2-Way Brewing Options
Whichever way you decide to brew, the 2-Way Brewer lets you do both. For a single cup when you’re on the go, the single-serve side lets you add grinds directly into the mesh filter that fits the brew basket or insert a soft pod with the pod holder. For the stronger caffeine fixes or on days you want to enjoy cup-after-cup without brewing each time, the carafe-side makes a full 12-cup pot for your drinking disposal. And if you forget to turn it off, no worries. The Two-Way Brewer’s nonstick, keep-hot plate retains the piping-hot coffee after brewing and shuts off automatically after two hours.
Brew in Advance and Wake Up to Hot Coffee
Want to sleep in for five more minutes? Go ahead, get some more beauty sleep and take advantage of the built-in, programmable clock and timer. Its hour and minute features let you program your ideal coffee-drinking time up to 24 hours in advance.
Single-Serve Brew Function
With the mesh filter that’s included, adding your flavored, decaf or premium roast brand coffee grinds couldn’t be easier. Just remember that more isn’t always necessarily better in this case; use slightly less coffee grinds to avoid overflow and weaker-tasting coffee. Also, when planning to brew, look for coffee beans that were recently roasted (within a week is best) and grind them every time you make a fresh cup.
Brewing with Soft Pods
No time for measuring or scooping? Prefer the convenience of quickly dropping in a pre-packaged, pre-flavored pod? The Two-Way Brewer is designed with a pod holder that brews any brand of soft pod coffee and still gives coffee drinkers the complete sensory experience of tasting freshly ground coffee, without the hassle of messy grinds or exact measuring. For coffee lovers who live for the pleasure of roasting their own beans every day, this Two-Way Brewer offers an added bonus for the extra effort. Equipped with a Brew Strength Selector, you can you choose Regular and give your tastebuds the simplicity of standard medium-grind coffee, or you can go Bold and select a decaf, finer grind or a premium roast brand, such as Starbucks or Melitta for richer flavor.

What I really loved about this machine was/is the concept. However, when I was deciding to purchase, I thought that it required the Senseo pads for the Single cup brew as there was very little info in the product features.
After receiving it, I was pleasantly surprised that the single cup brewing contained a little permanent filter that can be used with standard coffee grinds, awesome don't need to pay for the Senseo if I don't want to. It also came with a pack of 18 senseo pads as well.
Last night was perfect test of the single cup concept. I had already programmed and prepped my 7AM standard coffee brew, however I still wanted a cup of coffee (this happens often). So I switched over to the single cup and brewed my cup, then switched back and pressed the program button to ensure it would still brew the main pot at 7am. Worked like a charm!! Before I would have had to brew the entire 6 cups that were ready, toss out most of it and setup my morning brew all over again.
So far, very happy with the product. I will adjust review / rating as required, but so far 5 stars.
Update : 12/29/2012 - 1 Year later
It has been a year and the machine is holding up well. No leaks, no cracks, not even surface wear. If I were to notice one thing from day 1 to day 370 is the single cup brewer puts out about 4 drips after it shuts off where as it didn't do that 6 months ago. Again, that is the ONLY thing I notice after a year of use.
We brew about 1 pot in the main craft in the morning, and at least 3 cups on the side using the permanent filter every day. If it were to break today for any reason I would say it was worth the price and would purchase again.
This specific coffee maker is fabulous for a variety of reasons. First, the carafe is pretty standard. It makes an entire pot of coffee and it stays HOT for 2 hours. It has an auto shut off after 2 hours (which is awesome if you forget to turn it off before leaving the house). If you want the coffee to stay hot longer than 2 hours, just turn it back on after the auto shut off. Just the simple press of a button!
This also has a timer, so you can set it to start making coffee at a specific time every morning. Just load the filter, water and grounds the night before. Set the timer and turn it on. That's it! You'll have delicious hot coffee waiting for you at your chosen time.
And by far my favorite feature - the single serve side!!!! When my husband leaves early for work and I'm solo with the kiddos, this is the perfect thing for me. I don't have to make 4+ cups of coffee and throw half of it out. I can make any amount of coffee I want up to 2 cups! It's ridiculously easy to brew just 1 mug of coffee. Or, if you want a little more, I can fill my Yeti on the single serve side. It's soooo easy. I've had the same filter for almost 2 years and haven't needed to replace it. I just throw it in the dishwasher every few times I use it and it's still working really well.
If you're debating about this coffee maker, I suggest you go for it.. I've never had a single problem with it. It's been used by multiple house guests, it sometimes doesn't get cleaned well, and it always makes great coffee. And you can't beat the price!!!
When I first got the brewer I was glad to see the pod setup. I could use pods or I could also make single cups with the two pod holder. The bottom of the holder has a 1 cup size strainer that can be used for grounds if you happen to be out of pods and a top section to put a second pod in to make the coffee even stronger if you like your coffee stronger.
I have several bags of coffee beans that I grind prior to making coffee so I was really excited that I could grind that coffee and make single cups. I will admit I do like making my own pods as well.
Since I can use this coffee brewer to make 12 cups for guests I have the best of both worlds in one brewer. Great coffee and versatile as well. Since it is programmable it's wonderful to get up in the morning being greeted by a hot cup of coffee.
I would recommend this to friends and relatives as well.
