I love this single service coffee maker for keurig. This is the 2nd one i have had. I thought the first one was broken but after the new one came (i had to order new as i have to have my cup of coffee and it came the next day) but i found out the old one was only clogged and i fixed the clog and gave it away then. It is so easy to clean the needle type thing that gets clogged with a pin or needle. My first one was exactly like this one only in black.
We have a full-sized keurig at home but it ws too big to travel with us in our trailer. It works well, my only concern is the small size water reservoir – its a little too small for the standard mug so the brew is a little stronger and the fluid a little less. But we’re enjoying it – several times a day.
This was a gift for my wife for christmas. She never has more than one cup of coffee a day, if that so this works out for her. The k-cups are more expensive and this would definitely not be ideal for making coffee for a lot of company but it takes up less counter space, which we don’t have a lot of, the color goes with our americana themed kitchen and it works for how often she drinks coffee. I don’t drink it all so they last. The instructions however were not in our box and she has yet to figure out how to brew a larger cup.
I read a lot of reviews and this machine seemed to be a great product for the price – it is. We are totally happy with it, only down side is we are drinking a lot more coffee and hot chocolate than we used to. Only gave it 4 stars because i wish it held more = bigger single cup, but none that i saw did, so. One year later and my wife still loves it.

I really enjoy coffee and with this coffee maker the options are endless. If i want a regular cup of what i drink for work, i just pop in the optional filter and i’m ready for a quick cup. If i want something stronger, something smoother, a bit nicer, then i pop in one of my favorites and i’m racking those up. I don’t often do something special just for me, but this, well, i deserved it and so far not having it would be a real sad loss. Also, my husband likes hot chocolate and how quick and easy it is to pop in a k-cup of chocolate for him. And i thought sliced bread was a great invention.
I really like this single serve coffee maker. I also bought the ekobrew filter and it works great. Eliminate waste, save time in the morning, and enjoy a very good cup of coffee on my drive to work. With ekobrew filter i am not limited to just the coffee that comes in those pre packaged k-cups. I can get any other kind of ground coffee and enjoy that. I found the best k-cups to be the donut shop coffee.
It does what it needs to for one 8oz cup of coffee. I love that you don’t have to spend an arm and leg for one of the hottest items around. Just pour 8oz of water (there is a maximum water line). Insert your cup and press handle down and it brews in less than 2 min. Makes an excellent hot cup of coffee.
I bought this item back in oct and it was the perfect size for my kitchen countertop. My husband and kids use it every day, more then i do. Great with the k-cups for making tea, coco and coffee or even your own personal flavors. The only thing i’m not too happy about is that you have to keep filling the water tank up for each cup of coffee and it only serves an 8 oz cup size. But all in all it’s a nice little coffee maker and convenient for someone on the go that just want’s a cup of coffee anytime of the day.
Originally i had purchased a keurig b40 coffee maker and i returned it after using it twice. I really wanted a coffee maker that used the k-cups so i did a google search and found this coffee maker and amazon had the best price. When it arrived i quickly ripped it out of the box and made a cup. I held my breath hoping it didn’t sound like a jet plane taking off (like the keurig coffee maker did. It sounded like a normal coffee maker brewing. It made a full 9 oz cup of coffee (unlike the keurig. It was hot enough for me (the keurig was way to hot for my liking. ) in my opinion this coffee maker is not only made better but also looks better than the keurig model that i had. It’s not huge (like the keurig) and since i don’t have a lot of counter space this was a big plus for me. This coffee maker was by far a better value and it is perfect for my needs. The sample k-cups that came with it another plus. I’d rate this a 10 if i could.
Can’t beat this one for the money. You can have a cup any time without making a whole pot, and if someone wants a different blend, strength ( bold, med. ), flavor, tea, or hot chocolate, k-cup, they can brew it without making a whole or half a carafe. One cuo at a time, and it doesn’t take long. You can buy the plastic cup filters & use your own coffee and save on the k-cups, or if you’re out of k-cups. Only drawback if you can call it that, is it takes one cup of water in the filler at a time, but thats not a biggie to us. Excellent delivery time and packaging.
Purchased this in december of 2013 from amazon. This mr coffee makes a great cup of coffee, tea, hot chocolate, or whatever else you can find in a k-cup. We’ve since switched over to the refillable k-cup strainer that we can put our own coffee grounds into and this mr.
