If you are considering purchasing a new coffee maker for yourself, the single serve coffee makers like the Keurig would be an excellent choice. You will give yourself and others the freedom to pick and choose different kinds of coffee from cup to cup, and you are able to make it fresh every time. Save yourself some time and money and consider a single serve coffee machine for your next coffee maker.
In 1938, Milan coffee bartender, Achille Gaggia filed a Patent for a steam-free coffee machine. Unlike its predecessors, Gaggias design used a revolutionary piston mechanism which forced water through the coffee grounds at high pressure. It was his quest for the perfect espresso in 1930s Milan that gave birth to one of Italys most iconic brands, and heralded the production of the Espresso as we know it. Traditional Espresso Coffee Machines are the type you see in Café Nero, Costa Coffee etc.
There are several different kinds of single serve coffee machines on the market, but I have a Keurig coffee machine. For the Keurigs coffee machines, there are over 250 different kinds of coffee to choose from. They call their pod a K-cup. K-cups come in the caffeinated and non-caffeinated versions as well. So, you are essentially able to brew a gourmet-style cup of coffee in the comfort of your own home at any time of the day.
After the initial purchase of a single serve coffee machine which ranges in price from $85 to $190, the cost per cup of coffee is much less than that of a cup of coffee from a gourmet coffeehouse. The average cost per cup of coffee is anywhere from $0.65 to $1.25 with a Keurig coffee machine. Compare this to upwards of $5.00 per cup at a coffeehouse. You will save a lot of money with the single serve coffee brewer.
