Benefits Of The Product

I have quite a few coffee machines that give up on me after a year or 2 of usage.

So, having a new coffee brewing machine primarily is to start to get to know its features and discovering its flaws.

This 2-way flex brew coffee machine has 2 key features that are beneficial for a single individual or for a group (family or office employees) that brews perfectly for coffee lovers.



It is a great coffee maker, diverse. It does in all formats. In each cup or pot, an exact amount of water poured for the output you want.

The coffee filter (comes with the product) for the ground single cup allows some sediment in the coffee but certainly, it is easy to rinse.
One customer thinks that it is a good product although it is a little limited when it comes to what type of pods to use.

A basket filter (cut down to the size to fit) to the small coffee basket (the one just up the pods). It does make a perfect cup of coffee.

Some carafe pot, when poured, it creates some mess. But, the carafe of 2-way flex brew coffee pot pours perfectly well.


How To Use 2-Flex Brew Coffee Machine


Upon receiving the product, read the manual instruction that is included.

Before first use, wash the removable parts in a warm soapy water, rinse and dry. As per instruction, brew first cycle with water on each side (one side at a time) then discard.

Before use, ensure that your appliance is plugged into the electric outlet.



  • Use the recommended amount of water to get the perfect desired result for grounds. If the amount of water poured more than the recommended amount, it will cause “ERR” message and a long beep.


  • Rotate the brew selection button to select the single serve cup. Then select “Ground” at the “Brew Options” button.


  • Remove the single-serve pack holder to use the permanent filter for your ground.
  • This may seem a little challenging but once you’ve got a hold of it, you can start your coffee machine smoothly & enjoy the desired result.



  • Press the “Brew Option” button to select “single pack photo-appears like a k-cup”
  • Remove the single serve basket to use your pack.



  • Rotate the dial to select “carafe photo”; then press the “Brew Options” to select your the strength mode you desired.
  • Use a non-permanent coffee filter.

Who is The Product For?


The product is intended for coffee lovers and cognitively know how to operate the coffeemaker.

What I Like About The Product


  • Honestly, I love the “Brew Options” feature. Compared to the simple coffee makers I owned previously that have no feature as this.
  • It shuts off automatically when brew cycle is completed.


  • Pause and Serve- the drip of coffee stops when the carafe is removed allowing you to pour your first cup of coffee. When placed back, it will continue to drip.                                                                                                                                                        NOTE: It only allows 20 seconds to put back the carafe on the warming plate.


  • Manual Instruction is simple, easy to understand and follow.

What I Don’t Like About the Product

  • It only brews on one side at a time.
  • Programming mode is not used on the single serve side.
  • Even when using the single-serve side, the warming plate at the carafe side will become hot.
  • It only allows 20 seconds for the pause and serves feature.
