I got this, in the black color, for a Christmas gift from my husband. I had thought that he might have gotten me the Senseo, because I had tried that before, but he said that he saw this one and thought that I would like it better, since it does a little more than the Senseo. I tried it out and boy, he was right! This little machine makes a great cup of coffee, among other drinks. It can also make latte's, cappicino's, hot or cold, a cold peach tea, hot chocolate, etc. The coffee they offer is really a bold flavor and I enjoy a cup every morning. The machine itself is very easy to use. You just fill up the tank with fresh cold water, which holds about 2-2 1/2 cups, then add a capsule of your choice, and that's it! So simple. I love the froth it leaves on the top of the coffee. It is kind of loud while it is making a cup but it's not so bad that it's not worth buying. The capsules of coffee are a little on the high side, but again, if you only drink about 1-2 cups per day, it's not that bad. I have really enjoyed my Christmas gift and if you are on the fence about buying one, I say go for it! You will not be disappointed!!
