This is my current life-bringer in my household and I have to admit, I am kind of in love with it. We used to have a Keurig and don't get me wrong, I LOVED my keurig, but with this, I grind my coffee fresh everyday, and it is amazing. That is one thing that I didn't love about the kpods. They are great, but is there really anything as good as a fresh ground, dark roast cup of coffee? I think not. The ease with this machine is super nice too. It is easy to clean, it brews quickly, and it is still the convience of a single cup brewer. It looks really stylish sitting on the counter too. The design of this is fantastic. I also love the added bonus of the frother, I kind of wish it warmed the milk as it frothed but it really isn't too much of a bother to go and heat some milk beforehand. I used to work at a coffee bar so I am a fan of latte's and mocha's and you need a good froth to achieve these the right way. I got this for a good deal at Kohls and I honestly love it. I literally have no complaints. This thing makes me function on a daily basis, there isn't a whole lot of things that you can credit with helping you think and put sentences together on the regular.
