Conclusion

The Flavia J10NBK Fusion is a departure from the common design of Keurig or Tassimo pod brewers with its toy-like brewing chamber. The Fusion, however, brews serious coffee -- Alterra brand -- that did very well in our TDS test with a high of 1.75% in our small cup test, which is one of our highest test values. It brews a pretty quick cup as well, finishing a small cup in 42 seconds and large cup in 54 seconds. Beyond its brewing capabilities, it lets users choose their cup size and between coffee/tea, hot chocolate, and cappuccino settings.

We did notice that there are aspects of the Flavia J10NBK Fusion that aren't as user-friendly, though. These include the fact that it's hard to prime and prepare it for brewing and it sprays coffee all over the base during brewing, which requires consistent cleanup. Overall, this is a good pod coffee maker and worth its $124 price tag for those looking for strong coffee and diverse drink options.
