Consumer Reports Tests Single-Serve Coffee Makers

Which are the best single-serve coffee makers?

Consumer Reports has tested over two dozen different single cup coffee makers. They ranged in prices from around $30 to north of $300. The surprising outcome? A high priced brewer doesn’t mean that you’ll get the best coffee.

ABC’s 7 News has picked up the story and featured it in their news shows and online. They highlighted that the test included time to brew, temperature and overall taste as some of the most important factors. Surprisingly a high-end, $300 brewer from Bunn did quite badly.

For people who want a quick cup of coffee at home, a single-serve coffeemaker is an easy option. Just pop in a pod and you can brew a cup to go.

Consumer Reports has tested more than two dozen single-serve coffeemakers from names like Keurig, Mr. Coffee, and Starbucks. They cost anywhere from 25 to 300 dollars.

Check out the whole story at ABC 7 News.

The moral of the story and the Consumer Reports comparison simply shows that more expensive does not mean better. We think that a good Keurig brewer is the best way to go due to the combination of brewing quality and speed as well as the huge selection you can get with regards to beverages.
