An entry level K-Cup brewing machine, without any added whistles and bells, it will still brew a fine cup of coffee.Please note, I am comparing this brewer to the Cuisinart SS-700 system (). I also have experience with two large, Keurig brewing systems that are used in my office.[NOTE: Go to end of the review for an update about the latest Keurig technology.]WHAT’S IN THE BOXThe Mr. Coffee machine comes fully assembled right out of the box. All you need to do is fill the reservoir with water and place easily on the top of the machine. At the base of the machine there is a removable drip tray. Plug it in and you’re ready. It even comes with 5 sample K-Cups to start you off.THE MACHINE BUILDThe machine itself is made out of lightweight plastic. You don’t get the sense that it is flimsy, but it isn’t as robust as the Cuisinart SS-700 which has a lot more heft and will definitely stay put on your kitchen counter. This is doubly true for the lift handle and brew head of the Mr. Coffee (the thing you lift up so that you can put the K-cup inside the machine). The plastic here is thin and will definitely not hold up to abuse. This makes this more suitable as a home machine than it does for use in a small office, where the machine would likely take more of a beating. The lighter construction does not affect the taste of the coffee at all and is probably a cost cutting measure. (At the time of writing this, the Cuisinart model costs more than twice of what is being charged for the Mr. Coffee model.) However, it may mean that the Mr. Coffee machine may not have quite the longevity of the Cuisinart.A number of cost saving measures were taken to keep the price down. Options for coffee are limited. Servings come in only two sizes: 6 and 10 ounces. (The Cuisinart has 5 sizes between 4 and 12 ounces.) There is no LCD display and there are no strength settings for the coffee. There is no option for a filter within the fluid reservoir (another Cuisinart feature) and there is no special indicator that the fluid level is too low other than a blinking light around the ‘Brew Now’ button. (The Cuisinart flashes and LCD message.) The reservoir itself is rather small–about 40 ounces–so it will only brew about four 10 ounce cups before you have to refill it. Also missing is a cool light that trans-illuminates the fluid reservoir when it is too low. The most frustrating low-end feature is that the cord is very short, meaning that your Mr. Coffee machine has to be within about a foot of an outlet.TASTE OF THE COFFEEStill, none of this seems to matter when it comes to the taste of the coffee. It would be nice to have an 8 ounce setting, but it isn’t really necessary. In my opinion, at sizes above 10 ounces the coffee is just too weak, so larger sizes aren’t all that useful when using K-Cups. Those who like stronger coffee tend to use two K-Cups per cup of coffee on a four or six ounce setting to get that motor oil consistency that they so love. I have never noticed any difference in using a Keurig systems that allow you to change brew strength. The determining factor for the strength of the coffee seems to be limited by the physics of the K-Cup itself. Blinking lights and fancy indicators are fun, but are hardly necessary in such a simple machine.BREWING COFFEEFor those not in the know, to brew the coffee you lift the brew head by the handle, place the K-Cup in the well, and close the apparatus. You select the serving size and then hit the ‘Brew Now’ button. The water is heated and the coffee is brewed quickly (about 3 minutes). The tiny reservoir only holds about 24 ounces of water, meaning that you will refill it frequently. If your cup is shallow (think tea cup) there will be a little, initial splashing as the coffee shoots out the bottom.Just so you know, K-Cups are not necessarily the best way to brew coffee. I prefer using a French Press to get the most out of the bean. (Yeah. I know. I’m a coffee snob.) And if I want to brew a quick pot of coffee that still…

    Not pretty, but it gets the job done…at first Update, one month later:After testing the Mr. Coffee Single Serve Coffee Brewer myself for a while at home, I sent it to work with my husband. And he’s not too terribly happy with it. He reports back that the device works fine if you choose the small cup size. (Go figure: that’s the size I always used!) When he selects the large cup size, the water flows inside the coffee maker right into the drip tray about half the time. The other half of the time, he receives only about half a cup of coffee.I’m not sure what to make of this. I’d call user error, but my husband is a serious coffee-phile (and gearhead) and can operate any kind of coffee brewing/grinding/whathaveyou equipment with ease. He does admit to having turned the device off prematurely a couple of times, but I’m not convinced that this could cause his issues.Given this trouble, I’m revising my review from four to TWO stars and slapping an “approach with caution” sign on it. If you’re looking for a Keurig-style device, it’s probably best to spend the money and buy a Keurig.********Original Review:The Mr. Coffee Single Serve Coffee Brewer is a slightly less expensive alternative to the popular Keurig coffee maker. This product suits the Mr. Coffee name perfectly. It is not sleek or sexy; it has no bells or whistles; in fact, it’s downright utilitarian. But it gets the job done and brews a pretty good little cup of coffee nevertheless.This coffee maker comes out of the box just about ready to go. Take off a couple of plastic bags, peel off a piece of tape or two, wash out and fill the water reservoir, and you’re just a couple of minutes away from a cup of coffee. The controls are basic, and I liked the fact that I did not have to fiddle with anything digital or computerized or possibly smarter than I am.My negative impressions are as follows:–The machine itself is square and clunky looking. Not really something that I want sitting out on my kitchen counter all the time. It looks like…a Mr. Coffee.–The water reservoir is awkward and chunky. Unless you fill it in place with a pitcher or bottle of water, then spillage is a definite possibility, because you need to use two hands to keep it level.–The actual brewing process is not as fast as my Keurig, so those of us with issues with impatience may chafe at the extra few seconds we have to wait until we have our coffee.Positive notes:–This machine makes a nice cup of coffee. It comes out at an excellent and drinkable temperature.–The small cup selection makes strong coffee, which is the way I like it.–Unlike the Keurig, the Mr. Coffee does not leave coffee grinds in the bottom of my coffee cup. I like not having to chew my cup of coffee in the morning.The Mr. Coffee has a slightly different brewing protocol than a Keurig, heating the water and brewing the coffee at one press of a button. If you treat it like a Keurig, you’ll have a drip tray full of coffee and nothing in your cup. So be sure to read the instructions before you brew your first cup, especially if you have used a Keurig brewer in the past.This coffee maker comes with a little 5-cup sampler pack of K-Cups. This is a very nice touch, because it means you can brew a cup of coffee as soon as you pull the device out of the box. But remember, the coffee that the Mr. Coffee brews is only as good as the K-Cup you put in to it. Since I’m a terrible coffee snob (probably a result of living in Seattle for so long), the only one of the sample cups that was palatable to me was the Newman’s. My advice: toss out the samples and buy yourself some Starbucks or Tully’s!Overall, this is a decent enough coffee maker. Not pretty and not fancy but definitely adequate. I think that it’s worth the price.

    Finally good coffee… I purchased the first one at Walmart, returned home, tried it and it did not work! Returned it with no problem, and debated before trying the one more left in the store. I purchased it along with the K-Cup and it all works fine! I love the price of it and the fact it has all the features as the more expensive Keurig coffee makers, but still uses all the Keurig accessories. In the past I have used all kinds of coffeemakers, recently the “Old Fashioned” percolater, stainless steel etc,, but still not great coffee. Now I can enjoy delicious coffee, and am anxious to try the teas, cocoas and other specialty pods. Cindi
