Drip coffee machine for one mug

Recommended Posts

Hello
When I’m out I like filter coffee, either dripped brewed or by machine.  Being slightly dyspraxic I’ve never been able to master a consistent brew at home, and often end up with undrinkable cups.  I only ever want to make one mug at a time.  I’ve been investigating automatic drip machines.  Whilst I like the look of the Moccamaster, I assume it’s too big for the amount I want to brew.  I also imagine the same would be true of a Chemex Ottomatik. I think that leaves me with the Moccamaster Cup One or Wilfa Classic Plus which I understand has some kind of valve to control the flow.  Anybody got an6 experience of these machines, I would love to know what would work best before I buy.

Thanks Dave :-) Unfortunately, I don't have any experience with the Moccamaster cup one.

However, I wouldn''t necessarily rule out the possibility of a using a manual brewer like the Wilfa pourover, or Bonavita immersion brewer. Bloom with the valve shut for 90s, open the valve then add the rest of the brew water quickly with a regular kettle. Even better if you use a compact/travel kettle (normal spout) that will boil 150ml to 200ml minimum & weigh your cold brew water into the kettle, so you don't need to worry about under/overshooting the brew water weight (you still have to measure out the brew water for the machines you mention).
