I would not recommend this machine to anyone even though it gives out a great coffee aroma during the first few months
I just bought this coffee maker for my son that is now in college.
I was hoping that he could bring this machine to his dorm for his morning coffee.
We have a couple of the melitta javapod coffees but you can get much better coffee from other sources.
At first we were very happy with this machine as it is much easier to fill, it is not as noisy, and seems to heat up more quickly.
But after a couple of months, the quality of coffee it produces became horrible and the taste was just too diluted!
The manufacturer claims that only the javapods will work in this - but that is not true - even the melitta pods are malfunctioning.
Several other pods are identical in size and shape and are much better in quality.
I would not recommend this machine to anyone even though it gives out a great coffee aroma during the first few months.
