I was delighted to find I could buy the same again on my return to the UK. Yes, the cups are small, yes the water fills them unevenly - but these problems are solved easily! Use an average size mug instead of the provided cups and, hey presto, a full mug of coffee, ideal for a one-person breakfast.
Summary: I had a tea/coffee maker some years back which was a great asset in the mornings & I expected this was going to be similar. Unfortunately the cups are not much bigger than espresso size and I've yet to find what makes a decent blend in them for either tea or coffee. My advice - spend a bit more and get a decent one.
Summary: Its only for me so I use a bigger cup as the ones that come with it are very small, but it fills one big cup nicely. I use instant coffee so only put water into it. No instruction book came with it but I asked seller for one and it was sent quickly. You have to remember to switch it off. I like it and use it every day but wouldn't be so pleased if I wanted to use the 2 small cups. It is a great price compared to others so guess you get what you pay for.
Summary: It is a neat little machine but the cups are very small. I tried to use a bigger cup but it was too tall. I then chose a smaller wider cup which worked well but I then found that the tea was not very hot. It would be better if there was just a bit more space to fit a tall mug. Otherwise good value for money.
Summary: Ok for a cup of black coffee, and can be used with tea bags, you must be very careful to measure the water, and the cups do not fill evenly causing one to overflow if you measure by filling to the top. Not really good enough for a morning cup of tea in bed.
