A new coffee maker, based on a novel method of brewing single cups of coffee, has been getting a great deal of attention. We admit we haven’t tried it yet, but users’ reviews rave about the quality of the coffee that comes out of this machine. In future posts, we’ll present a complete evaluation. Meanwhile, you may want to check out the Keurig B60 Gourmet Single-Cup Home Brewing System for yourself.
Coffee makers that make many cups at a time that have a heating unit to keep the coffee hot have a flaw: after a little while, continuously heating the coffee tends to degrade the flavor. Therefore, we generally prefer multi-cup coffee makers, such as this Cuisinart, that use a thermal carafe to keep the coffee hot. It will only stay hot this way for about an hour or so, but the taste remains perfect the whole time.
