One Hit Wonder?

Entrepreneurs quickly caught onto the idea of a single cup coffee maker and began producing their own versions that were smaller, faster and according to consumers, better.
When the single cup coffee maker was first made, it was highly priced and difficult to get a hold of except in specialty stores and specific retailers online. As their popularity increased, they became available in almost any major retail store, online, and in coffee shops.

Tell Me More
The invention of the single cup coffee maker appears to be a godsend to those who sear by their morning routing of rolling out of bed to the aromatic essence of their cup ‘o’ Joe. Most traditional coffee makers brew eight to twelve cups of coffee which presents two main problems to many people.
Often times people will drink one or two cups of coffee and the remaining six or ten cups go to waste because once the drinker returns home, the coffee that has been sitting all day turns to a tar-like substance that is un-drinkable and to anyone with functional taste buds. On the flip side, there are those that can’t bear to watch a single drop go to waste, so they chug the entire pot before they leave for they day and wonder why they are left feeling jittery and have trouble concentrating.
Single cup coffee makers solve both of those problems and then some. They also allow you to brew yourself and your mates a piping hot cup of coffee in less than a minute any time you want.
