I have not had this machine for long so I'm going to tell you about my first impressions with it. The first thing I noticed is that it is super easy to use. Cleaning does not take long and it is easy to maintain.
The second thing I noticed is that it is very noisy. I like to make coffee while my child is sleeping and I'm afraid it will wake him up. I have not tried it yet during nap time since I still use a regular coffee pot most of the time. I bought this bought because my 4-cup one broke and sometimes I just want a single cup of coffee.
Mine came as a special with the dark roast pods. I thought they were way too strong so I've been making them with more water than I normally would. The other flavors are not as intense but you can easily make your coffee weaker by adding more water and/or hitting the two cup button while only making one cup.
