Bottom Line: Do not buy this grind and brew machine...makes lousy coffee and you'll spend more time cleaning it than enjoying it's conveniences
Positive Product Points

Looks great sitting on my counter.

Negative Product Points

Extremely difficult to clean, steam fills grinder compartment.

Detailed Commentary

The concept for this coffee maker is great, but the execution falls way short.  I was never able to brew a decent cup of coffee from this machine.  Not to mention that the clean-up process after you were done brewing - negated the conveniences of having a one step grind and brew process.  Coffee grinds get stuck all over the interior of this machine.  When I pull out the coffee filter half the contents are dry as if the water never flowed through the filter.  I tried several different methods to brewing: added more beans and more water, less beans and more water, more beans and less water.  The results were always the same, I had a cup of watery coffee with little or no flavor.  I even tried different types of coffee beans and still did not matter.  I returned my machine after 2 weeks.  I'm going to buy the Capresso grind and brew.
