Don’t you hate it when, after gulping down the first pot, you brew a second pot and still in your caffeine-bent frenzy of waking up only to have that second pot get old and flat? Coffee is too expensive to let it go to waste. If you’re a fresh coffee freak like me, it’s too old to be consumed after half an hour. I know that’s being picky, but what can I say? For the cost of the coffee you toss in the space of a couple of weeks, you can put this problem to rest for good by investing in a 1 cup Australian coffee maker!
This is also a good solution for a single person who wants just a single cup in the evening, or as a small footprint desk accessory for the office. The typical office coffee pot often lounges at its station after the 9am blitz, is not the best of coffee in the first place and is simply unacceptable in taste. Most employers frown on tossing it, regardless of age. So your personal 1 cup Australian coffee maker is a perfect solution to avoid imbibing old, flat coffee, or worse yet, horror of horrors, decaf!
If you have a staff meeting to attend, you certainly can’t go without a cup (to keep you awake through endless presentations and everyone’s excuses as to why they haven’t progressed since last week’s meeting). With your handy 1 cup Australian coffee maker, it just takes a couple of minutes to brew your cup and you’re good to go. No time or coffee wasted.
It seems this idea is catching on. It used to take a bit of searching to find a store that stocked this single serving Australian coffee maker, but they are now easily available. There’s been a recent addition to the 1 cup Australian coffee maker fleet, which sounds pretty cool. The manufacturer claims it brews your cup in less than a minute! Now that’s fast! As for the coffee, they sell about a dozen different coffee varieties, pre-packaged in a little foil container with just the amount of coffee required. You zip off the vacuum sealed foil lid and that’s all there is to it.
The advantage to having a dozen different varieties is that your palate doesn’t get that flat effect you sometimes get with an entire pot or two of just one type. The net effect is a superbly fresh tasting cup of coffee every time. You also don’t have to have three or four regular cans on hand, all open and losing fragrance by the minute.
Just talking about this sets me to thinking … my current 1 cup Australian coffee maker takes about 4-5 minutes to brew, perhaps because I didn’t pay much for this little luxury. Hmm. Maybe I’ll start dropping hints to my husband. Who knows that this fancy gadget might show up in my Christmas stocking? Valentine’s Day would be OK too.
