A friend recently decided to buy herself a coffeemaker. She went out and looked around, then came to me and asked what exactly a single serve coffeemaker is.
She understood that these machines make a single serving of coffee at a time (that’s pretty self explanatory). She just didn’t get why they might be better than those that make more cups of coffee.
Single serve coffeemakers are great because you end up with a fresh brew of coffee with each cup. You make just enough coffee each time that you will actually drink; unlike most drip coffeemakers where you tend to make too much and end up with a lot of bad tasting extra coffee after the brew sat on the hotplate too long.
Single serve coffeemakers are also liked by some because they use pods or K cups. These are prepared coffee measures that fit into a slot on your single serve machine. One drawback though is that these machines can only use one or the other, not both. You are limited to the variety that K cups or coffee pods makes.
If you are interested to get a single serve coffeemaker for yourself, check out the Keurig B60 and the Senseo Single Serve units. The former uses Kcups while the latter uses pods.
