Good machine /Esspresso pods NOT available Bought this machine for making espresso , this is a pretty no fuss machine that makes a good espresso drink . my problem has been over the last 2yrs is finding the espresso pods . Bed bath and beyond in my area is ALWAYS OUT ! i used to find them at Target , but they are no longer going to carry these pods for the CBTL. I have asked BBB in my area to please stock more of this item , talking to the manager and a person from the CBTL company both have done no good . I have stopped using my machine , got out my old reg coffee maker and went back to drinking reg coffee because i got tired of running all over trying to find the espresso pods . Iam told it is a "manufacturing problem ", you would think after this long something would have been done to resolve this problem . I was at BBB a few weeks ago , checked the CBTL pods again NO ESPRESSO pods except the DECAFE were available . too bad it does make good espresso IF you can get the pods!! back to drinking regular coffee for now, until i can afford to buy a espresso machine that does not use pods !

BEST Single Serve Coffee Maker!! I, for one, am one of those people that reads reviews so I know how important it is when coming to a decision on something, especially a coffee maker lol. I couldn't be more pleased with the CBTL coffee maker!! I absolutely LOVE it and the tastes of all of the coffees I have tried so far. I have had a Tassimo and a Keurig and will NEVER go back after trying the CBTL!! It is so high tech compared to my last single serve coffee maker and I love all the choices in sizes of coffee too! Not to mention the huge selection of delicious coffees to choose from as well. If you are thinking of buying a new single serve coffee maker, look no further. You have found "the one"!! April 8, 2013
Tastes better than the 3 Keurigs I've been through The first single-cup brewer I ever owned was the Philips Senseo- and I felt it made great coffee except for the fact that the pods and brewer could be a little messy. Keurig seemed a dream come true- zero cleanup! Yeah well that dream died with three machines that died on me. Thank goodness for a certain warehouse store's excellent return policy. Enter Bed, Bath & Beyond and CBTL- and a rebate that made the machine irresistible to try. So far I've been stunned at just how good the coffee tastes from the CBTL Americano machine! It has what I liked about the Senseo (better tasting coffee through pressurized brewing) and the tidy clean-up of the Keurig. Now all that's left to find out is how long the machine lasts. If it proves reliable- then CBTL has a winner that they need to market better. That's the one thing I believe is hurting these machines- there's no marketing muscle behind them. Everyone knows a Keurig when they see it- but at my 2013 New Years Eve party- no one had heard or seen of the CBTL machine, and everyone liked it. You can vary the size and type of capsule to achieve the taste you prefer. The fact that the system uses pressure- I believe most coffee drinkers will find something to like about this system. If you like espresso- and don't want another machine clogging up your counter- you have two reasons to try this system. I put my espresso machine in a box in the garage and gained a lot of counter space back- bonus! Bear in mind that the CBTL capsules are a little bit more expensive- but occasionally they are discounts, and there' s also BB&B's famous 20% coupons! PS: there's no "do it yourself" capsule yet either- so you can't use your own ground coffee. Hopefully some entrepreneur will remedy this soon. March 1, 2013
