I bought the Melitta for it's ease of use and good looks. The first time I used it, the regular coffee was fair and the decaf was bitter. Disappointed, we also bought pods from other coffee makers and stuffed them in the holder. Despite the inelegant process, they didn't leak and the coffee was a little better. I agree with other reviewers that the the water reservoir is too small and it's difficut to fill. I spill a bit every time I refill, but that's me. The unit takes several minutes to heat up to operating temperature for cup number one and the second cup takes almost as long - go figure? Also, the coffee doesn't come out as hot as I like, but pre-warming the cup with hot tap water helps a bit. The tea pods are a waste of time. Basically, the tea's not very good so if that's the reason you are buying this unit, may I suggest you look elsewhere or buy decent loose tea and brew it in a pot like the Brits? The best thing we found you could make with unit is a half-way decent cafe mocca. Try this: Get a big mug. Fill with the contents of a hot cocoa pack. Install your favorite coffee pod. Press the regular mug button. When it finishes, press the smaller mug button (that's right, run water through 1 pod twice). The result is an acceptable cafe mocca - definitely not Starbucks but not $11.00 either. As for that elusive perfect "cuppa" - this isn't going to give it to you. Convenient, good looking, but only a fair cup-a-Joe.

Quick Update: I tried Maxwell House pods over the weekend. Stuffed them in the holder and the result, a very nice cup of coffee. Again, pre-heating the mug with tap water really helped. These pods are made from 100% Arabica beans - great smell and no bitterness. I like a smooth cup and so far, this is it (I had 2 with Sunday breakfast and my NY Times Crossword puzzle.)

I got a really good deal on the MES2R, buy a box of 144 pods for $40 bucks and get the machine for free. So I figured it was worth a shot regardless of all the mixed reviews.

I like, and almost love it! Its not love because my favorite brand (Community Coffee New Orleans Blend) doesn't come in pods. However I have adapted quite well to the Melitta flavors.

This is NOT a machine for coffee addicts or snobs. If you know what crema is and care as to whether or not you get it, then don't buy this machine.

However, if you just need a decent cup of joe to get you going and out the door in the morning, then look for a good deal and give it a try.

If you read the reviews you will find some good tips that I have found to be true. Below is a recap, plus some things I have learned in getting to know my Melitta:

1) Read the instruction book, all that stuff about priming the pump is true and required. In fact, I primed mine several times before using it.

2) If you're not that interested in the tea, use one of the pods and run about 6 - 10 brew cycles through that one pod. (Just keep refilling the water tank about 3 times) to get rid of the plastic / greasy taste before you brew your coffee. You will only need to do this once, to break it in. Also wash the nozzle, mesh filter and pod holder really well.

3) If you like a large cup, but don't like strong coffee, then you are in luck, hit the big mug picture and when it finishes hit the little cup picture and you will have the perfect cup.

4) Yes you can use millstone and folger pods; however you must stuff them in, and be warned you may not get a good seal.

Don't believe everything you read about these machines. They do make good coffee (if you use the right blend) and are reasonably well built. But, the coffee is not coffee house quality. It really is a matter of expectations. I believe the Melitta MES2 is the better choice of the many available in a comparative price range. All one shot coffee makers can leak, some are down right cheaply built and some are over priced, but this is a growing segment of the coffee market and can only improve. I was also amazed at the different filter styles which forces you to use only the maker's particular filter brand. However, you can get away with stuffing a pod from another brand into your MES2 and it will work. I strongly suggest that you visit [...] for an excellent, although more expensive, alternative to one:one brands of coffee. And, these great coffee blends are available in filters that fit the MES2. Over all, I am pleased with the performance of this machine and the price (with rebate) is very competitive. Just remember the basics, filtered cold water, a good coffee pod and a clean machine = an excellent cup of coffee.

I'm very suprised at some of the qualms that people have with this coffee maker. It's not creamy enough? Since when is all coffee creamy on top? I'm glad your Senseo machine does it, but most normal coffee does not have a frothy layer. That being said, I found the quality of this coffee superb. I've tried several different coffee makers, and this ranks the highest. People are complaining that they leak, etc., but this is not a product fault. If you don't load it in correctly, that's what will happen. For those considering buying this, don't let this bother you- I've screwed up loading normal coffee makers more than I've messed up with this one.

I wouldn't recommend this maker to a house full of people, but it is ideal for a single person. I'm in college and I live by myself, and this has to be one of my most favorite things in my apartment. The coffee brews very fast (quicker than what Melitta says it does), great for when i'm running around in the morning. There's a multitude of flavors available which you can get at any major grocery store (and now target carries the tea pods). And finally, its the most affordable (and in my opinion, most aesthetically pleasing) of all the pod machines available. I mean, come on people, it comes in kiwi!

I've had my one:one maker for several months now, and I can honestly say I'd take this machine over any coffee maker out there. I love it!

Quick update: I've now had this for seven months, and still not a single problem. I noticed that someone was complaining about broken pods- I've only had one broken one out of the countless pods I've gone through. Maybe they just had a bad batch. Sorry, that was bugging me.
