Comment:
I generally use this product when I only want to brew one or two cups. It takes two minutes to brew a cup and I don't mind waiting that amount of time. It uses the standard K-Cups which are easy to find, even in my small town.<br /><br />The K-Cups are more expensive than using my own coffee but I have yet to use my own coffee and not wind up with grounds in the bottom of my cup.<br /><br />But the biggest drawbacks to me are that if I want to brew a stronger cup of coffee I have to use less water, and there is no way to keep the coffee hot until I'm ready to drink it.
