Hamilton Beach Single Serve Coffee Maker Reviews

Makes a tasty, hot cup of coffee similar in taste to french press coffee.
I have had no problems with spraying or tepid coffee.
Clean up is quick and I don't feel guilty about using plastic cups.
It doesn't take up any real room on my countertop.
If you want a less expensive alternative to the pricier single serving makers, the Scoop would be a great choice.
I enjoyed this maker so much, I bought one for my Father.

This is a great single serve coffee maker. Works in a flash for a good, hot cup of coffee. I love being able to use my own coffee instead of those expensive K-cups. If you are even tempted a little to buy this coffee maker I would suggest you do it - now!!!
A good alternative to K-cup machines or the Senseo
By Comdet

I'm a big fan of single cup coffee brewers since I like to drink different varieties of coffee without having to brew a whole pot of each. I have the Senseo and the Cuisinart K-cup machines. Both are good machines and can be used with your own coffee (e.g., you don't have to use a K-cup or a pod, but rather any coffee you like).

But using your own coffee in a K-cup or Senseo can be a bit cumbersome (especially with the Senseo) since they are primarily designed to use pre-packaged coffee. That option is great when it comes to convenience, but no so good with regard to cost and variety (especially if you prefer decaf coffee).

In contrast, the Hamilton Beach was designed only to use regular coffee. I find it very easy to use - just fill the scoop with coffee, fill the machine with water and you're done. It takes about 2 minutes from start to finish when using the "bold" option (that option slows the water flow down to produce a stronger brew). Simple and easy to clean as well.

The critical factor with the Scoop - as well as all other do-it-yourself single cup systems - is the grind. Too coarse a grind and you get coffee-flavored water; too fine and you get a clogged filter. Unfortunately, it's hard to find a pre-ground coffee that it just right. I grind my own, and after a few experiments with grind size, hit the right spot. If you do prefer to use pre-ground, look for something that has a medium fine grind, such as Melitta.

I'm not happy with the fact that this does not have a water tank. You have to fill it every time you use it. While that cuts down on the size and eliminates some cleaning/maintenance, it would be nice if it had a tank, and allowed you to select various cup sizes.

Looks nice on the countertop and feels like it is decently made. Coffee comes out hot, and you can adjust the cup holder so it can handle both small and tall cups.

Overall I like this, and would highly recommend it as a capable alternative to a K-cup machine.
