Are You a Coffee Lover? Try These Single Cup Coffee Makers

Updated on January 10, 2016

Single Serve Coffee Makers at Your Service

Have you ever brewed coffee in a regular coffee maker only to find out that you ended up consuming just one cup of coffee and throwing away the rest? Well, you can solve that problem by buying a single cup coffee maker or a single serve coffee maker.

Obviously, the biggest advantage of a single cup coffee maker is that you don’t have to worry about the precious coffee going to waste. Another advantage is that you can brew your own cup of coffee anytime, anywhere and not have to worry about looking for someone to share what you brewed. The third advantage is that some of these single cup coffee makers come with travel mug, so after brewing, you just shut it down, grab the travel mug and you’re good to go! Lastly, if you are with a group of people who love to drink different kinds of coffee, you can just switch your cup, brew another single – serve coffee (of your preferred flavour) and you can instantly enjoy the kind of brewed coffee that you want.

So how will you know which single cup coffee maker is the right one for you? Well, research and read the Internet, of course. Or better yet, go to and you can find a wide variety of single serve coffee makers. Here are just some of these choices available in

      I have to say my all-time favorite single cup is the Vietnamese coffee percolator -- check it out here! Throw a dab of sweetened condensed milk into a glass and stick this bad boy over the top of it and count the seconds to coffee heaven.
