Grind and brew coffee makers are relatively new on the market, but the demand for them is growing because of the convenience of these machines. This type of coffee makers has a few advantages over a regular pair of separate grinder and brewing machine.

  • Grind and brew coffee machines are more compact than the pair grinder – brewer
  • In the brewing process there are less steps to do, you only put your beans and press the start button
  • They can be programmed to brew a cup 24 hours in advance, and unlike with a regular set of brewer grinder, you don’t have to grind your coffee the night before, the machine will do it at the brewing time.

“What is the best single cup coffee maker?” asked one of my friends a few days ago, instead of a greeting.

Hamilton Beach Scoop vs Keurig – Ground Coffee vs Capsule-based Single Serve

Use Ground Coffee with Single Serve

Keurig and Hamilton Beach Scoop are probably the best coffee machines that allow you to use your own ground coffee to brew a cup.

Espro Press Cropped

Espro French Press Coffee MakerThe French press is one of the best coffee makers options for a few reasons. It is a simple, easy to use device, that delivers a great coffee despite the simplicity. But the French pot has also its design flaws, which puts off a lot of coffee lovers.

The folks from Espro looked at all of the flaws of the regular glass French press, and they created a coffee maker that fixes all these flaws. Read on to see how they corrected these problems.
