I really wanted to like the Melitta Single Serve. I was excited to find one at a great price at a big box store. From the beginning, there were issues. I noticed that I seemed to have to refill the water tank well before it seemed I should. Usually just getting a couple of cups of coffee out of one tank. I also often had to press the brew cup button several times for it to work. The biggest issue was leaking. The spout leaked a lot. I had to keep another cup under it after brewing because it leaked so much. The spout height also caused an issue for bigger mugs. If I wanted to use a travel mug I had to brew the coffee into a cup and pour it into the mug. I know it's not a big deal, but it was a hassle. I would not recommend this product. My father in law got the same model and has had similar issues, but he appears to have more patience than me. I have packed mine away and moved on to a different single cup brewer.
