Nothing beats the aroma and taste of freshly brewed coffee. Whether it’s an early morning kick-start you need, or a refreshing and delicious beverage to warm you up in the afternoon or evening, coffee can always deliver.
If you live on your own, or are the sole coffee drinker in your household, you probably don’t need a large and cumbersome machine, just a compact, attractive and efficient single serve maker.

Factors that most buyers take into account when buying a new machine include:
- Efficiency and durability
- Usability and convenience

- Overall value for money
- Physical attractiveness and suitability for environment
- Compactness and ease of storing
