I am looking for a new pod style coffee maker. There are so many options out there and would really like to buy a good one! Does anyone have any advice they can share with me? I am interested in what to look for as i am searching for a new system now... Thanks in advance!

I recommend a Keurig because of how many K-cups (pods) you have to choose from. Or i highly recommend the Cuisinart SS-700 (i use this one). It uses the K-cups but it has more features than some of the keurig machines i have seen. I pasted a guide below that will help you find some information! Good luck!

Both the Cuisinart and the Keurig have good features and similar performance. I bought the Cuisinart and then was given a Keurig. Cuisinart: has a larger water reservoir, so it need refilling less often. However, it is noisier, and there is a default cup size that you set. If you put in a larger mug to fill, you just select the larger size from the touch screen. There are several models of Keurig, but mine is quieter than the Cuisinart, and when you make coffee you push one of three buttons to select the dispensing amount -- marginally easier than remembering to change the setting on the Cuisinart. Neither of the machines will fit under my kitchen cabinets if I use the K-cup drawer base that you can buy separately. If I now had to buy a new one, I'd buy either one, selecting the one with the largest reservoir if the price differential wasn't too much.

Keurig has a wide varitey of coffee and awesome customer service. We recently decided to donate our keurig because we feel completely in love with our nespresso and didn't want to buy the capsules for two machines, but while we had it was very nice.

I have been using a Nespresso machine for about 6 years. It is all about the coffee for me and I found other machines to have less blends available for their pods, and I find the machines attractive.

There is a Nespresso boutique close by, so it is easy for me to purchase and recycle the pods.

There are William & Sonoma shops that sell various machines and they let you taste the coffee, a great option before purchasing.

My first machine was the Nespresso Essenza C101 Espresso Maker, which I gifted to my daughter a few years ago when she went off to university. I then bought the Nespresso D111-US-BK-NE1 Citiz Espresso Maker.

Both of them work perfectly and Nespresso sends yearly coupons for up to $100 off the purchase of another machine so I use them for gifting!

the only caveat I'd have is nespresso is less a coffee machine and more an espresso machine. For someone who wants a large hardy cup of coffee they'd be using three capsules.

I adore my nespresso and that's all I use anymore, but I wouldn't qualify it as a "coffee" machine

Hi Becky,

I would have to agree with you, but the "Luengo" pods do make a large cup, I use them in the morning!

Senseo is the pot I have used and love it.... Can be purchased on amazon or e.bay for the pot... the pods I purchase on amazon..... I have had coffee from keurig and don't find their pods or k cups any better than senseo... keurig cups are expensive and I truly think they are over rated. Pods on amazon are offered from different manufactures, I personally prefer the senseo coffee pods.... Good luck.

BUNN MCU Single Cup Multi-Use Brewer. Uses K-cup, pods and loose coffee or tea.

I have a Keurig , given to me as a gift. I prefer Instant or fresh ground coffee in a French press. I think it's all a fad.

If you want to use your own coffee instead of K-cups, do NOT get a Kuerig. It is a device from Hell. K-cups are excessively expensive and in limited choices. If you decide to use java jigs or another type of k-cup for your own coffee, expect problems every 5-10 cups, because the Kuerig is designed to push K-cups. That's all. Anything else and the machine jams. This machine is a terrible design for customer satisfaction. Word to the wise....
