This is a great coffee machine. It is simple to use and you can make coffee with just a single touch of a button. There are a variety of coffee types to use ranging from regular brewed coffee to even lattes ans cappuccinos. Lattes and cappuccinos offer an extra pod of milk. The coffee pods that are inserted work through a bar code that the machine scans when the pod is inserted and that's how the machine knows what type of coffee it shall make for you. It is very easy to clean as it does not have multiple attachments and parts except for the water tank.
