Not terrible, but not that great either. Meh. It's works alright, but it's also very slow. It takes ages to reset for the next cup. That really needs to be fixed. Other than that, I've had no issues with it. Just always remember to use filtered water in the reservoir, and you'll be set. The coffee is pretty darned weak, though. Don't use it for tea. You will get the poorest excuse for a brewed cup of tea I've ever seen. Use it for hot water and then add a tea bag.

Poor quality brew, defective
We got one as a gift. The coffee strength is very weak. The overall cost is much higher than drip systems. Coffee quality is much lower than grind-your-own with much fewer choices.<br /><br />Ours broke after ~2 months of use. Google keurig prime for the apparently very common problem. We will be returning it.
