My newest Coffee Brewer: Mr. Coffee Single Serve Brewing System

A couple years ago we bought a small sized Keurig "mini" brewer to use on vacations, traveling, etc.  My husband recently switched jobs and his new office does not have a coffee maker available so I sent our mini brewer plus with him for his office.  Unfortunately it worked 1 day.  The 2nd day it spit out about 1 cm of coffee and after that - nothing.  It's not that it was blocked; it was just not sucking up anything. 

Usually at this point (being Keurig owners since 2005) I would just descale.  But alas; when it won't suck, you can't do ANYTHING about it.  So we tried to take it apart to check if the tubing had come loose.  Keurig makes billions on their products because it's almost completely impossible to get the darn machine apart.  6 screws in the first layer results in a second layer.  More screws out of the second layer resulted in a third layer.  Then, there is NO way to get that big, heavy center out.  Every nook and cranny sealed.  At this point we decided it would just go in the trash anyway so we had nothing to lose and got out a heavy duty screw driver to pry it apart.  No dice.  They SERIOUSLY do not want anyone to be able to fix their own machines!!!!


Into the trash it went.

After some online research, I was impressed with the reviews of the Mr. Coffee Single Serve Coffee Brewer, (24-Ounce, Black version).  Generally speaking thousands of people LOVE it and overwhelmingly I kept reading over and over how people were replacing their Keurigs with the Mr. Coffee versions and they were so much happier with them.

I didn't want to order and wait for a new coffee machine as I'd like to send one with my husband to work tomorrow, so I went to my local Best Buy where I found the Mr. Coffee Single Serve Coffee Brewer online for $67 and they price matched their own online price.  However, I found it on Amazon for $63.74 today so it's an even better price than I paid.
