I'm thinking of getting one so I'm looking to see what you like/don't like.
xrichx saidWe have them at work. They're horrible. If you just want a quick caffeine fix, they're not bad. They're very convenient and quick. But if you're a coffee lover, then you'll be disappointed by the flavor. Or lack of, actually.

NC3athlete saidEven though the concept is nice and convenient, don't forget that it creates a lot of waste--all of those little plastic pods that are not recyclable in most (or many) places. Not very environmentally conscious, all that packaging.
beneful1 saidI'm sitting on the fence about one right now because there are 3 different types of these pod machines on the market right now.. The Keurig style, the Braun Tassimo and the Nespresso and the pods are not interchangeable between them. The Braun Tassimo pods look to be a little less expensive.I suggest the Tassimo, if you want variety. They've got coffee pods from all the major coffee brands. Plus, you can make latte and tea drinks. Only drawback is that the pods aren't widely available. Target and most major supermarkets carry a few varieties. But your best bet is to buy the pods directly from the manufacturer or from Amazon.com, if you want a good selection.
About 10 years ago we bought a Melitta pod style coffee maker and thought it was great, they were selling them everywhere and then after about 3 years you couldn't find refill pods anywhere so you're stuck with a perfectly good machine that is useless.
