Detailed Commentary

I've had the Brew N' Go for about 8 years, maybe longer. For most of it's life it has been our travel brewer. Small enough to fit in a quite compact box or in a corner of my suitcase. Mornings would see five 14 oz cups run through it. One to drink, two for the thermos and two for the to go cups. Spray head wiped off with a towel, rinse the water chamber, set upside down to drain over the edge of the sink, wipe dry and it's ready to pack. On heavy coffee days, we might stop at a picnic shelter with electric outlets and in a matter of minutes have a couple of hot cups of great coffee.

Mine is an older model that does not have the metallic filter. #2 cone filters fit the brewing basket with about a 1/2" overhang which is good as it gives you a grip to remove used coffee and filter with no mess.  

Recently my wife has been on a cold-brew coffee kick exclusively and I finally got tired of throwing out coffee brewed in my Melitta Clarity. It kind of keeps in a thermos, but it is not so great after brewing in the morning and having a cup when I got home from work. The thrill was gone. Time to break out the Brew N' Go.  It has been working out great. No more old coffee for me! The Clarity I keep out for company or when I'm brewing a thermos full for a road trip. It's a great brewer also.

I use about 2 or 2-1/2 scoops per 15 oz mug.

I do have a newer Brew N' Go that I bought in case this one dies. Amazon often will run these on sale for under ten dollars. I gave one to my brother a year ago and he loves it as much as I love mine.  

It makes me wonder sometimes if this little brewer had a designer that loved coffee, or it was just a lucky coincidence that came together to produce a fantastic little coffee brewer. Judging from some of the other reviews for Black and Decker brewers, I would conclude that the Brew N' Go was a just a coincidence .

Buying Experience

OK

It was Walmart, what experience is there to describe?
