Eco-Friendly - Living on planet Earth is the best, right? Capresso shows her a little love by including a removable permanent filter, saving you money and Mother Nature a little less waste from disposable filters.
Versatility - Brew your favorite pre-ground blend or try a soft coffee pod. We recommend sticking with the pre-ground option, as this worked best during SCG testing.
Dishwashing is Divine - Clean-up is easy with this personal coffee maker! The stainless steel travel mug, coffee filter and the removable filter basket are all dishwasher safe.
Hot Top! - While this personal coffee maker brews amazingly hot coffee (we clocked it in at 190°F!), it also heats the top of the machine in the process. To avoid those "ouch!" moments, keep those delicate digits clear of the top lid during and right after brewing.
Condensation - This machine is clearly working hard to brew your coffee! As proof, you may notice a little "sweat" on the front of the machine during the brew process. Nothing a single paper towel can't handle!

Tips and Tricks
Heat water for tea or cocoa by completing the brew cycle sans coffee.
For the best overall flavor, 3 - 5 tablespoons of ground coffee is recommended, but can be adjusted to taste. Using more than 6 tablespoons is not recommended as the filter may overflow.
Best Answer:I wanted to add to my previous reply that I have now found a paper filter that works with this coffeemaker. It is the Melitta #2. You have to wet the filter basket to help it to stick to the sides, then press the paper filter into the basket, aiming to get it centered. Then smush the sides of the filter against the basket. This sounds harder than it is. There is a little overlap on one side, sort of a lip, which I cut off at first, but then found out it doesn't interfere with the coffee making so now I leave it. The filter won't reach up to the top of the filter basket on all sides, but that doesn't interfere with anything either. It will be sufficient to contain your coffee grounds. The paper may cut down a bit on the coffee sediment, but I didn't think the flavor changed, and I much prefer using a filter to make less of a mess. Filters are biodegradeable and you can even mulch them in your compost pile if you want. I hope this solution works for others. I am still very happy with this coffeemaker.
I haven't found s paper filter to fit, but I'm sure it would work. I, too, would like to use one. The coffee maker has a filter holder and a mesh filter. They both have a "cupcake" shape. The filter holder measures about 2 1/2" diameter at the bottom, slightly less than 3" at the top, and is about 2 5/8" high. The filter (which the paper filter ought to be similar to in size, I think) is 2 1/2" diameter at the bottom, 2 3/4" diameter at the top, and 2 3/8" high. I'm thinking a paper filter could be a bit bigger than that, and still fit in the holder. I hope you can find one that would fit. It's possible that one designed for the Keurig system might work, as I believe they use a cupcake shape, too. This is the one thing that I think would improve the coffee maker very much!

happy with my purchaseReview by Grinch
This makes a nice cup of coffee and I appreciate that it doesn't use k-cups. The temperature of the coffee is perfect for me... it's hot but not so hot that I have to wait a long time to take a sip. (Posted on 3/28/2015)
Makes a good cup of coffeeReview by PamR
i've been trying this out for few weeks now, and am happy with the quality of the brew. Compared with my old Black & Decker, I have noticed the following: this brew has more body, similar to when I used to make cafe filtre with a French device. It also has a smoother taste. It's missing the "brightness" or more acidy quality that was more apparent in my old brew. But I'm not a fan of this quality, so that isn't a negative for me. It's messier to clean up compared to my B&D, because that maker used paper filters. I realize this is supposed to be better for the environment, however these thin paper sleeves decompose rapidly and you can even mulch them, so I doubt this is a big thing. I would be happier with a paper filter option. Some people have complained that the coffee comes out lukewarm. I found it's possible to make it hotter in the cup if you heat the cup with hot water before making the coffee. (If you use cold water to make the brew and use the metal cup to pour it in the maker, you have to stop at this point and heat the cup, which takes more time). Having said all that, the temperature in the cup works for me, as I don't like coffee to be steaming hot anyway. So to sum up, good coffee, a little more fuss and a little more mess than my B&D. The pros outweigh the cons, IMO. (Posted on 10/16/2014)
