Billy's Review:

Whether you work from home, take an online course, run a blog or many other things, then you probably have had a cup of coffee beside you on more than one occasion. Being a freelance writer, like me, means cramming in late night writing sessions, which can't be done with out one or several cups of coffee. My coffee pot is upstairs and the last thing I want to do is run up there to fix a cup of coffee. It would be much simpler to have a single coffee maker next to my desk. I hear good things about the coffee makers that use the coffee pods, but the majority runs about $100 or more!


Luckily for me I got the chance to try the Bella One Scoop-One Cup Coffee Maker, which comes in several different colors - black, blue, green, red and purple. As you can see from the picture above, I was sent the blue version. Additionally there is a 14oz. Bella mug with the mini coffee maker.

The Bella One Scoop One Cup Coffee Maker makes only one cup of coffee from a 5oz. (regular cup size) to a 14oz. mug. There is a dip tray on the base of the machine that can be moved to a higher level for smaller cups. You don't have to worry about buying a filter either, as it comes with a permanent coffee filter, so you can just rinse it out and use it again and again.

The coffee maker is simple to use. Just pour the correct amount of  cold water into the water tank (don't worry there are water level marks to guide you to the correct amount), pour whatever amount of coffee grounds into the filter tray, close the lid, place an empty mug on the drip tray and push the red ON/OFF button. A cup of coffee will be done before you know it. Make sure to unplug the coffee pot when it finishes brewing, as the machine doesn't have a power saver or an automatic shutoff.

I have enjoyed using the Bella One Scoop One Cup Coffee Maker, as it makes one strong cup of coffee. It is small enough to fit in a home office, a dorm room or a small kitchen. I think it would make a wonderful gift for a single friend or relative, a college student or even a grandparent. I have seen them in a Walmart store for just under $20, so it could easily make a great affordable Christmas present for someone.

  2. At the end of the day, both of these single-serve coffee technological innovation are excellent for a cup of fresh made The Best Coffee Maker Review, but understanding how much cash the KRUPS device helps you to save me, along with being able to produce any coffee I want, closes the cope.

  3. This thing breaks after a month or two of use. A total rip-off. Just check out the Amazon reviews
