OK, best summary is to say that our coffee consumption has gone through the roof since we got this machine for Christmas. Yes, it's incredibly easy to use but the real reason is that the coffee is always great, better even than available at the local CBTL because, using the same coffee blends, each cup is individually brewed from an air-tight capsule.

Summary of tech stuff: this is a 15 bar machine for espresso, and 3.5 bars for coffee (and other drinks). Large water tank. Excellent brewing with perfect crema. Espresso and coffee are all brewed superbly -- this from a very fussy coffee drinker.

Faults: the handle is a bit flimsy feeling and you will likely think you're breaking the machine the first time you pull it into place. We've taken to pulling with one hand on each side rather than one hand in the middle. In practice, it actually works fine, so . . . Operation is a bit noisy but then so are all machines of this type. Other fault is that the coffee is so good that we probably drink more than we ought to. First world problem.

We chose this machine over the Kaldi because can't tell the difference in the brewed product and the Americano costs less and is more versatile. Not a tough decision really.

The multiple cup size option is very nice. One can make all different size coffees by simply pushing the "right" button and adjusting the movable shelf to the appropriate level (or even taking it off for a tall coffee holder). The larger the cup, the weaker the coffee with one capsule. BUT if it's too weak for your taste, you can brew two capsules into the same large cup by using the smaller cup settings repetitively. We haven't found the "weak" coffee to be an issue, however.

You can actually custom fit the coffee to your cup by simply pressing the "start" button a second time when your cup is filled to the desired level to(temporarily)stop the pump. IMPORTANT: after you do this, you must either finish the cycle by pushing the button again with another cup replacing your cup or by turning off the machine.

If you just want a cup of hot water, make sure there is no used capsule in the machine and push the appropriate cup size button. Quicker and easier than heating a pot of water. For tea drinkers, this means you have the option of using tea bags and loose tea to your preference.

Finally, use filtered water (the stores do) to assure best quality and minimize scale build-up. (We have a whole-house water filter and then use a Britta system for our water). I suspect the problems some have described with reliability are a function of using hard water without a filter and not de-scaling as instructed. (In addition to running water as per instructions, we periodically use a cleaning product designed for one-cup systems.) We've brewed a LOT of coffee in a month and not a hint of trouble.

I bought the Americano after reading many reviews about many one cup coffee makers. I like that it gives me various choices of beverage brewing sizes. The coffees and teas are delicious and the aroma is so pleasant.

I don't like that the water does not get hot enough. It really doesn't get as hot as it should. Even though it's not a professional coffee maker and burn concern may be a legal factor, the water needs to get hotter because the beverage cools off rather quickly and then I have to zap it in the microwave to warm it up and that kind of takes the whole mood out of the gourmet coffee brewing experience.

The water container gets low quickly. I don't know if the water is evaporating when not in use but when I put in the capsule and pull down the lever and as the water comes out, the beeps will come on interupting the flow of the water indicating that I need to put more water in the container and it happens nearly every time I make a cup of coffee. The cups I make are about 8-10 oz at a time, and I make two cups of coffee, one after the other, per container.

I would still recommend it to a friend because compared to other coffee makers in this price range, it seems to be the best. Plus I'm a CBTL fan and love their coffee and tea.

Comments about The Coffee Bean CBTL Americano Single Serve Machine:

I used to have the "K" machine like everyone else and I hated it. So my wife and I switched to CBTL and we are so happy we did. The coffee tastes so much better and is hotter. Even when people come over our house and taste the CBTL coffee they tell us how much better it tastes than their machines and ask us where we got it. We're even considering changing from the "K" machine to the CBTL at work.

Comments about The Coffee Bean CBTL Americano Single Serve Machine:

It's a big investment and I hope it lives up to all the hype. My husband loves it! I love the aroma of the coffee and after my pregnancy, I can't wait to try our machine. I was hesitant about the price but it seems to run perfectly everytime. It's not a quiet as I had hoped for but the results are good. I hope it will last me for more than 5 years!

