New Home Cafe Single Serve Coffee Makers Arrive for Review

Img 2040 Img 2041We've received the new Mr. Coffee Home Cafe and the new Black & Decker Home Cafe to review. We reviewed their earlier releases and weren't as impressed as we were with Senseo and other single serve coffee pod brewers.

The new Black & Decker Home Cafe Generation 2 is a bit more compact and features a total redesign.

It's been over a year since we tested the original Mr. Coffee Home Cafe. We liked this Home Cafe single serve coffee brewer much better than the Black & Decker Home Cafe. The quality of the Mr. Coffee was a little better and we also felt the coffee it produced was a little better as well.

We can only hope the quality of the machines has been improved. The first generation models didn't pass the Single Serve Coffee review process with flying colors and several threads and posts continued to point out the quality concerns of this single serve coffee brewer.

Expect a full review in the coming weeks and we'll add these two brewers into our Big Brew Off article.

I purchased one of the Mr. Coffee machince last Nov-Dec and I think it works fine. I like having the option to up to 14oz at a time. I have used senseo, folgers and millstone pods and all seem to do very well. It comes with three pod holders, one for a single pod, one for a double pod (stronger coffee) and one for specialty coffee like cappucino. I like very much it.

I got one of these for Christmas, and it makes decent coffee with Senseo/Douwe Egbert pods. Millstone pods were kind of weak, and the cappucino ones are barely acceptable.

What gets on my nerves is where the instructions say "Do not use any other manufacturer's pods or you will risk damaging your machine." That should be corrected to read "you will risk damaging our revenue stream," because it's a bold-faced lie.
