I found this in the Target clearance section and wasn't expecting much because it is so small, but I brought this to college anyway because living in a dorm, you need all the space you can get. I was so pleased to find out that this thing is so useful and really packs a punch as far as something so simple could go. I really only need 1 cup of coffee at a time, so it's perfect. I can also take the coffee filter out and make tea! I hope it lasts me for awhile, if not, I will probably repurchase anyway.
