Small Cups, Impossible to Find Pods
Easy To Use
The biggest issue I have encountered is that this coffee maker only uses Nescafe pods. You can not use K-Cups, and the Nescafe pods are only available online. The coffee flavor selection is very small; mostly espresso or lattes. Essentially, you have to blindly try flavors by ordering them online.<br /><br />The Genio only makes one size cup of coffee, which doesn't fill a typical size coffee mug. I need to use two pods just to fill my cup in the morning.<br /><br />The Genio is very fast, and the water presser is strong, but it is very loud. <br /><br />Sadly, this was a gift, or I would have returned it by now.
