Difference Between Coffee Reservoir Machines & Single Serve Coffee Makers
In case you didn’t realize it there is a big difference between single serve coffee makers and these coffee-on-demand machines by Cuisinart and Hamilton Beach.
These coffee makers brew full 12-cup carafes of drip coffee but instead of storing that coffee in a carafe it is stored in a reservoir within the machine. You can then dispense coffee from the reservoir just by placing your cup under the spout.
How is this Different Than a Carafe?
With a carafe you need to actually pick the carafe up to pour it in your cup whereas with dispenser coffee makers you don’t have to do this. They make refillign coffee in the kitchen a snap.
The cons however have to do with clearning the coffee reservoir which is sometimes a little more challenging and easy to forget about since you don’t see the carafe all day at a passing glance.
With a single serve coffee maker you don’t brew a bunch of coffee all at once and dispense it all day – you litterally brew 6-12 ounces of coffee at a time, each time you want a cup of coffee.
This means that each time you want coffee it will take a new coffee pod, k-cup, or measured scoop of grounds and then you’ll have to wait a minute for the cup to brew… ohh, and there’s no top offs with single serve brewers either.
Obviously there are perks to each of these setups. That’s why we sometimes recommend our customers pick up a coffee maker that brews full pots of coffee and single serve portions. Those can be the perfect balance you are looking for in your morning routine.
The Different Types of On Demand Coffee Makers
Of course anyone brewing coffee directly into a mug or thermos is doing it for convenience usually. Coffee on demand drinkers unite!
Regularly keep your coffee maker’s inner tubing clean and you’ll enjoy perfect coffee cup after cup for a very line time to come!
If you fall into this group there are a few single serve coffee makers on the market that don’t have carafes that also work with a water line hookup. See our post on water line coffee makers to see what is available right now.
