Bottom Line: Great if you are making one to two cups at a time. Easy to clean. Fast good coffee.
Positive Product Points

1) Instead of having to struggle with soggy coffee filters and stray coffee grinds, each coffee serving comes in a little pod that you simply pop into the machine.

2) The coffee maker can make a 7 oz cup, 9 oz cup or 14 oz cup of coffee. The reasoning is that if you got hooked on mega size coffee mugs at one of your local cafes you can now create the same size coffee serving at home.

3)It is fast and easy to use and is really quick to clean up. When you are done just pop the pod out and toss it in the trash. I have never had the pod drip water onto my counters. Then take a damp cloth with a drop of soap and white it down. Easy.

Negative Product Points

The only down side to this coffee maker is that you canít make a 6 or 12 cup pot of coffee, so it takes longer to get coffee to all your guests if you have a dinner party.

Detailed Commentary

I tend to travel between Miami and Orlando on business, twice a month, so I have apartments in both cities. ( It ended up being cheaper than staying in hotels - if you can imagine)

Buying two of everything can be expensive but there is one thing I absolutely can not function without - a good coffee maker. My mom bought me the Home Cafe for my Orlando apartment, partly because she is a terrific mom and partly so she could insure that she and my sister get a decent cup when they pop in.

I had never seen one of these before and was almost a little leery but I thought what the heck and gave it a try. Here is how it works:

1) Instead of having to struggle with soggy coffee filters and stray coffee grinds, each coffee serving comes in a little pod that you simply pop into the machine.

2) The coffee maker can make a 7 oz cup, 9 oz cup or 14 oz cup of coffee. The reasoning is that if you got hooked on mega size coffee mugs at one of your local cafes you can now create the same size coffee serving at home.

On that half of it I love it. Most of the time it is just me sending a surge of caffeine to my slow to awaken brain cells in the morning. It is fast and easy to use and is really quick to clean up. When you are done just pop the pod out and toss it in the trash. I have never had the pod drip water onto my counters. Then take a damp cloth with a drop of soap and white it down. Easy.

The only down side to this coffee maker is that you canít make a 6 or 12 cup pot of coffee, so it takes longer to get coffee to all your guests if you have a dinner party.

If it is just you or you and your honey most of the time though, this is a great coffee maker to have and use on a daily basis.
