Comment:
It might be nice to be able to pick up pods locally, but Amazon delivers our favorite flavors regularly and WHAT flavors! Go with the highest ranking Amazon varieties and you won't go wrong. The caramel macchiato is delicious. <br />It's very speedy, much faster than a microwave oven heating a cup of instant. <br />Others have complained bitterly about the sound, but I haven't noticed anything but coffee making sounds like an old percolater. <br />If you have to go back to instant (if your shipment doesn't arrive on time), you really miss this beautiful machine, built to last and last. Great.
How long have you owned it:

Comment:
I rather go to my nearest coffee-shop than brew my own. It only takes Nes-caffe cartridges that are not available to buy locally but online and are price prohibitive.<br />It was a gift and have no option but to let sit idle.<br />Before you buy, think twice!
How long have you owned it:
A month or less
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
