Great for the price and even better customer service!

So, I replaced my iCoffee machine with a Nespresso Virtuoline w/frother. I was so excited as I love frothy coffees. However, I'm really disappointed as the coffee is never hot enough. For my "regular" morning coffee I resorted to putting it in the microwave and heating it up before putting it in my travel mug for work. HENCE - my search for a different single cup coffee maker.
I was all set to purchase the Keurig mini, but at $99 (ok $79 if you use your Bed Bath & Beyond 20% off), but decided to do some research. I came across this Single Serve by Sboly. Price was right and there was a "discount coupon" added to my cart!
I received it, took it out of the box and scratched my head. How the heck do you use a K-Cup? It had the brew basket, but the K-Cup wobbled and the needle wouldn't puncture it.... finally realized (duh) it didn't have the K-Cup holder in the box. I immediately emailed Sboly and they responded in a day. They apologized and sent me a new coffee maker. Just like that!
Now, this little coffee maker is the bomb! It's got a small footprint, which I love. I posted a picture next to the Nespresso (yes, I'm going to keep that for my lattes lol!). One thing I like about this little guy is that it's single serve - meaning you have to put water in it each time. Now I don't mind that at all. Not a fan of water sitting in the reservoir... That being said it does take a good 3-4 minutes to heat the water and make coffee. Ok by me as I continue doing things while it's brewing.
Coffee - comes out hot! Tastes delicious. It's awesome!
You can also use grounds in this machine! It comes with a separate grounds basket. I go back and forth between grounds and k-cups (for convenience).
I'd definitely recommend this coffee maker for size, convenience, and if you happen to have a problem their Customer Service is great!
