MAKING COFFEE: Some people like their coffee weak, some like it strong, I have found through personal experience that two scoops of coffee from the mini scoop, will fill the filters up to half way, and I feel that is the perfect amount for me, not too weak, not too strong. The filter bays basically slide outward from the back of the coffee maker, each filter has its own handle so you can pull it out.
Put two whole scoops of coffee into the filters, and replace them back into the machine, and slide the filter bays back into place. Fill the reservoir to the 2-cup level if you are making two cups, or to the 1-cup level if your making one cup. Remember that this coffee maker has the ability to make individual cups of coffee, so if making only one cup, only put coffee in the left side filter basket.
Using the switch on the top, I am able to select weather I want one cup of coffee or two cups of coffee. But even more importantly, if somebody drinks decaf and I drink caffanated, You can make them in their own separate filter baskets, without any unwanted contamination! Even cooler, I can make coffee in the left travel mug, and I can make hot coco or tea in the right travel mug!
REVIEWER ARGUMENTS: I bought this coffee maker on Amazon, so I have been privileged to read all the reviewer arguments. Let me discuss each one...
(The first reviewer stated that the cups were nice but the it splattered all over the place, regardless of how you positioned the cup.)
Sorry, but I had no problem with the coffee maker brewing my coffee into the travel mugs, there is only one way to position the cup, the way it was intended, and there was no liquid all over the place.
(The second reviewer stated that the coffee was never hot, that it was warm at best and didn't stay that way for very long.)
Sorry, but I felt the coffee maker got my coffee nice and hot, so hot infact that it got the outside of the travel mugs more then warm. The coffee was hot, and it stayed that way with the top off for a whole freaking hour! Imagine what the top on would have done? DOUBLE IT!!! Lol
(The third reviewer stated that the product was misleading, that it did not contain two separate brewers in one. He states that he could not do tea in one and coffee in the other. And that the switch did not allow for 1-cup brewing.)
Sorry, but once again, you have to actually own the product before you badmouth it. He obviously didn't know what he was talking about, as the coffee maker does have two separate brewers, and there is a switch to select 1-cup or 2-cup brewing.
(A couple reviewers said that the label on the cup switch was also mislabeled.)
Sorry, but the switch is labeled just fine. When I slide the switch to the 2-cup mark, it makes 2-cups. When I slide it to the 1-cup mark, it makes 1-cup. This is not rocket science, but maybe some people should read the manual that comes with the coffee maker?
CONCLUSION: Like all coffee makers, this one is made out of plastic, but it is a very shinny plastic. Black in color with a crème colored reservoir tank window. I feel that this coffee maker is sleek in design, looks nice, and who doesn't love the travel mugs! When a coffee maker can brew your coffee in 5-minutes or less, that's when you say YES MAM! Do I like this coffee maker, why yes I do, and I give it a 5 out of 5!
ADDITIONAL NOTE: It is now 10 months that I've had this coffee maker. I would not recommend purchasing it. Within a few months the slide tabs on the cup lids broke. As mentioned above, it does not heat the coffee hot enough.
