    Good Small Cup Brewer

    This coffee brewer is pretty much what you would expect it to be. It has a nice feature that allows you to have the stand up higher when brewing in a normal coffee cup and flip the stand over when you want to brew in a travel mug. I have three minor complaints about this item, but not major enough to make me return or not use it. First, my Contigo travel mug I always use doesn't fit underneath it. It is an average sized travel mug, so I am not sure what size this is designed to have fit under it. So I typically just brew into a glass Pyrex measuring cup that I use to fill the reservoir up and then it makes for easy pouring into the travel mug. Second, the reservoir in the back doesn't hold enough water to brew a decent sized cup for traveling. I typically have to add more water and brew again to get enough coffee. It brews enough for an average sized mug and that's it. So good for just brewing a cup to sip at home. Third, the coffee honestly isn't that hot when it brews and I often heat it up more a little bit in the microwave to get it where I want it to be. Like I said minor things, I wouldn't return it and ill continue to use it because it functions well and it is compact and nice to be able to brew one cup at a time instead of brewing less in a big bulky coffee pot.

    Real nice coffee maker with great features

    This coffee maker does not come with a travel mug, though it is often shown with one. However, it can be ordered separately or you can use one you already have. It will brew as few as 8 oz or as much as 14 oz. The support stand for the cup flips over to accommodate travel mugs and tall cups/mugs. It's easy to use. Just fill your mug with water, dump it into the reservoir, place the cup under the brewer, measure out your favorite coffee and hit either the bold button or the regular button. The bold button works best with premium or stronger coffees. There is a micromesh filter than catches all but the very finest grains of coffee beans, so there might be just a little bit on the bottom of your cup. The only downside is that there is no warmer for the brewed coffee and some drinkers like myself might want a hotter cup of coffee. At times like that, I just place the brewed coffee in the microwave for 20-30 seconds to boost the temperature. It's easy to clean too. Just about the entire unit is stainless steel.

    I love this little brewer! It doesn’t have a keurig system in it, but for me that is perfect as I always use personal ground coffee. It’s very easy to use, easy to clean, and I love the stainless steel look. Only negative thing I can think of is the first 3/4 cups I brewed had a faint taste of plastic, but I used the BOLD option once and after that the taste has been gone. So only advice I have is run water through it multiple times, and put on bold to get rid of that taste, maybe put a splash of white vinager in it if it’s really strong.

    I had been using K-cups for quite some time but wanted to stop using them so much because of the cost. I love the smell and taste of freshly ground coffee and the K cups can't offer that. But I did like the convenience of brewing a single serving size. With this Hamilton Beach Scoop model you just scoop the coffee into a large measuring spoon with a mesh filter bottom and pour water and it brews a perfect cup. No waste, no filters, easy and fresh! The price is much less than some other single serve models and you'll save money on the cost of buying regular ground coffee over cups or pods. Better yet, buy beans and grind yourself, the aroma is awesome!

    After quite a bitt of research, I purchased the Hamilton Beach 49981A Brewer. I do not care for the K-cup models because I like stronger coffee and am not fond of water reservoirs. I prefer to use fresh filtered water feach time I brew. I also wanted to have the option to make a larger cup of coffee. The unit is marked for a 10o or 14oz cup and also has the option of a regular or stronger brew. The two stage filters do a great job of keeping the grounds in the basket and not in my cup. Clean up is fast and easy.

    We purchased the Single Scoop to take to our cabin. We decided to try it before bringing it out. So easy to use and makes great coffee! We were really happy with it since so many family members buy me coffee for gifts...yes, I enjoy coffee. This way I can make one cup at a time instead of a pot that might not get all used up.

    This is a very nice Coffee Maker I use it everyday and sometimes twice a day. It is easy to clean and has two settings- one for bold strength and one for regular. It has a combo measure an brew grounds holder but can be used with Paper filters if desired- I use paper filters which makes cleaning easier.

    This is the second one of these I have purchased. They are well made, easy to use, and easy to maintain. The only thing I would like that would make it 5 star is that it could be more user serviceable. We have particularly hard water and after 3 years of use it finally gave out. If replacement parts were available, I could have repaired it and gotten several more years of use.
