Does using single cup coffee makers make sense?
We're thinking about buying a single cup coffee maker. Is it a good idea? We like the idea of their simplicity.
There's no doubt that single cup coffee makers are very convenient.
You still get a real cup of coffee, made from ground coffee, but you don't have to deal with coffee beans or grinders.
You buy the coffee in sealed pods, cups or discs, and then place the pod, cup or disc in the brewer. Press one button and you're done. Then throw away the used pod, cup or disc.
(Keurig brewers use K-Cups, Tassimo uses T-Discs and most other single cup coffee brewers use pods.)
It's super convenient, and there's no mess.
BUT...it's an expensive way to make fresh coffee.
If the price isn't an issue, go ahead. If it is, you may want to do the math and figure out how much the extra convenience is going to cost you.
