A Search for the Best One Cup Coffee Maker

I have pestered Dunkin Donuts operators from Maine to Florida with a hundred questions. I paid outrageous prices and begged for coffee beans from a dozen greasy spoons suspected as repositories of the secret knowledge, and from more than a few four star hotel kitchens where a seven dollar cup of coffee just has to be more than a common beverage.

I have thrown a handful of coffee grounds into a saucepan of boiling water. I have measured with gram scales to 1/100 accuracy, and digital thermometers so accurate that they change when you breathe. I have pressed, percolated, dripped and immersed more times than any sane person should.

I am nearly ready to admit that the perfect one cup coffee maker is beyond the reach of current technology. Perhaps beyond the reach of all carbon based life forms. If there ever is a message from SETI it will be an alien one cup coffee maker brand name that will perplex the scientific community for centuries.

Nearly, I say. There are still a few models of one cup coffee makers for which Amazon and epinions reviewers remain strangely silent. Perhaps those coffee machines really do not exist and the ads are meant to throw me off the trail. Maybe the purchasers have been compelled into silence. Let us not forget that the greatest human brain in history, Isaac Newton, succumbed to vapors while pursuing the Philosophers’ Stone. Some knowledge is so fantastic that merely possessing it is the richest reward.

Maybe the best one cup coffee maker is not a coffee maker at all. It may be disguised as a new Braun Tassimo hot beverage system. We have known for years that no human being can match the consistently excellent results of an electric rice cooker. Why over reckon a simple task?

You fill a huge tank with water every few days. Insert a disc of Arabica or a disc of some fancy -ppuccinno or -presso and the Tassimo reads the disc bar code, figures the water amount, water temperature, and brewing time in its small silicon brain, and delivers one cup of hot beverage in about a minute. Can this be the best one cup coffee maker?
