Sure making single serve coffee is pretty easy but it does take a lot our of us each morning. There's picking the coffee, opening the machine, and then having to push buttons to brew it. We're just tired from thinking about it.
This is where the Robotic Keurig single serve coffee maker comes in - a company called FOCUS Integration had created the JoeBot. The JoeBot does more than just push the brew button on the Keurig. It can load in new capsules, swap out full and empty coffee cups, and even label the cardboard sleeve with a custom design.

The Cafejo My French-Press with K-Cup Pod and Ground Coffee Adaptors is the the only manual, French-press style, single-cup brewing system that brews cups, pods, caplets, and ground coffee. We've been using the Cafejo My French-Press exclusively over the past 2 weeks, and we're impressed. We've been brewing various cups of coffee using K-Cups, Pod Adaptors, and reusable coffee filters and all the single serve coffee produced has been excellent.

As the only person in my household to enjoy a nice cup of Joe occasionally, I was on the hunt for a new K-Cup brewer that wouldn't take up much counter space, and also make a fresh cup of coffee each time I wanted one. The Mr. Coffee single serve coffee maker fit the bill.
I saw the Mr. coffee machine and it was smaller and more slim line for the counter top so I bought this as an upgrade for my coffee indulgence. A single serve brewer is ideal for me due to the fact that I want to enjoy the rich strong blends available without the hassle of learning where to get them and the correct way to make them.

The Cafejo My French-Press with K-Cup Pod and Ground Coffee Adaptors Plus is the only french press to our knowledge that uses single serve coffee pods and K-Cups to make a great cup of coffee. Like other french presses, the My French-Press uses pressure and turbulence when brewing a single cup of coffee. It comes with a microwave safe pitcher that allows you to heat water to the ideal brewing temperature of 195° to 205° Fahrenheit. Brew with hot milk and make lattes, cappuccinos and hot chocolate too. The My French-Press is great for small kitchens, dorm rooms, travel, camping, boating, RVs and the home or office.

There is direct line water plumbing, and a fully automatic design. It's interesting that this is not a K-Cup brewer in disguise, but it's own single cup system that won't use K-Cups or other single serve coffee pods.

If you're looking to spend $11000 bucks on a coffee maker designed by both NASA and ex-Apple employees than look no further than the Blossom One. The Blossom One Limited, a professionally designed, expertly engineered, precision single-cup brewing device for homes and cafes is going to take the next leap and allow for sharing of coffee recipes by using a QR code connected to a database that harvests and stores recipes. If you own a Blossom One you'll be able to use the Blossom app and send your coffee recipe to the cloud.
What do cloud enabled single serve coffee makers allow you to do? Well they'll allow you to brew perfect coffee every time and craft ideal tastes from the larger community at a whole. For $11000 we can only hope the Blossom One will momma bird the entire cup of coffee it produces to us. :-) The Blossom One is also upgradeable in the future and modular in design so hopefully you can kick out another $2000 in accessories in a year or so.

The Café Valet Single Serve Coffee Brewer Starter Kit works exclusively with the Café Valet disposable brew basket and coffee filter. The starter kit includes a variety pack of 18 single serve Café Valet dark roasted 100% Arabica coffee filters and disposable trays. The brewer features an automatic shut off with no hot plate for added safety and UL commercial approved Brews directly into your favorite cup or mug.
We've seen these brewer setups at several hotel stays recently, and we have to say they're not bad. They're not for the hard core single serve coffee drinker, but for a casual coffee person these seem to fit the bill and are well reviewed.

We hadn't noticed the Keurig Mini K-Cup Brewer being produced in so many colors, but AB from Maine has found there are a ton of colors available - even purple!
My wife and I stopped by Kohl’s today in Bangor and was a little shocked to see so many different Keurig Mini’s. They had Silver, Black, red, Blue, Purple, and White. I have seen the silver, red, and black before but not the other colors.
