Bought this to use on the weekends, and it does the job well. One cup of coffee, very quick and easy. Simple to use, no filters to buy, automatically shuts off, very handy. The mug being uninsulated is bad (metal plus heat) but the handle and rim are...

Small, convenient, fast

Uninsulated mug, inefficient filter

Bought from another source to replace an earlier model of the same product that finally failed after years of service. This model is higher and will hold larger cups.

Earlier model lasted a long time and I expect the same from this. Easy to clean if you don't use the foolish permanent filter. I buy #2 filters and cut them for a perfect fit, a batch at a time using electric scissors

Previous model was white and easy to see the water level mark. This is black and almost impossible to see the water level, one egg off for that. I use an almost full 2 cup measure and fills the supplied cup almost to the top

i really enjoy having a coffeemaker at home, but now i wish that it is bigger, at least good for three cups.

no extra filter needed ; easy to clean ; easy to use ; make good coffee

really personal coffeemaker, because it only good for one person (at a time) ; the filter is good, but does not do the job 100% well

Great little coffee machine. Makes a hot cup within minutes. Exactly what I wanted

The cup it comes with is not insulated, but I just pour it right into my preferred mug when it is finished

Great coffee maker

 

I bought this coffee maker on Newegg to replace the same exact model that broke after 4 years of use. The reason the previous one broke was entirely my fault--I added water 2 min after I hit the "start" switch and it blew a gasket. Before settling back...

Inexpensive and makes great tasting coffee. I've tried other single cup coffee makers and none are as good as this one

None

Works as advertised ; price

Mug is rather small. Coffee freeks needs a little bigger `large` size mug for a one cup deal

Stealth Brew- almost

 

The Cup is not insulated so it will cool fast, but it is not too big that you can't drink it before then. Over all I am satisfied at only spending ~$20 for this thing, it has lasted me, maybe it will last for you.

I got kicked out of the coffee club because I like real coffee not just dark water as my office mates like to pound all day ; I have not had a problem with it that I didn't create on my own ; Gets nice and hot

To make it strong enough for me it ends up getting messy, so it needs to be cleaned after every use. Just a wipe down really ; This thing is loud. I have to get in the office early so nobody knows I have my own coffee maker here. Not supposed to have it

perfect for one person in a small space

 

I purchased this coffee maker for my 87-year-old mom, who lives in a small apartment. It makes a great cup of coffee and it's easy for her to use. Since it dispenses directly into the mug, she doesn't have to worry about transferring the hot liquid....

Perfect 2 cup coffee maker!

 

All in all, a great product. Takes up little room, and is simple to operate. Perfect for someone who wants a quick cup of coffee--without the hassles of brewing a whole pot.

my favorite coffee pot for one!

 

Thought this was discontinued, so happy to have found it on your web site, was not available other places I searched! After 12 years, my original one was about to die, so very happy to have found it. I ordered two!

Wouldn't this make a great gift for a student, or a commuter? The machine brews right into the thermal travel mug and then shuts itself off, so your favorite coffee lover can simply grab and go!
