This is a simple, quick coffee machine for one cup/mug. I’ve used mine everyday for over a year and enjoyed every drink it’s made. It’s quick to set up and within 2 mins makes a mug of 500ml coffee. The thermal mug that’s supplied only holds 400-450ml safely, so I use my own mug. I’ve tried this machine with pre-ground coffee, but prefer to grind my own a little coarser than you can buy in the shops. You can even set it up the night before and leave it to make you a fresh coffee first thing, as it’s got a built in delayed start timer. Please note, this machine does not take coffee pods and it doesn’t have a milk option.
