Very simple to use, makes nice tasting coffee in super quick time. I love this as it's extremely easy to use, pour boiled water over one scoop of ground coffee within the unit placed above cup, stir for about 20 seconds and then put on top section and press down. Very easy to clean too, unscrew bottom piece and remove paper filter then hold over bin and press, most of the grounds come straight out, then a quick rinse and done! I also rinse the filters and re-use them about 6 times, although they are not expensive to buy, but why waste them? I have used ready ground coffee from the supermarket as well as my own fresh ground beans and both are good. I used organic Arabica and got a really nice flavour. I add about a third of hot milk to the cup of coffee after pressing (which I warm in the microwave so no pans to clean!) and it makes a really nice latte or add frothed hot milk (I use the Aerolatte milk frother) to make a great cappuccino with a lovely frothy head. It makes one decent size mug full of cappuccino or two small size cups. Recommended as it's so tasty, easy and quick, great for when you've got no time to fuss, and much nicer than coffee from a jar. Really pleased with it and glad I didn't waste money on an expensive coffee machine when this is just as good, and you can just shove it in a drawer too so it doesn't take up any space either. Also great for taking on holidays too as it's so small.
