The first time I saw a 4 cup coffee maker, I thought it was an impossible dream. Who could have dreamed of a cup-in-a-jar machine? I had been a huge coffee snob for years and believed that the only way to brew a decent cup of coffee was through a large commercial machine. Surely, this cup-in-a-jar contraption couldn’t be real!
A few months later I got my dream machine. My friends were amazed at how easy it was to make coffee. They couldn’t believe I had spent so much money on such a silly idea. What they didn’t know is that I had spent almost $200 on the coffee maker.
So, when I got my new 4 cup coffee maker I really put it to the test. First of all, it was difficult to make coffee with. You can’t stand the crema that comes off the top of the pot after it’s poured in. Sometimes you just have to throw out the whole pot and start over. Either that or you end up with instant coffee.
But, after I got over the difficulty of making coffee I was impressed with the quality of the cup of coffee that I got from my cup coffee maker. My old brewer gave out a funny smell when it was empty, which bothered me. However, the cup of this coffee maker made a wonderful cup of coffee and it did not smell like old coffee at all. It actually had a real delicious aroma to it.
The Cup Coffee Maker
The first time I used the cup coffee maker I actually measured the amount of coffee that I wanted to use. It took me a while to get it right but eventually I just knew that I was getting too much coffee for what I needed. So, I ended up making just enough for one person and one glass of water. Now, that is definitely a generous amount!
After I got used to this cup coffee maker I saw that there was a feature that I had never seen before. It let me set the clock so that the timer didn’t run when I was not using the machine. This really made a difference in my mornings. I would be able to get a lot more work done if I could set the timer to go off when I wasn’t working. That certainly made things easier on me!
Made In White And Not Black
The only thing that I don’t like about the cup coffee maker is that it seems to only be made in white and not black. I am sure that you will find a few other colors that are available. However, it is the standard white that I prefer. If you have allergies or are prone to some of the things that coffee contains then this might not be the right choice for you. I know that for me it worked well but I suppose that if you aren’t susceptible to any of those things that you may not be able to see the advantage of this maker.
It also brews the best tasting coffee that you have ever tasted. Every time you pull it out you will get another amazing flavor. When I first got my machine, I did not know what to expect and was a little worried about the quality. However, after using it for a couple weeks I knew it was going to be perfect for my needs. It is now my everyday cup of coffee and I cannot imagine going without it.
