With the success of the Egg McMuffin maker, I decided to extend my breakfast-making appliance collection to include a single serving coffee maker. I don’t traditionally make lots of coffee, but I figured I might if I wouldn’t have to commit to anything but one cup at a time.
Of course, I had to alter it to say “Simplehuman Ipod Brewer.”
One of the reasons I chose this one was that it was the only one that I saw that claimed compatibility with most of the available pod coffee products that are out there. (i.e., no DRM.) Of course, I proceeded to buy a crapload of the brand of coffee that comes with the machine.
Operation is pretty simple, you fill the tank with water, turn on the machine, and wait for the water to heat up.
Some people (coffee snobs) would object to buying anything other than coffee beans that you grind yourself. One friend of mine suggested that half the fun is sniffing the coffee before you make a pot.
Of course, you can still get that effect.
So you load the coffee pod into the hatch.
Then just press play. I mean, just hit brew.
Yummy coffee. (Next machine to buy?, I’m thinking waffles.)
