A single-serve coffee maker will cost you more than a traditional drip machine but they will make you a cup of fresh coffee in seconds (literally) and there is no messy grounds to clean up. If you have been interested in these types of brewers, here are the best ones on the market right now.
The Tassimo is a very popular model and is without a doubt the most sophisticated one. The pods that fit in the Tassimo (T-discs) have a bar code on the top of each one and the machine reads it before it starts to brew. Once it knows what you are brewing, all the details are taken care of. You get the optimum temperature, brewing time and water pressure with each cup.
The pods are available in many different types of coffee as well as tea and hot chocolate.
