Single Cup Coffee Makers Comparison 

This chart is comprised of the most popular models today; they are grouped on different features such as water capacity, price range and type of coffee delivery used (K-cup, pod, or combination of both.) I know this chart probably doesn’t look like a work of art but it will let you drill down to different qualifiers of personal importance.

Click on the model name to go directly to the full review to learn more about a particular model or you can use the search box to the right.

NOTE: I have made a few changes lately; one thing was to remove all of the discontinued models from the list. So you don’t waste your time reading about models you can’t buy any longer. In 7 years a lot can change with a market!

P.S. If you are on a mobile device, you may need to use the up/down arrow keys to scroll through or better yet, use the Search bar. I apologize for the inconvenience.

single cup coffee makers comparisonCoffeemaker Parameters Explained

There are a number of various items for consideration, but I feel that the two below are some of the most important. At the risk of sounding too redundant I focused on the most important criteria below as they have stronger influence on consumers’ long-term satisfaction.

Coffee Delivery

Some models use K-Cups exclusively while others will easily accommodate both K-Cups and soft pods. Also as a rule of thumb if the model accepts K-Cups it will generally accept the refillable “make your own” K-Cups as well. A few models will accept the whole enchilada, such as the Bunn MCU. The individual reviews will go into greater explanation of which delivery systems are accepted.

Reservoirs

Some coffeemakers don’t actually have a reservoir to keep water on standby and are strictly a one cup of water in and one cup of coffee out operation. Others have reservoirs of varying capacities; how great an amount of water you want to have on standby really depends on your overall lifestyle habits (like entertaining? multiple coffee drinkers? solo coffee drinkers? etc.)
