Ever wish you could enjoy a fresh cup of coffee in your home without having to go through all the trouble of brewing it by hand?  Instead of all that messy grinding, inaccurate measuring, and general hassle, why not purchase your very own single serve coffee maker?  Single server coffee makers take the work out brewing coffee, and every cup comes out perfectly.  Popular single serve coffee makers include the Keurig Special Edition K65 Gourmet Single Serve Coffee Maker, the Keurig Elite Brewing System K45, and the range of single cup Senseo Coffee Machines.

Single cup coffee makers run around $100, but they will save you an incredible amount of time each morning, or whenever you want to enjoy a cup of coffee.  These machines can brew you a cup of gourmet coffee in under a minute.  All you need to do to get the machine to go to work is place your cup inside and then press a button!  Each device offers you options as far as cup sizes and many of them even come with a complementary pack of coffees and teas to get you started.  With a variety pack you can enjoy a diverse range of flavors, or you can go stock up on your favorites and enjoy a consistent cup of coffee or tea each day!

One of the most popular single cup coffee makers you can buy is the Keurig Special Edition K65 Gourmet Single Serve Coffee Maker.  The Keurig K65 costs about $125-150, and allows you to brew a cup of gourmet coffee in under sixty seconds.  You can program the brewer to make enough coffee to fill three different cup sizes.  A backlit LCD control center with a brew temperature control makes the device easy to program.  A digital clock readout lets you know what time it is.  Not only is it easy to clean up after you use the Keurig K65, but you only need to empty out the 48-ounce removable water reservoir once every 8 cups!  The reservoir is dishwasher safe, so your cleaning job is easily taken care of.  Most of the time you won’t have any cleanup at all.

We rated the Senseo SL7810/65 Gourmet Coffee Maker our #2 single cup coffee maker of 2013. The Senseo is an excellent coffee maker with thousands of happy customers. It’s one of the few coffee makers currently on the marker that produces a Read More…

Another brand of single serve coffee machine which is very popular is Senseo.  Senseo coffee machines include a whole line of single server products like the Senseo SL7832/55 Single Serve Supreme Coffee Machine, the Philips Senseo HD 7810/65 Coffee Machine, and the Philips Senseo Quadrante HD7860/60 Coffee Pod System.  One great thing about Senseo coffee makers is that they come with a wide range of features and functionality, and there is a machine in every price range.  The upper end Senseo machines with greater capabilities retail at around $200, but if you don’t have a lot to spend, you can get a perfectly good Senseo coffee machine for just $60 as well.  The Senseo 7810/65 may not be designed with a sleek chrome finish, but it can still get the job done in under a minute and provide you with a fresh brew of coffee.

The Senseo SL7832/55 Single Serve Supreme Coffee Maker represents one of Senseo’s finest products.  This is a mid-priced item, retailing at around $80.  Designed of beautiful chrome, this machine can brew a single cup of fresh gourmet coffee with its special spray head and 1.2-bar pressure system in less than sixty seconds.  The Senseo’s frothing chamber tops your coffee with a frothy layer.  The water reservoir holds 32 ounces, and you can select from any of 6 different cup sizes ranging from 3 to 10 ounces.  The machine is adjustable so that you can request a mild or strong brew.  The glowing display will let you know when the water level in your reservoir is low and when you will need to clean and refill it.  The reservoir and other parts are dishwasher-safe.

We rated the Keurig K45 Elite Gourmet Single-Cup Home-Brewing System our #3 single cup coffee maker of 2013. The Keurig K45 Elite is an excellent gourmet coffee brewer but we rated it slightly less was due to the limited amount of brewing Read More…

Another popular coffee maker in the Keurig line is the Keurig Elite Brewing System K45 coffee machine.  The Keurig K45 is a semi-automatic single-cup coffee brewing system which can also make you a cup of coffee in under a minute.  As with the Keurig K65, the touch of a button is all it takes.  There are two cup sizes programmed into the Keurig K45, and a removable drip tray is included for travel mugs.  The K45 comes with a bonus variety box of 12 K-Cups and a replacement drip tray and replacement water reservoir.  The K45 makes brewing coffee simple and also eliminates the messy job of cleaning up most of the time—and makes it a lot less messy when you do have to.  The Keurig K45 is perfect not just for coffee, but also for tea, cocoa or iced beverages.  This machine is priced around $100-120.

Single server coffee makers all give you the ability to make a single cup of coffee in under a minute by pushing a button.  They reduce the number of steps required to brew the coffee and eliminate the messy cleanup process.  You will only need to clean and refill the reservoirs ever so often, and dishwasher safe parts make even this procedure simple and stress-free.  Depending on how much money you are ready to spend you can get a simple, efficient machine for a very cheap price or you can get a luxurious machine at a higher price which includes additional features.

Single serve coffee machines are great for the office or the home.  If you’re going to be using the machine in an office setting, you probably will want to invest in a machine with a large reservoir so that the water won’t have to be changed that often.  For your home, you can go with whatever type of machine best fits your needs.  These personal coffee makers can help you to start your day each morning with a carefree cup of coffee; they are also great for entertaining visitors to your home.  Whatever environment you plan to use your coffee maker in, Keurig and Senseo both offer coffee machines which are flexible enough to provide for your coffee-drinking needs!

Additional Information About Single Serve Coffee Makers

Considering more than half of adults around the world drink coffee on a regular basis, it’s no surprise that there are quite a few coffee makers out there. There are single serve coffee makers, which only make 1 or 2 cups of coffee, then there are the normal ones, which make a whole pot, or about 10-12 cups. Single serve coffee makers are ideal for those who live alone, or those who live in households where they are the only ones who drink coffee.

Keurig coffee makers are the most popular brand for single serving coffee makers. They offer quite a few options, and their products have a track record of working well, and lasting for many years. They definitely aren’t the cheapest ones available, but they are pretty affordable, and worth it in the long run. Having a coffee maker can actually save you hundreds or even thousands of dollars a year, depending on how much you drink coffee. If you buy coffee from Starbucks or another coffee shop, it’ll cost anywhere from $2-$6+ depending on what you like to drink. If you buy drinks daily or on a regular basis, the cost really starts to add up quick, which is why I recommend getting a single serve coffee maker for yourself.

Single cup coffee makers from brands such as Black and Decker and Senseo are great, because they make great coffee, and more importantly in the mornings especially – they make it fast. If you’re like me, you don’t have a whole lot of time to lounge around in the morning before getting to work. I’m usually out the door within 20-30 minutes of waking up, and I don’t have time to wait for a slow coffee maker. If this is your situation, I recommend buying a single serve coffee maker today!
