I love fresh coffee. Before I had a coffee maker that would brew for about a dozen or more people and it is only me in my apartment. There are times when I would drink as much as 2 cups but I am limiting myself to only one cup per meal. Thus, the need for a single cup coffee machine is apparent. The doctor ordered it! Good thing I found one and I am loving it because I always have a fresh cup of coffee every time. Plus,I no longer have to worry about wasting coffee.
