Info: Model KCM0402; Available in 2 Trim Colours
If you or some other single coffee drinker you care for are ready to start brewing your own coffee but have been deterred by the facts that most better machines are designed to brew a minimum of four cups at a time for good results, and some lesser smaller models are not very durable, and some of the alternatives entail a lot of packaging, environmental waste, and ongoing costs, here's the ideal solution, by a major brand. It's perfect for just one coffee drinker: a reliable machine to prepare just what you need, fresh, right into the included travel mug. Free shipping in Canada!
The KitchenAid Personal Coffee Maker is designed to make just up to 18 ounces of your favourite, not-too-finely ground coffee at once, starting with up to 20 ounces of water (in a container which is easy to fill and clean, since it's detachable), and it comes with its own reusable filter, so there's no need for either disposable filters or pods. And rather than providing a carafe which would be just one more thing to clean and require you to pour it from there to a mug, it comes with an 18-ounce Thermal Travel Mug, which it brews right into, and will be ready for you to jump into the car with. (You can also brew into other tall-sided cups, if desired.)

A tone sounds when coffee is finished brewing.
Brew Basket Door Handle
Access the removable brew basket by pulling on the handle on the side of the coffee maker. The spring-loaded door includes a latch to assure the door is closed completely.
The brew basket holds either paper coffee filters or the Gold Tone permanent filter (do not use both at the same time); this brew basket can be washed in the top rack of a dishwasher.
Gold Tone Permanent Filter
The high-performance Gold Tone filter eliminates the need for paper coffee filters (although paper filters can still be used instead, if desired); this Gold Tone Filter can be washed in the top rack of a dishwasher.
Removable Water Tank
You can add the water directly to this convenient removable water tank; it is recommended that it be hand-washed only.

Compartment in the back of the coffee maker keeps excess cord out of the way.

Just add the water to the tank, and place about 1 or 2 Tbsp. of your favorite coffee grounds per 6 ounces of water into the brew basket outfitted with either the high-performance Gold Tone filter or a paper filter, swing that into place, and place the included thermal mug (or any other coffee mug which fits) under the drip, and press the ON button to begin brewing.