I bought this brewer for several reasons 1) my older son likes flavored coffee (my husband does not), he can pick from numerous flavors now and for only one cup & not a whole pot; 2) my younger son and myself like other types of drinks (tea, hot chocolate, cider, etc); 3) no reservoir for water to sit in and grow mildew; and 4) i really like the price. The variety of k-cups is exciting. I purchased the 35 k-cup variety pack (from amazon) to get started then purchased pumpkin spice coffee, lemonade and iced tea (brew over ice k-cups), the boys and i are really enjoying our drinks. I also like the idea of heating water to the right temperature without using a tea kettle or the microwave for brewing tea using tea bags in the cup. The brewer is working great and looks nice and compact on the counter sitting next to my husband’s full-size coffee pot. I plan to buy a reuseable “k-cup” so my husband can try out his coffee for a single cup. He roasts his own green coffee beans and grinds them daily for his full-size coffee pot.
Making coffee with this machine could hardly be simpler – pop in the coffee, pour in the water, push the button. In just a hair under 2 minutes (1:57 to be exact) we’ve got a nice hot cup of coffee. We’re tea drinkers at our house but now we can make coffee for a guest, or when we’re in the mood for a change from our “usual,” without the waste of making a whole pot. The compact size is great in our small kitchen. The k-cups are extremely handy, but i also purchased an ekobrew re-fillable cup to go along with this and it fits perfectly.
My husband absolutely loves this mr. It’s simple to use, produces the perfect cup of coffee with no waste and clean up is a breeze. He loves his so much that we gave this one as a gift. The gift recipient loves his, tooif you know a coffee lover who won’t pay for the more expensive keurig machine they’ll be thrilled with this mr. It uses the same technology but other reviews indicate that it’s more reliable in the long run. Ours is working like a champ so far and i think this one will too.
This is our first k cup brewer. Convenient because one of us drinks decaf. Still experimenting with coffee brands and flavors. Overall, we like the strength and temperature it delivers, and the fact that each cup is fresh brewed. Also, small footprint does not take up a lot of counter space. Fyi, ez cup system works very well with it. Would have given it 5 stars, but the first one arrived as a repackaged ‘doa’ unit – bummer, as it was a christmas present. Thankfully, amazon customer service made the switch fast and hassle free. Update: it lasted one year and one week.
Coffee is definitely a good value, especially if you snag one on sale (i got mine on amazon for $55). It works well and is easy to use, brews a cup in under 2 minutes. Mug, so it’s perfect for me — designed to brew an 8-oz. Cup, but the reservoir does accommodate 9 ounces. Water reservoir would be nice. Quite a few of the k-cups containing “bold” or dark roasts yield a brew that’s way too strong for me. A number of others reviewers have complained that the coffee doesn’t come out hot enough.
I wanted to try the k cup coffee makers for the convenience and those times when i only want a cup. I bounced around from some of the higher end units and finally decided to buy the mr. Coffee since it was much less money lost if i didn’t like it. That said i am glad i went the way i did. This machine is quiet and completes the process in around three minutes. There is no reservoir so you fill it every time. It makes a decent cup of coffee in my opinion. The one thing i have learned is that if you want good k cup coffee you need to understand the limits. You have to make the coffee the way the machine does, not the way you want if you are like me a use 14oz mugs. The limits are not with the machines though, it is the k cups.
It makes various drinks using the k cups. I used the reusable k cup but i wasn’t very happy from the result, it was just like water so i’m searching for tricks to use the reusable k cup.
It’s a very good coffee machine and it works fine. The problems that arise from the machine are more from the coffee than the machine. If you open up the k-cups most coffee ones have filters, but when you get into the flavored and iced whatnot, those are powdered ones that are suppose to disolve in the water. Sometimes they don’t and that’s how clogs happen. I would suggest rinsing it out once a month and every few months use vinegar for a rinse.
Bought it for a christmas gift for mother in law. She only drinks one cup a day, so this was perfect for her. The only complaint is you have to put water in each time you make a cup. If you make more than 1 cup a day, suggest the bigger ones with the reservoir for water. This is the lowest priced of the kuerig type coffee makers i’ve seen, so if cost is an issue and you don’t mind putting in water each time, then a good one to purchase. The compact size, is nice too, doesn’t take up much counter space.
I do rinse it with distilled water following brewing with water containing salts. I use 8 ounce bottled water for brewing so no measuring required. So far no problem with any build up of deposits. Only drawback is only 8 ounce of coffee.
This coffee maker replaced a very cheaply made black and decker single serve coffee maker for my office cubicle. There is no cheap plastic used on this very sturdy mr. Coffee brewer, however, it does not brew coffee as hot as the keurig but that’s when a microwave comes in handy. Its water reservior is limited to holding only 1 – 1 1/2 cups of water, therefore it cannot brew a very tall cup of coffee. Still, i am happy that i bought this coffeemaker. I no longer have to deal with coffee filters and scooping coffee grinds that end up everywhere on my desk. I just stick in the k-cup, brew and toss the used k-kup into the trashenjoy.
