I LOVE it! :)
By My two cents worth!
I LOVE it!!! Goodbye Keurig & expensive Kcups!!! Hello fresh ground coffee with a slightly longer brewing time but makes hot yummy coffee!
Use any size cup you want!
If you use two 14 oz travel cups - add 28 oz water.
If you use two 10 oz cups - add 20 oz water.
If you use one 12 oz cup - add 12 oz water, etc. :)
How long does it take?
Two 14 oz travel cups - 6 min
Two 10 oz cups - 4 min
One 14 oz travel cup - 3 min
One 10 oz cup - 3 min
The water comes down in 2 streams (one for each cup) and also 2 streams for 1 cup - they are close enough to drip into 1 cup. :)
As for the amount of coffee - start out with 2 TBL ground coffee per cup and experiment till you get it just right for you!
Note: You can't make 1 cup strong and 1 cup mild unless you brew 1 cup at a time.
So my hubby (Mr Strong & Bold) and myself (Mrs Mild) had to find a happy medium. :)

For the price that Amazon is selling this product, this is a great buy. This was a perfect addition to my dorm room because of its compact size, and I love the sleek look.
Initially, I was quite disappointed that the lid to the travel mug didn't have an open/close spout, since I had wanted something I could throw in my bag with coffee inside of it. However, I've realized that carrying the mug to class, having a nice cup of coffee or tea that stays warm for a few hours, then throwing it in my bag when I'm done is just as good. (Besides, I've been told that there are very few travel mugs out there that are truly spill-proof, and for that you'd have to shell out a great deal of money.)
I've gotten lots of compliments on the travel mug, which does take a little bit of getting used to drinking out of. It seems to me that if you fill it up not too full (maybe 3/4), then it's easier to drink out of. But overall, I've been very satisfied with this product.

Great Coffee Maker for Couples on the Go!
We purchased this coffeemaker in 2006, and it worked perfectly for 6 years and then one day just a few months ago it stopped working. I think that's a pretty cool deal for a cheap coffee maker. We aren't coffee snobs, we just like it fast and this never disappointed us. I can't attest to how amazing the coffee was or wasn't, but it was pretty decent for us and we could switch out the mugs with our many other travel mugs which made it very convenient. One cute thing about it is that when the lid is opened, it kind of looks like the shape of Darth Vader's head which is kind of awesome to us 80s kids.
