This machine has dual-functionality, with a 10-cup carafe on the left and a single-serve option on the right. The right side comes with an eco-friendly K-cup style filter, in which you can put coffee grounds or loose tea. The single-serve side pours either 8-oz, 10-oz, or 12-oz cups. The interface is very easy to navigate, with an auto-brew alarm option and a "bold" setting for extra-strong coffee. This machine also has an auto-clean function. The Cuisinart is a great option for a household in which everybody is on different schedules.
