Works fast and produces great coffee. I am so glad I purchased this one. Was a little worried that it would be too small or a pain to refill all the time but actually is perfect. Its great and anyone who gets it will love it.
This machine truly caters to all of our needs. My daughter loves to use k-cups, I like using freshly ground coffee, and we both drink a lot of hot teas. Very hot, you can adjust the strength of the brew, and the station is very easy to keep clean, as opposed to using the French press, etc. Perfect for us.
We are 90% happy with our MyCafe. The quality of materials is very high and much more of it is metal than I'd gathered from reading the product description and other reviews. Essentially everything you see in the photo that's stainless steel in color is stainless steel, even the removable K-Cup holder. The K-Cup holder is our first dislike: the machine comes with 4 of them which I must have missed in the product description. A different one is required for K-Cups, tea bags, ground coffee and hot water. Not only a nuisance but also a storage problem when you factor in the space taken up by the machine and all the K-Cups you'll end up with.
The machine maintains a reservoir of water which it keeps hot enough for a drink for 6 hours or so after which it reduces temperature slightly and then again some hours later meaning that the more frequently you use it the quicker it is to brew from virtually instant to 30 seconds. This is never a nuisance even if returning the next day because the water heater is triggered when you remove the K-Cup holder so while you're loading that the water's heating up.
There is no ability to make iced drinks with this machine.
In addition to the multiple brewer devices we have 3 other issues: firstly it spits and drips water everywhere. Spitting occurs during brewing so you have to wipe everything down every time you make a drink and then when you remove the K-Cup holder that drips everywhere from the machine to the trashcan so that needs to be cleaned up. Secondly it's flaked out on us twice in the 3 weeks we've owned it. No error lights, it just makes a brewing noise (pumps etc.) but nothing happens. Unplug for 30 minutes and it will work again. I've yet to contact Bunn about this because not 100% reproducible but will do so because it is very annoying and obviously a glitch somewhere. The third is that you have to fill a cold water reservoir before it will brew. It is the level in this reservoir that determines how much water from the hot water reservoir goes into your mug. And therein lies the problem - we have many different size mugs so we have to remember roughly how much each contains. The reason being that when the reservoir empties on its own accord the machine pushes air through the K-Cup to remove as much water as possible to make it less drippy when you remove it. If you have to interrupt the brew cycle because the mug's going to overflow then this purge doesn't occur and it's significantly more drippy than usual.
This could be a very good machine if Bunn could iron out the spitting & dripping and inactive operation fault.
My Cafe is well made with quality materials. I have only had the My Cafe for one month, but I've already fallen in love. It's easy to use, easy to clean and makes a great cup of coffee. I haven't tried making tea as I am not sure it steeps black tea as long as required, but the water is hot enough for brewing.. I've owned two other expensive single cup brewers and the My Cafe, is by far the best. Each cup of coffee can be made to you personal taste. I use higher end coffee and prefer a strong bold taste. The My Cafe makes a better cup than my French Press. I highly recommend the My Cafe over any other single brew system.
Does this coffee maker have a device to hook up to the water line directly? Or is there a plastic that you pull out to add the water?firemanpat1 on Sep 15, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question

HI jewelml, the "AT other retailer" price represents an actual price in the marketplace of an identical product which has been verified within the last 90 days. We have included the shipping cost in that price with the shipping to a central US zip code. I hope this helps, thanks for shopping with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Apr 17, 2014
