Rated 5 out of 5Â by Zee808 This machine rocks!
Our old CBTL Americano machine broke after four years of hard-core use. It was a work horse and we truly loved that machine. We called our local CBTL stores and was disappointed to find out that they no longer carried their coffee systems (neither Americano nor Kaldi). Kohl's saved the day and I purchased this machine before it went out-of-stock forever. I was leery of the color, but it's a burnt red and looks great on our countertop. It works great too. Thank goodness for Kohl's because we have a ton of capsules waiting to be used, and my hubby was going through French Brew withdrawals (so sad). And best of all the machine arrived in time to save Father's Day and came with a few sample capsules too.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by AngeryCBTLBuyer This is my second CBTL
I had a CBTL for 3 years and it started leaking everywhere. I was unable to fix it so got another. I really do love this coffee better then a Keurig. I have had this for 5 months and now it is leaking like the first. Why can't companies either make it possible to fix the item or make it so it doesn't break in the first place. I will go back to the old school coffee pot. Its a lot cheaper all the way around.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by JaimeJJ truly excellent product
We got the Americano as a gift after admiring my sister's machine. The espresso shots are absolutely wonderful, and it makes good strong coffee and tea as well, not watery or anything like some others we tried. The big water tank means we don't have to fill it all the time. We've had it a while and so far so good, very strong, reliable coffeemaker. I only wish more stores carried the compatible capsules, they are delicious but basically have to be bought online outside of California. Not a dealbreaker, but still it would be nice. We also have ordered incredible capsules from Europe for this machine! If it ever conks out, we will buy another, the coffee is that much better.

My third Keurig lasted only one year before it started its predictable decline. The single serve system is the best option for me as I live alone and I do not choose to brew my morning coffee. I had been given a gift card for Kohl's last Christmas and with a few dollars added to it I purchased this CBTL single serve beverage system. The machine itself is quite attractive and a bit smaller than the Keurig. The directions for use were very clear and I had my first cup made in a matter of minutes. Most importantly the coffee (some samples came with this unit) is excellent! I have now tried most of the flavors that came with the unit and I fully intend to keep this unit and purchase the coffee and tea pods on line, The coffee is so good! And that is indeed the bottom line. I hope you enjoy this ihalf as much as I do f you decide to purchase it.
