I love MY Bunn My Cafe coffeemaker...it's simple, no frills, meaning less bells and whistles that you don't need or use, to break down...and it SOLID and well-built. So you have to add water for each cup, big deal...the trade off is, you are adding clean, fresh water that hasn't been sitting in a reservoir for god only knows how many days waiting to be used. And, go into any diner in the USA, most likely you will see a BUNN commercial coffee maker before you see a Keurig...??? Bunn is the ONE, I rest my case...!!!

Comment:
I think Consumer Reports completely missed the boat on this one. We bought the much higher rated Verismo model based on the CR recommendation. It did not get the coffee hot. If Starbucks sold coffee at that temperature in their stores, there would be only one Starbucks and the barista there would be very lonely. So, the other problem with the Verismo was you had to buy the very expensive Verismo pods with no other options. <br /><br />The Bunn My Cafe MCU is all about options. First, it will work with the K-cups which gives you the ultimate in variety and convenience. It makes a K-cup taste great by sizing the coffee serving precisely to your taste, and by getting the coffee quite hot.<br /><br />But that's just the beginning. The My Cafe MCU has a pod that you can load with any coffee you want. It's a little more trouble to clean, but again, the variety is unlimited and you can make a bigger cup of strong coffee. The MCU will also work with soft coffee pods, tea pods and regular tea bags, and it makes a delicious glass of instant ice tea. Also, outputs hot water for soup, etc. <br /><br />CR's complaint about the first cup being slow is off base for most people. The water in the machine stays hot all the time. After six hours, to save energy, it drops back to 140 degrees. From that temperature, it takes one minute to get the water back to the brewing temperature of 200 degrees. After 26 hours, to save energy, it enters sleep mode. From that point, it takes two minutes to get it back up to brewing temperature. If you make coffee every day at approximately the same time, the longest you'll ever have to wait is a minute for the water to get hot.<br /><br />This is not the perfect coffee maker, but compared to the Verismo 600 . . . well, there's really no comparison.

Comment:
I use my Bunn MCU for everything. I have used k-cups, ground, pods, tea bags, I've tried it all. Yes, you have to wait a bit to heat it up on your first cup of the day, but you have to do that with most of them. I like the coffee that I get from this Bunn. I don't notice excessive noise. No worse that any of the other single-serve brewers I have had. This Bunn takes up much less space than other single-serve coffee makers and I bought a little rolling pad to put it on so it slides in and out from under my cupboards with ease. I really love this machine and am very glad I bought it.
