Packaging and Accessories:

The packaging of the brewer is quite effective at conveying the Opus’ special features; like SpinBrew, Dial-a-Brew, and iCup.

Inside you will find a small sample pack, the iCup, a manual, and of course the Opus brewer. There is also a card referencing your “Freedom to Brew.” This of course is taking a shot at the Keurig 2.0 line of brewers that come with a DRM built in which limits your brewing choices out of the box.

The Basics:

Overall this is a very clean, intuitive machine. On the front in the top right corner you will find the display that clearly indicates the current mode and brew size. Below the screen are two buttons; one for power and one for energy saving mode. Also below the screen is the Dial-a-Brew knob. This knob provides a quick and easy way to change your brew size. In the center of the knob is the brew start button.

The reservoir is located on the left side of the machine and has a very respectable 75oz capacity. Overall the brewer feels solidly built but does give up a few points to the Keurig. For instance, the material used is very glossy and tends to collect fingerprints more than the matte finish of the Keurig. Also the drip tray is a chromed plastic compared to the metal cover on the Keurig. Certainly these aren’t deal breakers, but it does give the brewer a slightly less high end feel.

Initial Setup:

Set up, as expected, is very easy. Within a few minutes you will be making your first cup. Once you have the reservoir cleaned and filled it will take the system about two minutes to heat up enough to be ready to brew. Next you brew a 10oz mug of hot water just to get any contaminants out of the system. After that the system is ready to go.
