Need a great small coffee maker for my mom

Mandy Nov 30, 2012 10:44 AM

I'm looking for something that will grind and brew and is relatively simple to use. Prefer a 2 or 4 cup capacity, as it's just for one person. I've looked in a few stores and can only find the premeasured coffee, which I don't care for. Thanks for any help.

    The Zojirushi EC-DAC50 Zutto 5-Cup Drip Coffeemaker is a really good one. Add a small coffee grinder and you will have a great cup in the morning. You can get good preground coffee if want to.

      I recommend the Zojirushi EC-DAC50 too. This one has a removable water reservoir, which is very convenient and easy to clean. I used to own Cuisinart "grind and brew" type, but it was a hassle to clean and dry after each use. You can get a small Krups grinder, which I use, for $15 at BBB with a coupon.
