No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I use the product to make a single cup when the morning brew is exhausted. It takes a couple of times to get ir right, but you can prepare coffee for single use much more economically that the pod machines. It is more flexible than the pod machines in measuring coffee for strength. On the other hand, it cannot be hurried any more than a Keurig can. It has a normal and robust settings--and there is a difference. <br /><br />It is not our main coffee maker, it is our late-morning-afternoon maker.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
