I am happy with my purchase, although I wish that I had known I could only use the coffee pods. No big deal, as I can purchase an insert to be able to use my own select brand of coffee. It works well, and brews quickly. Tends to splash a little if I use one of my smaller coffee cups, but easy clean up. Overall, I would recommend for the price!

Overall, I am very pleased with this coffee maker. The convenience is great, and, I love that I can brew right in my to-go cup if I want to take my coffee with me. However, there are a few things that consumers need to be aware of, that are not always stated in black and white!

First, if you use the standard Senseo pods, you will get a good cup of coffee. I suggest using 2 pods for a full sized cup (12-14 oz) of coffee, in whatever roast you prefer (light, medium, or dark). When shopping around for other brands of coffee, please be aware that the pods come in different sizes, which do not all work properly with this coffee maker (even if the pods fit correctly in the basket!)

The Senseo pod is around 7-8 grams in size, and that is the size you need to look for in other brands, to ensure that they will work correctly. I believe the Melitta brand pods are also 7-8 grams. Baronet makes some very good roasts (my personal favorite brand), but, they also have 3 different pod sizes available. The Baronet brand coffee pods you need for this brewer come in a bag (like the Senseo pods), usually 18 count, and weigh a total of 140 grams per bag (7.78 grams per pod). These work beautifully in this coffee maker.

The Baronet brand 10 gram pods and 12 gram pods do not work properly in this coffee maker. Although they will fit into the brew holder, they do not have the proper filter material and coffee grind to brew a good cup of coffee in this machine. (For example, 2 of the 10 gram pods produces a very weak and weird tasting cup of coffee, no matter what the roast. You would think the larger pod size would produce a stronger cup of coffee than the 7-8 gram pods, but, unfortunately it does not work that way.

We were at Big Lots yesterday and I saw a Hamilton Beach personal coffee maker that uses the Senseo pods for only $19. Went back today during lunch and picked one up to have here at work. It came with 18 coffee pods, so I don't have to buy anything for a while, but I do plan to get the reusable pod thing so I can use normal coffee grounds. So far, so good. My only complaint is pouring water in the reservoir - you pour it in each time you want to make a cup, which is fine, but logically, you use your coffee cup to pour the water in with, and it doesn't pour so well that way. It took a couple of minutes longer to brew a cup than our Keurig machine at home does (the Keurigs are pretty fast) because it's using a standard drip method vs. the Keurig's pressurized method, but it's still a quick cup of coffee. Using a full cup of water + 1 pod produced a relatively weak cup of coffee, but that's OK by me. You can also place a second pod in the reservoir for a stronger cup, or if you're brewing a larger cup. It can brew up to 14oz. Not bad for $19 I suppose.

It is hard to get a good cup of decaf coffee. The process of removing caffeine removes flavor, my opinion.

I grind my own coffee and put it in a paper filter, about 3 Tbsp. for a 16oz cup. That works pretty well and does not take long. I found the best filters are some

I found in Walmart next to the coffee in the grocery section. It says it is made for 1 to 4 cup brewers and costs about a buck for a pack of 200. The filters are small diameter and thin paper. Perfect.

I dump the coffee from my grinder into the filter then pull 4 sides together and lightly twist together. The end product is shaped like a ball. I put that in the bottom of the filter holder. Takes about a minute to brew. Quick and easy.

Sent this off with our son to college. He loves it and it's super easy for him with the pods (it comes with a pack and I get the Melitta ones at walmart...work great). Be aware that the coffee-to-go-cup that is pictured, does NOT come with it. I purchased for him the coffee mug I have used for YEARS....and LOVE-LOVE-LOVE! It does not leak even if you turn it upside down and shake it (if you have the lid turned all the way down) and it keeps the coffee hot, has a handle, and even a clip to hook it to his backpack. It fits perfectly with this coffee maker. It's a little over $20, but it is so totally worth it. I have had mine for many years and it still works the same. Anyway, bought them both here on amazon.

Hope this helps!

the water comes out to fast so the coffee tastes very weak, no brewing time with this machine. I have to use multiple pods
so not saving any money on coffee. if the water would come out slower this would be a great machine.

The Hamilton Beach Personal Cup Stay or Go POD Brewer is tall enough to fit a 16.9 oz. (500 ml) travel mug or a smaller size 8.45 oz. (250 ml) regular coffee cup. When you use a smaller cup simply pull out the base stand and flip it over which adjusts the base stand height to exactly fit a regular size cup. The maximum capacity of the water reservoir is 16 ounces. The brewer comes with an 18 pack of Senseo Medium Roast Coffee Pods. I noticed that the date on the package was almost a year old so I called Amazon for a price adjustment. They immediately refunded $7.90 to my credit card. For my very FIRST use of the brewer, based on the advice of Hamilton Beach, I ran a WATER ONLY brew cycle to flush out the brewer from the manufacturing process. Then I used two pods for my next brew cycle to see how strong the coffee would be. For a regular size cup the total brew time was 3 minutes 10 seconds. For a 16 oz. travel mug, the brew time is doubled. The coffee was very strong and had a very pleasant after taste. For my second 8 oz. cup I chose to use a single coffee pod to see if the coffee would be strong enough for my taste test. It was not quite as strong as the two pod brew, but it was still dark and strong enough and had the very same pleasant aftertaste. So now I'm brewing all my 8 ounce cups with just one pod which, of course, saves money since Senseo Coffee Pods are relatively expensive. Some reviewers complain that the coffee is not strong enough even when using two pods. Something is wrong with those reviewers taste buds. This brewer makes PERFECTLY strong and dark coffee even when using just one pod for an 8 ounce cup. If you use the taller travel size mug with 16 ounces of water, then it is recommended to use two pods.Read more ›
