Made a hit at home. Easy to use and makes a good cup of coffee. The K cups are a little expensive when you finally realize you are paying about $60 for a pound of coffee. We found the optional coffee device for using your own ground coffee did not work well at all and no matter what we did with the ground from course to fine the coffee turned out weak. Would not recommend using this and to stick to the K cups.update 5 years later. this item was purchased in Novembe..
