The Flavia Fusion Coffee Maker, Espresso Machine and Teapot is great because it's so easy to use; you can literally set up the coffeemaker with one hand while texting someone in the other. My family uses this everyday in addition to a Keurig machine and both perform similarly. The only reason I would prefer the Keurig over the Flavia is because the Flavia Fusion Coffee Maker, Espresso Machine and Teapot really offers a great selection of tea and coffee but without the availability of K-cups. Sadly, they are only offered on the Flavia website whereas you can buy K-cups almost anywhere now. Other than that, this coffeemaker is great for making both tea and coffee. Every time I use it, the flavors of both drinks stay pure to their own tastes and don't taste like I had just used the Flavia to make tea or coffee before. I would recommend this if you don't mind ordering the drink packages every time.
