Our Hamilton Beach Brewmaster stopped working correctly, and we decided to get one of the Kerrigan-clones to make coffee a cup at a time. The little pods are fantastic, but very expensive; so my husband usually makes a pot of coffee first thing in the morning, and drinks most of that himself. I enjoy flavored coffee, and I make a large mug withthe k-cup coffee maker; but using the little filter cup that came with it, that works with regular ground coffee. We both like that we can have just a single cup of coffee when we want that and not have to make a whole cup of coffee. When you use the regular coffee grounds to make the cup of coffee, then it is not any more expensive than making coffee by the pot was. maybe even cheaper because there is never leftover coffee to throw away. Now, I have ordered a small percolator from Amazon, and I can use that in the mornings when I want more than just one cup of coffee. Since I am the only one who drinks flavored coffee, I can’t use the main coffee post where my husband makes his coffee, and I have been reading that percolators actually make the best coffee of any brewing system.
