Why make a whole pot of coffee when you’re only craving one cup? There must be a better way, and CoffeeCow may have just the solution you have been searching for. By choosing a one-cup coffee maker, you can free up valuable countertop space and avoid wasting coffee grounds. Brewing great coffee at home is easier than you might think, especially with a single-cup coffee maker in your kitchen. Despite the popularity of coffeehouses, single-serve coffee is in demand and shows no signs of slowing down. Just follow these few simple steps to brew fresh coffee at home or the office.

  1. Fill your coffee maker’s reservoir with cold water. Fresh water allows the natural flavors and notes of your coffee to shine through. Although your coffee maker heats up the water while dispensing, you should avoid filling your water reservoir with warm or hot water. Hot water can often make the coffee taste bitter. Tap water will suffice, but the mineral content may affect the overall flavor. If your tap water contains atypical amounts of sodium, potassium, iron, copper, phosphorus, or zinc, you may prefer to use bottled water or a purifier for better flavor.
  2. Select your favorite K-Cup® pod or compatible capsule and install it in the coffee chamber.
  3. Place your coffee cup, mug, or tumbler beneath the coffee chamber. Some coffee makers include a drip tray to reduce spillage. Pull the lever down, choose the correct serving size, and let your brewer do the rest.

Whether you are the only one who likes a special coffee blend or you work in an office filled with many preferences, a one-cup coffee maker can make the world of difference. Smarting brewing systems such as Keurig’s OfficePRO® can even support a department of up to 15 people. Looking for a lot of great features in one convenient machine? Look no further than the My Café® single-cup brewer by BUNN®. This cutting-edge coffee maker is compatible with ground coffee, K-Cup® pods, soft pods, and tea bags. Feel free to brew, steep, or dispense just about anything. The dispensing feature is also ideal for making soup or other meals that require hot water. Ready to up the ante?

Escape the tedious process of removing filters, rinsing cartridges, and measuring coffee grounds. Invest in a one-cup coffee maker for your home or break room and you will soon discover the difference in quality. Each single-cup coffee maker is unique, but most come with tubes that pierce the pod or compatible capsule from the top and the bottom. The brewing system then draws just enough water from the reservoir, heats it, and shoots it through the pod to brew the perfect cup of coffee, tea, or cocoa every time. Brewing one cup at a time can reduce waste and your overall impact on the environment. If you have any questions about this article, please contact a member of our team for additional information.
