The final "new-to-me" coffee maker that was featured in the marketing email that I actually took the time to read and not just delete. I've been in a cave lately when it comes to coffee makers. I've not been in the market for one since last April (pre-wedding reception coffee bar) and then after that life got insane for awhile. Now, getting over a bought with the flu, I'm spending a lot of time sitting on my exhausted, fatigued backside and actually reading some of my emails... which is how I found out about this little guy.
REASON NUMBER ONE I LIKE HIM? He doesn't use pods! Yeah, I do use coffee pods (k-cups) but I also feel a bit guilty every time I do as those little things have been around long enough now you can place them end to end and circle the moon and back. But those little eco-cups were messy and often, I found the lids to snap right off and break too easily. This little machine solves that.
Like it's big brother, it uses a filter and your own ground coffee, but you still get that great flavor of a single serve coffee and not a whole gross-tasting and often times burnt whole pot of coffee. And no plastic k-cup pod is needed!
