Rated 5 out of 5Â by AliceInMichigan Best of both worlds
I had been looking at the FlexBrew for a couple of months. I never wanted just a pod single cup server as we enjoy a full pot of coffee each morning. We were in need of a new coffee maker, so I got serious. After enjoying a fancy latte one night with a friend, I was hooked. Reviews on line for the Hamilton Beach Flexbrew were high. I frugally waited to get the best deal, and Kohl's came through. In store, the unit looked a little big and boxy. But it really doesn't take up that much more room than a regular drip coffee maker. I haven't used the single serve side, but the instructions and buttons are easy to use. Have used it a week, and the flavor/brewing is fine. Love the programming, the bright on/off light, and the carafe has a drip guard that my husband needs, as he pours quickly and always DID drip coffee. Only whine: it only comes in black. I can live with that.

The flex brew broke after 1 month. Used about 20 times. The coffee brewed tasted as good as an inexpensive coffee maker. Will never purchase this brand again. Manufacturer was not supportive of their flex brew. They did not care that after 1 month, it was not working. Buyer beware.

The coffee comes out cold from the single serve side and the whole point of purchasing this was so I didn't have to brew a pot each morning. Other than that, you get what you pay for.
