It tasted like hot water with coloring in it.!!!! I tried and tried different settings/coffee pods/reusing pod twice etc and NOTHING!!! Same result. This is a machine for Tea Toddlers Only!!! Gave the piece of you know what to a friend who drinks weak coffee - Loves it!!!

Comment:
Perfect for those who want a fresh brewed cup of coffee without having to make & waste a full pot. At the same time that I purchased the Brewer I also bought a refillable filter cup (go to www.solofill.com) which allows you to use your own coffee instead of having to buy the Vue paks. It works great and eliminates all those plastic cups from the environment.
How long have you owned it:
Three-to-six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
