- I use it for tea all the time. Depending on the size mug I place a teabag in the filter area and for larger cups I add a second bag into the mug.by Daveswife14/24/2015Was this answer helpful? (6) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- Obviously it's not recommended because one never knows the varied size of tea leaves, etc. The risk you run is that the basket/filter will plug up and then you have HOT water over flow. If you chance using any thing other than coffee, you should be right there in case it backs up. It works great for giving you a great cup of hot water in which you can then put your own tea bag.by JesusIsLordandSavior4/27/2015Was this answer helpful? (2) (0)Was this answer helpful?

- Yes, you can brew tea that is loose and placed in the reusable mesh filter or use tea bags for special teas to brew. This maker is truly worth the purchase.by Cookie50704/27/2015Was this answer helpful? (5) (0)Was this answer helpful?

- If you don't fill the filter with coffee and let the hot water run through, I guess you can.by DoesNotMatter1/19/2015Was this answer helpful? (2) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- Thank you for your question. You may brew tea in the single serve side, simply place the tea bag in the pod holder.by HBBrandsCustomerService1/2/2015Was this answer helpful? (5) (0)Was this answer helpful?

- You can use a pod, which is a premeasured amount of coffee in a little plastic container that you place in the pod adaptor or you can use regular ground coffee with the mesh filter for a single serving. You can use a travel mug to brew into or there is an adaptor to raise a regular coffee cup up to the brewing area. Just fill whatever coffee cup you want to use with water and pour it in so you always have the correct amount of coffee.by Daveswife12/17/2015Was this answer helpful? (10) (1)Was this answer helpful?
- We have only used regular ground coffee on the single serve side. It works fine! The pod is a product by (I think) Sensi. It is not the same as the K-cups.by Almy5/4/2015Was this answer helpful? (5) (1)Was this answer helpful?
- Yes, It has it own mesh filter. We use regular coffee that we drinks when we make a pot.by RallsH2/4/2015Was this answer helpful? (2) (1)Was this answer helpful?
- You can use either one. A pod has pre-measured coffee in it.by flash421562/4/2015Was this answer helpful? (3) (1)Was this answer helpful?
- Yes any type of loose coffee you buy you can use because it comes with a small mesh basket. You can use the mesh basket to scoop your coffee out of the cannister/bag/can so there is no need for a measuring spoon. Or, you can use a Pod. A coffee pod is kind of like a pillow! It's round and made of the paper filters are made from. Inside they place a pre-measured amount of coffee, seal up the "Pillow" and you have a coffee pod. It's smaller than a round coffee coaster. Usually the Senseo brand are 18 for $4.58. They're fast and easy to use and come in various brew strengths, but not always available at walmart. More expensive pods are readily available. I wonder why? Ha!by JesusIsLordandSavior4/25/2015Was this answer helpful? (3) (1)Was this answer helpful?
- Regular ground coffee and it comes with a filter.by stickleg2/4/2015Was this answer helpful? (1) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- you can use regular ground coffee I would suggest not using a really fine ground or it may push through the reusable filter. a pod is just a single server filter do a search for it and you should find examplesby cino722/4/2015Was this answer helpful? (1) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- Thank you for your question. Yes, you can use regular ground coffee on the single serve side.by HBBrandsCustomerService2/4/2015Was this answer helpful? (1) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- You can use regular ground coffee. You may have to experiment with the amounts of water/coffee to use to get the brew strength you like. The pods are made by Senseo and a couple of other brands, and they seem to be a lot harder to find than K-cups.by mzteach192/12/2015Was this answer helpful? (3) (0)Was this answer helpful?

- Depends on how big your cup is. :)) Standard size maybe a minute. the 24 oz thing I put under it, about 2-3 minutes.by SouthernGal20105/3/2015Was this answer helpful? (14) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- It takes about 3 minutes to brew a single cup. Which is about the same as the Keurig. Once you factor in the warmup time on the Keurig.by Normstod4/10/2015Was this answer helpful? (8) (2)Was this answer helpful?
- about 60 secsby coffemate24/10/2015Was this answer helpful? (7) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- It takes about 3-4 minutes depends how many oz of water you will be brewing. This brews up to 14 ozs. It's definitely not as quick as the Keurig, but I always set mine on the auto timer during the week for work or any other time that I know I will be pressed for time.by Cory13134/10/2015Was this answer helpful?
