    • Perfect Single-Cup, Versatile Brewer

      The Bunn MyCafe MCU is by far the best single-cup brewer on the market, in my opinion. My parents have a ------, and this makes a far superior tasting, piping-hot cup of coffee or tea, every time. The Pulse function is the best feature--it makes the coffee bold and strong. The MyCafe can brew K-Cups, Pods, Tea, your own coffee grounds, or simply hot water for cocoa, cider, oatmeal, etc. It can accommodate tall to-go cups if you remove the drip tray. You control how strong the coffee is by the ratio of grounds to water, and whether you use the pulse function or not. We grind our own beans and use the pulse function, and it saves us a lot of money over our previous slow-drip coffee maker in wasted ground coffee. Our daughters love hot chocolate from the machine--piping hot 200 degree water is the key. The ------- machines don't get hot enough, and they don't have the pulse function, so those machines simply force a stream of hot water right through the center of the K-Cup or grounds, without allowing the water to steep and spread around. If you're looking for a single-serve coffee maker, you won't go wrong with the Bunn MyCafe MCU.

    • Easy to use, versatile, and a tasty cup of joe
      Verified Purchase

      I spent several months reading product reviews and considering different single-cup brewers before selecting the Bunn MyCafe MCU. I am exceptionally pleased with it. Firstly, the price is quite affordable compared with other single-cup brewers. Secondly, it has a small counterspace footprint and compact design. This is in part becasue it does not have a large water tank - you do have to add water with each use. This is quite ok with me, because water is not getting stale. Adding water with each use also means I get to control the exact volume I want for each cup - from 8 to 14 oz. The interchangeable brew heads do require a little bit of extra storage space. The industrial style may not be for everyone, but I found its minimalist stainless design adapted suprisingly well in my transitional-style kitchen. Thirdly - and most importantly! - this brewer makes a great cup of coffee. And cocoa. And tea. I appreaciate its versatility - you can use K-cups, pods, tea bags, or loose coffee. I have used <ahem> other machines at friends' homes and office lobbies, and this Bunn machine produces a much better tasting cup. The pulse option (one of only two buttons on the minimalist machine) is also useful, especially for ground coffee or tea bags, for getting a noticeably stronger flavor that I found quite satisfying. This machine also makes hot water, which I use to make oatmeal and hot honey. Finally, cleaup is super easy. The fresh grounds drawer is simple to dump and rinse after each use. K-cups are even easier. The drip tray and all four of the machine's drawers are top-rack dishwasher-safe. Bottom Line: It's the perfect brewer for regular coffee drinkers, especially ones who might be curious about the convenience of K-Cups but reluctant to abandon fresh grounds. The My Cafe gives you both, and then some.

    • Versatile, great machine
      Verified Purchase

      I just bought this brewer to replace my single cup coffee machine that began to malfunction. I read many reviews on this product from different websites, and they were all positive, so I decided to purchase it. I have only had it for a couple of days, and I am still trying to get used to it. There is a slight learning curve on how to use it. It is important to read the instructions before using it, and I learned the hard way that if the drawer is not properly connected and locked, then it will not brew. Also, when it was first set up, I had to run water through it for several brew cycles. I did find some excellent video's on the Bunn website which shows how to set it up for the initial use, how to use the 4 different drawers that come with it, and how to clean it. I really like the different options that it can be used for, such as tea bags, K-cups or pods, coffee grounds or just hot water. A nice feature is that a coffee filter is not needed since the drawer used for coffee grounds has a screen to prevent the grounds from going into the cup. I also like that if I want a stronger cup of coffee, I can use the Pulse feature. This is a great brewer if you only need one cup instead of a entire pot of coffee, and it will brew 4 oz to 14 oz at a time. One thing to note, is that it does not have an on/off switch, so when it is not in use, it needs to be unplugged. Bunn recommends that Distilled or Purified water not be used, and only use cold water. Overall, I am very satisfied with this purchase and I highly recommend it.

    • Generally very good but had some niggles
      Verified Purchase

      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.

    • The Best
      Verified Purchase

      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.

      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 use single serve pods for making tea and coffee as well as hot chocolate. The various size containers are perfect if you use kcups as well as single pods. The only hassle is having to fill the cup with water for each brew, but you get a very hot beverage. Well worth the price

      I’ve been making drip coffee but was looking for a one cup machine so my teenage daughter can easily make her own. This is cute, compact and actually allows you to brew with k cups, grounds or bags. It has a few different drawers you can switch out. It’s super fast and allows you to choose the exact amount of water per cup. I’m thrilled!!

      I was excited to get this because of the included attachments that let you use all kinds of coffee, from grounds to pods to k-cups. I was disappointed by the reservoir size, however. You can only add 14 ounces at a time, so you have to refill it often. You also can't control the amount of hot water per cup, so if you like your coffee stronger or weaker than the factory settings, you're out of luck.

    Questions & Answers

    • Q:

      "How much water does the reservoir hold?"

      • A:

        This coffee maker can hold up to 14 ounces of water. I usually brew a 7 ounce cup for myself, as I use a k cup instant cappuccino, and that is the perfect size for it to taste great and not too watery.

    • Q:

      "I purchased this unit from you in October, 2014. It is now leaking water from the top of the unit during the cycle to make a cup of tea or coffee. The area it is leaking from is on the top of the machine both toward the back and also in the front where it appears to be tightly sealed. I've cut back from making a 14 oz cup to an 8 oz cup and it still leaks after the brewing is about half over. What is the problem?"

      • A:

        Hello phoebe4, you will be contacted by Customer Care. Have a great day.

      • A:

        My My Cafe MCU was doing the same thing, and I remember reading that you need to maintain the unit. If you unscrew the black plastic piece under where the water is dispensed and clean the little holes in there, your leaks will stop. There are several routine maintenance things that need to be done to keep this machine working perfectly. Bunn has posted easy-to-follow YouTube videos on how to perform each of them.
