Excellent Single Cup Coffee Maker
Fresh Coffee In Minutes
Good hot coffee
Handy for travel
No Wasteful Plastic Pods
Best Uses
I am the only coffee drinker in the house and I love that every cup is fresh. No stale, burnt tasting coffee with the Brew n Go. I take it when we travel and don't have to worry about sub par hotel coffee. <br /><br />I have tried the new single cup (pod coffee makers) and prefer the Brew N Go by far!

Best Uses
Fresh coffee
I received one as a gift over 9 years ago. Works great, I use it everyday. I prefer to use a tall ceramic mug to fit under. The best thing I can control my coffee strength and make it darker. No pods to buy. Does not produce pod plastic waste.

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
Black &amp; Decker
Best Uses
I was expecting a Black & Decker coffee maker to live up to the B&D name. It wasn't.<br /><br />The water pump has been and remained clogged up, allowing only a small amount of coffee to brew. I've even cleaned it out several times but it gets clogged immedately.
How long have you owned it:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
