I love coffee but when I am home, I usually drink instant(I know) for the convenience. My wife just had to have this maker and got a great deal, so in it came and I haven't had instant since!! Fresh coffee in even faster time than instant!!<br />This maker seems well made and makes the k-cup brew quickly in about 2 minutes. <br /><br />It is simple. I fill my mug with tap water, pour it in the reservoir, slip in the kcup and press brew. voila, fresh hot coffee fast and simple.<br /><br />The things I would change to this maker would be a setting to adjust water temp up or down (I like my coffee extra hot),possibly add a warming tray under the cup and change the cap that holds the water filter in the reservoir because it is indented and traps water. <br /><br />Buy this Cuisinart brewer though. It is fast, easy and attractive!
