Note: The Bunn MyCafe is becoming increasingly difficult to find. We're leaving this review up in case you have the opportunity to pick one up used. If you're looking for a new pod brewer, take a look at the updated model, the Bunn MCU.
The Bunn MyCafe serves alongside the Grindmaster OPOD as the best of the best when it comes to pod brewers. If you're looking for a pod brewer, make sure this one's on your short list.

When we took this machine out of the box, we were very impressed by its light weight and small footprint. The materials appeared to be high quality. There are two main brewing settings on this machine.
This feature is excellent and puts a good deal of control in the hands of the user. The pulse setting is technically for tea, but we found that it was also great for coffee. We use the pulse setting almost exclusively because it provides optimal extraction (at least for our taste buds)
A second feature we really appreciated about this brewer was that it brews using 200 degree water. Most other brewers use a lower temperature, and we think it shows in the taste of the coffee. Coffee brewed at 200 degrees is far superior to coffee brewed at 190 degrees.
You should have no concerns about the quality of Bunn's line of brewers. The quality is top notch. While this is not a commercial grade brewer like the OPOD, it will be more than sufficient for heavy home use.
Bunn does a phenomenal job of supporting its brewers. Any problems with the machine will be handled quickly and professionally.
Bottom LineThis will be the brewer of choice for most pod enthusiasts. This machine brews tremendous coffee, is readily available, and comes at a very reasonable price. Here's a direct link to this brewer on Amazon: BUNN MC MyCafe Single Serve Pod Brewer.
