Works great & is just right for one person (2 cups of coffee). The carafe does drip a bit if you don't pour exactly right though. Loved the red color & it takes up minimal space!
The carafe part broke after only two months of use. Did not last long at all.
Similar to those in use by many hotels, it is easy to use. It avoids the problems and costs of the single-serve machines. Even though the water capacity is 4-cups, the ground coffee basket uses standard-size paper filters. Very happy with this compact coffee maker!
