Personal Coffee Maker - Black & Decker DCM18S

by Brandy

I bought the Black & Decker DCM18S Brew 'n Go personal coffee maker 6 months ago. The unit came with a travel mug. I love large coffee makers that make 6 to 8 cups of coffee, but I am the only one who enjoys coffee at home.

For health reasons, I am trying to keep my coffee intake to less than 3 cups per day. Therefore, this mini coffee maker is perfect for me. It brews directly into the 15-ounce travel mug, and it is very convenient. It allows me to prepare my coffee to go in about 5 minutes while I get ready for work in the morning. It automatically shuts off, which is a great feature for such a simple appliance.

The unit is easy to clean. It is dishwasher safe, and it has a permanent filter, which means I do not need to purchase any disposable filters. I save a lot of time and money by using this coffee maker. I love it that I can purchase my favorite brand of ground coffee and brew my own cup at home. Coffee always tastes great, just like the ones we purchase at the coffee shop, if not better.

I also use my favorite mug with this coffee maker. As long as it fits, it works. I love having freshly brewed, hot coffee when I am reading or doing my work. This coffee maker does the job, and does it well. It saves space too, since it is compact and not bulky, unlike many other coffee or espresso machines.

The only thing I dislike about it is when I use fine ground coffee, I will end up having coffee grinds in my coffee. It is not a huge problem, though, because I really love the convenience of this small personal coffee maker.


Black & Decker Brew 'n Go coffee makerEditor's note

The Black & Decker Brew 'n Go is one of the most popular coffee makers around. There are many people who want a small coffee maker that is simpe to use and makes just one mug of coffee. This little personal coffee makers fit the bill very nicely.

It comes with a travel mug which is quite handy and it is relatively inexpensive. The customer reviews indicate that most users are very happy with the product.

One thing you should know is that Brew 'n Go uses a permanent coffee filter. The obvious advantage is that you do not ever need to buy paper filters. Another plus is that coffee will have richer taste as more aromatic coffee oils will go through the filter into your cup. A slight disadvantage is that some fine grinds may make it into your cup too.

I just cut paper towels to fit into the permanent filter and no more fine grounds in my cup!
