I enjoy drinking coffee but the crazy thing is I've never owned a coffee maker before, that is until recently when a brand called Capresso sent me one of their on-the-go personal coffee maker to test out. This coffee maker comes with a 16-oz stainless steel thermal travel mug
but it isn't shown above, my fiance had taken off with the mug to work
by the time I woke up to make myself a coffee, this maker can use a
coffee mug up to 7" tall.
You are able to Brew with ground coffee or soft coffee pods which is nice! It brews a single cup of coffee at a time which is perfect for us because we don't drink coffee everyday and when we do want a coffee we only drink a cup each. This coffee maker heats up quickly to cut your brewing time down, and the removable permanent filter is easy to use and clean I clean it after every use. Having a removable and reusable filter eliminates the need for paper filters which saves you money. Getting the coffee maker set up and ready to brew, you just need to add some water to the back and three to four tablespoons of coffee grounds in the filter.
I did find that the "max" fill level line can be a little difficult to see depending on the lighting of your kitchen because it hides down in the back corner, I would love to see the sign for it a little bigger or a different color to make it easier to see. Over all my coffee was ready in less than three minutes, then all you have to do is add your cream and sugar and you are ready to go. This coffee maker is easy to clean and it doesn't take up a lot of room in your kitchen, so if you are like me on only drink coffee on occasion when you want a cup or two or even if you drink coffee everyday this is perfect for you. The Capresso on-the-go personal coffee maker sells for $49.99 on their website, they also offer a number of other coffee makers, extra travel mugs and bags of coffee.
