I work from home and was getting sick of making the minimum four cups of coffee in my coffee maker every morning, just for myself. I usually only want one or two cups a day, and I thought about getting a Keurig to solve the problem but the cost of K-Cups was going to be too much to be worth it.
I bought Cuisinart’s Single Serve Coffee Maker because it seemed like a cost-effective way to use normal coffee grounds and only make as much coffee as I actually wanted to drink. It’s perfect for making a fresh cup whenever I want one without having to waste a whole pot. I don’t really enjoy hand-washing dishes, so cleaning some of the non-dishwasher safe parts can get annoying, but otherwise I love this coffee maker.
I still keep my larger coffee maker around for when guests come over, but as someone who works at home by myself, the Cuisinart Single Serve Coffee Maker has become the perfect daily-use appliance for me
