    Super Hot Coffee but leaks

    It brews really hot coffee, but I didn't like that after brewing any amount of cups on the pot, when you open the top lid it leaks water on the back of the coffeemaker. It seems it's due to the water condensation from the water steam while brewing. I had the Hamilton Beach DualBrew and never had a problem, but it was time to upgrade.

    Good brewing temperature . Filling of reservoir is not very easy also the lid to the pot itself is flimsy. All in all, coffee is very good.

    Happy that this has a smaller footprint than our previous coffeemaker (which had an espresso maker and milk frother which we never used). So far this is working fine (day 3). Our only complaint is that the coffee carafe lid does not seem to flip open to fill. it has to be removed and it is not easy to get a grip on it.

    Coffee pot looks and works great. Only minor inconveniences are: 1. The pot lid does not hinge, so you have to remove the lid to fill it. 2. Pouring the water from the pot into the back of the coffee maker is tricky. The water reservoir lid is in the way, and the open space to pour is too small. Maybe move the filter to the other side of the reservoir? 3. The water reservoir for the single serve side is a bit small, but is very easy to remove and refill. Overall, we love the coffee maker and would buy it again. We love the additional counter space gained by removing our other single serve system.

    Really Like Integrated K-cup Brewer

    Was concerned about other reviews about issues with messy overflows. Been using it a month now with no problems. We do make sure the K-cups are fully seated. I like the bold brew setting. Only complaint is that it is difficult to completely empty the carafe of water as the coffee maker lid gets in the way

    K-Cup side blows tops off cups-can't recommend

    This machine is a real disappointment. The K-Cup side consistently forces too much water and too high a flow into the cup, separating the lid from the cup body and therefore washing coffee grounds all over the inside of the holder and into the coffee cup below. We are using Keurig brand cups plus others and we get the same results. The drip side is passable but pouring water into the tank there takes a steady hand and someone rather tall as the opening is toward the back and is relatively small. A real disappointment from an engineering standpoint and therefore not worth the price.

    The craft lid snaps on hard to put on and take off. You have to start brew then after turn the auto off on. If not the you have to turn the machine off manually. The K-cup you have to run it twice to get a normal mug of coffee. Our Hamelton Beach Flexbrew is a much nice maker at half the cost. One button to brew shuts off auto without manually switcing. K-cup feature makes a full mug with one push of a button.

    Full Pots and K-Cups Living Together in Harmony

    We had been k-cup users for a long time and found that the selection of k-cups has become more limited and the cost has gotten more expensive. We also missed the flavor and process of the good old fashioned drip brew coffee along with the wide variety of ground or whole bean coffee available at a lower price. This machine allows us to have the best of both worlds and has worked well. The k-cup side heats the water insanely fast and is virtually silent compared to our older machine. The standard coffee pot side is pretty much what you would expect and adds the ability to select a bolder setting for stronger flavor which we appreciate. The only issues with this machine are the fact that condensation builds up on the drip side and manages to run down the back and make a puddle on the counter when we open the lid to take out the grounds and/or fill the water reservoir. The reservoir is also a bit tough to reach when filling it up with water. @@@@@@@@ The k-cup side is very convenient and has a removable tank that even has a small handle. @@@@@@@
