"Keurig Machines."

I like that it only does one cup at a time- saves space not having a water reserve. After a few days it regulated itself. We are more addicted to coffee than we were before this machines arrival. Expert and BLUE capsules are identical and work with either machine. I like that it only does one cup at a time- saves space not having a water reserve. And, you get a fresh cup in a little under two minutes. When I first saw this new upgraded K-Mini model I got really interested.

"I love it so far."

This is what made me a fan of coffee. The control panel is sturdy and replaceable. We still have our older Keurig with the larger reservoir. This machine does not have a froth milk only option either. You will notice I have capitalized HOT. It's been 2 weeks and my coffee maker is still working with no issues whatsoever. Absolutely the most fantastic expresso and coffee maker.

"Easy to set up and use."

But I am glad I chose this machine. I love the fact that I can make all types of coffee in one machine. When I taste coffee that is flavored the way I prefer, the result pleases me. The one that ships with it works well for me, using fresh ground coffee. If your unit tries to make a cup then stops short of filling the cup, try this first. I love all of the keurigs I've ever owned. Absolutely the most fantastic expresso and coffee maker.

"Easy to use."

We bought 2 of these for the office. After doing that, the unit worked fine. I totally recommend it,with the cool frother version. The cappacino does stay hot to warm for awhile. This heat causes the air to expand and forces it out of the brewer. It fits perfectly in the space I have, and it's so easy to use. I love all of the keurigs I've ever owned.

"We keep ours for 2 hrs."

If you want the max amount of water in there, it will be weaker coffee. I got the grey color and annoyingly it took three weeks to get here. The first one I purchased quit after 2 days. It seems to get the brew temp up and consistent. I purchased for work since it's a slimmer design. Got a 4 pack for around 10 bucks on Amazon. The 8 ounce pods make a decent cuppa joe as well.

"So far, so good."

Expert and BLUE capsules are identical and work with either machine. I'm baffled why anyone would think 2 minutes is too long to wait for a cup of coffee. This is the closest you can get to a hand pour over in a machine. I live in a small efficiency apartment with limited counter space. We are all day coffee drinkers so we bought this for our home. That's why it's called a single serve brewer. I love all of the keurigs I've ever owned.

  • ZaKura Large French Press Coffee Maker, Tea Maker, Stainless Steel Filter, 34 Ounce/1 Liter, Copper
  • PREMIUM QUALITY: The main body of this French press is made of durable chrome housing and heat-resistant borosilicate glass breaker. It won’t absorb flavors or odors.

  • RETRO INDUSTRIAL DESIGN: Industrial design uses simple, powerful and rich rhythm lines express the professional personal style and complete taste of owner. The frame and handle shield the glass carafe and protect coffee lovers from heat and burns.Bright ancient bronze appearance makes the French press retro, elegant and mysterious.
  • ULTRA-FINE FILTER: This French press has 304 stainless steel ultra-fine filter. The filtering system was built up with three level filtration which is really good at compressing the granules. That will retain heat and allow for better flavor for your coffee or tea.
  • EASY TO USE AND CLEAN: Take out the lid and filter, put coffee powder and hot water, wait for 4 minutes and then press the plunger down slowly, the work is finished. Also it is easy to clean because the filter can be disassembled easily. Say goodbye to expensive paper filters and capsules.

"I found it!"

Expresso is hot and milk is frothed perfectly. This is the closest you can get to a hand pour over in a machine. You can buy the equally good but less expensive Lavazza BLUE capsules. After a few days it regulated itself. I totally recommend it,with the cool frother version. There is a wire basket within, that holds the paper filter. I love the good taste of my coffee and II like strong black coffee.

Best decision we made was to take our own pods and coffee maker. The control panel is sturdy and replaceable. Overall, great buy with the 25% off coupon. You can buy the equally good but less expensive Lavazza BLUE capsules. I think for buyers it will come down to taste of pod choices, not performance. That one has been with us since 2012. It will hold a great deal of ground coffee, easily 100 grams.

"Bought for travel."

The machine has interchangeable spray heads. The Keurig pod is double the size- no way it's cramming in the slot. Had it two months, so far no problems. I can make a single cup now that is either small, medium, or large. 5 weeks and acted the same way--just wold not make coffee. Well, this machine can help with that. It will hold a great deal of ground coffee, easily 100 grams.

"I just LOVE this thing."

The coffee flavor is definitely better. It continues to make a great cup of coffee particularly when serving several people. The replacement stopped working after 2. So easy to have the machine hooked up to a water line. It seems to get the brew temp up and consistent. The machine has interchangeable spray heads. So far I love this machine and all the coffee that came with it.

"As I hope you do as well!"

When I taste coffee that is flavored the way I prefer, the result pleases me. Be sure to note that the carafe is a separate purchase. Great Latte but it is so loud I can't use it in the morning or it wakes everyone up. I live in a small efficiency apartment with limited counter space. This machine does not have a froth milk only option either. I'm hoping there are a lot of choices for this machine. The filter holder is robust, with a great handle.

"Now this a."

There is volumetric brewing with available pre infusion. Don't forget to order the thermal server with this unit. Best decision we made was to take our own pods and coffee maker. Espresso is good but the other Types with milk is not as good as I expected . Espresso is good but the other Types with milk is not as good as I expected . Well, this machine can help with that.

"Fits the bill."

This machine does not have a froth milk only option either. I think they should include the thermal pot. If you want the max amount of water in there, it will be weaker coffee. The unit detects excessive back pressure and stops. Oh I've been using it every single day since I got it btw. The milk reservoir gets stuck and is very difficult to take out. Pictures also show the Keurig Dunkin pod vs the one that came with this machine.
