If you are like me, you are the only person that is drinking coffee in your home so you don’t need a great big coffee maker. This is where the single serve units come in handy.
They are designed to give you just one cup of coffee at a time so you get the best flavor from your beans. The larger units are designed to give you the best taste based on 10-12 cups. This is why you don’t seem to get as good coffee when you make small batches in your regular coffee maker.
As there are so many different types of single serve coffee makers out there to choose from, here is a short list to help you out.
The Singe Serve Scoop Coffee Maker is a handy little machine that comes in stainless steel to match your kitchen decor. It boasts that it brews a hotter coffee than its leading competitors so you know you will have that nice hot cuppa to get you going for around $60.
To brew, it comes with its own scoop so that you can get the perfect amount of grinds. The scoop works as the filter as well so you scoop and put it into the machine. This takes the guess work out and gives you the confidence that you will have a decent cup of joe.
For those on the go, it can fill up to a 14 ounce travel mug or if you prefer, you can use your favorite mug. The base is adjustable so you can fit the mug you want.
If you like your coffee or you have two of you on the go, the Toastess Silhouette may be for you. This machine comes with the ability to brew two travel mugs so you don’t have to wait for that second mug. It even comes with the mugs so you don’t have to worry about finding the right one.
It has two separate brewing chambers with their own permanent filters. This gives you the flexibility to brew two different coffees at he same time. This way if you like your coffee strong and your partner prefers flavored, you can both enjoy what you like. At under $50, this is truly a versatile coffee machine for home use.
For a compact and inexpensive alternative, at just under $20, the Black and Decker Brew ‘n Go Personal Coffeemaker is a good option. It comes with a 15 ounce stainless steel travel mug that should fit into most cup holders.
It is compact (approximately 10″x7″x6″) so it will not take up too much counter space or will be easy to store in the cupboard. The parts are dishwasher safe so it is easy to clean up. For the money this is a decent little unit.
Hamilton Beach has come up with the best of two worlds with their 2-Way Brewer Coffee Maker. This machine can make single serve coffee or you can make a full 12 cup pot. This means that you don’t have to own two different machines to suit your needs (one cup or a full pot).
It comes with its own scoop that measures the coffee grounds so you get the best tasting cup. It also allows you to chose your brew strength to meet your needs. Being programmable allows you to set it up to brew when you are asleep or out so you can have your coffee when you want it.
If you are looking for a coffee maker under $100, this unit will do you right as it comes in at around $80.
