Comment:
We had a Keurig Vue machine that didn't last 6 months. This Bunn My Cafe with the 4 in 1 system is fantastic in comparison. It allows everyone to choose their own mug size and beverage without picking up the flavors from the previous user. The beverages come out perfectly not. The very first time you use it, there's a process that takes a couple minutes that sets up the reserve water; after that, the amount you pour in is the amount that comes out for your drink. The design is very simple and is not as large as other makers, so it's great all around!

Comment:
This is my first single-serve brewing system and I did a lot of research before making my purchase decision. The BUNN My Cafe MCU is the best for true coffee drinkers. Leave the Keurigs for the casual coffee drinkers. The BUNN is extremely simple to use (no touch screen) as there are just 2 buttons. Don't confuse simplicity with lack of options, though. You can customize your brew strength in many ways. If you are using pre-filled k-cups, you can use less water (instead of a button for 6 oz, 8 oz, etc., you simply pour in how much water you want to have brewed) or use the Pulse option to steep a little longer (also useful for brewing tea). If you are using your own grounds, simply add more to the included adapter (a great value because you have to pay extra for the K-cup adapters for other brewing systems).
