Father's Day is fast approaching (It's next Sunday, June 18th) and anything Single Serve Coffee is sure to please Dad. Right now Amazon.com has some of the best deals on Single Serve Coffee items, along with the Cafe Express club at Green Mountain. We like any of the club ideas for parents, as you can give the the coffee maker and each month they'll get more coffee for it without them calling and bugging you. Trust me - you don't want your parents calling you caffeine deprived.
If you were going to buy any of the Single Serve Coffee machines right now in time for father's day - we recommend the following four levels of Father's Day gift buying: Out of this World at $800, Over $200, $165 and Under, and Under $100.
Out of This World $800 - Nespresso E350 Romeo
We recommend the Nespresso E350 Romeo Single-Serve Automatic Espresso Machine. It's sleek interesting and well - expensive. Perhaps you could go in on this for your Dad with some of those other siblings but take most of the credit for finding such an amazing espresso machine. - (Read our review)
Bunn My CafeOver $200 - Bunn My Cafe Bundle
We recommend the Bunn My Cafe coffee brewer and a set of the Aloha Island Coffee pods for Dads. It's the perfect combination to get started in the coffee pod world and Bunn has great product and a great brewer. - (Read our Review)
$165 and Under - Keurig B50 Bundle & Cafe Express
We recommend the Keurig B50 and Cafe Express Club from Green Mountain. This combo will result in a great brewer with little mess and over 48 Free K-Cups by signing up your Dad for the Cafe Express club. - (Read our Review)
Under $100 - Senseo Bundle
We recommend the Senseo (in black of course) and a extra set of Senseo Dark Roast pods. It's the basics of single serve coffee, and with the Senseo at $50 bucks - hard to pass up. This deal will be at most $65 and you might even eek out some free shipping. - (Read our Review)

If you're looking for a Father's Day gift and have a few siblings to split the cost, we think the combination of a new Grindmaster Brewer at $199.99 and some coffee pods could be the perfect gift. We reviewed the Grindmaster GPOD PrecisionBrew single cup brewing system not too long ago and we really liked it.
The GPOD is easy to use and makes one of the best cups of pod coffee we've had. You can get the brewer at Amazon.com and also pick up some pods for it in time for Father's Day. You can purchase the brewer at Grindmaster GPOD PrecisionBrew Single Cup Coffee Brewing System and we think the Private Reserve DIAMOND 100% Kona Coffee Pods will go quite nicely with the Grindmaster Brewer.

We think you might do your Father's Day shopping a bit earlier if you can get $22 off and FREE Shipping on Tassimo (you can read our review of the Tassimo here).
Update:We got this deal a little confused earlier when it was sent into us. It's a total of $22 off the list price and FREE Shipping. The offer code for $25 off does not apply to the Tassimo machine as it is not being offered by Amazon.com directly. Tassimo is normally priced at $169.99 and this is the lowest price we've seen for Tassimo at Amazon.com.

What's new about the Nespresso Essenza C100? How about it stopping automatically when the espresso shot is done. We loved the Nespresso C90 but it didn't automatically shut off. Several times we've turned our back thinking it would shut off (all of our other single serve coffee machines do) and gone a little overboard on how much water made it to our espresso shot. The Nespresso C100 will also allow you to pick what shot to put on the brew button. You can choose between the 5 oz lungo shot or a standard espresso shot.
- High-pressure pump (19 bars)
- Thermoblock heating element
- Programmable and automatic control of the amount of coffee in the cup
- Functional handle allows for easy coffee preparation
- Automatic ejection of used capsules on lifting the handle
- Collection container for used capsules
- Removable water tank (1L capacity)
- ABS housing

If you're looking for a comparison on these three Keurig brewers, we ran a comparison not too long ago that should fill you in.
Common to all three Keurigs:
- All three make the same great cup of coffee.
- All three have the same sized water reservoir
- All three will fit travel mugs
- All three will take any K-Cup you throw in them

The Keurig My K-Cup reuseable coffee filter is now available at Amazon.com for $15. We recently reviewed this little wonder and found it to be quite good. Plus if you need to convince someone in your household to finally bite the bullet and get a single serve coffee machine, then telling them they can use any coffee they want will help them get over their outdated drip coffee maker.
The Keurig My K-Cup reuseable coffee filter will work in the Keurig B-40 Elite, Keurig B-60 Special Edition, and Keurig B70 brewers.

There wasn't a ton of single serve coffee deals for March 2006. We did see the Senseo single serve coffee maker adjust in price, and also various other single serve coffee makers have sales. If you're looking for the latest deals check back in our Single Serve Coffee deals section
