I bought one a couple of years ago and it works well. Mine did break but I fixed it.

A hose inside the unit separated from it's post and the water being pumped up couldn't make it. I saw water on the counter. I tried the Keurig side and it worked fine. I saw a fix on the YouTube and was able to use my dremel knockoff to cut a small square hole in the back and put it back on. Works fine.

I'd buy it again though. I only paid $80 at Best Buy. It must have been around the Holidays for that price.

All of the coffee maker devices are pretty shoddy these days it seems.

I am that Masked Man.

All you can do, is all you can do.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

I have an older version of the Flexbrew. It's been cranking along at least three or more years and I will buy another in a heartbeat when it dies even though i don't use the K-cup size as much as i used to since Starbucks discontinued carrying them in-store.

@SDGuy,
Great link, thanks!
But the reviews make me hesitant. Have you had any trouble with the glass dome/knob?
I notice the 8-cup is being discontinued...

Yeah, I think I started that thread about the FlexBrew. Still loving ours and as many have pointed out, that is not a good price.

It's not particularly fast for single cups...but for the one or two we make a week...it's better than having a dedicated second machine.

Hmmm...the 8 cup is still available at bezosville for $25 ($10 more for the 12-cup)
Haven't had any problems at all with the dome/knob, but the one thing I did do was add a permanent filter for about $10, also at bezosville).

I make (and drink) mostly espresso, but for brewed coffee, you just can't beat a percolator. Nothing else makes strong enough coffee for me.

I thought those percolators were universally regarded as making the worst coffee? (I guess they would work if you like super-strong gut rot.)

I have gone back and forth between many Coffee Makers and this puppy rocks. Make coffee and go have a smoke and and come back, 12 cups are ready to go. I use filtered water (osmosis) for all coffee pot and still some only made it months. We drink some coffee here. This coffee pot is almost 4 years old.

AllGold, you may be right haha... Yet I’m still happy to try for awhile, at least as an alternate rig.
My parents where fond of coffee made with an electric percolator. When it went caput, they already where hard to find, and had to settle with a drip maker, oh the suffering...

I think it's of the era and the coffee that was used. Percolating is like making Greek or Turkish coffee, with the benefits of not having to wait 20 minutes for the grounds to settle.

Yep, I think the quality of coffee has improved in the time since George & Gracie were flogging Maxwell House...

Agree! I remember my grandparents in NC drank percolated Luzianne.
Black as crude oil, that stuff would wake the dead!

my non-scientific theory:
Percolators, siphon brewers, & french press leave the coffee in contact
with the hot water longer than auto-drips (ADC). Better & stronger brew.
That's an issue Bunn, Cuisinart, & Krupps have addressed by reaching
higher water temp with a controlled release on the coffee. Something
your average < $50 cheapo ADC can't do.
