The Best Single Serve Coffee Makers

Updated on June 30, 2011

Coffee has become a part of our culture. The majority of us rely on it in the morning; we use to wake ourselves up, an aid in the beginning of what we hope will be a good day. You can get coffee anywhere - at the grocery store, the local bakery, a fast food restaurant. It's cheap to buy but, over time, that bill adds up; soon it becomes an unessary chore to scrounge money for your daily fix.

So what to do?

Make your own coffee with the help of a coffee maker. You'll save money, as well as time out your day. The qualtiy and taste might not be as 'unique' as you're used to, but it will still get the job done.

What is Single Serve Coffee Maker?

It's just what it sounds like - a coffee machine which will brew your coffee and deliver you a single cup of it instantly. It takes what a super automatic espresso machine did and makes it better, delivering you a good cup of coffee with a single push of a button.

The positives of a single serve coffee maker:

  • It does away with the grinding of coffee beans by having the coffee beans already in special pods. All you do it put the capsule in the coffee machine and you're good to go.
  • Much smaller than big espresso machines; very portable.
  • Much more efficient than other coffee makers.
  • Capsules of coffee can stay fresh for up to 6 months.

The negatives of a single serve coffee maker:

  • Price is similar to other coffee machines that offer more features.
  • Specific capsules only work for specific machines. You cannot mix and match.
  • Some say the taste isn't as 'pure'.


Here is a list of the best Single Serve Coffee Makers:
