There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The Coffee tasted as good as drip coffee can taste and it took about 10 mins to brew the pot. One important thing to note, when i made the K-Cup, i checked the burner for the 12 cup pot and it was NOT hot which was nice to see. If anything comes up will be sure to update this review.
I also like that both sides have a very visible measure gauge for the water. The brew basket is the same as well as the carafe. I also like the holder for single cup ground coffee better (make sure you do NOT fill above the Max line with grounds). For the k-cup and ground coffee this maker seems to have more pressure.
You can brew BOLD on the single side as well as the carafe side.
Under the single side the platform for a cup also holds the single ground coffee holder. It just lifts off to use a tall cup.
The single side is so easy to clean and with the tab, it is easier to empty a hot K-cup without burning your fingers.
The ONLY problem I have ever had, is the printing on the buttons, they labels easily wipe off.
For starters, the carafe side makes a great pot of coffee. The machine must be pulled out from under my upper cabinetry to fill with water. This is something that has to be done with most coffee makers, but this Flex Brew model is so large and monstrous that even pulled to the edge of the counter, the lid doesn't open all the way, making filling the reservoir located at the very back of the machine awkward. I often dripped water into the coffee grounds.
The single serving side is a great idea...in fact, we really liked the single serve side on our previous Flex Brew model. However, we found the coffee made on this machine was inconsistent. The included inserts allow you to easily use k-cups or your own grounds.
Although you have the convenience of using k-cups with this machine, it is not like most Keurigs. You must fill the single-serve side reservoir with water EACH time you want a cup. This is not that big of a deal, but if you're used to the instant gratification of a genuine Keurig...well, it'll take a bit more labor on your part with the Flex Brew.
Using k-cups usually made a good cup of coffee with this machine. IF you did not change the brew strength to 'BOLD.' You would think that the 'bold' option would give you bold coffee...not so. Each time we used this brew setting, we ended up with a watery cup o' joe. Blech. On the 'regular' setting, the k-cup coffee turned out (mostly) as expected.
When using our own grounds, we had better results, again - as long as we kept the brew setting to 'regular.'
So, generally, the machine does what it says. It just needs a little time to adjust to and plenty of room on your countertop.
It's good. I am not sorry for my purchase. But I don't feel like it is "right" for me but it could be for somebody.
So here is what I have to say to see if it jives with you and your life.
First, I am a coffee lover. Not a snob, not emphatic, but I love coffee. I drink it black, I can easily drink half a pot in the morning if I don't have to run off to work or anything.
The brew on this coffee maker is okay. It doesn't make a bad pot of coffee by any means, but I also don't think there is anything spectacular about it either. I'm still playing with the subtleties of making my perfect pot, but it seems selecting the bold brew helps (I presume it heats the water a bit hotter than standard brew).
I feel the opening at the top for the water reservoir is good, with plenty of space to pour the water in.
I feel the carafe itself feels solid and pours well.
The overall design of the pot is decently thought out and feels good.
Most of my negatives have to do with the single brew side (which I will get to momentarily).
There are two tiny things I wish were available on this model.
One, I wish the power plug was at a 90 degree angle instead of a standard straight plug. Being so big and so wide it will go in front of my socket...which I don't mind if I could slide it all the way back to the wall but the plug gets in the way.
Two, where's the white model? There isn't an option for that. But all of my appliances are white so it would be nice to have things match.
A related potential "negative" I would say is that if you want to get a gold mesh permanent filter for the main brewer, it doesn't seem to fit well. They are fairly small and sit low in the normal plastic "basket" area where you put the paper filter. I find using a paper filter alone is far easier and more convenient. No big deal in the end, but I felt I should mention it because I thought I could get a permanent filter and have it be a nice match.
The single cup side (keurig style) is a nice addition...with some caveats.
It is part of the reason I chose this coffee maker, wanting that fast option if I only had time for 1 cup...or wanted to take it with me.
It works, and I like the fact that it comes with it's own permanent gold mesh filter if you want to not use an actual k-cup or other brand (and yes, it will take any brand you buy at the market).
That filter fits in the base under the single brew side (which holds the mug up high for less splatter or you can remove it if you are brewing into a tall travel mug). I nit pick that putting the filter back into the storage area is not convenient. It fits very precisely into the open space, so if it is off a millimeter then the container won't close. Not the end of the world but far more frustrating than it needs to be.
There is a separate water reservoir for the single brew side, which is fine. It would have been cool to have a single water source, but that's not a big deal in my mind.
What IS a big deal in my mind is that whatever water you put into that reservoir will brew. So you can't figure you are going to make 2 cups, one for you and one for somebody else and fill it 16oz. You have to fill 8oz (or whatever your desired amount) let that water heat, then brew your cup, then fill another 8oz of water and let that heat and then brew the second cup. It would have been far more convenient to have the entire water heat, then be able to select your cup size, oz of water to brew with, etc... like you can on an actual Keurig machine.
It pretty much makes the single brew side literally a single brew side. You can basically use it one way, and one way only. That is a pretty bad design in my mind and removes the convenience of having that side built in.
At the end of the day, it works. All of it is totally functional and I am not dissatisfied, but I am not totally satisfied either.
The machine is big and takes up a lot of counter space, so for that amount of real estate I would probably rather have a separate pot brewer and single brewer machine and get better versions of both.
