How can you have great coffee brewed in your kitchen all day long?
by Lisa Banks
I work at home, and I like to have a cup of coffee at intervals throughout the day. However, since it's recommended to drink brewed coffee right away, how are you supposed to make do without making a new brew every time?
I have a 12 cup machine and I don't think I can make just one cup at a time. Furthermore, I don't want to have to make it each time. But everyone is right, it doesn't taste that good after it's been sitting there a while, even if it's turned off and has to be reheated in the microwave.
What do you recommend? Is there a way I can brew a few cups in the morning and just go back to it throughout the day? What about a stainless steel carafe? Would that help?
I also work at home and face the same problem.
If you have a few people wanting coffee at the same time, like at breakfast, then a regular drip brewer is fine. But not for folks like us who want a fresh coffee from time to time during the day.
Getting a brewer with a thermal carafe is one approach, and I used to have one of those.
But for us all-day coffee drinkers nothing beats the convenience of a single serve coffee maker.
I have a Keurig B60 Special Edition. Each time I want some coffee, I simply put a K-Cup in the brewer and make a fresh cup.
Using the Keurig is a little more expensive per cup that using a drip brewer, but the price difference narrows when you consider the amount of stale or unused coffee you pour down the sink with a drip brewer.
Take a look at the Keurig B60 Special Edition and see what you think.
