Black & Decker DCM18 Brew N' Go
(Temple Hills, Md., USA)
The best coffee maker I've had made coffee for one. I use the Brew 'N Go at work and it fits perfectly on my desk because it does not take up much room. There is no big pot to rinse out and I can use my own coffee cup or brew it in the travel cup that comes with the coffee maker and take my coffee to meetings. No more buying coffee from the cafe or filters which saves a lot of money.
I am the only one in my office that drinks coffee so the portion size is perfect. The coffee comes out just as hot like it would from a full size coffee maker. I also use it to make hot water for tea and a co-worker once asked to use it to make hot water for instant soup mix.
I like having fresh brewed coffee but don’t always or need to make a big pot. Even brewing one cup, the aroma of fresh brewed coffee fills the office. The small 4 cup coffee makers need too much cleaning. With the Brew ‘N Go it just my cup to clean out. The sugar and cream can be added directly to the cup, which is something that usually cannot be done with full size coffee makers. I also like the automatic shut-off when the brewing is done. You can actually make the coffee, grab it, and go.
It’s also compact that I have put it into a small shopping bag and taken it home on vacations. I actually saw a housekeeper in a hotel pour some coffee out of a pot and rinse the pot and put it back, no washing. With the report of hotels not being as clean as we thought, I may be taking it with me to the next hotel I go to or buy another one.
