Rated 2 out of 5 by Bette Great coffee but don't like how it leaks
Definite shortcoming is that I like to use Folger's coffee pods and the only pods that fit this machine are the Java pods, which to date I've only been able to purchase online and I find their coffee to be a little bitter for my taste. If using the larger pods it always leaks and as a result I never get a full cup of coffee, even when I select the larger cup. However, the concept is great particularly for a single person who doesn't want to brew a whole pot of coffee. It's quick and easy, just too much work to clean up the mess when it leaks.

This is a wonderful coffee maker- I like very hot coffee and I have never been disappointed with tepid coffee from this machine- (unlike drip makers). It is quick, easy, simple to use and easy to clean. I'd definitely recommend this one!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mordecai A Good Choice among pod machines
A pod brewer *FORCES* hot water through the coffee and the seal around the top must be made or leakage will occur. Much like an expresso machine this is different from your standard drip machine. I have not had any leakage during use and I carefully press different maker's "pods" into the center with great results as long as the seal above the pod is able to make continuous contact with the full metal top of the pod holder. I'm very satisfied and if you only make one cup or live alone than give this a try

Rated 2 out of 5 by StormRider68 Slightly Disappointed
Being that I truly respect the Melita brand and enjoy their coffee, I was notably disappointed in the operation of this machine. Most problematic is that it only accepts the Melita Java Pods...no other brand that I tried would fit in the machine. Second, it was extremely messy to operate. The manual stated some dripping might occur between cycles, but mine leaked a steady stream of water everywhere. I'm sticking with my older pod brewer...it works just as well, isn't nearly as messy, and accepts pods of all brands.
