Allowing for Various Coffee Grind Types The Scoop® Coffeemaker doesn’t need pre-packaged K-Cup® packs or coffee pods, which can get expensive, and not to mention stale, over time. Instead, it comes with a mesh scoop filter that gives users the choice of any flavor (caramel, hazelnut, vanilla, etc), any brand (Starbucks™, Dunkin Donuts™, etc.) and any strength (Regular or Bold) pleasing to their taste.

Top praises:

“I like that it’s a simple machine with basic parts so there’s not a lot to go bad. The stainless is easy to wipe clean and it looks much nicer than most coffee makers. I like the quality of the stainless filter with a good sturdy metal handle ”

“I was pleasantly surprised by the scoop coffee filter. The wet grounds tapped right out to almost clean and anything left behind rinsed out easily. The secondary filter was quick and easy to rinse too. “

Top complaints:

“After a month, the coffee still has a plastic taste. The manufacturer has recommendations on running through vinegar to remove the taste, so it’s obviously an ongoing problem.”

“Now we’re constantly having to do the vinegar wash about twice/week or the coffee maker doesn’t make coffee. “
