Looking for a single cup coffee maker and tired of seeing your leftover brewed coffee sitting all day on the countertop? Why drink reheated coffee when you can have freshly made single cups every time you want coffee without having to pay $3-5 per cup.
We faced the same problem every day until we found our own single cup coffee maker. Fresh and hot coffee just when we need it. No mess and no reheating. For this post we will show you 7 single cup coffee makers, each less than $40:
Hamilton Beach 49981A Single Serve Scoop Coffee Maker
Price at $39.99 on Amazon.com
Hamilton Beach Single Serve coffee maker comes with a built in stand for coffee mugs. You can brew directly to your travel coffee mug up to 14 oz. It does not come with a travel mug.
We like the stainless steel construction, steel mesh single-serve scoop filter and the built-in adjustable stand that can hold a standard-size cup or a travel mug. One of our favorite features that we think serious drinkers would agree with is that there 2 settings, one for regular (automatic drip) and one for bold coffee.
