Mr. Coffee Simple Brew Coffeemaker SL13 - Use Ground Coffee or Coffee Pods


We were visiting out local target this past week and happened upon the new Mr Coffee SL13 Simple Brew Coffeemaker. It claims on side of the package to be able to use ground coffee or coffee pods. Wow. We took a look at the coffee pod filter and maybe it will work.

it can use coffee pods or ground coffee with the same filter.

It's got a very small footprint, and since you can use tea pods and coffee pods, this is a good choice for anyone looking to get a pod brewer at under $40 and get the most variety of hot beverage choices for you single serve dollar.

In the past Mr. Coffee put out their coffee pod machines under the Home Cafe brand, and we always though over the Black and Decker models - the Mr. Coffee Home Cafe coffee pod brewers were much better. We took a variety of pictures and have the full specs. What's interesting is this little brewer can brew up to a 14 oz cup of single serve coffee using coffee pods? How does it taste? We'll have to do a full review to tell.

Does anyone have any data on what the temperature of the water is once it leaves the coffee maker and drops into the cup?

This machine is terrible, at first it was decent for the first couple of months but then 1 pod for an 8 ounce cup was watery you can see the bottom of the cup it looked like a cup of tea, now i try 2 pods for 8 ounces and it is still watery so i use 2 pods for a 5 ounce cup of coffee just so it tastes like coffeee. i am now trying to find another one and trashing this one.
