Making great coffee at home has never been easier, especially when you make coffee K-Cup® style. Why bother with the hassle of a conventional electric drip coffee maker or the old fashioned filter style method – it’s a real pain to scoop and measure coffee (you inevitably spill coffee grounds) plus the flimsy paper filters are enough to make you run to your favorite barista. When you have an on demand brewing system it’s easy to make barista style coffee one cup at a time plus there’s no glass carafe to clean, no warming plate to scorch the coffee and no leftover coffee.
Making great coffee is both an art and a science and single serve on demand brewing systems get it right. The coffee is brewed one cup at a time so each cup is custom made and always fresh, hot and flavorful. To make a cup of coffee you select a coffee pod and insert it in the machine. Place a cup, mug or glass under the brewing port and press a button – in less than one minute you have fresh coffee that is ready to savor and enjoy. The science is in the machine – it issues the exact amount of water designed to bring out the best in the brew (the correct water to coffee ratio is essential for great results) and then the water is heated to the precise temperature which ensures the coffee will never be bitter.
A Keurig® K-Cup Brewer is perhaps your best bet if you are looking to get an on demand brewing system for home use – they introduced the concept to the United States and are the clear market leader. This is important not only because you want good quality and state of the art technology but because you want access to the widest variety of coffee pods. Shopping online is a great way to research both brewers and coffee pods – check out BedBathandBeyond.com or a similar site to see what model might best suit your needs.
