Melitta One: One Impressions
"I've been back in Kansas City this week, visiting my family and taking care of some business, and have had a chance to use their Melitta One:One coffee maker, which uses individual coffee 'pods' to brew a cup at a time. It's a great concept, especially for someone with a coffee intake like mine. At home, I usually brew about 6-8 cups of drip coffee each morning, letting it simmer all day until it reaches a point where it is so toxic I can't choke it down. With the One:One, I'm able to brew a new cup of coffee each time, which is definitely a better taste sensation. Also, i don't feel like I'm wasting so much coffee at the end of the day, although I'm sure with the increased price of the Pods (about $5 for 18) it works out to be about the same."

Got mine at a garage sale a few years back, couldn't find those pods around here, called Melitta. They sent me the updated holder and a box of fill-it-yourself pods. Thing has been working for those years since then beautifully. Just call them for any support you need, they were very nice and very fast.
I have an relative older Melitta One on One with a 55 mm adapter. Where can I get a newer 62mm adapter (either OEM or generic) that will work on the One on one i have
Thanks in advance
I own three one to one coffee makers (long story). I just contacted Melitta about the leakage problem that has occurred since they have made "universal" pods - designed to fit all pod coffee makers. You won't believe the reply they sent me. It seems that now that they've gone "universal", the pods don't fit the one to one any more. They offered to sell me a $7 adapter to make the "universal" pod fit. I told them to keep their adapter and put the $7 towards a new Keurig machine (more expensive, but at least it makes great coffee, and they haven't gone and changed the cartridges). Ugh!
You may need to get the new larger pod holder replacement. Calling melitta directly will get you the new pod holder and you can use it in your older melitta one:one.
Re: above comment about leaking problem.
After going crazy trying to figure out what was wrong, I opened an old packet and behold they've changed the pods. They're flatter and wider, that is why the brewer leaks, the top doesn't close enough. The water may be backing up into the machine and causing the steam problem.
LUCKY ME. I WENT TO MACYS TODAY AND FOUND 4 CASES OF THE PODS (MIXED FLAVORS) FOR 19.99 EACH LESS 40% WHICH MADE THE PRICE OF EACH CASE ABOUT $12.00. NOW ALL I HAVE TO DO IS FIND THE POT. MACYS STOPPED SELLING THE POT MAYBE BECAUSE OF THE LEAKING PROBLEM
I also have the same problem as above! The unit is just over a year old. Have you resolved the problem? I've emailed the company.
I have had two (first one replaced by Melitta) and both of the Coffee Makers leak. The (hot) water sprays out the front of the makes as it is brewing coffee. Am I the only one who has this problem? I like the convenience of the coffee Maker, but don't like the selection of flavors or the difficulty of finding the Pods. I have found them at Target and got a case at Linens and Things once.
My friend russell orders them from Amazon as well. He buys a case or so at a time - usually of the mixed flavors.
I purchased a One:One coffeemaker from a catalog (if I'd waited 2 weeks later I could have paid $20 less for it at an outlet mall...go figure). While I'm generally pleased with it, the JavaPods are virtually impossible to find at retail stores, so I have to order them from the Melitta Website and have them shipped by mail, a process that uasually takes a week.
Nice Pot, but hard to find the coffee pods.May return and get a brand that offers the coffee!
http://www.cafepods.com - should start to sell melitta compatible pods soon. The pods are smaller than the Senseo so - don't buy any 62mm pods. The Home Cafe pods won't fit either.
I have this as well and we really like it. I have the pods delivered to my house but am wondering if any of the other pods out there will work with this machine.
This is not the Melitta I've been using for the last 5+ years. It's nice to see so many new high tech coffee makers.
