Too loud! This coffee maker has a nice sleek design, which is great because it takes up less counterspace. However, this machine is extremely LOUD.....the first time I made a coffee, my husband who was across the room at the time said "Is it supposed to sound like that?!" April 12, 2013
CBTL - can't beat this latte I really like this machine. Better price than K cup brands that were too pricey for me, plus I got the $50 mail-in rebate. The CBTL pods are sold at BB&B and online; you may not find them elsewhere. The CBTL pods are smaller than the K-cups so they are not interchangeable. You CAN, I repeat CAN use the milk pods from Verissmo brand (Starbucks) machine, but CANNOT use their coffee pods. Their pods fit, but they don't have a filter under the foil and the grounds pour into your cup. So, my message is, buy only the Verissmo milk pods. I like the CBTL Hazelnut black w/ stevia. I would not put milk in this flavor because it really dilutes it, it was already mild at level 2. The other CBTL pods are stronger at level 4 & 5 and I use the milk pods for those to back them off. The milk pods are 2% fat around 50-60 cals each. The CBTL machine has a loud hum, but it powers up fast and only runs a few seconds. It drips a 2-3 drips if you move away fast, or just tap it. It's size and the adjustable cup levels are its high points. The cleaning is easy, paper towel only. I use Brita filtered water in my tank. March 7, 2013
I have a keurig and would like to know if you can use your own coffee with the cbtl as well as the keurig February 12, 2013
Better than Keurig Vue!! I just got this one a month ago. The coffee is so delicious! I ended up returning the Keurig Vue because the coffee was water down even when I lowered to the smallest cup. It just didn't give u the coffee shop quality you wanted in the morning. No wonder I was still driving to the nearest starbucks or Cbtl. Making cappucinos is fairly easy. Make sure you got the frother too. I definitely recommend this one over the Keurig if ur looking for that strong coffee quality and not the water down. September 10, 2012
