I have one and love it. Very easy to use and very easy to clean.
I use grounds that I buy from the supermarket in mine for general use, however I go to a coffee shop and buy a specific blend for a treat.
I believe that you can also use pods in it, however I am not sure what kind you can use.
Let me know if you have more questions about it.

Are the coffee shop blends expensive.
He gave me the machine but no coffee. Lol!

I think the pod machines are a great idea if you re not so interested in the "art" of making coffee. But think the pods might be expensive too.

The supermarket blends are reasonably priced. Much better priced than the pods from my understanding. Depending on how much coffee you will drink will depend on the size packet you buy. When it's just me drinking coffee I go through a small packet ($5-10 depending on brand) per fortnight, if the 1kg bags are on special ($20-$25) I just buy one of them and it will last about 6 weeks.
I like the Columbian coffee from the supermarket (it's in a green and black bag) however the Harris coffee isn't too bad either. There is also an East Timor coffee which is quite nice but a little most $$.
When I buy a specific blend as a treat it costs a lot more about $50 per kilo.
