According to its owners and users, the model is also less expensive compared to other coffeemakers. Plus, it may last a long time. Because of its small size, the Brew ‘n Go Personal - DCM18S can easily fit in a cubicle or small spaces while still providing your daily caffeine fix.

This coffeemaker model is perfect for students or households with only few coffee drinkers. Some consumers have claimed that the model could last up to five years even with daily use, guaranteeing durability for the long run.

My Brew and Go is over five years old and still going strong! It is quick and easy and I'm looking for a new one so I can put this one in the trailer.

The only gripe I have with it is that I like strong coffee and if I put too many grounds in, it overflows the basket and I get grounds in my coffee.

Easy and fast to brew a cup of coffee-- even if you're still half asleep. One-button operation. Get the permanent filter. Wish it could take a water filter.

Malfunctioning P.O.S.

Have had multiple machines, each one screws up. Finally just can't stand the run-around of trying to exchange it anymore and am going to try and just get a refund. We'll see how that goes...
