Millions of people around the world start their day off with a cup of coffee. Some will brew a cup at home while others may get theirs at a coffeehouse. If you are thinking about purchasing a new coffee maker you should consider the advantages of the new single serve machines that are available on the market. One advantage of single serve coffee machines is that they use something called a pod to brew the desired coffee. A pod contains enough coffee to brew one cup of coffee. Because of this there is not a need to make a whole pot any more.
The drip coffee machines are usually electric ones that heat the water and then pump it over the grounds. However a stove top type is still used. The water is boiled in a tea kettle and poured into a top reservoir with holes in it. A smaller container below holds the coffee grounds usually with a filter. When the water finishes dripping through to the bottom the coffee is ready to drink. Both the electric and stove top makers come in many brands and in a wide range of prices. The less expensive ones require a filter while others may come with a permanent gold-coated coffee filter or other permanent filter.
Let us start with single cup coffee makers that are ideal for college students or single people. As evident by the name these coffee makers deliver single cup of coffee. Again there are thermal coffee makers as well that provide delicious fresh and hot coffee. These coffee makers are also available in a number of colors and sizes. Another popular type is the French press that produces quite strong coffee. This device is also known by other names like press pot and coffee press. The coffee produced by this machine is superior in a number of aspects.
Other similar coffee machines use a tube in the center to pump the water to the top where it drops back down over the coffee grounds. They are coffee percolators and coffee urns and come in varying sizes. Urns have greater serving sizes that go as high as 60 cups for home use. Another coffee machine makes coffee by putting coffee in the bottom of a cylinder which is usually glass. A filter the size of the inside of the cylinder is then pressed down to the bottom producing the coffee. These coffee machines have names such as French press water press a press pot coffee press coffee plunger or cafetière.
