This is a good machine in that it allows you to make either one large or two small cups of coffee at a time, instead of making a whole pot and throwing most of it away. It's also nice because a froth will form on the top of your cup, just like in an expensive coffeehouse.
Once you turn the machine on and wait a couple of minutes for it to warm up, all you do is add water and one or two of the special coffee pods. In minutes, your coffee is ready.
The only problem I have with the machine is that if you don't put the pods in exactly right it can leak all over your kitchen counter. You have to make sure it snaps shut every time.
More pods are becoming available all the time. My favorite are the ones you can use to make hot tea.
There is a 2-year warranty for defects.
