Update: This product was discontinued at the end of 2012, but is still available from select retailers until ramaining inventory is sold.

While Mr. Coffee's brand name is on the exterior of this pod coffee maker, its inner workings are made by best-selling pod maker Keurig. The machine also uses Keurig's proprietary coffee pods (called K-cups) for brewing 8-ounce coffee, espresso, tea and hot chocolate drinks; a variety pack is included in the box. The unit has a removable drip tray to make cleaning easier. An auto shut-off activates 90 seconds after a drink is brewed, an energy-saving feature.

What People Are Saying:

The Mr. Coffee Single Serve Coffee Maker earned a top rating from Consumer Reports, but did not receive a "recommended" or "best buy" ranking. Consumer Reports gave the unit an excellent rating on size consistency; convenience, first-cup speed and temperature consistency were rated very good. The model is a top-seller on Amazon and customer reviews were overwhelmingly positive, with an overwhelming number of five-star reviews (out of five). Most customers said the model worked at least as well as most Keurig-made machines and consistently brewed tasty cups of Joe. The most common complaint was that the coffee was not hot enough.
