When first receiving my brewer I thoroughly enjoyed the convenience. Some k-cup coffee brands, are too bitter for my taste, so I often swith to a purchased adaptor that allows me to brew my own brands, and that helped. However, using the adaptor with my brand doesn't turn out as well as when I used my regular drip coffee maker. Perhaps because pre-ground coffee is not ground to the size needed for the k-cup coffee makers. I was disappointed to find, too, that I'm limited to 8 oz of water per brew; were there an option for adding a bit more water, I could adjust my pre-packaged k-cup brews to taste.
Also, four months after purchase the brewer began processing only about half the water, stopping the cycle with a splattering "ppppouffff", partially through the brewing process. I've cleaned the exit needles and have used vinegar as recommended under "troubleshooting", but the issue still surfaces after a couple of cups. I liked the price of the product...you can't beat it, and I trusted the Mr. Coffee name. However overall I'm disappointed I spent $80 on a piece of equipment that doesn't deliver any better than my ever-dependable drip coffee maker.
