My 1st Five Am Minutes
Coffee brewed by the time my teeth are brushed! I use Sam's Club 'Daily Chef' K Kups...a good price. McDonalds coffee is a coffee that tastes as good as it smells because they brew it at a hot temp. Upon using this brewer, ~ I can do the same thing at home. This one brews HOTTER, more flavorful coffee than my two past brewers. Hopefully, it will last me a good while.

Best Uses
It was about 2 months or so after I received it as a gift, it will now only steam and not brew the coffee. I at first thought it was the K-cup brand I was using. 12/2014 (a year after getting it) I tried it again, but nope it's definitely this inferior product. Don't waste your money!
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