    Comments about The Coffee Bean CBTL Americano Single Serve Machine:

    My husband and I bought this coffee maker with gift cards to Bed, Bath and Beyond that we received as wedding gifts a year and a half ago. We have had NO problems with this machine. It is a little noisy, but honestly it doesn't bother me. My ears always perk up from the other room when I hear my husband brewing a cup of coffee and I always ask "is that one for me??"

    I will conquer with some of the other commenters that the issues some people may be having is due to using hard water and not filtered. If you are using it at work and are just filling with tap water, then you are going to have these problems. I went through not one, but TWO Keurigs before I figured out I was ruining the machine with using tap water. Now that I have the CBTL and use the filtered water from the refrigerator, or a gallon of bottled water, I have had no issues and the machine runs daily (multiple times a day sometimes), for the last year and a half.

    Only real complaint I have is that I can only buy the coffee at Bed, Bath and Beyond or online. I would also love to see more flavors come out such as seasonal Pumpkin Spice.

      I drink between four to eight cups of lattes a day. Plus between my family and business clients we brew about 15 to 20 cups a day. We stock all the canisters that CBTL sells. I have bought six CBTL machines so far, which includes the one in our motor home.

      I had been wanting a single cup machine so searched reviews, this one gets very good, and say much better than keurig?, so took a chance on cbtl, felt let down, and my one big complaint the coffee is on the weak side even at 8oz, I'm afraid to use a 10 or 12oz setting the coffee would not be drinkable unless you like it that way, expresso is good, tea is ok, but grounds came floating in cup, basically the machine makes expresso then waters it down to fit the cup size, only had it about a month, I'll give it more time and comment later.

      Comments about The Coffee Bean CBTL Americano Single Serve Machine:

      Bought this red one for work. I've had the black one at home for about a year. One of my co-workers complained about the noise so took my first one home. However, after the "K" experiment, I decided to get the red one for work. We all love it, but it is VERY noisy. Luckily, it's very quick so there isn't a long duration of noise. We particularly love the expresso option.

      One drawback is that we sometimes drink too much coffee too late in the day; makes it hard to sleep at night. I solved that with the French Roast decaf. Never in a million years did I think I'd drink decaf, but the Americano makes a very tasty cup. So it's nosiy, but makes a great cup of coffee.

        Comments about The Coffee Bean CBTL Americano Single Serve Machine:

        I bought my first machine last fall for school, when I needed to start drinking only decaf. Not wanting a full pot of decaf sitting around, and knowing no one else on my teaching team drinks decaf, I decided to give this a try. Oh, we are SO spoiled now! Everyone pitches in and buys creamer. They also pitch in for the pods, and we have quite an assortment of flavors and strengths for different times of the day. I loved it so much, that I bought machine #2 for home, along with the frother. I love the frother, too! I took just the machine to my mom's for a family gathering, and the family loved it so much, that I bought machine #3 for my sister and brother in law (and kids) for their anniversary. They all love it, too!

        I have a regular espresso machine which I use when I am not in a hurry, but the Americano is perfect for a wake-up cappuccino to start my day, really good coffee at school the rest of the day, and an evening cappuccino while relaxing. If I don't have decaf espresso, I brew 2 oz. each of two House Blend Decaf pods, and the strength is fine for a cappuccino!

        This summer, I discovered the perfect brewed iced tea. I put a tall heavy glass beer mug full to the top with ice on the lowest level of the CBTL platform, brewed 8 oz of a capsule of English Breakfast tea, added a little sweetener and fresh aqueezed lemon juice, stirred, and it was good to go! It usually needs 1 or 2 more ice cubes after brewing, but this machine is great for iced tea as well as coffee and cappuccino (with the frother).

        If another need for a gift comes up, I can guarantee I will buy machine#4!
