I have this coffee pot as my back up coffee pot and I keep it in its box in the garage. I really like this one but the pods for it are kind of limited, they have basic coffee flavors, and tea but unlike the keurig they don't make cappuccinos, lattes, or mochas for it. So it is fairly limited. Although they do make more different brand name coffees for the Hamilton Beach pods than the keurig coffee pod brands. The whole reason I got a keurig is so that I could have lattes and other drinks like that at home without having to go to a coffee shop. So I was quite disappointed when I discovered that this coffee maker doesn't really have anything like that which is why I actually ended up replacing this one with a different coffee pot. It is great as a back up coffee pot but it is difficult to find coffee pods that go with it, they only sell them at certain places but they are price efficient which is a plus. There is really no reason that makes this coffee pot a bad one, its just a personal choice that I prefer a different coffee pot versus this one. although this one does brew fairly strong coffee which is awesome. This coffee pot brews a strong cup of coffee equal to a coffee pot filled to the make of coffee grounds or you can make a weaker cup it completely depends on personal preference. Another feature that I like is that you can use two coffee pods or even three if you put them in right to make an unbelievable strong cup of coffee which I like to call the wake up cup. I like this brewer but it just doesn't have as many options as I would like it to have but again that is just my personal preference, and I would definitely recommend this brewer to anyone who likes quick made personal cups of coffee but doesn't like all those specialty drinks like I do.

We purchased our Hamilton Beach Personal Cup Single-Cup Pod Brewer a couple of months ago after our Keurig broke. We couldn't decide on what our next coffee maker should be since our last one died unexpectedly. The Hamilton Beach was our cheap band aid that we purchased until we could figure out what we wanted.

Yes, the Hamilton Beach makes a single cup of coffee whenever you have a craving. Half of the quality has to do with the coffee one puts into the machine. There are not that many different brewing options or settings on this basic model Hamilton Beach. With that being said, since it is such a small machine with basically no parts, clean up is a breeze. I have not had any issues with leakage or spillage during the past couple months of continuous everyday household use.

The Hamilton Beach Personal Cup Single-Cup Pod Brewer is perfect for someone going off to college or somewhere else where space is an issue and a coffee maker is a necessity. I would have loved to have one of these in the dorms when I was that age. All you need is a plug and access to water (even a bottle of water will work).

I use a few coffee machines and this one I like the less. The coffee machines easy to use but the coffee taste nasty after going through. Coffee seem to go out my cup while brewing.

Comments about Hamilton Beach Personal Cup Single-Cup Pod Brewer:

When I got this product I thought it would be perfect for single cups of coffee, the fisr couple times I used it, it worked wonderful. It brewed quickly, and it was really easy to use. About a month after buying it, something happened to it that it blew right through the top of it. The top now needs tape or something on top of it to hold it down to make coffee. There was no warning, hot water n steam went everywhere, I even got burnt. I will never buy this product again or will I ever recommend this product.

    We use it every day and never have had a issue. We can buy any of single use coffee's from the stores or online and it works perfectly with them. It's real easy to clean and storing it is easy also. It's small and slender it fits anywhere.

    I received the Hamilton Beach coffee maker as a gift. I had never owned a pod coffee pot before, I loved using the pods so easy, no measuring or filters needed. The coffee maker works great except the coffee just doesn't get very hot, lukewarm as best so if you like your coffee really hot this is not the coffee maker for you

          I was gift this in a group when done on Facebook for secret sisters. I was literally in tears. I wanted a single cup maker for the evenings since I love a cup or two in the evening. I was so tickled that it had the place to put ground coffee since the pods can be so expensive. Instantly I was hooked. It kept the coffee hot even when I forgot and it was done before I finished the dishes. Totally win a less than the competitors.

          First of all, I would like to thank you very much for this wonderful and unique product in the quality of the product produced, the great coffee taste and the hardness of the machine, but I have some comments that I want you to review and improve in the coming machines, For the machine as well as control buttons if you change it is more attractive nature, but with regard to the base of the machine is beautiful
          But on the whole, this machine is beautiful and wonderful meaning of the word
          As for the price, it is very seductive and competitive also for the other models offered in the markets and this is due to the hardness of the product and its time because I used many models but did not last such a masterpiece

          Good little coffee pot. Received as a gift. am the only one in the home that drinks coffee, so it works for me. I find with a large pot I waste coffee. Pros-It doesn't take up much room on the counter. You get it set up and push a button. That's it. It's ideal for a single cup if coffee. Cons- Though it's makes a single cup, I find it is a small cup. I wish it held just a little bit more water. It takes a minute or so to brew. It is kinda loud at the end of the brew cycle. I wish it had a hotplate, and I wish it detected whether or not a cup was there. I forgot to put one in, and went to finish getting ready for work. Coffee everywhere! But overall it's a decent, basic coffee maker.
