Is A Single-Serve Coffee Maker Right for You? | Corner One

Coffee is a necessity for many but standing in the strenuous, long line counting down the minutes before you’re late for work, and then swiftly rushing to only spill half of your coffee, is not how many want their day to start. This is why brewing coffee at home is ideal for people who hit the snooze button a few too many times. It’s also a better choice economically and environmentally. But which coffeemaker is better suited for those who want to brew coffee at home?

The Convenience of a Single Serve Coffee Maker
Single serve coffee makers have become just as popular as drip coffee makers, making it the quick and easy choice for many. Simply fill the water to the filter line, turn on the machine, let the water heat, and once the water reaches the ideal temperature, the coffee maker will notify you it’s time to begin. Grab one of your favorite Corner One single-serve coffee pods, insert the pod into the machine and hit the brew button. That’s it! You’re now ready to enjoy your very own gourmet coffee.

Flavor Option Galore!
Single-serve coffee machines allow you to serve a variety of flavors and roasts in minutes just with a switch of a pod! Most coffee pods comes in a pack of eight to 18, however when you order your Corner One coffee single-serve k-cups from Amazon, you’ll receive 100 single serve pods!

A word of caution! Not all coffee single serves are compatible with all single serve machines. When buying a machine check the compatibility with other pods so you can get the most out of your machine.
